Rhinesone heel counter
What says youthful, fun, fashionable and elegant all the same time if it’s not well designed, well-placed bling on a long stiletto heel?

Microfibre back shaft
Tall boots can be a nightmare if you have calves, or if your calves are a little thicker at the top than at the bottom. Not so with the 5050. The microfibre back shaft gives just enough stretch to provide a hugging, perfect fit. No more struggling to get a side zipper up and no more settling for lace-ups only, thanks to Weitzman’s thoughtful design.

Over the knee
How can a boot that rises above the knee be comfortable? Smart design is the answer.

Criteria for Evaluating the Best Designer Shoes

fashion-957158_1920

Quality Materials & Build

Top shoe designers make it to the top of the fashion world for two reasons. First, they have amazing creativity when it comes to designing shoes that are eye-catching and stylish.  Second, they understand that looks are not enough. Quality material and build are also important. This is why people keep coming back to the biggest names over and over again from Stuart Weitzman to Badgley Mischka, the best build the best and no detail is overlooked.

There are some common features to a high-quality shoe and the first is the engineering.

  • These shoes will not fall apart easily, seams are well incorporated, where appropriate the insides are lined with a quality material like leather, and heels are well designed to both fit into the lines of the shoe and stay stable.
  • The shoes are well balanced and the fit is as perfect as it can be. Stitching will be even and not abrasive.

Second are the materials.

  • Leather comes in varying degrees of quality and a good designer leather shoe will use only the highest quality leather. This applies to other materials as well.
  • Rubber will be high quality and thickened for durability and traction.
  • Satins will be well-woven and attached perfectly to the underside. There will be no dye marks and colors will last.

The investment you are making in a designer shoe demands quality and all of the designers on our list produce quality.  It’s a terrific match!

fashion-1838974_1920

Style

For the amount of money that you spend on a designer shoe, you are also demanding style. Nothing boxy or gaudy, nothing that appears cheaply made or made with little thought to how it will look on your foot. You’ve carefully selected the other pieces of your wardrobe and you want a shoe that will complete or maybe even make the look.

Style is partly subjective (what you like) and partly objective (what scientists will tell you are natural inclinations toward certain aesthetics). An appealing look with be symmetrical and if off-symmetry it will have a pattern that is pleasing to the eye. For example:

  • The glass crystals on the Louboutin’s are asymmetrical but the flow of the crystals is very appealing to the eye.
  • The 5050s are asymmetrical from the side but symmetrical in every other way.
  • These small details are incredibly important to determine what makes for great style. These details are also consistent over time.

Subjective style can change with the times and the age group who is targetted. Big, bold colors and beautiful rhinestone detailing are appealing to some while classic but muted color and fine, subtle detail are appealing to others. Subjective style is harder to pin down because everyone has different tastes and preferences. Whatever your personal style though – bright and bold and energetic or muted and classic, there is a top designer out there for you!

Designer Shoes

Comfort

Designer shoes are rarely designed for comfort, though some designers do ensure there are good quality comfort elements in their shoes. They are designed to be fashionable, unique and high-quality and comfort is lower on the list of priorities.

Still, they are some fine shoes that are worth every penny of the investment you put into them. Time to fill you in on a secret that people who walk the runways and red carpets know. There are so many ways to make a shoe more comfortable. Here are some of our best tips for making your new designer shoes more comfortable:

  • Fit –
    No shoe will be comfortable unless it fits properly. Be careful to read reviews to see whether the shoe fits a little larger or smaller, if they fit wide or narrow but more importantly than this, have a podiatrist or other expert measure your feet. The more accurate the measurements, the better the fit you will find. Often designer shoes are built in countries like Italy where the sizes are slightly different than American sizes, so read sizing charts as well.
  • Insoles and footpads
    There are insoles and footpads made for every shoe and every occasion, even or those super strappy stilettos! Gel insoles and pads are the least conspicuous, and thicker insoles can be useful in boots, loafers and other closed shoes.
  • Avoid pressure points
    Pressure points can cause discomfort and sharp, agonizing pain. If your incredibly beautiful designer shoe has a pressure point that is making you uncomfortable, you can try moleskin over the point to reduce the pressure and make your foot more comfortable.
  • Foot fitness
    Keep your foot in their best shape possible, ensuring that you treat any concerns early and regularly. Dry, cracked heels will feel and perform much better, even on a 4” stiletto, if they are moisturized and callouses removed. The healthier the foot the more comfortable you will be. Enjoy a foot soak or massage when your feet are tired to get the best out of them and your shoes.
  • Be selective
    Not every foot is meant for every style of shoe. If straps cut into your ankle or toe, look for a shoe that has different straps in more appropriate locations for your foot, or choose a closed stiletto instead. Pay as much attention to detail as the top designers do and you will get so much more pleasure out of your purchase.

