As much as we all try to diversify our shoe collections, there's no denying that the most-worn shoes in all of our closets are and always will be black shoes. But the good news is that black doesn't have to mean boring. More than ever, we've come across pair after pair of cool black shoes with interesting details like feathers, pearl embellishment, crushed velvet, and a statement-making heel, just to name a few. And the beauty of black shoes is, that unlike other colors, even the most affordable of options oftentimes look more expensive than they are, which is music to any shoe fiend's ears.
This season, some of our favorite fall shoe trends are brilliantly represented in the newest footwear options on the market, such as the luxe slouch boots at Stuart Weitzman and Loeffler Randall's embellished kitten heel mules. So if you need new black shoes (and who doesn't?), you might want to grab your wallet—serious temptation awaits.
