2016 Best Women's Shoes

Saks Fifth Avenue

We wanted to give another store this award for 2016. We really did. But then we got lost in Saks’s sea of fetish-worthy footwear—sparkly Louboutin high-top sneakers, Ferragamo fur-trimmed booties, chunky color-blocked Fendi heels—and realized, yet again, that no place else can match the mind-blowing selection and impeccable service of this department-store shoe mecca.
