You probably already know the best places online to shop for clothes. For shoes? Likely not. So we are taking the liberty to introduce two fresh destinations dedicated to footwear, for your browsing pleasure or after-work shopping sprees. One’s for luxury footwear and cool indie brands you previously have no idea how to get your hands on, and the other’s for well-made, work-appropriate classics you’d want to wear over and over again.

P.S. Both stores offer 28-30 day return policies so shop with ease!

Three years after selling popular luxury e-commerce site MyTheresa.com to the Neiman Marcus Group, founders Susanne and Christoph Botschen have launched Marthalouisa.com, dedicated to designer footwear.

The site’s tightly curated edit includes Gucci, Prada and Saint Laurent alongside rising indie labels such as Ayede, Brother Vellies and Vibi Venezia. It’s the first time many of these are available on a multi-brand platform.

Each shoe style is handmade in small quantities, and some designs feature a velvet-like microfibre lining (for comfort and to prevent chafing) and a rubber anti-slip outsole for additional comfort and safety. All are from $49.90-$69.90.
