11 of the best pairs of party shoes the high street has to offer

We need to talk about party shoes. 'Tis almost the season and we're sure you'll have some occasions to wear them in between.

Oh, come on, you know you want to p..p..p..pick up a pair of party shoes. Listen, now is the time to get your partywear anyway - sure your first party is next week! (Possibly).

When I think of party shoes, I think of Carrie Bradshaw. For me, they have to be high and they have to be unique. (Although, you can't beat a good black pumps, but I'll get to that another time.) I'm quite aware that another person's version of a party shoe is a boot. though. Or even a flat. But then again you might like a heel, but you don't like it to be too high. So, I've selected a good number of choices that will hopefully cover all bases.


The definitive party shoe has to be the heel. You may have to get lifts everywhere and spend the night sitting, but think about the compliments. And that Insta OOTD will be #fire.
