You’ve got the dress. You’ve got the date. You’ve got the dinner reservation. Your Valentine’s Day plans are fully in tact—save one thing: You haven’t quite figured out how you want to accessorize your ensemble. Specifically, you haven’t decided what statement shoes you’ll wear this Valentine’s Day.

This qualm may seem a silly one; shoes are a fairly frivolous affair—why fret over something so trivial? But anyone who’s spent more than a moment considering what they’ll wear on a given day knows how vital shoes are to an entire get-up—how carefully curated statement shoes should be to maximize the impact of an ensemble without overshadowing any piece of the sartorial puzzle.

A good pair of statement shoes stands out, sure, but it doesn’t steal the show; it works in tandem with every other item you have on, leaving you the ultimate star of the show. And since February 14 is recognized by many as ~the sexiest day of the year~, getting your Valentine’s Day statement shoe game in order weeks in advance isn’t premature—it’s simply rational.
