1. Yves Saint Laurent
Its accessories collections always excite fashion insiders, but this season's statement courts with a goat-hair mohawk are selling out as soon as they become available. Form an orderly queue.
From the front these shoes look like average round-toed courts, but from the side a beautiful heel is revealed. Gold and silver chain and black gem stones subtly, yet magnificently, embellish.
3. Christian Louboutin
Like dressing up? You'll love these silk shoes from cult footwear designer Christian Louboutin. Silk is folded and pleated around the toe and heel with dramatic results.
4. Manolo Blahnik
Pointy is back! There are lots of ladylike versions around, but the best are sleek, minimal and black. These are still sexy, but hard enough to show that you mean business.
5. Rupert Sanderson
Classy court shoes are delivered in luxurious velvet at Rupert Sanderson. Follow the trend for mixing textures and team them with a silky dress and faux-fur jacket.
6. Dries van Noten
Floral print can look a bit garden party, but not when it's delivered in a beautiful watery effect as it is on these Dries Van Noten shoes. The comfortable platform and stacked heel will ensure hours of fun on the dance floor, too.
Don't be put off by any Wizard of Oz remarks, ruby slippers can finish off an outfit with chic, not kitsch, results. Try these soft suede shoes with a double frill that covers the toes if you're looking for sophistication. Also in play-safe black.
8. Miu Miu
Leopard print is the trend that keeps on giving, and looks set to carry on into next season too. These chunky printed sandals are therefore worth investing in. Wear them with sexy 10-denier hosiery in winter and with legs bared come spring.
This season, designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane have been infatuated with lace. So for your own take on the La Dolce Vita look, try these black lace courts from Zara. And be sure to add red lipstick.
