The 6 Most Timeless Shoes to Invest In

It's perfectly understandable to want to know how many seasons of wear you'll actually get out of a new shoe purchase. Sure, glitter shoes, for example, may be everywhere right now, but will they feel as fresh two years from now? We prefer a little more assurance than time will tell before spending a chunk of cash on a new pair of shoes. And that's why we consulted one of our go-to experts on all things shopping-related: Net-a-Porter's retail fashion director, Lisa Aiken.

Since Aiken is at the pulse of what's in, out, and here to stay, who better to tell us which shoe styles are the most timeless and investment-worthy? For starters, Aiken spelled out what it is that makes a shoe timeless, telling us, "To me, timeless shoes have a distinctive quality, such as intricate detailing."

Keep reading to find out exactly which shoe styles fit that description and are the most worthy of investing in, according to Aiken (who has our complete sartorial trust), and shop the recommended styles.

You can now say so long to wasting money on shoes.
