Statement shoes are an easy way to take a basic outfit from zero to hero. It could be a bright colour, bold print or interesting embellishment – just make sure your shoes make a statement this season! Designers love a good statement shoe but they can be way out of the budgets of us ordinary folk. Luckily though, there are also plenty of more affordable statement shoes on the market. Take a look at the following statement shoes that won’t break the bank.
1 Two-Tone Studded Sandals
Embellished statement shoes are a great way to jazz up an outfit. These studded sandals feature gold studs and cut out patterns. They’re a smart shoe that can be worn during the day or night. Team them with cuffed jeans and a t-shirt for a casual look or with a full-skirted dress for something more formal. You can find these particular shoes at Modcloth for around $35.
2 Bright Wedge Shoes
Make a statement in a brightly coloured shoe this season. These ASOS platform wedges come in a burnt orange colour and would look great teamed with a flirty printed dress. You could also check out Forever 21 and Modcloth for similarly stylish statement shoes.
3 Printed Flat Shoes
Statement prints are all the rage these days and not even shoes are immune to this trend. Colourful printed shoes are perfect for livening up a summery outfit. Wear your printed shoes with denim shorts or simple white dresses. These flat shoes from Modcloth will set you back around $45 and come in an eye-catching neon print. Stores like Nasty Gal and Forever 21 are also great places to look for printed shoes this season.
4 Glitter Heels
Add a bit of sparkle to your outfit with some glitter heels. A pair of glittery heels can look like magic when teamed with a pretty party dress or even sleek cigarette pants. These gold glittery heels will cost you around $40 from Modcloth and are a fraction of the cost of designer versions by Miu Miu and Kate Spade.

6 Mirrored Heel Sandals
A big trend right now is for mirrored heels. With these kinds of shoes it’s business at the front and party at the back!

Also check out Modcloth for similar styles of shoes on a budget.
7 Metallic Flat Sandals
Metallic shoes are all the rage right now. A pair of metallic sandals is a great way to make a statement this spring and summer. Choose one with a casual, contemporary design to wear during the day. These sandals will set you back just under $30 from ASOS and come in a cool mint metallic finish. Wear them with anything from denim shorts to chic shift dresses.
8 Bright Laser Cut Ballet Shoes
Take a classic style of shoe and turn it on its head. These ballet shoes come in a shocking pink colour and feature cool laser cut details. They’d be a great way to add a pop of colour to a plain old outfit. These shoes cost $48 from Topshop but you can find similar styles for less at Charlotte Russe and ASOS.
