Platform Oxfords?

Over the past year I have noticed an increasing interest in women wearing oxford shoes. I personally have never been much of a fan (I’m a heels girl) but these platform oxfords by Prada might just change my mind. Prada has always been known for their quirky designs and when it came to shoes for RTW Spring 2011 they haven’t disappointed. They remind me of moon shoes for the trendy space girl. Haute couture astronaut-wear?

In a perfect world I’d be able to buy the Prada oxfords. In a realistic world I can afford these $85 metallic Sperry boat shoes. I’ve owned a pair of boat shoes before and they are convenient and comfortable but I never looked at them as fashionable. Maybe this metallic pair would the perfect addition to my shoe collection?
