Women's Court Shoes
An easy way to finish any outfit in style, women's court shoes are a timeless classic that have been consistently fashionable throughout their history.
Traditionally, court shoes feature a low-cut front and a slip-on design with no fastenings. Nowadays, there is a wide range of styles available in a number of materials and heel types.
Practical and Stylish
The versatility of the court shoe is what makes them remain so popular. Although many people commonly think of high heels when thinking of court shoes, there is a wide choice of heel heights available.
For day-to-day wear, many women prefer a low heel that is comfy for walking around in. These are practical not only for office wear but any kind of work where the wearer will be on their feet all day.
Commonly designed in a plain leather, patent or satin, the simple appearance of women's court shoes makes them ideal for pairing with a wide range of outfits. The mid- to high-heels are perfect for wearing with dresses and skirts and will easily match any look and block heels can smarten up a classic jeans and top outfit.
For a night on the town, choose stilettos and high heels. Court shoes don't just come in the plain style that they are known for but can often be glittery, embellished or panelled, so it's easy to find a pair for a stand-out look as well as your everyday staples.
History of Court Shoes
The court shoe dates back to the fashion traditions of the Medieval times, where they were often worn by wealthier citizens in England, Italy and France. This version of the court shoe wasn't very practical and soon more comfortable court shoes came into fashion.
They were so popular that King Louis XIV of France refused entry into his court to anybody not wearing them, which is where the term court shoes came from.
