Five Ways to Wear Metallic Shoes(Source: Imaxtree; L-R Saint Laurent, Christopher Kane)This spring calls for a reboot of your shoe wardrobe. The next time you reach for your wide array of black flats, black boots, and black heels, consider switching over to black's jazzier cousin: metallic.

Metallics have just as much versatility but offer more visual interest to the rest of your outfit. We're drawing inspiration from the Spring 2014 runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Acne, and Karen Walker, to name a few. To prove just how versatile stepping into gold, silver, and bronze can be, we've picked out five types of metallic shoes you can wear now.

High Heels
Metallic heels such as the above J.Crew pick ($248) can work well both for day time (sensible chunky heel) and nights out, thanks to the reflective silver color. Extra straps keep the shoe comfortable.

Tackle your weekend errands in this rose-gold style ($110.88) that seems as if its borrowed from the boys section, or wear them as an alternative to heels at a fancier affair.

Western-inspired boots are a must have to match with everything in your closet–better yet when they have a bit of shine to them, such as these Ash iterations ($200).

Rather than go for the typical flat shape, this laser-cut option ($285) stands out and works perfectly in warmer spring weather.
