New York Fashion Week has officially come to an end, and this season designers pushed the envelope when it came to shoes. While classic heels and neutral colors were sent down the runway, other brands decided to use the opportunity to showcase wild styles to make their shows even more memorable.

Prabal Gurung brought bright color combinations with his striped turquoise and yellow booties, while at the Philipp Plein and Billionaire shows, neon butterfly cowboy boots made a statement. Tory Burch and Proenza Schouler also
