This was a Reader Request, on the heels — no pun intended, but maybe it should have been! — of our post on Festive Plaid Shoes. (I’ve got a whole list of Reader Requests on the docket, but this seemed Time Sensitive because the time for Festive Shoes is fast approaching.) Personally, I love sparkly shoes EVEN MORE than plaid shoes and they are more subtle than you think they are, because they’re so far from your face. Seriously — think about it: If you’re wearing black trousers and a plain top but you’ve got a little glitter poking out from under your hem, it’s MUCH more low key than wearing, say, a giant sequined cape.

I have two pairs of sequined shoes that I wear often, and they’re both super old, and they are both Miu Miu, because apparently Miu Miu was deeply invested in glitter for your feet like ten years ago (FWIW, The RealReal actually has a few amazing glittery Miu Mius floating about at fairly good prices, considering the label. Like, these are kinda amazing if you’re a 9.5. And if you wear an 8, I have the super strappy version of this pump and it’s way more comfy than it looks. These are INSANE and I really want them but they are a 9 and won’t fit me so please one of you buy them for me. Here’s the nearly-flat heeled version of one of my pairs! You could walk in these without falling on your head, if you wear a size 10.)

Hello, I’ve just gone hugely off track. Or, rather, very SPECIFICALLY on track. Let’s look at some shoes:

As ever, if you don’t see the widget, just refresh your browser. Now, sparkle, Neely. SPARKLE.

As a general housekeeping note: This is not a sponsored post. Our glitter footwear allegiances are ours alone. Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you click through. I can assure you that all these shoes were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking expired wine in a box and watching Hot Bench.
