So, here’s the deal. We’ve got nine pairs of shoes, valued at over $3,000, from amazing designers like Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Intentionally Blank, Rachel Comey, LOQ, Ariana Bohling, LD Tuttle and A Bronze Age. And since it wouldn’t be fair to keep such things all to ourselves, we decided to give them all away to one lucky sole — ahem, soul. You read that right — our Essential Fall Shoe Closet could be yours for the keeping. Before you enter to win, read on to find out why you won’t be able to live without these babies.
1. Rachel Comey Mars Boot
If you don’t already have a pair in your arsenal, get on it. The Rachel Comey Mars Boot (care of Nonna boutique in Los Angeles) has been a mainstay for cool girls ever since the designer’s signature style was introduced years ago. They’re made with 100% leather, have a stacked heel and are an everyday essential you can wear with jeans, a skirt, dresses, jumpsuits…. You know, basically everything.
2. Maryam Nassir Zadeh Heeled Brogue
The Flavia Heeled Brogue from shoe goddess Maryam Nassir Zadeh (care of Swords-Smith boutique in Brooklyn) is an elevated version of the classic shape. The lace-up heel is one of those elegant ladylike styles that takes notes from menswear for a sleek, sophisticated feel. We love them for off duty and on, but they definitely need to be an option for your office heel rotation this season.
3. Martiniano Glove
The “It shoe” of the last year, adding a pair of these babies will seriously up your style game. With a high instep, almond toe and a shape that can be worn with literally anything and anything, Martiniano’s Glove (care of Umeboshi boutique in Vancouver) works for Fall and every season that comes after it.
4. LOQ Suede Square Toe Boot
Meet your new favorite boot: suede, square toe, block heel, fitted at the ankle and all kinds of amazing. The LOQ Lazaro Boot is an all-leather ankle boot that has us feeling nostalgic for the ’70s and is right on trend for this season’s love affair with the decade.
5. Intentionally Blank Velvet Flat
Velvet was huge on the runways for FW16, so a pair of pretty flats is the perfect way to add the luxe trend to your everyday wardrobe. The Eliza Flat from Intentionally Blank is featured in a pop of color, lined with leather and all around amazing to both the touch and the eye.
6. A Bronze Age Fuzzy Babouche
Have we mentioned how much we love slippers you can wear outside the house? These fuzzy babouches from A Bronze Age are pretty much the coziest shoes ever. Wear all day both at home and on the street.
7. A Bronze Age Suede Babouche
A Bronze Age is also responsible for these perfect suede babouches that you’ll never want to take off. And a sleek alternative to the fuzzy pair.
8. Ariana Bohling Low Slung Bootie
Sleek and feminine, with a fitted glove-like silhouette and quirky cone heel, the Ariana Bohling Bedford is the ultimate finishing touch. These shoes are all lady.
9. LD Tuttle Mule
The mule, in every iteration, has come out as one of the most significant shifts in silhouette for shoes over the past year alongside. The Boxer mule boot from LD Tuttle is made with 100% goat skin, has a stacked heel and gives a fall flavor to your summer slip on. One two punch.
