Luxe Looks for Less


Hi, I’m Danielle Kalish, LifeStride’s senior design director. As a shoe designer and a girl on a budget, I love a look for less. It’s all about the special touches like chic embellishments, on-trend silhouettes, and premium comfort that make a shoe look and feel expensive. And at LifeStride, we have tons of options that give you that elevated designer look and comfort you’ll love, without the designer price tag.


Here are a few of my favorite styles with that luxe designer look and feel, 𠊊nd they’re all under $100!


Last Dance Dress Sandal

“This shoe is the epitome of the modern feminine aesthetic. We’re seeing this tulle bow detail everywhere, and it makes the shoe feel so special.”

2. Belle Block Heel Dress Sandal

This shoe is so festive with the hints of bling and metallic details. I would dress it up with a pretty cocktail dress or down with denim and a cool blazer/t-shirt.

Sunset Pump

“This is my go-to heel. I love the envelope vamp detail and mixed materials, especially in the dover color. Plus, the comfort is really next-level.”

Gracie Tall Boot

“This tall boot really feels luxurious with a suede-look material at the front, clean lines, and then a stretch back panel that makes the fit feel so good. And it comes in wide calf, which we love.”

5. Sunset Pump

This elevated pump has great material-mixing and is perfect for a date night!

6. Last Dance Dress Sandal

Anyone having a fall/winter wedding? How cute would this be with a sparkling cocktail dress?!

7. Cameo Flat

Ballet flats are having a moment right now, and I love them with a chic ankle 
pant and blouse. So comfortable for the season!

8. Catalina Loafer

This comfortable little moc is on our most-loved Cameo ballet flat sole, and it is the perfect loafer for work or holiday travel.

9. Sienna Ankle Bootie

I adore a dress bootie and this is such a fashion statement with the pointy 
toe and Chelsea boot upper. The white is so chic for winter.

10. Gracie Tall Boot

This all-stretch tall boot would be so great for all the kids' classroom parties. You'll be able to wear it for hours with comfort!
