We pored through the pre-fall shows looking for the next “It” shoe, or at least our next purchase. The good news? No one fell! The bad news? Shoes are still sky-high. Alberta Ferretti’s bootees feature a hidden platform and an additional ankle strap for extra wearability, while Oscar de la Renta piles on the studs on his boots and heels. Karl Lagerfeld did everything from heels that looked like upside-down Russian palaces to rhinestone-encrusted pumps at Chanel. Vera Wang and rag & bone decide to tone it down by offering menswear-inspired loafers. For these and more shoes to ogle, click ahead.
