Go big or go home: statement shoes, from luxe to less


Go big or go home: statement shoes, from luxe to less

Go big or go home, it’s time to let your feet to do the talking this season in statement shoes that will have heads turning. We’re talking statement footwear in bright colours or adorned in studs and bows. They may even have distinctive textures and fabrics like satin or faux fur. You can go luxe or less, depending on what you’re looking for. There’s a Carrie Bradshaw approved statement shoe to suit every taste.

Leave your “playing it safe” mantra behind and have fun with your look, add something flashy. Statement shoes are easier to style than you think. They would make the finishing touch to a monochrome outfit that demands a required splash of colour or hint of sparkle. Your work outfit might need a pick me up or that upcoming girls night outfit may need some fancy footwear. Here are our luxe to less picks.


Time for a little splurge? We're going head over heels for these lavish numbers.

Prefer to buy both a heel and a flat pair of statement shoes? We're loving the pops of bright colour and abundance of texture with feather, satin and fur details. Not to mention all the glitz with crystal and gem accents.
