15 Rad Velvet Shoes For The Winter Party Season

Can't figure out what to wear below the ankle during this party-hopping season? The fool-proof answer: velvet. Thanks to a host of designers and brands spinning the typically festive, retro fabric into sophisticated footwear styles, it's no longer just the stuff of Santa suits and cheesy ribbons. In fact, we've got 15 extra-rad options — from comfy slipper versions to sexy towering heels — that'll leave you lusting for the soft stuff well after the ball drops on NYE. Luckily, this cozy-chic winter trend isn't going anywhere until spring, so you can safely pick out your shade, invest in a style, and get ready for some heavy petting…of your shoes.
