Mary Janes are not just for Mary Sues anymore, at least according to top fashion brands. We've previously delved deep into the history of these strappy stars, but suffice to say that they're going stronger than ever; below, our favourite in-season examples from fashion's heavy hitters — click on the descriptions to shop them all.

Prada

With their '90s-esque, treacherously spindly heels and skinny straps, it's easy to imagine Prada's Mary Janes on the feet of Sharon Stone's unhinged crime novelist from Basic Instinct.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Paul Andrew's new Refracted heels for Ferragamo add an architectural touch to otherwise minimalist Mary Janes.

Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo's bedazzled buckles are precisely the kind of fancy footwear that Velma Kelly smokily sang of in All That Jazz.

Roger Vivier

The spirit of Carnaby Street in the '60s lives on in Gherardo Felloni's punchy, patent Mary Janes for Roger Vivier.

Miu Miu

Looking at Miu Miu's glittery shoes, we can't help but recall Dorothy Gale's infamous ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz; if only one could avoid overcrowded commutes home with a simple click of the heels.

Tabitha Simmons

The straps of Tabitha Simmons's floral-patterned, silk flats fasten with a dainty pearl button.
