Nothing like a new pair of shoes to lift your spirits. New shoes can make your fashion basics come alive. New shoes are an easy way to experiment with a trend.

We thought these rationales might be helpful, so that you can feel super justified in visiting these five new shoe-shopping spots. To make updating your fall footwear wardrobe a cinch, we've recommended the pairs that we're most in love with at each store, too.

And you're welcome.

Rebecca Minkoff

What you need is a pair of buttery suede peep-toe knee-high boots ($495). But just try to make it out of this brand's lofty new shop without picking up one of the cute handbags, too.

8335 Melrose Ave.; 323-451-7414 or

Mona Moore

At Mona Moore in Venice, leather slippers (from $225) are flying out the door. Made in Limoges, France, they're based on ballet shoes and come in multiple colors; we're seeing them with cuffed boyfriend jeans and a sparkly tank.

222 Main St., Venice Beach; 310-452-4070 or


Ease back into the 1930s glamour of the newly renovated Beverly Hills boutique for sculptural heels that are as hip as this brand is famous. The platform wedge ($1,190) adds funk to fall's flowing layers.

357 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills; 310-273-9990 or



Barneys New York

The shoe department got a glossy brass makeover, and we're headed there to nab a pair of short motorcycle boots by Saint Laurent ($1,395). Studded ankle straps make them pretty as well as cozy, so we'll be pairing them with everything from ladylike dresses to distressed denim.

9570 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills; 310-276-4400 or

Sole Society

This Culver City-based online shop has opened its first brick-and-mortar store, and it's chockablock with well-priced fall gear, from stacked boots to a glam glitter loafer ($65) that's perfect to wear with a miniskirt and stockings for cool evenings.

Santa Monica Place, 315 Colorado Ave., Santa Monica; 877-765-3009 or
