While the women's and men's versions vary, they feature the same technology that makes them supremely comfortable. For example tri-layered foam cushioning makes the shoes impressively easy to wear and walk in. There's also a durable and lightweight outsole with rubber flex grooves, providing underfoot comfort and a natural feel.

The women's oxford in the collection is made with a breathable stitched upper, and it includes an internal bootie that provides a sock-like feel. You'll find these shoes in Marine Blue, Black with Jaguar Haircalf, Dove with Python Print, and White. Small details like subtle strips of color along the heel add just enough flair while still allowing the shoes to be a neutral wardrobe staple.
