The classic ballerina has never been so captivating. For fall ’17, French Sole New York elevated its popular ballet flat with a two-and-a-half-inch block heel covered in hammered gold. And for extra panache, the Trance X pump is adorned with ultra-soft Spanish velvet for a look that could grace any palace ballroom.

Raf Simons and right-hand man Pieter Mulier debuted their first line for Calvin Klein at New York Fashion Week last month. But forget about making an entrance — their tangerine Deco pumps were all about the exit. The suede fall ’17 style, with plastic vamp, features folded backs that take cues from the art of origami. In these heels, you’ll be the talk of the party, even on your way out.

For fall ’17, Rebecca Minkoff is ready to rock ’n’ roll. “The collection is inspired by Anita Pallenberg and the Rolling Stones’ famed cross-country U.S. tour,” said the designer. And indeed, this ribbon-laced Selena bootie, with crystal stargazer embroidery, is built to play all night long.

There is no want for whimsy in footwear right now, but few have been at it as long as Charlotte Olympia Dellal — or accomplish it with such panache. For pre-fall, the designer took cues from Britain’s quintessential personalities, from the regal to the rebellious, to create this chunky heeled laceup.

Check out Sandra Choi’s disco remix. The Jimmy Choo designer defied categorization with the pre-fall Hustle 100 mule, a retro-tinged silhouette inspired by modern-day rock ingénues. With its tough-girl studs and playful metallic Galaxy print on leather, the look broadcasts an anything-goes attitude that’s straight out of Studio 54.

Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 debuted an over-the-top take on hiking gear at their Milan Fashion Week show, embellishing boots with metal bear-trap clasps and piles (and piles) of crystals.

Pablo Coppola truly elevated the flip-flop silhouette with this Bally showpiece sandal, inspired by the traditional pokkuri platforms worn by an apprentice geisha. While the sturdy flatform might perhaps be difficult to navigate, the look is a reminder that great design always pushes the limits.

Love Sorel’s iconic Caribou boot but wish it were just a tad sexier? Enter the Dacie Lace style. For fall ’17, the brand has refashioned its classic winter silhouette entirely in waterproof leather, outfitting it with a platform lug sole, sturdy stacked heel and shearling lining. Bring on the cold, because this boot is hot.
