While footwear fetishists find beauty in every curve and stitch of a well-made pair of shoes, this season, designers have added an extra dose of architectural whimsy with blingy metallic accents on the toe or at the heel. Labels like Salvatore Ferragamo and Louis Vuitton included this touch of luxe appeal to their stompers. If you’re going to wear steel-toe boots this season, make sure everyone can see ’em.
