While it’s all still fresh in our minds (and you still have time to save up), we feel it’s our civic duty to bring you our pick of the best shoes of the fall collections.
Tricked-out with mini mohawks and studded to a fare-thee-well, these pink Prada numbers were the most wildly inventive anti-recession shoes of the season.
Dries Van Noten ushered in a welcome return to the super-chic pump, but with a bit of plot twist: an exotic snakeskin heel and last.
Slightly slouchy and insanely sexy, these thigh-high boots by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte were a perfect partner for sky-high hems.
Jet black wasn’t the only game in town. Yves Saint Laurent’s ruby red, spindly-heel stunner is an instant classic, the shoe you’ll want to wear every day come fall.
Peek-a-boo cutouts and a glam horn heel add extra sizzle to Christian Dior’s fashionable lace-up.
These boots were made for walking: paired with everything from floaty frocks to tweedy cropped trousers, Burberry served up the ultimate all-weather platform.
Lanvin’s racy red pumps are gussied-up with mirror accents and a beyond-artsy, curvilinear heel.
A pop of cobalt at the toe and grey suede ties add a dose of 80s cool to Balenciaga’s woven leather, ankle-high shoes.
Playful and tres Parisienne, Louis Vuitton’s glitter- and pearl-bedecked shoes added a flirty accent to the classic collection.
