Brian Atwood’s “Maniac” sequined velvet platform pumps ($845) are new for the Fall 2013 season. In typical Atwood taste, the designer has created a very chic, but bold, fashion forward shoe. The light-catching sequins offer red carpet style to this leather-trimmed velvet shoe, anchored by a hidden platform and soaring heel. This shoe is more versatile than you might initially think. It pairs well with dressy pants, skirts and dresses. The velvet material adds texture to the shoe and the subtle sequins add just the right amount of sparkle.
