Oxford Love

For the past year, I've been in love with Oxford style shoes, but haven't had a pair. Why? Because, with feet that hover somewhere in between sizes 10 and 11, I could find a pair in my price range that fit. Finally, all that changed with an impulse, lunch hour trip to Winners, where I found this pair by Dollhouse. The quality is quite poor, they feel flimsy and I would be surprised to they make it to next July, but I've wanted a pair for so long and I just decided to go for it. What do you think?
Is it worth it to buy "disposal fashion" in a case like this or should I have held out for the possibility of a great quality pair that will last longer? (To be honest, if I find that pair, I will buy it too). Either way, here are my new shoes and a bonus picture of me in Oxford (just because it fits and I can.

I love that style. I have to admit I found me some pretty good Sketchers..without shoe strings. & I think they just might take me through winter. They are really good for work and school.

I hope they last longer than you think. Good luck.

I don't think they look bad! If they're uncomfortable you always spruce them up with some insoles or something :)

I think you were right getting these since you've been looking for a pair for so long. I love them! And like you said, if you do find the perfect better quality pair, you can alternate between the two. Perhaps wear these when you know you won't have to walk much.
