Jeanne Beker re­views three of the hottest shoe trends to hit the streets this sea­son

SIL­VER SEN­SA­TION Sport­ing Life, 2665 Yonge St., $820, “Fer­rag­amo just makes the best qual­ity, and I love the fact that the buckle can be re­versed for a gold ef­fect.” SIDE STRIPES Zvelle, zvelle.com, $505, “They’re sleek and time­less: a clas­sic dressy suede boot with this graphic de­tail­ing up the sides. ” STATE­MENT SHOE Spec­chio, 1240 Bay St., $795, “These Dries Van Noten shoes are to die for, from the beau­ti­ful fab­ric to the shape of the heel.” WILD WILD WEST Ron White, Bayview Vil­lage, $395, “It has beau­ti­ful em­broi­dery and in­ter­est­ing open­ings on the side and it will be fea­tured on TSC this month.” VEL­VET LUXE Spec­chio, 1240 Bay St., $695, “These are so cosy! This is shear­ling, I be­lieve, on top. It says re­lax­ation in a very posh, ul­tra luxe way.” SHOW­STOP­PER Stu­dio D, 2570 Yonge St., $995, “I’m in love with these. They’re vel­vet (so ve­gan-friendly) boots, and they’re art­ful and artis­tic.”

RETRO VIBES Aldo, Prom­e­nade mall, $140, “It re­minds me of a cross be­tween a go-go boot and a Bea­tle boot, so very ’60s.”

SPACE AGE Spec­chio, 1240 Bay St., $595, “You could dance your way through a David Bowie video in these. There’s some­thing fu­tur­is­tic about them.”

LEOP­ARD LOVE Grav­i­ty­pope, 1010 Queen St. W., $150, “This is al­most a cross be­tween a bal­let flat and a loafer. This is the real deal pony hair, and they’re lined with leather.”

NOTABLE NAVY Davids, 66 Bloor St. W., $1,000, “Nicholas Kirk­wood makes a beau­ti­ful shoe, from the pointy toe to the gor­geous heel with the black pearl de­tail­ing. Re­ally el­e­gant.”

PATENT PER­FEC­TION Davids, 66 Bloor St. W., $1,195, “Lucite, a great throw­back to the ’60s and ’70s, these are beau­ti­fully de­signed with both a retro and mod­ern feel­ing.”

MUS­TARD MUSE L’In­ter­valle, Ea­ton Cen­tre, $148, “I can’t imag­ine this not go­ing with any­thing. I love this colour. It has a nice square toe and a per­fect heel height.”
