TO LAUNCH the holiday season, we’re focused on how to light up our wardrobe. Beginning at the bottom, here are 11 shiny pairs of shoes on our radar fit for upcoming festivities.


While I’m a sucker for the look of traditional loafers, I see this pair of gold metallic penny loafers stepping up my style. They sell for $105 at Boden.


Shiny silver patent leather, combined with bejeweled buckles on three adjustable straps and a manageable 1.4-inch block heel, make Le Monde Béryl’s Alexia Mary Jane an elegant, foot-slimming, party-ready pick. They’re $698.



Kate Spade’s taxi flats in yellow and black are nothing short of adorable. For the holidays, the Gogo Taxi Flats ($174) gets a festive update—with glitter.


To prove that sensible party shoes are not an oxymoron, J. Crew’s Millie ankle-strap heels, crafted in luxe Italian metallic leather with moiré accents on the captoe and heel, come with an almost 2-inch (aka very danceable) block heel. They sell for $248.


What would Kate Spade have done? She’d have worn these these square-toe block heels on their own with casual pants and perhaps a fairisle sweater or as the finishing touch to a full-skirted cocktail dress. They sell for $348 at Frances Valentine.


Rothys’ sleek, pointed toe shoes in platinum shimmer with a darker silver toe are flats, but they’ll give a lift to any outfit during the holidays or just about any other time. Plus, they’re comfortable, washable and knit from plastic bottles. They’re $149.


For holiday doings, Larroudé refreshed its Blair ballet flat with high-quality, silver-mirror patent leather, a sleek silhouette and an adjustable ankle strap. They sell for $315.


Inspired by a racing shoe, Onitsuka’s Serrano style in midnight blue with gold suede accents is constructed with a lightweight nylon upper and a textured rubber outsole that looks like the spikes of a track shoe. Energize your sneaker collection for $80 from Amazon.

Tory Burch tweaks the classic  Mary Jane  with sporty, puffy padding and luxe metallic leather. A tubular Velcro strap and cushioned sole ensure this flat is comfortable all day long. It’s currently reduced from $328 to $199.


You don’t have to be a skier to wear Moon Boots. Initially, beloved by skiers as the comfiest, warmest shoe for après ski in the early ’70s and the early 2000s, it later morphed into footwear for snowy, city streets. This metallic Moon Boot, waterproof and rubbed soled, sells for $175 at Farfetch.


Ugg updates its signature silhouette in a Classic Maxi Short Boot that looks like a puffer jacket for the feet. Lined in a wool blend for softness and warmth, it’s treated to repel light amounts of water. For a head-to-toe look, pair with an actual puffy down parka.

    All so cute. I’m particularly drawn to the gold loafers and Tory Burch Mary Janes.
