Meanswear-inspired and mirrored details have been showing up on fashion runways a few seasons and footwear like oxfords, brogues and loafers are trends that are still going strong. When Prada’s brogue-meets-platform hit runways a couple seasons ago, we fell in love with the funky-polished look and found a similar style within budget which we got some great wear out of, season-to-season.

Not only do they reflect light beautifully but their sporty white outsole provides just enough height with a gradual 1-2″ platform (front to back) and they pair well with any warm weather outfit: shorts, dresses, jeans, skirts, etc. They’re also the perfect compliment to any fall outfit, especially anything all-black (our favorite) so this polished look will be on repeat, again.

Did we mention they come with compliments? No joke – every time we hit the streets wearing these polished-mirrored brogues, compliments pour in from both men and women, “I love your shoes.”  So if you haven’t tried one of these polished styles, check out the new and updated versions below (some are also available in black) which will transition well into upcoming seasons. After all, metallic accessories, including menswear-inspired items, are still going strong.

Happy reflections!
