Larroudé has been in the footwear game only since December 2020, but it’s quickly become one of my go-to brands. Cofounder and designer Marina Larroudé has a knack for designing sky-high heels (which I consider true staples for the semi-post-pandemic, “Everything’s back, baby!” era we’re in) that aren’t just wearable but also extremely compliment prone.
Naturally, the label has made appearances in BAZAAR‘s lists of the best boots, Mary Janes, and platforms. But Larroudé’s fans aren’t just fashion editors—Mary J. Blige, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Dakota Johnson have all been spotted wearing the brand as well. “The list is very extensive,” the designer admits of the brand’s growing celebrity fandom. But one favorite cameo stands out in her mind: “I do remember Alicia Keys wearing the Kate Boots in ivory to celebrate her birthday during the day, and at night, she swiped it for the same boots but in black suede. So iconic!”
The list of devotees is about to grow even more given that Larroudé is bringing back its annual sale. It’s an early Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal, starting today, November 14, and lasting until November 28. All the brand’s best shoes—from point-toe, knee-high boots to brightly patterned platform sandals—are included, and they’re all 50 percent off. Given the overwhelming amount of styles to choose from, I ask Larroudé where to start. Her first suggestion is the best-selling Miso Platform Sandal in a funky linen floral print. “This daisy print is one of our signatures, so this is a great opportunity to purchase one of our iconic pieces at a great deal,” she says.
You can’t go wrong with the brand’s more experimental mules or its retro sandal heels either. Shop our favourite pairs below, then check out the entire Larroudé sale before the deals end on November 28.
