If we’re being completely honest, designer shoes don’t come cheap. These luxury goods are more than just an item, but rather the manifestation of a whole team of creative's skill and talent poured into creating something of value. As such, you’re not merely paying for the footwear itself but also the effort spent in designing and perfecting each part that make up the footwear. That said, purchasing a designer pair of shoe  isn’t a decision one should take lightly and factors such as affordability and usability should be kept in mind.

If you have plans on making your first big purchase in the shoe department soon, here to give you some inspiration are several stylish local influencers who shared with us what their best designer investment when it came to footwear was. Check them out below!

LOOK: Influencers Share the Best Designer Shoe Investment They Made

1. Angel Yeo

"My two best designer shoes [I] invested in are the Hermès Oran in White and Chanel Sneakers in Triple White. Hermès Oran sandals are classics! It truly goes with everything and I have never found such a classic sandal that I know I’d wear year after year and on any occasion—daily errands, beach trips, day out with my girls, or date night! They are my favorite day-to-night shoes. Chanel Sneakers Triple White are my comfiest sneakers yet, so they are definitely on my list of best shoe investments! This pair caught my eye because of its clean sporty look but I fell in love once I tried them on—comfort & style."

"One of my favorite pieces is my Chanel Sneakers. I think they are one of the most comfortable designer kicks out there and the design is quite simply perfect for everyday/travel. I was also able to get it back when the price hike wasn’t implemented. Right now, it’s almost twice as much as I have originally paid."

5. Patricia Santos

"The best designer shoes I’ve invested in so far are my Begum & Rosie Amina Muaddi’s. I started collecting them a few years ago, [and] the price has gone up high that online it’s being sold more than 2-3x the amount I bought it. It is an investment piece [because] even after wearing them, the value of the shoes didn’t go down and also I just really love how flexible the style is. I can wear it with at any formal/cocktail events and dress it down and wear [them] on a regular day [by] pairing it with denim or shorts."

"For now, I super like the Chanel Lambskin Sandals [They’re] super comfy (which is a plus, [because] there are a lot of designer shoes na hindi comfy) and it elevates your height din since it’s like a wedge type of sandal. And I feel like it’s worth investing [because’ you can use it for everyday (for me that’s super important [because] I feel like—if you use it always, you can ROI it) plus it looks chic din! I liked it that much, I got two in both [different] colors! Pero no regrets."
