Balenciaga Derby Oxfords

This season's trend for ladies' footwear is the Oxford! It is a true "love it or hate it" style, but with the right outfit it can definitely look cute and snazzy.  Balenciaga is following the trend by releasing their own version of the oxford shoe.  Departement Feminin has received this style in black and is retailing for 390 Euros (~$537 USD).  If you look closely, Balenciaga has added their trademark characteristic by adding their beautiful perforation trim to the shoe.  This is the same trim that is on their Ballet flats and on their Giant Covered Hardware bags and small leather goods.

My take? I'm a total fan, and I love the looks you can achieve with this shoe. I would love to splurge on a pair by Bal, but will probably wait until there is a sale on this one!
