Metallic Shoe Trend

Metallic shoes made their presence known last summer and were established as a fall fashion must-have. Prada, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and other luxury designers debuted shiny gold and silver shoes on their fall 2023 runways.

Prada’s take on the metallic trend includes pumps covered with gilded patent leather with a long, sharp pointed toe. The tall, skinny golden stiletto heels add four inches of height and maximum elegance. The gold patent leather Prada pumps are not available on their website, although they have a similar patent leather pump available in white, black and red.

Metallic stilettos were also trending at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, with Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Margot Robbie wearing dazzling jewel-toned ones that coordinated perfectly with the color of their dresses.
