Oxford (shoe)
Explanation:
"Francesina" refers to a type of shoe, which generally corresponds to what is called an "Oxford" (or sometimes "Derby") in English.
The carry-over bit (I see you have opened another question) simply indicates that this type of shoe was historically conceived for men and has been adapted to women.
