Dance floor distractions: 9 statement shoes to rock to a party
Fancy footwear for fancy footwork
Here are 9 pairs of shoes that will kick off a night to remember.
When marimba rhythms start to play, these will dance, these will sway. Embellished with airy plumes that waltz to the wind, the silver Prada mules above would make for a dance partner like no other. And if feathery plumage does not suffice, the slanted footbed will give you a sensual arch and gait that's bound to captivate.
These boots aren't made for walking—they're made for dancing. Putting a mirrorball to shame, the Saint Laurent Niki slouch crystal-embellished boots will shine the spotlight on you. FYI, both Rihanna and Celine Dion have been seen in these dazzlers.
Prove the dance floor is your stomping ground in a pair of super chunky, electric blue Marques' Almeida crocodile-effect leather platform boots. The elasticated panels make them easy to put on but the flat soles make them comfortable enough that they'd be difficult to take off.
Because wearing pink is no longer reserved for Wednesdays, dive feet first into the waist-high shockers that are the Vetements + Manolo Blahnik satin boots. Lined with supple leather, they're easier to slide into than you'd think.
Glitter is definitely making waves on the fashion radar. Not sure how the No. 21 bow-front glittered-leather slides will hold up over a few rounds of the 'Electric Slide' but we can't resist a pair that serves up both comfort and style. Just keep those feet grounded and let the sparkle do the talking.
Old is gold and there's nothing like doing the boogie in truly comfy kicks. Ditch the heels and get down in gold Gucci Ace metallic-trimmed glittered sneakers. Don't be deceived by the whisical quality they exude, every pair of Gucci shoes is a testament of the excellent craftsmanship of the house's Italian atelier.
Pump up the glamour in Sophia Webster's Coco leather pumps. While exuding lustrous sophistication from heel to toe, these high-shine beauties elevate the classic silhouette with an inventive touch of embellishment on the stiletto heel and are on trend with the rose-gold hued patent leather.
Got dance moves that deserve a few hurrahs? Don't wait for the cheersquad to arrive, shake those pompoms yourself with Aquazzura's velvet 'Powder Puff' pumps. And after the Saturday shimmy, dust them off and throw on a pair of cropped jeans to match. Sunday brunch getup, sorted.
Speaking of brunch, we like our booties the same way we like our drinks—laced. These velvet Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe ankle boots feature oversized metal eyelets and plush burgundy laces that bring a touch of twenties opulence and a riff on rock and roll.
