Glitter boots don’t seem to be going anywhere, and we’re not sad about it.

If we’re being honest, it’s hard to find someone that doesn’t have a fascination with glitter. Even as kids in preschool and kindergarten, the glitter pens were always the ones to go first—and the ones you would hoard for yourself.
The gag is, when you grow up, that doesn’t really go away. Actually, it might intensify with age. The interests just evolve (and get more expensive), going from glitter pens and paint to beauty, jewelry, and accessories. The popularity of Kirakira+ proves our obsession and desire to make literally everything that we see sparkle. And if we’re using an app to make things shiny, we clearly want to have things that actually glitter IRL. This season, one of the biggest fashion trends made our Kirakiras explode: Glitter was everywhere and seen most prominently in shoes.
While shoes are obviously meant to be worn, some of the best sparkle shoes from the runway seem to be almost too good to wear—kinda like how the Crown Jewels are put on display for people to see because they’re too precious to be worn. Or perhaps in a more relatable example, how when you found a really rare and precious Beanie Baby, you wouldn’t play with it. You put a tag protector on and put it in a box to display it (because they’re gonna be worth a lot of money someday, right?). So feast your eyes on some of the most sparkly, entrancing, glamorous shoes from the fall 2017 runways. In our case, these aren’t made for walking, but they sure make for a pretty picture.
These Dolce & Gabbana beauties are giving off the best type of classic Disney Princess vibes. From Cinderella to Aurora, these strappy numbers evoke royalty.
