In this era of attention-grabby stilettos and platforms meant to stand out from (or blend into?) the street style herd, there’s something striking about a quieter, well-made shoe.


This Chrissie Morris heel still comes with stand-out details to excite the eye (how sexy is that ankle strap?) but doesn’t go as far as becoming a circus act for the feet. That makes it an ideal candidate for your rotation of workhorse shoes for fall — you know, the heels that work in practically any setting, whether professional or social. Because you can only get so much mileage out of a shoe covered in three-dimensional thunder bolts.
