Types of women's shoes - names with pictures


The recently published article about men's shoes aroused your interest. Many people found it unfair that men's shoes are considered in terms of style much more often than women's. We agree that this is unfair, so we have put together a guide to the types of women's shoes for you. Some of them (for example, loafers and brogues) come from the men's classification, but photos of these models will let you know how good they are for women's wardrobe.

Mary Jane

Mary Jane - heeled shoes with a rounded closed toe and a strap at the instep. Initially, the shoes had a low school heel and a childish look. The history of the model goes back to the late Middle Ages and Tudor England, you can read more about it in our historical investigation . Today, shoes can be not only low, but also high heels, up to the stilettos. The defining element is the strap on the instep - one or more, which can be supplemented with buckles, or can be just a decorative element. A model with a very low heel of 0.5-2 centimeters visually turns the shoes into ballet flats, but leaves the name Mary Jane behind them. Would you like a model for your collection? Use our guide to match your shoes to your everyday wardrobe .

Tango shoes

If you move the Mary Jane strap from the instep to the ankle and add a vertical one, you get a model of tango shoes (tango shoes). The shoes have a closed high heel, a heel and are complemented by a T-strap or criss-cross straps at the instep. The history of the model began in the 1910s, when tango was actively conquering Europe and the USA. Passionate movements and forbidden public frankness attracted everyone's attention to the dance. There were tango evenings, dance schools and professional pairs of dancers. The shoe industry began producing special shoes that were comfortable, soft, stable, and at the same time kept their feet perfectly even during passionate steps.

Today, these shoes are still used for dancing tango, but they are also worn in everyday life. The meaning of the straps has long been forgotten, they have become a decoration of the model, emphasizing the instep, ankle and beautifully shaping the foot.


Glove shoes, comparable in softness to Czechs, are the heroes of the spring-summer season 2017. Glove shoes got their name for the softness of the material from which they are sewn. Thin elastic leather, comparable in softness to glove, makes shoes unprecedentedly comfortable. In terms of fit on the leg, glove shoes can only be compared with Czechs - shoes in which gymnasts and dancers train. In addition to the softest material, glove shoes are distinguished by the absence of a rigid form: a toe cap, heels and other “frame” details. Read more about these shoes as a trend of the season read in our material.


Oxfords (oxford shoes) - shoes with closed lacing, in which the side parts of the boot (boots) are sewn to the main part (toe) with a single seam. Even with the laces untied, the oxfords keep their shape, expanding in the tongue area by just a couple of centimeters.
Oxfords came to the women's wardrobe from the men's, sometimes appearing in the original masculine form, and sometimes in a feminine, sophisticated format.

There are several subspecies of oxfords that differ in construction and design: adelaide, balmoral, spectator, saddle and holkat. In the women's guide, we will not go into details, since the subtypes of oxford shoes are unchanged in men's and women's wardrobes. You can learn more about each in our male dictionary .


Derby (derby shoes) - shoes with open lacing, in which the side parts (breasts) are sewn to the main (sock) with a short side seam. The model is easy to put on: when the laces are untied, the side parts diverge freely to the sides. According to our subjective observations, derby low shoes are more common in women's wardrobe than Oxford low shoes.

Women's and men's derbies are divided into bluechers, moktoe, tank, longwing, splittoe, saddle, V-front. We will not repeat ourselves, so you can learn more about each of them from men's dictionary about derby .


Brogues - shoes with decorative perforations in the form of small holes, the Irish legend about the origin of which you can learn from our historical investigation . In the women's wardrobe, brogues have settled as firmly as oxfords and derbies. You can oppose brogues to plain toe (plain toe), that is, shoes on which there is no brogue. Depending on the number of perforations and their location, brogues are divided into quarter brogues, half brogues and full brogues. This division is suitable for low shoes, but broguing can decorate any women's shoes, from flip-flops and leather sneakers to high-heeled shoes. Read more about the classification in men's brogue dictionary .


Monks (monks, monkstraps) - low shoes without lacing, in which the side buckles play the role of a fastener. Literally translated from English, "monkstraps" means "buckles of monks." They owe their appearance to monks who wore comfortable shoes with buckles instead of laces.

There are versions with one buckle (monk strap) and two (double monk strap). Due to the rigid shape of the shoes, the buckles play a rather decorative role, since the shoes stay on the foot even when unbuttoned. Read more about each variety in male dictionary .


