Shoe of the Day at New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs’ Mega Platform Boots

We’re taking a look at the standout styles to hit the fall ’17 runways.

Day 8
Marc Jacobs ditched a traditional runway presentation today, showing his fall ’17 collection on the sidewalks of New York instead. In addition to slouchy boots, he debuted traffic-stopping platform boots — a continuing style for him — in a new, subdued palette including brown and black.

Day 7
Thom Browne banged out another theatrical show today. The designer looked to ice skates this season, fusing the silhouette with dress shoe uppers for a very unexpected runway shoe. They were fun, thoughtful and, weirdly, very on brand. Serious balance skills required.

Day 6
Creative director Stuart Vevers continued his spunky new look for Coach at the label’s fall ’17 coed show today. The show featured a glam-meets-rugged vibe, with shearlings and lumberjacks plaid blending into the prairie set. He even extended the theme down to the shoes, where sneakers had chunky lug soles and rubber dock boot toecaps. They’re perfect for the adventure seeker — who loves luxury fashion, too.

Day 5
Designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia — the duo behind Monse — debuted their first collection as artistic directors for Oscar de la Renta today. The collection paid respect to the label’s sophisticated, uptown customer, yet made great strides towards spicing things up a bit. The eveningwear, naturally, shined — there were elegant chiffon gowns in neon yellow, or sequinned tea-length dresses. Footwear designer Daniel Lawler took in the new energy, too, embellishing below-the-knee boots with shimmering crystals. They were ornate, cool and, as always, very special.

Day 4
Joseph Altuzarra debuted a surprisingly punky collection at New York Fashion Week Sunday. The designer made use of less pretty, more edgy details for fall including deep red velvets, leather moto pants and striped tailored suits. To drive the new look home, he showed over-the-knee, lace-up combats boots with some of the more feminine looks. Call it (super) polished grunge.

Day 3
Tibi’s Amy Smilovic debuted a menswear-inspired collection today. While the ready-to-wear was all about tailoring, shape and new interpretations of suits — the skirted suit is here to stay — her punchy shoes stole the show. For instance: Crushed velvet slingback pumps, offered in hot pink, made the workwear looks less humdrum, more hot.

Day 2
Designer Raf Simons debuted his first collection for Calvin Klein today. The coed show featured a bold unisex message, with looks appearing twice on both men and women. Within the women’s offering, though, Simons showed architectural pumps and sandals, which had sculpted backs that were folded. It’s like origami for your feet.

Day 1

Adam Selman’s fall ’17 collection may have toyed with sweet floral embroideries and prints, but there was nothing sweet about the shoes. Shown alongside his peach suits and feminine dresses, the designer showed staggering platform heels that lent a racier vibe to the collection. Embellished red platforms, for instance, were paired with hot pink socks — a combo so wrong, it’s almost right.
