Heel heights and toe shapes may go in and out of style, but you can never go wrong with a classic. These Marca oxfords—designed by Fremont resident Cat de Montjoye and her mother, Martha Jimenez, and crafted by artisans in their native Colombia—are a fine example of this timeless yet perfectly on-trend shoe. Construction of supple and durable leather, details such as patterned soles and textured finishes, and a moderately affordable price point set these shoes apart from the pack.
