It can be easy to slide into a late-fall shoe rut, but not to worry: Wal & Pai is giving this season's footwear a major step up. Since 2014, the Los Angeles-based brand—founded by Hsuan Pai and Harel Waldman—has crafted minimalist shoes for women that go beyond cool-weather footwear norms (basic black booties these are not). The brand's fall/winter 2015 collection riffs on classic styles like the leather slip-on mule and pointy-toe flat and have details like painted edges and elfin touches. Proof that even the most subtly designed shoes can still make a bold statement.
