Nothing against the mighty stiletto, but since our holiday parties typically involve both cocktails and inclement weather, we think a more sensible party shoe is in order. Which is why we're really, really into these brand-new G.H. Bass & Co. kicks. Imagine the classic Weejun, all dolled up for the holidays, and you're on the right track. The penny loafer now comes in gold-foil glitter, oxblood snakeskin, gleaming (and so holiday-appropriate) silver and gold, decked out with nail-head studs, and — our personal favorite — in a black-patent creeper version that we can't wait to style like so.
Click on for six styles that'll redefine party shoes (and most of 'em are 30% off now). And, if sparing your soles weren't enough reason to shop, G.H. Bass & Co. is having a site-wide, 50% off sale, starting Sunday, December 22. It's almost enough to make us leave the stilettos to the Kardashians forever.
