Question: What is the best way to step into the new season? New shoes! Literally! While sneakers seem to be the de riguer these days with the rise of the unserious trends – sweatpants, merch shirts, hoodies, boob bags etc. – and the Yeezys and Fentys of the world, we say that there’s always never not an occasion for dressier, head-turning shoes. Plus, if the rest of your look is so chill, an elevated shoe gives you that street style-approved chalk-and-cheese contrast. You’ll be so fashion.
Enter these 15 pairs of super-swanky, slightly girly, not-to-terrible-to-walk-in shoes! We don’t know if it was our subconsciousness at work, but we seem to have thrown in shoes that align with some of fall’s biggest trends – satin, patent and velvet. Because we’re completely aware that payday was over a week ago and your “For Frivolous Spending” jar is already half of what it should be, we’ve kept all 15 pairs of shoes under $150. Wait, what? UNDER $150, you say? Yeah guuuuurl, we got your back. So, what do you say – shall we crown this day Treat Yo’ Self Friday?
