Nothing is hotter than studs for fall. From stilettos to sneakers, you’ll find a studded shoe option in every price point and in every style imaginable.
Much as I like the concept of studded shoes, however, I’m actually quite clumsy and some of those spikes look wicked! So, I went in search of some less painful alternatives (we all have our limitations – apparently mine includes walking without injuring myself!).
The selection of studded shoes and boots I found is truly huge! Most of which, unfortunately, are so “runway” as to be totally unwearable in real life. After much searching, I did find the selections above, right, which embrace the studded concept in a much more elegant, minimalist way. In addition, I’ve chosen only rounded, “safety studs” and not spikes.
Likely, I will only purchase one pair of studded shoes for fall, because I feel that this is a trend that will die out before you can say “Lady Gaga takes on Madonna!” In fact, I may even have to simply dust off the old Bedazzler…