Loafers (loafers) - shoes that combine the upper without lacing with the sole of the shoe. Several varieties of loafers give room for imagination, so shoes are one of the most popular in both men's and women's wardrobes. Depending on the decorative elements and the shape of the top, they are divided into penny loafers, loafers with a buckle, tassels, fringe, Venetian, Belgian and slippers.

    Penny loafers
    Penny loafers (penny loafers) - a model, complemented by a leather strip with a slot. According to legend, students used this decor for their own purposes: they inserted a penny coin into the slot for good luck, from which the name “penny loafers” came from.

    Loafers with buckle
    Buckle loafers appeared in the 1930s, when the Italian designer Gucci added a snaffle-shaped buckle to the usual model - horse harness details. Loafers with a buckle buckle loafers (buckle - “buckle”) have the second name “Gucci loafers” after the name of their creator. Modern versions rethink the snaffle: instead, you can find decoration in the form of a bamboo stick, a spiral and just a chain.

      Tassel loafers
      Tassel loafers owe their appearance to the American actor Paul Lucas, who, on one of his trips abroad, was fascinated by the tassels on loafers. Tassel loafers were promoted worldwide by Ivy League students, for whom tassel loafers became an unspoken uniform, fitting perfectly into the school-student preppy style.

      Loafers with fringes
      Kilt loafers (kiltie loafers) - a model that is decorated with a wide leather fringe. Loafers are named kilts by analogy with the Scottish national skirt, which is vaguely reminiscent of leather stripes. The fringe of kilts can be complemented with a buckle, tassel or be an independent detail.

      Belgian loafers
      Belgian loafers - a model decorated with a small bow. This detail was added by designer Henry Bendel, and he borrowed the form from Belgian shoemakers, from whom he learned the craft.

      Venetian loafers
      Venetian loafers are a model that is distinguished by a complete lack of jewelry. They are called "Venetian" for their resemblance to the laconic form of the Venetian gondoliers. In appearance, they are similar to sleepers, but do not have a pronounced tongue shape.

      Slippers - shoes with a classic loafer sole and a soft top without decorations, often made of velvet or tweed. The protruding tongue with rounded edges can be decorated with embossed or embroidered monograms.


      Desert boots - ankle boots made of suede, nubuck or leather with rubber soles. The name is due to the British soldiers who fought in them in the sands of Egypt during World War II, as well as to Nathan Clark, who established their production in peaceful conditions under the Clarks brand, after which this species is often called simply clarks. A distinctive feature is two holes for lacing on each side. If there are more of them, then the boots from deserts turn into chakka.


      Chukka, chukka (chukka boots) - ankle-high boots made of suede, nubuck or leather. The name "chakka" comes from the term "chakker" - the period of the game of polo. Unlike deserts, chakkas can have any number of lacing holes. A characteristic difference between chukka boots is the leather sole.


      Chelsea boots - boots above the ankle with low heels with rubber inserts on the sides. Elastic inserts allow the boot to maintain a narrow ankle shape without the need for zippers and lacing. In a women's wardrobe, low-heeled chelsea boots often become a minimalist style element in combination with skinny jeans and a leather jacket. Ankle boots with heels can also be equipped with an elastic band, which gives us the right to call them Chelsea ankle boots.


      Moccasins - slip-on shoes with soft rubber soles (without heels) or leather with rubber studded inserts. A distinctive feature of moccasins is a protruding seam on the upper part of the shoe, often with an external overlay. The women's version of moccasins practically does not differ from the men's, so they can be called unisex shoes.


      Topsiders (topsiders, boat shoes) - yachtsmen's shoes with corrugated non-slip soles with a lace around the heel. The name comes from topside - upper deck. The lacing runs dotted along the edge of the upper to ensure a secure fit on the foot: the comfort and safety of the sailor on wet decks are the main requirements. Historically, the sole of topsiders was white, which did not leave marks on the snow-white deck of the yacht, but today you can find models of various colors, since white has lost its functional purpose. Like moccasins, boat shoes do not differ in their appearance in men's and women's versions, therefore they are also a unisex model.


      Not to be confused with sleepers! Slip-ons (slip-on) - a sports model with a smooth top without lacing and a flat rubber sole. The top can be made of textile or leather, on the side there are rubber inserts that provide convenience and speed of putting on. Shoes are universal in men's and women's versions, so neutral-colored models, if available, can be bought in any catalog.


