Holiday Gift Guide: 28 Lavish Styles for the Serious Shoe Lover

With the holidays rapidly approaching, it’s time to start planning out gifts for everyone on your list — and yes, even that picky hard-to-shop-for name. Luckily, there’s a number of lavish shoes on the market that even the most discerning shopper will love.

For the sneaker collector that has everything, Buscemi’s limited-edition 100mm sneaker features 11.50 carats worth of diamonds and 18-karat gold hardware detailing. The price tag? A cool $132,000. (We told you they were lavish.)

If a six-digit price tag isn’t your jam, shoes in luxe materials will still induce wow-factor. Gianvito Rossi’s croc pump in hunter green will leave any woman happy. The same goes for Louis Vuitton’s monogrammed leather combat boot — one of the it-shoes to come out of this year — and Balenciaga’s satin pump with oversized crystal brooch (a style so ornate you might not even want to wear it).

For the stylish gents on your list, high-quality leathers and snazzy embellishments scream luxurious. Louis Leeman’s beaded loafers are the perfect shoes to ring in New Year’s Eve. Berluti’s handsome leather hikers feature a hand-burnished finish.
