A Brief Guide to Buying Designer Shoes

Whether you favor flats, sneakers, or pumps, everyone loves designer shoes. With vintage, limited edition, and pop-culture-inspired designs available, finding something in high-end shops that matches your taste seems to be a fashion staple these days.

Getting Started

If you are looking to try something new, taking a good look at your existing collection of designer shoes is the best way to find the styles you prefer. Doing this also helps you obtain the best value. You certainly don’t want to end up with something that doesn’t fit your wardrobe or, worse still, is uncomfortable for you to wear. Nowadays, a lot of fashion brands offer various styles and collections. Not only do they look different, but they also function differently. So familiarizing yourself with the style, fit, and practicality of new designers in the market is a great idea.

Who Makes What

French fashion designer Christian Louboutin is famous for its superior quality materials, colors, and the use of shiny red-lacquered soles. These vibrant red soles were reportedly inspired by the view of Louboutin himself. He states that “it is a symbol of love, blood, and passion.” Although Louboutin has mastered the art of creating everything from boots to sneakers, this fashion House is most famously admired for its stiletto footwear. Top picks include the Pigalle and So Kate.
