To segment oranges, cut off the stem and blossom ends and cut away the peel, following the curve of the fruit. Cut out each segment, by gently sliding your knife between the membrane walls toward center of fruit. Squeeze leftover membranes and reserve juice for vinaigrette.
Using a mandolin, carefully slice fennel bulb, paper-thin, horizontally.
Remove core from lettuces and tear into large bite-sized pieces.
For citrus vinaigrette, combine shallot, vinegars, orange juice, salt and pepper; whisk to combine. Slowly add olive oil, while whisking, until well incorporated. In a large salad bowl, toss together lettuces, fennel, orange segments, and the vinaigrette.
Serve immediately.
