Saddle Oxfords, $375
Billy Reid, who won GQ's Best New Menswear Designer this year, is well known for his smart southern take on comfort clothes, but what you might not know is he makes a damn good pair of shoes too. Saddle shoes are obviously a style to have this fall and when I first saw these saddle oxfords at his fall presentation last February, I quickly put them on the shopping list that I keep in the back of my head. I recently secured them from his Bond Street shop here in Manhattan and couldn't be happier with them. With the heart of a shoe and the sole of a boot, they're my go to shoe, sure to get me through until spring.