Purpose & Versatility

We recognize that many people will buy a designer shoe with a specific purpose or event in mind while others may purchase a designer shoe for no specific function but nevertheless they have an idea of what type of activity they will be undertaking in the shoes.  

Whether you’re purchasing a designer shoe or a sneaker for school, we recommend that you consider the purposes of the shoe before you buy. If you’re purchasing the shoes for a formal function, for example, are you going to be able to wear it for other functions as well? Can it be dressed down or dressed up a little? For example, if you’re purchasing a white shoe for your wedding, can it be dyed later on to suit other occasions? The more versatility you can get out of your shoes, the more life you will get and the more value for the investment.

Consider the season as well. Will the shoe be appropriate only in winter or only in summer? Or is it great for all seasons? Is it water resistant to spring rain?  Is it protective enough for winter? Breathable enough for summer wear?

Does the shoe require special care to make it last? Can the suede or leather be treated and conditioned with standard shoe sprays? Will the colors run or spot when wet?

The more you consider the details, the happier you will end up!   

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What brings up the cost of designer shoes?
A: Designer shoes are made of the best materials, but what makes them cost sometimes ten times as much as ordinary fashion shoes are the demand for expensive clothing in itself. Sure, the shoes are made by professionals and designed by extremely talented designers, using only the highest quality leather and material. But the name is also something you are purchasing.

Q: How do I deal with pinching in the toe-box in some of the more narrow and pointed designer shoes?
A: Choose a size up if you regularly find that your pointed toe shoes fit too tightly. Do not be fooled into buying knockoffs or replicas that are rarely, if ever, made to the same quality standards.  You will get strange sizing and shapes with cheaply made knock-off shoes.

Q: Can a high fashion designer shoe made me feel differently?
A: A great pair of shoes can make you feel incredible.  There’s no doubt that looking good can make you feel confident and on your game.

Q: Is functionality more important than style in designer shoes?
A: Functionality is extremely important as want to be able to use your shoes for long periods, whether they are the designer or not. But, the look is the focus of designers.  It’s best to check reviews and details for any investment you make and if the functionality is what you are looking for in a designer shoe, you make have more research to do than others.

Q: I love my Louboutins but the red soles are scuffed up from walking in them.  What can I do?
A:  Those soles are striking, aren’t they? Don’t fret, they soles can be touched up with products that are specifically designed to match the Louboutin red. It will take a little work and careful instruction following on your part but you can check Amazon for products that will help.

Q: The leather soles on my shoes do not offer much traction.  Help!
A:  There are a number of ways to improve the traction on leather soles. You can purchase sole pads that stick to the sole to provide traction, apply a traction spray or even scuff them up slightly to improve traction. You could also apply a small amount of hot glue to the bottom to improve traction. 

Q: The heel has come off on my stilettos.  Long story. Help!
A:  Heels can normally be repaired quite well by a reputable cobbler (shoemaker). We do not recommend attempting to repair a designer shoe yourself however if you have experience there is a lot of information out there to help you repair your shoes. Read reviews for shoe repair shops in your area or contact the manufacturer for advice. Don’t worry all is not lost!

Q: My shoes are scuffed up a little.  What can I do about the marks?
A: Most scuffs in good quality leather can be buffed out with a little effort. On patent leather, you can try gentle buffing with a good eraser. Satin shoes can be dry-cleaned, or try a little basic soda paste – mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with just enough water to make a paste. Use a soft cloth to apply the paste and gently buff out the scuff marks. Use a damp cloth to wipe off any excess and then wipe dry.
