I can’t remember the first time I bought Mary Janes or where I wore them. What I remember is securing the buckle, shaking my socks and feeling ready. After a decade (more or less) hiatus, all the best Mary Janes, from the half-heeled versions of the DTC brands to the cult favorite Margiela Tabi topped with a Mary Jane buckle – make me fall in love with the style all over again. There’s a real shoe trend for fall 2022 here, but the prep-meets-parisian shoe has never really gone anywhere. Cassie Smart, Head of Womenswear at MatchesFashionsays his team has always been drawn to the Mary Janes, whether they’re on the catwalk or not.

The effortless chic of the Mary Jane style is why our customers gravitate toward this silhouette year after year,” Smart said. And she has style suggestions to prove it: they can polish jeans from FRAME and Chloe as easily as they complement office dividers as a Khaite blazer or dress shirt Raey and Totemshe says.

The designers who best reinvent Mary Janes in 2022 are drawn to their sense of history and versatility. “BY FAR’s design ethos is rooted in reimagining timeless silhouettes, and the Mary Jane is one of the most iconic styles of all time,” says brand co-founder and creative director Denitsa Bumbarova. “The simplicity of the Mary Jane belies a potential for experimentation and abstraction that is integral to [our] design spirit.

Then there is a purely practical element. When you’re not quite ready for boots, Larroudé co-founder Marina Larroudé says they make tricky transitional dressing easier. “Mary Janes have that utilitarian feel, while being flirty and fun,” she explains. “I’ve worn mine with sundresses and mini skirts this summer; for fall and winter I plan to wear them with jeans or tights and mini skirts. These will be my favourites.” We expect you to feel the same way about the 14 best upcoming Mary Janes, from black patent flats to blush pumps.
