Fashion week street style has become way more than a phenomenon: It's a lifestyle. All the details (from the outfit to the hairstyle to the accessories) are well planned out, leaving spectators (and photographers) in complete awe. Yes, it may seem like a bit of a sartorial circus, but we just can't help but fall for those off-camera moments: the times when someone isn't posing, but rather candidly strutting down the street, hailing a cab, or hopping on the nearest subway.

That's why, as much as we're enamored by some of the clothing we encounter at Fashion Week, nothing gets us going quite like a pair of shoes. Especially in a city like New York, where getting around can be nothing short of a nightmare, the right choice of footwear is key to style survival — we're seriously impressed when we spot someone who can trek around town while still rocking an awesome pair of kicks.

With New York Fashion Week well underway, we came across 30+ women who are nailing their shoe game. From killer heels to sky-high boots and the most comfortable of flats, there's a little bit of inspiration here for every woman on the go.
