We don’t need to tell you a spectacular shoe always makes an entrance. Fortunately, this Fall there’s a bounty of sumptuous footwear fit for fashion royalty. Plush velvet, shimmering satin, luxe brocade and extravagant embellishment… these styles reign supreme.

By now you’ve heard velvet is the thing. A big thing, as most designers incorporated it into their collections this season. Miuccia Prada was a standout on that fabric front and her platform sandals in a rich red or navy are a covetable way to tap into the trend.


Veronica Etro paid tribute to her youth in London with an energetic yet effortless day-to-night collection. Her velvet Mary Jane pumps with ribbon detail have an innovative spirit and desk-to-dinner versatility.


If you like your velvet to really command a room, try on a pair of Alexander McQueen’s embellished ankle-strap pumps. Crystal and beaded motifs from the ’30s and ’40s decorate this standout style.


A season standout is Jimmy Choo’s Kia 110 embroidered lace booties. This intricately detailed, ultra-seductive style is designed for your biggest nights out. Driver absolutely required.


What’s more royal than sumptuous fur? Salvatore Ferragamo’s leather woven heels are trimmed with lavish mink detail. Not to mention, the emerald and black color combo pops.


Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall show was a celebration of fairy tale fantasies, including shoes in printed brocade and satin that a modern-day princess would undoubtedly wear. Debut these leather floral pumps with crystal embellishment at your next cocktail event.


For the crown jewel of your shoe closet, look to Sergio Rossi. The skyscraping Tamara Sandals in gleaming gold are covered in dazzling crystals.
