Most Stylish Studded Heels That Take Your Style Up a Notch

A pair of shoes with studs effortlessly edges up a look. You can style studded heels with jeans to joggers to a dress or skirt. So with that in mind, we did some research and rounded up a few of our favorite options on the market featuring pointy and non-pointy stud detailing. We selected our picks, which include a sleek stiletto pump, sandal and ankle boot, from well-respected, popular companies like Lucky Brand, Steve Madden and Sam Edelman. Each has a smooth suede surface with subtle stud accents and a heel measuring over 3 inches high.
