Despite sultry temperatures, our attention has turned from tanks and sandals to the steady stream of fall merchandise trickling into stores. These shoes toe the line between spring's trendy cutout styles and conservative Oxfords. The lace-up detail and whiskey-brown leather add a bit of old-school charm to workday basics — call it granny in a good way. But it’s the chunky, four-inch heel that makes these kicks both sophisticated and sturdy enough for stomping around town.
Fine-Cut Oxfords, $129 at Anthropologie.com.
