Ever since she launched her eponymous label, I’ve been obsessed with Amina Muaddi, a Jordanian/Romanian shoe designer. I kept seeing the same silhouette all over my feed and fell in love: a mid-high heel with a pyramid-shaped detail on the end of the heel. Her trademark shape isn’t the only thing that sets her apart from the ever-growing footwear industry, though. The mix of brights and neutrals, glitter and satin, snakeskin and rhinestones – it all just pretty much makes you want to party.
As you noticed in my love letter-esque introduction of her, I’m super fascinated by the works of this badass woman. In a time where influencers and/or anyone with capital are simply slapping their names on clothing items without the knowledge of it’s path to existence, I was refreshed to read in Into The Gloss’ interview with Muaddi that she is very involved in the shoemaking process, even building some of the shoe parts from scratch herself.
Although the shoes are considerably loud for everyday wear, Amina understands that some women may want to wear them all day, and therefore tweaked her heel to cater to everyone: “I used to do higher heels, but this time I wanted women to have a heel they could wear throughout the day and then go to cocktails—a 9AM to midnight type of shoe.”, she tells ITG. Honestly, if I could afford to get my hands on a pair, I would wear AM heels all day, every day. Since the snow’s melting, I figured it’s time to show you my favorite heels for the upcoming wedding/party season. Shop our favorite Amina Muaddi picks below, and check out Net-a-Porter, Browns, or FWRD for the full line.

Yep, that’s the shoe. My absolute dream shoe. If I had to choose, here’s my top pick from her SS19 collection.

A more *casual* version of the beloved Gilda heel, but still appropriate for any party.
HOLLI IRIDESCENT SLINGBACK PUMPS, $645
This textured leather, though…
GILDA CRYSTAL-EMBELLISHED GLITTER LEATHER HEELS, $885
These are literally fit for a princess.
MULTICOLORED BIANCA 140 LEATHER SANDALS, $745
If I wasn’t such a wus, I would totally wear these every day.
If you felt concerned throughout that this amazing shoe label doesn’t have anything ~wearable~, well, now you don’t have to. Your new everyday shoe. You are welcome. Goodbye.
