Every woman deserves a pair of luxury shoes that transcend seasons and last forever due to their high quality. Shop for these designer shoes - from heels to flats, and suede to leather - in Singapore
Whether you’re dressing glitzy for a dinner date or just love looking like you’re glammed up for the red carpet, there’s always a reason to get your money’s worth and invest in a pair of designer shoes from brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Moschino. From having a thing for the red soles of Christian Louboutin to the chic stylings of Manolo Blahnik, these long-lasting, luxury shoes are the perfect statement pieces you need in your wardrobe.
This Fall/Winter 17 beauty deserves a shout. I admit, this pair of Mulacramp shoes ($1,540) caught my eye the moment I was introduced to the latest Christian Louboutin F/W17 arrivals. Fall in love with the wavy shapes carved into the 140mm wedge, and fit into this black leather and Louboutin-red suede slide, decorated with a vintage specchio leather insole. Heads will be turning as you strut down town in these babies.

Nothing screams chic “Glitz and Glam” more than bling from head to toe – literally. Go all out with Manolo Blahnik’s Okkaraldus, a pair of satin jewelled flat mules ($1,768) that come in grey, pink and navy, embellished with Swarovski crystal detailing. As Manolo Blahnik’s collection is based on Italian sizes, we’d recommend getting half a size bigger than your usual shoe size.
Manolo Blahnik, #01-25/26/27, Takashimaya, 391 Orchard Road, Singapore 238873, p. 6238 2311; Open 10am-9.30pm daily.
Wearing a pair of shoes from this Italian luxury footwear brand is guaranteed to give you the extra glam factor. One look, and you’ll understand why; from the understatedly sexy stilettos to the saucy knee-high boots, to the iconic signature must-haves like the Gianvito pump, the Plexi pump, the Portofino sandal and the flat sandals, (starting from $880). Or be a glittering queen with the Ruffle Heel ($1,350), and totally steal the spotlight!

Go for a sophisticated, elegant look with Louis Vuitton’s Last Dance sandals and Monumenta ankle boots and cross sandal, as well as the Night Bloom sandal. These sexy pieces come in black and blush with a contrasting design on the block heels, and are both comfy and stylish – great for a day-to-evening look. The Night Bloom sandals are another set of darlings that come in different colours, styles and heel height, and are the perfect footwear for a dinner date.

When it comes to statement pieces, Moschino wins by a landslide. These stiletto pumps are made from soft leather with a suede effect, and are beautifully embellished with a skeletal buckle on the front – great for spicing your evening wear without being all up-in-your-face as this high-fashion label is known for.

Known for its historical one-of-a-kind craftsmanship in the world of luxury ballet shoes, get ready to release your inner ballerina with Repetto’s Fall/Winter 17 shoe collection which is a mix of oriental notes and greatly inspired by the classic One Thousand and One Nights tales, as well as the mysterious Shèhèrazade. We absolutely adore Repetto’s Anna in Bindi Noir ($490) which plays around the shape of a ballet shoe, and its eye-popping colour is a perfect juxtaposition to a monotone outfit.