      Espadrilles (espadrilles) - shoes with a fabric or leather upper on a woven jute sole. From Spain with love! Authentic combination of jute and canvas has migrated from cheap shoes for plantation workers to the wardrobes of movie stars. Espadrilles inspired creative and free-thinking people, including Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Manolo Blahnik. Yves Saint Laurent added a jute platform to the espadrilles, giving us one of our favorite summer pairs, wedges.


      Rubber boots without fasteners - wellington boots - owe their name to their creator, the British commander Arthur Wellesley Wellington. The first models were sewn from their soft leather, and they became rubber only after the invention of rubber and obtaining a patent for the production of shoes from it. After surviving two world wars, Wellingtons take on their immortal form, which is Green Hunter high green boots from Hunter Boot Ltd. Fascinating story of world conquest read in our material , and as inspiration for every day, use the images of Kate Moss in wellingtons from the Coachella festivals.


      Moon boots - boots and half boots, reminiscent of snowboard boots. The name came to mind of the creator, Italian Giancarlo Zanata, when he saw a poster of astronauts returning from the moon. The history of the creation of unusual shoes for terrestrial astronauts read in our dictionary for the letter M . Distinctive features of moonboots are a straight line of the heel, a thick sole and a super-volume nylon upper. The right and left shoes do not differ from each other, a fixing lace is threaded from above. The popularity of "moon boots" was so high that the brand name became a household name, giving a name to a whole type of footwear.


      Riding boots - riding boots - come from a time when riding was an indispensable skill. Riding boots were made of soft dense leather, which served for a long time and at the same time gave the rider the opportunity to control the horse by lightly squeezing its sides. The right to a women's pair of riding boots was earned by the first female travelers who abandoned the uncomfortable women's saddle in favor of a practical men's saddle. Modern women's readings can be with low heels or with stilettos, in the latter version, retaining only a distant resemblance to the original. In the wardrobe, readings are organic in combination with leggings and a voluminous top.


      The prototype of jackboots is army riding boots. Wartime made its own demands on shoes, therefore, unlike soft readings, jackboots were reinforced with a metal lining - chain mail sewn into the walls of the boot. The reinforced top was designed to protect against injuries and wounds in battle, and to control the horse, the boot was supplemented with a belt with a spur on the top. During the Second World War, jackboots became part of the uniform of the German troops, so they still evoke associations with aggression and military style. One of the more rough and aggressive forms of boots, which some designers, such as Rick Owens, play spectacularly on.


      Jodhpur boots - Ankle-length boots with round toes, low heels, fitted with straps at the tops. Designed for riding, boots were fastened to the feet with straps and buckles wrapped around the ankle. If you remove the straps, replacing them with an elastic insert, the boots will turn into a Chelsea. In its original form, the strap on jodhpurs wraps around the ankle and is fastened with a buckle to the outside of the boot.

      The boots are named after the city of Jaipur (India). In 1897, an Indian polo team led by the son of the Maharaja of Jaipur competed at the races in honor of Queen Victoria's jubilee. The players were dressed in national costumes, which included churidar trousers and short boots with straps. The English society appreciated the exotic shoe novelty and replaced their high boots with short jodhpurs, combining them with the usual English breeches. In addition to convenience, the new uniforms were much cheaper to manufacture, as they required less leather. Today, jodhpurs may have variations with one or more straps that play a decorative role.


      Winklepickers are pointy-toed shoes that were all the rage in the 90s and are making a comeback this season. The closest ancestors of the beloved pointed boats are pulins, funny shoes with long toes from engravings of the 15th century, the legend of which you can read in our historical review . Medieval shoes acquired their modern look in the middle of the 20th century on the wave of the teddy-boy style. At the same time, the pools get their new name - winklippers, by association with a long needle for taking snails out of shells (English winkle - snail).


      Sabo (sabo) - shoes with an open heel on a thick sole. The canonical clog models have a molded platform with a heel and resemble wooden blocks. The progenitors of clogs are Dutch and French wooden shoes. The high sole was supposed to protect the feet from water, manure and fish hooks. The first cheap clogs were carved from a single piece of wood, stuffed with straw for cushioning, and worn with thick socks. Today, any shoe with an open heel with a heel is referred to as a clog, but we still suggest limiting this type of shoe to a massive sole, one-piece or with a stable heel. The toe of the model can be both open and closed.


