It’s natural to want to put your best fashion details forward, so they can be admired when facing a person, but there’s certainly something to be said for leaving a lasting impression while walking away. That’s why I tend to like shoes with eye-catching details placed on the back of the heel – the kind of styles that just might have you sauntering away from people way more often, but all in the name of a little harmless showing off. For instance, we have the Sam Edelman Evan, which is an unassuming closed-toe pump in the front:
But it goes all-out glam in the back with its metallic and studded corset detail.
In addition to the black and gold version, which is available at Revolve Clothing for $150 or at Bloomingdales for the same price, there is also this metallic gold and silver Zinc option (also pictured at very top):
Heels.com has this one for $169.99.
I’ve also been seriously admiring this boot lately, even though I’m so not in fall boot mode yet:
Sure, this one has standout detail in the front in the form of a dramatic spikey collar around the ankle, but it’s also got an interesting element in the back via extra-long fringe:
I’ve always admired the compelling swaying effect this type of fringe makes when the wearer is in motion and the Jeffrey Campbell Amanda Spk can be found at Lori’s Shoes in beige or black for $228.95.
Here’s another one that’s sleek and simple up front:
But there’s a glitter party going on around back (very Miu Miu like, btw).
You can find the Vince Camuto Hariza for $148.95 at Nordstrom.
Finally, we have the Report Signature Targee, which appears to be a tame little nude platform pump:
But it definitely shows its wild side with this fringy mane that runs along the back of the heel:
Oh yes, the element of surprise tends to leave a lasting impression.
These can be found at Lulus for $189.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
