On a search for a pair of work-appropriate oxfords, I took a cue from my fifth grade self and decided to go with a pair of bucks. The Bass Ely-2 fit the description of what I was looking for: neutral in color, minimal in profile, and priced under $100.
I went with the "sea rock" color, which is more of a taupe with the tiniest tinge of green. The gum sole has a bit of a purple tint that really pops against the suede upper, but doesn't make too loud of a statement. You might want to go with the wide width if you don't have narrow feet.
