Take Flight

Let’s all pause for a moment to admire the amazing craftsmanship in Sophia Webster’s signature Chiara butterfly heels: They deserve the red-carpet treatment. A classic leather single-strap open-toe gives way to an amazing winged, D’orsay-style, four-inch heel that will turn any outfit into a fashion statement. $795,

Walk on the Wild Side

Animal print is all the rage this season, and Gianni Bini’s Abrianna lace-up stilettos are a leopard lover’s dream. Wear them with your favorite little black dress or dress up a pair of slim jeans; either way, they’ll be the star of your ensemble. $98 at Dillards, 200 University Town Center, Sarasota, (941) 527-4878,



Black and White and Chic All Over

Designer Ulla Johnson is known for her Boho-luxe style—think flowy floral dresses, batik prints and quirky details. Her range of shoes follows the same formula, as you can see with her Clara heel—a classic shape given Johnson’s signature bohemian touch thanks to textural black-and-white woven leather goatskin, an ankle tie and pretty tassels. $450 at The Shoe Edit by Lotus, 1462 Main St., Sarasota, (941) 906-7080 

Such Great Heights

There’s a reason Carrie Bradshaw loved her Manolos so much—they’re beautifully made and stylish without being overly trendy, which means you’ll have them for years. Take this sky-high pair in a gorgeous dusty pink satin—the classic shape means they’ll never go out of style, and the embellished buckle adds just the right amount of sparkle. $985 at Saks Fifth Avenue, 120 University Town Center Drive, Sarasota, (941) 364-5300,
