It's the season for party shoes. And because we don’t do things by halves, we have sought out the most amazing shoes that’ll knock the competition to the curb.
Below, a curated list that covers all party grounds – glitter, high shine, fantastical, and surprisingly, even comfy. With a shoe arsenal as beguiling as this, you can recycle that dress and no one would notice.
JIMMY CHOO BING LAVISH 100 GLITTERED TULLE STILETTOS, €895 (S$1,396)
If you’ve never been sure about the sock-and-heel combo, this achingly beautiful pairing of tulle and silk satin might just be your excuse to give the trend a shot. A spin-off of the ankle boot, except it's so much more delicate, it pairs especially well with narrow pencil skirts – all the better to direct attention down the legs to that glittery flourish.
SOPHIA WEBSTER CHIARA D’ORSAY, S$1,150
Here’s a black pair of heels with a difference. These digitally embroidered wings are so life-like, they look ready to take flight. Don’t bother going out of your way to flaunt them – the applique is so outstanding, there’s no hiding them even if you try. Oh, did we mention that shipping to Singapore is absolutely free?
CHANEL SEQUINNED MARY JANE, S$1,620
If you’re in the market for comfortable party shoes, this might just be the answer. Outfitted entirely in sequins, this pair of Mary Janes is as sparkly as a disco ball. Its iridescent appearance makes it an easy fit with practically every colour of the rainbow, and the negligible inch-high heel allows you to be on your feet or on the dance floor, all night long.
MALONE SOULIERS X EMANUEL UNGARO MARUEEN MULE, S$539.63
Designer Roy Luwolt brought Emanuel Ungaro back on his own terms. His prim and proper Maureen mules won’t let you flaunt any toe cleavage but its ingenious construction guarantees the illusion of mile-long legs. Wear with skinny black pants to fake the look of endless legs.
PIERRE HARDY GENA SUEDE SANDAL, €650 (S$1,013)
This is one of those wild-card shoes that works with practically everything. It plays matchy-match with the coloured look you’re wearing to the Christmas party at the office. It jazzes up that all-black outfit set for New Year’s Eve. You can even take them to tea parties with that playfully pleated skirt.
MATTEO MARS NAKED ALA TWO-TONE PATENT LEATHER SLINGBACK PUMPS, S$565.77
The devil is in the details. The horn-like design is created for those with a sense of wickedness when it comes to their wardrobe. Are you ready to take a walk on the wild side?
