Look Down: The Most Stylish Shoes Seen on the Streets of Paris

Street-style snaps during Paris Fashion Week
Photographer: Melodie Jeng/BloombergPursuits

A trip to Paris necessitates keeping eyes trained upward: For every Eiffel tower skyline showstopper, there's an ornate entablature on an hôtel particulier that demands attention. For Paris Fashion Week, however, we prompted photographer Melodie Jeng (@melodiejeng) to do exactly the opposite—after all, it's the footwear that often steals the show along the boulevards during this hypertrafficked 5-day period. Scroll through her snapshots below for a cross-section of the classically stylish, eyebrow-raising, and all-together talk-worthy shoes that caught our attention.
