Best Bet: Stiletto Reprieve


Italian footwear brand PéPé is known for its chic kids' shoes — miniature ballet flats, booties, moccasins, and lace-ups. But Soho tot outfitter Makié is one of the few New York retailers to carry the brand in adult sizes, stocking small batches of the luxuriously furry hand-stitched mocs. These super-soft leather and faux-fur slippers will keep your feet warm all winter, offering a cozy respite after a day in punishing heels.

PéPé Pony Slippers, $135 at Makié or online.
