I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I have a thing for shoes. Out of everything I end up purchasing in my closet, shoes win out as one of the pieces I’ll splurge on—perhaps matched only my bags. I see them as a true staple that get tons of wear and can really transform an outfit. In fact, I count some of my designer shoe buys—including a pair of two-tone Chanel slingbacks—among my best purchases of all time.
Over the last couple years, I’ve practically been living in house shoes and sneakers but I’m very ready to break that habit now that my calendar is filling up with events, so I’m eyeing all of the best designer It-shoes on the market. It’s no surprise that fashion insiders are already wearing some on the most in-demand styles and I’m here to share which ones are worth the investment. Ahead, introducing the 9 major next designer It-shoes.
