Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world’ – Marilyn Monroe

Truer words have never been spoken – a girl can do unimaginable things if given the right pair of shoes. Right from leading a nation to dancing the night away to running a marathon to climbing Mount Everest, everything can be conquered if the shoes support you.

Over the years with so many international brands entering India and local brands keeping up with the trends, one can find some of the best shoes in Delhi. Take a popular hub Select Citywalk for instance, right from sports shoes at Nike and Adidas, trendy footwear at Aldo and Steve Madden and good quality shoes at Rosso Brunello and Dune, this mall has every type of shoe to offer.

Whenever you select a shoe, you should know what you are wearing. Don’t confuse pumps for wedges and stilettos for cone heels. Here are a few ultimate and popular styles that one should definitely own:

  1. Pumps

Pumps are the most versatile pair of shoes for women and can be worn at multiple occasions. These can be worn for parties, at formal events, to your first dates and are quite a flexible pair of shoes to own. Nude and black pumps are a good first option to buy but once you move beyond the basics you can choose some colourful ones as well. Steve Madden has some of the best shoes in Delhi and you are sure to get yourself a good pair of pumps there.

  1. Boots

Aldo and Dune have a great collection of boots amongst other shoes in Delhi. Be it thigh-high boots or ankle booties, boots are the perfect and stylish shoes to own for the winter months.  A staple for the winter wardrobes globally, ankle length boots can also be used as formal shoes. Thigh high boots extend over the knees to almost half way through the thigh. These pair very well with a short dress, a dress shirt or even leather jeggings and are the perfect oomph factor for your winter wear.

  1. Stilettos

Stilettos are shoes that are hated by some and loved by some. They have a thin and long heel and are perfect for both formal occasions as well as dressy scenes. Stilettos can come in a very wide variety colours, patterns, stones, textures and you will be spoilt for choice if you enter absolutely any shoe store in Select Citywalk or the rest of Delhi.

  1. Kitten Heels

Shoes with heels that range between 1.5 inches to 1.75 inches in height and are short and slender are called kitten heels. These heels have a minor curve setting at the backside. These are perfect for people who can’t wear stilettos and still need heels for a party or a formal occasion. These shoes are the favourite of powerful women like Michelle Obama and Audrey Hepburn and have secured their place in the best 5 formal shoes for women.

  1. Ballet Flats

Ballerina flats or ballet flats are like doll shoes and as the name suggests they get their inspiration from the traditional soft ballet shoes. These closed toe shoes, have a very flat heel that gives the appearance of not having one at all and are the ideal shoes for comfort. They can have different textures and materials and can be worn formally as well as for a day out in the city.

If you are looking for any shoes in Delhi, be it any of the above or runners, gladiators or mules, you can walk into any mall such as Select City walk or go to any market like Greater Kailash, South Extension or Janpath and the variety you will see will be unbelievable. The colours, styles, finish and textures go beyond one’s imagination – you may go looking for one pair and come back with five.
