In the spirit of the current Menswear/Androgynous style comes the newest trend that has showed up in all the hippest stores in Paris: Jazz shoes, Wingtips, and Oxfords.
You've already seen high heeled oxfords in every fashion magazine possible, but the lower heeled versions, along with wingtip and jazz shoes, are just starting to be noticed. They've only recently showed up on the Spring 2008 runways and on the hippest dressed celebs.
