ESC: Celeb-Loved Shoe Designers to Watch



If you had an unlimited budget for shoes, what would you buy?

For celebrities-turned-CEOs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez money isn't a issue. Shoe shopping is all about finding a pair of shoes that spark conversation, pair well with their equally impactful wardrobes and, of course, make them feel amazing. 

While most people know celeb-loved shoes like Christian Louboutin shoes (a.k.a. "red bottoms") and Tamara Mellon heels, there are plenty of brands and shoe designers that celebs love that you probably haven't heard of. Their shoes are sold in select boutiques and reserved for shoppers with a Carrie Bradshaw obsession for foot fashion.

Case in point: the TV personality responsible for Kim's glass slippers (which surprisingly aren't Yeezy heels) that she wore on New Year's Eve, Jessica Rich.

"I'm on my ninth shoe—it's crazy," VH1's Real Chance of Love alum told E! News.

Jessica, the owner of her namesake brand, is well aware that her designs are standout in their own right, yet having a fashion lover like Kim chose them over well-known designers supports her ambitions to enter the mass market. The designers call the moment that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and Yeezy designer wore her shoes "fate" and "too perfect." Now, her shoes are carried alongside red bottoms in NYC boutiques and she's in talks with Nordstrom. 

If you have cash to burn or you want to treat yourself, opt for a pair of heels, flats or boots that will make a statement about your style and garner questions like "Where did you get your shoes?" With attention-grabbing heels, you can be the first to rock the next big thing. 

Kim Kardashian's glass slippers comes courtesy of fellow reality TV star, Jessica Rich, who fulfilled her dreams of being a designer after leaving VH1's Real Chance of Love.
