Must have oxfords!



Have you seen that new Verizon commercial? The one that starts with a stylish girl strolling down a city street before she stylishly checks her (presumably Verizon-serviced) phone? I have no idea what new gadget the company is marketing, but the first few frames show a close up on the girl’s truly stylish black-and-white oxford flats. My boyfriend makes fun of me every time the commercial comes on and I start obsessing.

I need those shoes.

And it turns out I’m not the only one.

If you Google “shoes from Verizon commercial,” you’ll get more than 500,000 hits. All over the Web, people are pleading on message boards for information about the oxfords that grace the commercial for those first precious seconds. 

Lots of Internet voices are pushing these $48 Urban Outfitter flats: 


Upon close inspection, those seem to be the right pair, but they seem a bit flimsy for the kind of oxfords I had in mind.

These from Steve Madden might be just right. On Amazon they range in price from about $40 to $99.


But as we all know, you can’t do any serious shoe shopping without an obligatory DSW check.

These from Restrictive Scrabble are a little different, but they caught my eye. And they’d certainly be cooler in the summer. At $34.95, they’re the best deal so far!
