Halloween is just around the corner and, let’s face it, it’s still way fun to dress-up on the big day, even as adults. If you plan on going all-out this Halloween by donning a costume, the shoes you wear can certainly make or break your look. You may have the perfect costume, but you’ll also need the perfect Halloween shoes to really set it off. Some closet staples, like tall black boots or black mary jane heels usually work well, but you might want to take it up a notch and wear a costume shoe you wouldn’t normally wear in everyday life. Even if you don’t plan to dress in costume, you can always wear shoes that channel your inner Halloween spirit. So, let’s get in character and take a look at the shoes:
