From Maria Grazia Chiuri’s goddess sandals at Dior to a new sustainable “see-now, buy-now” collaboration from Viktor & Rolf and Amina Muaddi’s inspired new accessory for Alexandre Vauthier, we bring you the most beautiful shoes of Paris Couture Week spring ’20.
The wheat ear, an ancient symbol of female power and creativity, was beautifully fashioned onto delicate braided sandals. The motif also appeared on earrings, necklaces and belts.
FN’s 2019 Designer of the Year, Amina Muaddi, collaborates with her friend Alexandre Vauthier on his label’s shoes. These new cone heel slouch boots with their crystal pom-pom will put a swing in your step. We are also fans of the diamond-shaped accessory she made to symbolize Vauthier’s AV initials.
Meanwhile, Muaddi’s favorites were T-strap heels, worn on the runway by Bella Hadid.
They didn’t make it onto the feet of Gigi Hadid or Kaia Gerber, but these black-and-white lace-up shoe boots were a lovely take on the classic Chanel cap-toe pump.
These measuring tape sandals by Daniel Roseberry were a typically surreal take on the label’s “Shocking” perfume bottle made in 1937.

Viktor & Rolf
Those who managed to drag their eyes away from the fake face and body tattoos with those #inspirational quotes would have spotted this footwear collaboration with Melissa. The Brazilian brand’s signature recyclable plastic jelly shoes came as cute Mary Janes with couture-appropriate Broderie Anglaise lace detailing. Following the show, a limited selection went on sale at the Viktor & Rolf online concept store. #grateful.
With the drama of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s gowns — not to mention the earrings — a spindly strappy sandal wouldn’t have cut it, but the satin ankle cuffs made for a perfect balance.
Iris Van Herpen
The designer can always be trusted to deliver on the footwear front — and these cantilever platforms would be perfect for Lady Gaga.