      The name "mules" (mules) did not appear yesterday, but we learned about it relatively recently . Mules entered the European fashion in 1694, when the Countess D'Olonne appeared at the church service in bright red brocade mules with a neat heel. A little later, both the famous Madame de Pompadour and Queen Marie Antoinette herself began to wear frivolous shoes in public. Centuries later, at the suggestion of Marilyn Monroe, mules became an integral part of pin-up looks, and today, laconic options with a wide leather top strip have entered the everyday wardrobe. More elegant than clogs, but just as comfortable, mules pair equally well with dresses, jeans and minimalist culottes.


      Babushes (babouches) - soft shoes without a heel and without a heel, a kind of leather house slippers. Homeland - the African continent, where slippers without a back were made of textiles. In the hippie era of the 60s, grandmothers came into the fashion wardrobe, fitting into the philosophy of freedom and closeness to nature. A distinctive feature of the species is the heel, which is not just absent in the design of the shoe, but, as if worn out, is laid inside. Grandmothers can be leather, textile, woven straw and combined.

      Roman sandals

      The oldest footwear for areas with a hot climate - Ancient Egypt and the Mediterranean. The flat sandals of the Roman Empire (roman sandals) were a versatile unisex shoe. The cork sole was attached to the feet with leather or woven straps that literally tied the sole to the feet. Today, sandals are open shoes with a flat sole or platform, which are kept on the feet with straps or laces.


      Flat sandals with straps at the ankle and around the calf, down to the knee. Gladiators (gladiator sandals, gladiators) were the shoes of Roman gladiators - arena fighters and warriors of the Roman Empire. Gladiators transformed the idea of ​​Roman sandals, reinforcing the latter with nails on the soles and longer straps that wrapped not only the foot, but also the shin up to the knee, keeping the shoes securely on the feet during fights and long-distance transitions. In the days of the hippies, gladiators came into fashion in an updated elegant format - with thin leather laces wrapped around the shins. Today, you can find variations on the theme of gladiators, such as high-heeled sandals that are held on to the feet with satin ribbons or leather laces.


      Birkenstock sandals are orthopedic sandals named after the German brand Birkenstock. Shoes appeared thanks to the German shoemaker Konrad Birkenstock, who in 1902 created a soft insole that repeats the shape of the foot to prevent flat feet. In 1964, Birkenstock introduced the first flexible arch support for mass production. The shape of the sandals is complemented by one or more wide straps. Later, the name of the manufacturer's brand became a household name, giving the name to a separate type of footwear.


      Slingbacks (slingbacks) - the name of sandals with a closed toe and an open heel with a jumper. The name comes from a combination of the English words sling (strap, strap) and back (back, back). In fact, slingbacks are a type of sandals, they can be high or low heels, with a pointed toe, rounded or square.

      One of the first slingback models was introduced by Christian Dior at 1947, they complemented the images of his famous collection, which gave rise to the New look style. Like Christian Dior dresses, slingbacks became a sleek alternative to closed shoes, something that was so lacking in post-war women.

      Ten years later, in 1957, beige slingback shoes with a black toe appeared. The author of the two-tone masterpiece was Gabrielle Chanel. Many style icons of the last century were in love with the elegant model, even Princess Diana could not resist. Chanel's black and beige mid-heeled, strappy heel is timeless, and we still wear versions of them today.


      Sliders - the name of flip-flops with a wide jumper (from the English slide - sliding). The shoes got their name from the movement we put on flip-flops: we “slip” our foot without any effort.

      Sliders were popular in the 90s as beach and pool shoes. With the return of the fashion of the nineties, slippers appeared in the collections of Puma, Rihanna, in the wardrobes of models and stars. Sliders of the new generation have already broken all the rules: they were made winter, supplemented with fur; turned into an evening model by adding rhinestones; began to be worn with sweatpants, socks and even silk dresses. Sliders made of transparent plastic are sometimes called "soap dishes" - another hello out of 90s, when shoes made of soft, jelly-like plastic were popular in pools and beaches.


      Slouch (from the English. slouch - hang down, fall) - boots with a bootleg, which is going to soft folds on the leg. The model was popular in the 1980s and returned to the catwalks in 2017-2018.

