20 Shoes That Defined Fashion Month

It's official. We've been called out for all those blurry Instagrams, fuzzy details, and subpar shots that some of us — not pointing fingers — have taken of the Fashion Week runways. We've been found guilty of getting too excited and Insta-sharing our favorite looks from the fall '14 collections, but, really, can you blame us? That said, clothing is not the only major victim of this crime. It's the shoes, too. And, without a doubt, trying to capture a pair of glittery cap-toe booties while your cell phone is shaking in your hand isn't going to do these designer gems justice.
And, so, consider the slides ahead a final stop-and-smell-the-roses-feast-your-eyes moment at the pairs that really stole the spotlight this season. These are the soles from New York to Paris that kept our gaze fixed on the floor. They helped define the collections and inspired entire outfits we'll be wearing come fall. Ahead, see 20 flats, chunky heels, Mary Janes, and booties (so many good booties) that are pretty enough for a frame — but we'd prefer them on our feet, please.
