2013 clearly saw some amazing footwear, and our favorites each had a special element. The flat was back this year in a major way—thank goodness—and was more stylish than ever! Brogues made their way onto our feet in escalated colors and designs. From companies like AGL and Cole Haan and designer Christian Louboutin, this menswear staple is one we hope sticks around. Another flat that was hot to trot this year? Gucci‘s iconic loafer, featuring a horse bit across the instep, celebrated its 60th anniversary by proving they are here for the long haul. If you’re more of a heels girl, we loved Manolo Blahnik’s made-to-order BB shoes (inspired by Brigitte Bardot) that are available online from Neiman Marcus for $595. Customize by heel height and color for your own perfect pair.
