Women's Buck Oxford
My personality is one where i buy things and if there is something wrong with it, i keep it anyway because i feel its my fault that it didn't work out. These shoes though...
The color is like a gray-ish taupe that is trying to be brown. almost exactly the color of the photo. the shoes is extremely light. It is very stiff to wear it rubbed against my ankle and i knew it would start to hurt if i wore them out and about.
I wear a size 12-12W but i bought 13 and they fit well but they pushed on my second to last toe so i knew it would rub it till it chaffed.
The blue is a cheap foam sole. the inside is nice and bright blue. It is as flat as a pancake so if you need support you will need to put it in the shoe.
I held onto them for 3 days putting them on and taking them off in the house but they look big and manly on my feet and i want something feminine. It will not look cute with a dress or skirt like a proper pair of oxfords will.
I'm still looking for some nice cognac brown oxfords and these i will be returning first thing in the morning.

Didn't Meet Expectations
I am also a size 12, and bought the shoes knowing they were going to be a bit fake looking but fun for color blocking with some skirts and skinny pants. The sole is not as brilliant blue in the photo, and looks more like foam than rubber. The fake leather is very cheap looking in real life. Pro tip: I oiled them with baby oil and it makes them look less stiff. I also plan on painting the tongue or laces since all the "pop" is lacking (dull blue soles, and hidden blue interior..I really like the interior actually, it's shiny and bright).

not what it looks like
i wear a size 12 normally but because closed toe shoes tend to be right at the tips of my toes i got these in a size 13...tip: if you buy a size up just put a heel insert in..works great..anyway, these shoes are absolutely very cheap looking. now i dont buy payless expecting them to look like real leather but these are bad. im going to keep mine. i bought mine to go with ankle pants and skinny jeans..but i wont buy them again unless the Brash manufacturers does a better job.

Almost doesn't count
I'm a size 12 in shoe and I've been wanting a pair of stylish oxfords for a while, I saw these online and fell in love right away. Then yesterday I went into a store and saw them, they look nothing like the picture though. its almost a hard dark brown plastic on a cheap bright blue sole. They are stiff and very slim cut, the tongue doesn't move because its attached to these thick elastic bands so it makes it difficult to get your foot into the shoe. and they don't breath. I put them right back. very disappointed.
