Paris Shoe of the Day: Miu Miu

This bootie with decorative buttons looked part Victorian and part sporty.

Miuccia Prada is the queen of reinvention. For fall at Miu Miu, the designer opted for longer lengths on flowing skirts, zip-up sweaters and nipped-in jackets, which consequently served to spotlight the footwear. Lug-sole Mary Janes and ankle boots with a Victorian bent grounded most looks on the runway and often were paired with striped tights, slightly evoking Mary Poppins. But the standout shoe emerged in a belle-époque bootie with decorative buttons, worn with pleated skirts and belted outerwear for a look that was part Victorian and part sporty. The look was modern and wearable to boot.
