For your Boyfriend





Or maybe for your gay best friend? I don't often write about men's fashion, but I pass these candy-colored oxfords by Cole Haan nearly everyday on my two-block walk from my office to the Bar Method studio where I work out.

It's a treacherous walk, full of temptations: Intermix, Cynthia Rowley, All Saints and (worst of all) a brand new Rag & Bone outpost. But I digress. It's the Cole Haan window that has been drawing my eye for the past few weeks.

Sure, there's a women's version of the oxford, but there's something so fresh about a man's shoe with  some color. I just wish the men in my life could share in my excitement. My boyfriend would never go for these, nor would my dad. But they would be just perfect for a certain local Twitter phenom! Bostonians, can you guess who I'm talking about?

  5. Brogues and bright colours and just a winning combination. But I agree, I can't see many men embracing this...

  8. I am a huge fan of men's shoes, especially oxfords. Hmm.. I wonder if I could convince hubby to rock a bright pair like this!

  14. I'm going to buy one for my husband.  I was flipping through Cole Haan the other day when I told him that I wanted to get him a pair.  He's lovely, really, cuz he shrugged and said, he figured I would.  The grey and yellow would be good for him. Though I would prefer to get him the yellow....
