But F-Troupe has you and your digits covered with their take on the lace-up shoe: a Fosse-esque version done in casual canvas. Maybe you’ve avoided the whole oxford look until now, but we’d encourage you to give this interpretation a go, especially since we’re loath to see all those floral spring dresses with flip-flops. The thirties flavor of these works so much better, and you’ll definitely look like you’re Puttin’ on the Ritz, without spending a million dollars.
