21 Pairs Of Killer Christmas Party Shoes You Can Actually Dance In
Party season is officially here but are you ready for it? More importantly, is your *wardrobe* ready?
Shoes can make or break an outfit. The right pair can take a boring LBD from blah to bangin’ in an instant but, thanks to sore feet, we have a love/hate relationship with most party shoes. Pick the right ones and you’ll win the Best Dressed Office award whilst smiling smugly in the face of blister plasters.
Avoid having to trudge through the street barefoot at the end of the night with achy-breaky soles by investing in a pair of party shoes that you can actually dance in.
1. ASOS, £40
The bondage-style buckles in metallic pink give these shoes a super sexy edge. The round toe will keep toes safe from other spiked heels while the block heel makes for a sturdy foundation.
2. Bershka, £25.99
If we had a dirty pint for every time we’ve yelled “block heels are best” then we’d be mortal. They’re your party BFFs. So, just believe us. Wear these with a pair of cropped trousers to show off the sultry lace-up detailing.
3. River Island, £50
Need inches to ramp up your height? Choose a pair of stacked platforms over spindly stilettos. The raised front sole balances out the heel height, lessening the steepness.
4. New Look, £24.99
Who doesn’t love a stompy wedge? It’s like walking around on chunky stilts, perfect for shorties who want to dance all night without sacrificing inches.
5. Topshop, £69
These heels are pure sass in a kind-to-the-foot shoe. Plus, they’re called Glenda. Amazing.
6. Mango, £49.99
It wouldn’t be party season without a pair of plush, lush velvet platforms! Wear these with tights for day and the richest pedicure at night.
7. M&S, £29.50
Ah, what did we do before mules made a very welcome return into our lives? The thick fabric band hugs the whole foot without a single pinch.
8. Topshop, £56
Court shoes can feel a bit secretary and therefore bor-ing. Throw on a sling back and flash your heels! Especially fierce in animal print.
9. New Look, £24.99
Nothing says you’re up for a sassy night than a pair of high Mary Janes! We’re crushing on these easy to wear ones.
10. Stradivarius, £25.99
When is a court shoe not bland? When it’s super shiny with a sexy pointed toe. Toe cleavage is a major thing. Just be sure to pick a pair with a mid-height heel to avoid aching balls, if you know what we mean…
11. New Look, £24.99
Yes, the heel is pretty high but when it’s this thick there’s zero chance of wobbling during your Rihanna impression #workworkworkworkwork.
12. Topshop, £52
Ready to party? Say it with sequins! This disco ready pair will look incredible with sheer tights.
13. River Island, £58
The mini front platform on this pair of molten silver heels helps lift the soles, reducing any chance of achy toes.
14. Office, £62
Secure but sassy straps, covered toes and a chunky heel to stabilise even the wildest dance moves. There’s little not to love about these animal heels.
15. Zara, £55.99
We never thought we’d say it but kitten heels are back and we’re feeling them. Difficult to wear if you’re anything over a size 4 but if you can, hit them up for party season.
16. Stradivarius, £29.99
Velvety black ‘forms with a girly ankle strap make any party outift hot. Add socks and watch your style rating soar.
17. ASOS, £55
The thick, chunky straps on these white beauts will keep tootsies secure without cutting or pinching. Winner.
18. Miss Selfridge, £39
For a failsafe comfortable party shoe, go low on the heel front. Pick a pair in festive metallic to avoid losing any party points.
19. Zara, £29.99
Boost a simple jeans and sparkly top look with this pair of Chanel-esque points.
20. New Look, £27.99
If in doubt, look for a pair with glittering heels to add disco ball fun to any look.
21. River Island, £48
For a more subtle vibe that will work all through the year opt for decadent satin with an opulent print.
