This time of year, you may find yourself wanting to go all out with your ensembles, and that often includes starting the party south of your ankles. Yes, sparkly stiletto options abound, but what about incorporating some glitz into your everyday wardrobe? The glitter-sneaker trend is one way to do so for sure—yet, sometimes the statement you seek is more subtle in nature than a disco-ball-chic shoe allows.

Luckily, an increasing number of diverse designers—from high-end labels to athletic-only brands—are investing in elevated looks with respect to their sneaker offerings. The result: The options for embellished pieces fit for sophisticated adults have *seriously* expanded. Velvet, snakeskin, fur, lace, and other such luxe materials are being used to add flourish to familiar rubber soled silhouettes from Nike to Gucci this season. Generally speaking, these kicks are lifestyle only, so plan to pack a pair of performance kicks in your backpack before leaving the house.

Shop 10 pairs of embellished sneakers—satin, snakeskin, shearling, and more—below.
