As Fashion Week approaches, the fashion editors, writers, and fans of the world will descend upon the city for a week of designer shows and after-parties, hopping from place to place in the most precarious heels possible. In spite of the often illogical shoe choices for Fashion Week, at some point the weather takes first priority. With piles of leftover snow at every corner, our options for footwear have dwindled. But thankfully, that doesn’t mean too big of a sacrifice on style. For even the most stiletto-obsessed, there are myriad options with enough pizazz to attract plenty of street peepers (such as these New Kid studded boots). And you’ll be able to hop from show to show with enough energy and style to wow at the after parties, without having to carry ballet flats in your purse. After the jump, check out the best shoes to get around during Fashion Week, and make sure to give us a shout out if you’re snapped by the Sartorialist.
Jeffrey Campbell’s suede boots ($174) are versatile and easily wearable from day to night, with a heel wide enough to prevent tripping.
If you’re unable to avoid the nasty slush at every intersection, at least keep your toes a few inches above it in these platform Rachel Comey heels ($314).
These glittery gold Nike Dunks ($108) are an unusual choice, but fashion is about taking risks. And you know every poor girl in stilettos will be silently jealous of your attention-getting shoes.
