New York Fashion Week is over but we keep fantasising about all the amazing accessories seen on the runways. We can’t wait another six months to get these, so we had to find the closest alternatives currently available in South African stores. Here are five pairs of shoes spotted on the latest runways, and where you can find something similar.

1. The slip on

Looking for a comfortable but work-appropriate slip on? Then we have got you covered because Country Road has a Prubung Gurung-inspired mule that can be easily worn with jeans, a crisp-white T-shirt and gold minimal accessories.

2. The edgy mules

A blast from the past, made relevant today. These ’90s-inspired heeled mules will add a retro element to any plain outfit. These runway-inspired beauties can be found at Mango.

3. The lace-up bootie

Calvin Klein created the bootie of the season on the AW18 runway. The Kardashian/Jenner clan and J-Lo often don similar pairs. The lace-up factor ables one to style these with joggers or even boyfriend jeans.

4. The luxe loafer

These shoes are perfect for when you have to quickly run out the house. Talk about adding some chicness to lazy shoes.

5. The sandals 

Ferragamo featured a textured and comfortable pair of sandals that could easily be turned into a work shoe, or something comfortable for a night out with the girls. These head-tuners are versatile in make and don’t need over thinking.
