Never underestimate a pair of heels at the races! Yes, they hinder your ability to run, walk after a few champers or even be comfortable – but they do make your legs look ridiculously good! And that, friends, is what we’re after. Right?

The days of high platforms and stick thin heels are behind us (well, everyone except Gina Liano) a killer set of block heels, chunky lucites or embroidered mid-heels will be right on trend this year at both Caulfield and Flemington. They’re the perfect addition to any outfit and you won’t sink into the grass! Win, win.

If you’re on the hunt for your perfect summer pair, Chapel Street should be at the top of the list! And to make sure you get the perfect pair in record time – here are our top 5 places for high heels to check out first!

Amo Store

A cool little retailer near Commercial Road, Amo Store’s brands include Jeffrey Campbell, The Dark Collection and The Little Establishment. To us, Amo Store’s unique collection of statement heels, eclectic boots and leather pieces make them stand out in the crowd. Right now, we’re drooling over the embroidered Jeffrey Campbell heels. They’ll be the perfect pair for Spring Racing fun!

Let’s be real – you can’t go wrong with Tony Bianco. Their collections are always on trend, their shoesies are great quality & their prices can justify the three pairs you just bought – after promising the BF that you were cutting back on shopping (soz, Tom). For this SS17 – we’re alllllll about their chunky heels and ankle wrap details. It’s #love.

A MIMCO clutch is an essential in any wardrobe, this much is true. But have you ever paid a little attention to the shoes?! Because if you haven’t, sweet baby you’re missing out! Like anything worthwhile, there aren’t many choices, but what options you do have are 10/10. Personally, we’re loving the mid-heel for super easy to wear sparkles that’ll go all day and into the night. So important for all horsey orientated events! (Hellloooo Polo)

567 Chapel St, South Yarra

Windsor Smith’s collections are slightly edgy, they go with everything & the prices don’t break the bank – which during this time of year, is exactly what we need, amirite?! When you’re after something to go with the cute little dress you just pay-waived, or a simple, black thick heeled leather something – Windsor Smith will have your back. And your perfect heels! We’re loving these strappy little numbers for summer.  They’ll add a touch of somethin’ somethin’ to a simple dress… or the dress you wore three years ago and hoping that no one notices.

Zomp is a girls dream. Rows and rows of shoes just waiting to be taken home! While at first, it’s a little overwhelming, after a couple of seconds of scanning, the exact pair you’ve been searching for will catch your eye. You’ll saunder over. Pick em up. Gently stroke the soft velvet. Then, before you know it, you’ve noticed another pair. And another pair. And with over 100 brands in store – ten more pairs will catch your eye before you realise that you’ve legitimately died and gone to shoe heaven. Just be careful who you fall in love with at Zomp – their collections are quality & the prices match. So it’s best to play hard to get and wait until you finally meet your true shoe love.
