    A python shoe will get a lot more mileage than you think possible.  The pattern fades to a neutral and goes with everything.

    Clear Trim Pump

    The easy way to fake the d’orsay.  Go for a plexi-trim pump.   Did we mention how good they look with leather trousers

    Mid-Heel Slip-Ons

    Consider the faux flat.  With a slight lift, a slip-on loafer such as this is as elegant as any heel, but just as comfortable as a sneaker

    Gold Platforms

    Metallic shoes are surprisingly versatile if you choose to see them that way.   The trick to wearing a gold shoe during the day?  Keep it ladylike, with a midi skirt and cashmere pullover.

    Stay ahead of the fashion pack with a  futuristic creeper that’s Harajuku street style by way of St. Marks Place punk.

    Brown Stacked Heel Ankle Boots

    A common misconception of the classic brown ankle boot is that it’s indigenous to Coachella and the like.   Truth: it’s just as comfortable with a black jersey dress on a city street.
