Go big or go home: statement shoes for any budget

Go big or go home – it’s time to let your feet to do the talking this season in statement shoes that will have heads turning. We’re talking statement footwear adorned in feathers, gems or studs, or maybe even distinctive textures and fabrics like satin or faux fur. You can go luxe or less, depending on what you’re looking for. There’s a Carrie Bradshaw-approved statement shoe to suit every budget.

Statement shoes are also easier to style than you think, adding the finishing touch to a monochrome outfit or going with a new more-is-more mantra. Ready to give it a try? Here are our statement shoe picks for luxe or less.


Time for a little splurge? We're head over heels for these lavish numbers. Go all out with bright green Gucci pumps adorned with stunning crystals, logo-detailed Jimmy Choos or subtle Salvatore Ferragamo shoes that you can wear from day to night.

Prefer to buy both a heel and a flat pair of statement shoes? We're loving the pops of bright colour and abundance of texture with feather, satin and fur details, not to mention all the glitz with crystal and gem accents.
