Miu Miu Made Me Do it—27 Mary-Jane Shoes That You Need for Fall

Blame it on Miu Miu, but Mary Janes are basically the shoes of the season. The style is known for its simple closed-toe design and a strap (or more!) that runs across your foot’s instep. For some extra background, the name “Mary Jane” came from a character in a Buster Brown comic in the early 1900s. The Brown Shoe Company named a shoe after the ones she wore and, well, the rest is history. 

While the satin flats from Miu Miu come to mind first, there are so many other designers going all in on the trend. Sandy Liang launched Mary Janes in September as her first shoe design, and they quickly sold out. (Another drop is releasing in December, by the way.) More brands lending their distinct point of view to the classic include Mansur Gavriel, Ganni, Nodaleto, and Prada, just to name a couple. Here, I rounded up 27 of the best Mary Janes in all different silhouettes, from flats and loafers to lug-sole platforms and high heels, so you can find your dream shoe for fall 2022. Shop away!
