Cinderella may have had a fairy godmother who gave her life-changing glass slippers, but we mere mortals aren't as fortunate. We do, however, have modern shoe makers and brands—and while they may not be as enchanting as a wand-wielding stylist, slipping in to their beautifully-crafted shoes can still make us believe in pure magic.
Furthermore, allow us to emphasize the impracticality of glass slippers. Cinderella may have been the belle of the ball, but we can imagine her hobbling back to her carriage in those painful shoes. No wonder she lost one! The shoes we've included in the gallery below, on the other hand, offer both fashion and functionality—they reflect the trends and are versatile enough for different occasions. And isn't that, really, what any smart, stylish woman would want?
Browse through our gallery for over 50 high-end pairs for the workplace, the mall, the dance floor, and everything in between.
