From the stacked-heel loafers at Mulberry and Moschino to the metallic kicks at Julien Macdonald, there were lots of hot shoes to hit the runways at London Fashion Week — and before we head to Milan, we're rewinding a bit to celebrate the selection of chic footwear that England had to offer. We've rounded up 40 of our favorite pairs from Fall '13 for you to peruse right now; get clicking, and prepare to start drafting your wish lists.
London Fashion Week street style has been a whirlwind of covetable looks, spanning every trend from the city's well-known subversive punk style to more ladylike outfits. Of course, the clothing is only a portion of what makes an outfit pop; the right pair of shoes, bag, or jewels is what takes these enviable looks to the next level. With that in mind, we're zooming in on the best accessories London Fashion Week has to offer — click on to see them all.
There's a low-heel revolution underway, and if you need proof of its burgeoning takeover, then just look to the Fall '13 runways (Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, Sophie Theallet, and Diesel Black Gold among them), the street-style set, and the 28 pairs worth shopping now for reinforcement. Of course, as if that isn't enough, today's Burberry collection certainly drives the point home: a low heel can be as chic as the highest stiletto. Christopher Bailey's latest included classic heritage pieces, along with exaggerated prints, and tougher grommet textures — all styled with leopard-print kitten wedges (pictured below).
In effect, it's a bit of a Marie Antoinette setup — you can have your cake and eat it too — courtesy of the kind of cool-girl heels that are being offered up in lower heights. Sophistication without the pain of four-inch heels? No argument here. From the Burberry kitten wedge (so subtle) to a more regal-looking Elizabeth and James mule to Valentino's current rock-studded ankle-strap sandals, there's a low-heeled look for every style personality. And while we here at POPSUGAR love ourselves a killer heel, we couldn't be more pleased with the current change of pace. What's your stance on the low-heel revolution?
For every gorgeous look we saw on the runway at NYFW, there was a chic pair of shoes to match. We saw an emerging sandal boot trend taking off at Helmut Lang, Jason Wu, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, as well as a bevy of smart menswear-inspired flats from Tommy Hilfiger and Thakoon. There was an array of ladylike pumps at Alice + Olivia, Proenza Schouler, and Carolina Herrera and tons of tough ankle boots at Belstaff and Altuzarra. We've rounded up our most-loved pairs for you to pore over now — click through to see our favorites from New York Fashion Week and stay tuned as we add more fabulous footwear from London, Milan, and Paris!
Not even a full-fledged New York City blizzard could deter the Fashion Week crowd from donning their prettiest, coolest, and sexiest footwear. From the Lincoln Center tents to Milk Studios, these attendees made a head-to-toe commitment to fashion, right down to their statement stilettos, booties, high-wattage sneakers, and slick loafers and brogues. The footwear of choice this season? Besides the quintessential black booties, we spotted Winter-perfect knee-highs (and thigh-highs!), crisp white pumps, flashes of metallics, and cool-girl high-tops taking over. So, from the very practical (like a pair of bold-hued Nikes) to those who braved the shows (and the snow!) with open-toes, get all the shoe-stalking highlights right here.
Most of the shoes on New York's runways sped by so fast that there was barely a chance to observe them in all their heart-pounding, foot-stomping glory. But never fear: we've gathered up the best of them (and trust us, there are plenty!) right here. From Alexander Wang's mohair-covered pumps to Nanette Lepore's iridescent booties, these are all the Fashion Week goodies.

Isabel Marant may have launched a sneaker-wedge revolution, but Nike is taking the pumped-up look to new heights with its limited release of the Dunk Sky Hi City Pack, priced at $225 each. Inspired by five stylish metropolises from around the world — including New York, Milan, and Tokyo — you get the classic old-school streetwear silhouette of a Dunk high-top with all the luxe details of each city's iconic "personality" attached.
The New York style, at far left, features a metallic reptilian-print upper with black pony-hair panels and a patent leather Swoosh logo — a tribute to the New Yorker's signature all-black getup. Meanwhile, the London style boasts vibrant red plaid and green patent leather; the Milan iteration pays homage to its leather-crafting and luggage-making heritage with a crocodile-embossed upper; the Paris style looks to its romantic urban roots with a pale tweed-and-leather combo; and the Tokyo reveals itself as a city (or in this case, a shoe) driven by high shine and an insatiable desire for high tech via gorgeous iridescent accents.
Jenni Kayne never fails to supply us with gorgeous footwear, and for Fall 2013, expect to fall even harder for the designer's latest offerings. In addition to her iconic d'orsay flats — this time dipped in rich jewel tones and including a new kitten-heel silhouette — Kayne also showed us sleek high-heel mules and some irresistible prints. See them all now.