      According to the model, slouches can refer to different types of boots: with a wedge-shaped heel, with a stiletto heel, high pipes with a stable heel. All of them are united by a soft and fairly wide top, which forms folds of varying intensity. In the USSR, a model of boots with an assembled free top was called "boots with an accordion."

      The slouchy effect can complement not only high models, but also ankle boots and ankle boots: if the top is straight and high enough, it can already form folds.

      Pipe boots

      Boots got their name from the similarity of the shape with a pipe: the bootleg is straight from the base to the edge, in the reference models a straight line can be drawn from the heel to the top of the shoe.

      Straight wide boots do not fit to the calf and ankle, most often do not have zippers or laces. To keep the shape of the boot, it is sewn from thick leather. Soft thin leather and suede in such models will not be able to create the shape of "pipes" and will fold like an accordion, which will turn them into slouches.

      The straight shaft is typical for jockey boots, which have a low wide heel or an almost flat flat sole. Today, pipes are popular in the format of knee-high boots with high thick heels. You can wear the model with both mini and midi length, as well as skinny jeans.


      Hiker, hiking boots - shoes for mountaineering and mountain tourism. Shoes are defined by characteristic elements: non-slip corrugated soles, thick impregnated leather or water-repellent membrane fabric, metal eyelets, loops and staples for lacing, durable laces. Hikers entered the everyday wardrobe thanks to the fashion for tourist style and rough shoes.

      Metal eyelets increase the life of the shoe: durable laces will quickly rub leather holes. Loops allow the laces to move freely without pinching the leg during movement. The braces adjust the fit of the boot without lacing: just remove the laces from 1-2 loops at the top and distribute their length. Practical and comfortable in hiking conditions, these details have lost their meaning in everyday shoes, becoming style elements. Hikers can be boots, sneakers and even ankle boots with heels.

      The love for massive shoes with thick soles can be explained by the climate of our country: in snow, slush and ice, there is nothing better than non-slip, warm and reliable hikers.


      Avarcas (abarcas, avarcas, avarks) - a kind of sandals originally from the Balearic Islands (Spain). Sandal making has been a local craft on Menorca since the late 19th century. The idea of ​​the model, which later became famous, belongs to a peasant who once ordered the master to sew him a pair of durable, practical sandals for the hot local climate. He asked to make a sole from the rubber tread of a used tire. The idea turned out to be so successful that from 19In the 1960s, shoemakers on the island began to make these sandals to order.

      The shape of the avarka resembles ordinary sandals with flat soles, the top is in the form of a single piece of leather or textile that covers the top of the foot, but with a small open hole in the toes. On the foot of the sandal is held by a strap on the heel.

      In the 1970s, the first specialized workshops for the production of avarcas appeared. The model was popular with locals and tourists who wore it on the islands and took it with them to the continent. One of the brands that popularized shoes in Europe was Minorquines. The name of the brand was in consonance with the name of the island of Menorca, the birthplace of the abarcas.


      The name of this shoe speaks for itself: a sock-like textile upper is complemented by a sneaker sole. Textiles are tight knitwear or knitted mesh to make the shoes comfortable to put on and wear. The resemblance to socks emphasizes the integrity of the top: without zippers, straps and lacing.

      The model became popular with the advent of the ugly shoe trend - massive, unusual-shaped sneakers, which were called "ugly". One of the first Speed ​​Trainer sock shoes was released by Balenciaga, today many shoe and sports brands, both luxury and mass market, have them.

      “Socks” can be not only sneakers, but also sneakers and ankle boots, it all depends on what type of shoe sole is complemented by a knitted top.

      Grinders and martens

      The general name for lace-up rough boots, sometimes with a platform or massive tread sole. The names came from two brands - Grinders and Dr. Martens, which produce recognizable brutal shoes. The shoes of these brands can be called grinders and martens, but thanks to the popularity of the rock style, many others have similar models, and their names have become household names. This has already happened with Birkenstocks (Birkenstock brand) and UGG boots (UGG brand).

      Grinders and Martens style boots can have a hard metal toe box, contrast stitching, logos and tags. More often, models are sewn from dense, shape-holding leather. The color can be anything: the most popular is black, there are also white, burgundy, dark green, blue and options with partial dyeing that imitates scuffs.
