The smart shoe/sneaker hybrid is a hard nut to crack, but Maiden Noir might have done just that with the Blackburn Leather Oxford, included as part of their Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The shoe’s soft suede upper sits atop a white rubber outsole in a package that is both smart and causal, and of course, squeaky clean. Three colour options – black, tan and navy – feature tonal wax laces and a supple tan leather lined interior with gold foil embellishment.
