Shoe of the Day at Milan Fashion Week: Giorgio Armani’s Opulent, Jewel-Toned Slippers

FN takes a look at the standout shoe styles from Milan Fashion Week.

Day 6 (Feb. 27)

Giorgio Armani’s luxe logoed smoking slippers were just the thing to round off Milan Fashion Week. They came in opulent jewel shades of velvet to match the ready-to-wear and proved that the cocktail flat will doubtless be an enduring trend for fall.

Day 5 (Feb.26)

For his debut runway outing as Salvatore Ferragamo’s new design director of footwear, Paul Andrew reworked the house’s classic F wedge heel with glove upper and gold accent — lacquered using car factory technology. “It’s the most amazing construction,” he told Footwear News earlier this year, “you feel like you’re walking on air when you wear it.”

Day 4 (Feb. 25)

Fashion loves a hybrid, and the ruched rainboot brogues that Tomas Maier showed in Milan on Saturday were bang on the money. Done in both black and a rich shade of oxblood, they came in both over-the-knee and ankle-length models and opened the show teamed with matching leather gauntlets and jodhpur pants.

Day 3 (Feb. 24)

For fall, Marco de Vincenzo gave classic notions of femininity a cosmic twist. This kitten heel bootie, with its dainty black bow and glitter frosting, perfectly articulated his reference point: the idea of a “hypothetical future” as seen by someone living in the past.

Day 2 (Feb. 23)

There was a whole lot to love on the Prada runway, including jewel-embellished pumps and maxed-out furry snow boots. But it was the buckled thigh-high boots that won hearts and minds. Done in a beguiling patchwork of suede and snakeskin or suede and embroidered leather, they fused Seventies, Navaho and equestrian aesthetics into one glorious lesson in must-have leather.


Day 1 (Feb. 22)

Alessandro Michele’s cactus flower boots are the fall footwear update that Gucci fans have been waiting for. They came in both black and white versions, with an embossed leather motif traced in pinhead studs. For extra style points, wear them with red lace footless tights and unleash your inner Dolly Parton.
