8 red shoes to buy for Chinese New Year from $50

Toufie, Zara

In Chinese culture, red is an especially auspicious colour, symbolising meanings such as luck, fortune and happiness.

And especially in the period of Chinese New Year, many would deck themselves (and their houses) in red in hopes of gaining extra prosperity.

But if red is too striking and OTT for you to wear as a dress or other outfits, shoes take you to the next step forward (pun intended).

Here, we’ve curated eight pairs of stylish footwear for a Huat Lunar new year.
