BIG STEPS

NEWSWORTHY SHOES TO ADD TO YOUR SHELF.

ELLE (Canada) - - Style -

Just in time for Valen­tine’s Day, Aldo has re­leased a cap­sule col­lec­tion that ticks all the boxes. (Hearts? Check. Cupid’s ar­rows? Check.) One stand­out is a pair of glossy pumps adorned with a big red heart at the base of the sky-high heel. But if flats are more your thing, white sneak­ers cov­ered in lovey-dovey doo­dles are equally ir­re­sistible. De­signer Re­jina Pyo, whose bal­loon-sleeved dresses have made her a street-style dar­ling, is grow­ing her brand. This sea­son, Lon­don-based Pyo has in­tro­duced a line of shoes with sculpted wooden heels. She main­tains that com­fort is just as im­por­tant as beauty: “If the func­tion doesn’t work with the form, the de­sign will be scratched and started again.” On­line shop­ping des­ti­na­tion Shop­bop is a trea­sure trove of buzzy in­die brands. New this sea­son is Reike Nen, a Ko­rean shoe brand known for chunky­heeled loafers and an­kle boots made from glossy patent or sump­tu­ous vel­vet and adorned with over­sized me­tal hard­ware. Con­sider th­ese quirky styles the per­fect com­pan­ions to a pair of cropped flares.
