Created in 1904 and recently re-popularized by celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kate Middleton, the Mary Jane is ready to step back into the spotlight this season. If you’re confused about what a Mary Jane is, I’ll give you a quick briefing: This popular shoe design can be best described as having a closed, rounded toe with a strap across the instep. Sometimes, they have heels; oftentimes, not. According to Inooknit, “The classic Mary Jane came in black (sometimes patent) leather and became the quintessential shoe to wear with your school uniform – the Mary Jane can be traced as far back as King Henry VIII.” 

Of course, there are many variations of this style around today that can be easily confused with loafers, ballet flats, or even kitten heels, but our rule of thumb is that if you like the look of it, you should wear it – no matter if it fits the original styling or not.

If you love balletcore or the coquette aesthetic, or just love an undeniably feminine shoe, Mary Janes deserve a spot in your closet. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite pairs under $150.
