Lately, we’ve had a lot of throwbacks thrown at us. From anklets to frame bags, everything’s coming up retro. But there’s one classic silhouette that managed to stay current throughout the years: Mary Janes. The single-strap shoe is one of the most versatile ever invented, which is why it never really goes out of style.
But leave it to designers to add their own spin on the Fall 2019 runways. You can now indulge your footwear fetish with additional straps, pointy toes and sky-high heels thanks to innovators like Anna Sui, Miu Miu and Area. Even with these alterations, the same style rules apply. Wear your new Mary Janes with everything from straight-leg jeans paired with a puff-sleeve blouse to a sophisticated suit.
In other words, Mary Janes are must-haves for fall. Here are the coolest iterations out there.
