Between its massive presence on the fall runways, the approval of a handful of our favorite It girls already, and an overall luxe appeal that lends itself perfectly to fall and winter, there’s no doubt that the velvet trend is about to blow up—even beyond what it already has. On that note, the velvet shoe, in particular, seems to be especially popular, and we can guess why. When an option, shoes are one of the best low-key ways to hit on a trend rather than investing in a one-off piece such as a dress that you’re less likely to wear over and over. That’s why, while recently scrolling through Net-a-Porter’s new arrivals, we noticed quite a few pairs of under-$200 velvet shoes and had to do a double-take. That’s right, everyone’s favorite shopping site is currently carrying a handful of exclusive pairs of Sam Edelman velvet shoes that only look ultra-expensive, and we’re betting they’ll sell out any day minute now.
