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.

Boot 479x629

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

Multi Ballets 597x343

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

Shoes Ferragamo 597x4301


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 597x430

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

Glitter Shoe 597x3431

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
