2016 Best Designer, Shoes

Thom Solo

Thom Solo’s avant-garde footwear, donned by the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, is for women who appreciate “having a moment,” he says. His designs—like platform snakeskin booties with crystal-clad heels—might not be ideal for the morning commute, but they’re sure-fire scene-stealers when you need an extra dose of glam.
