If you want to dress like an iconic villain with a twisted history, while looking good doing it, she is most definitely your girl.
The options are endless, plus, since the character has undergone multiple outfit overhauls, you can find a Harley to fit your tastes. Then all you have to do is practice her accent, and maybe find a Puddin’ to tag along on your Arkham adventures!
Criteria Used for Evaluation
While we have picked for streetwear and cosplay, we want everything you wear to be ultra comfortable. Most people who have a love affair with Harley Quinn are committed to the character, and extremely likely to have a recurring date with dressing up as Dr. Quinzel herself. So for them, we require each choice to be comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time.
If you are cosplaying on a convention floor, you will be hounded for pictures. Whether they be ensemble photos when you find your Joker counterpart, or a sick battle scene of you challenging Batman himself. We want you to have fun, and it is hard to have fun if your feet feel miserable.
The solution is simple, harlequin style shoes that you'll love wearing as much as you love the shoe itself. With padded insoles, platforms to lessen heel height, and sturdy soles, you won't be dying to leave the costume party early or dreading heading out to explore your favorite convention. Really, that is all anyone can ask from the footwear that completes their ensemble.
If no one knows who you're cosplaying, what is the point, anyway? There are a few officially licensed products here. DC having their hands in the pot when designing these shoes means accuracy.
Harley has a ton of signature looks, and you want to make sure you get them right whichever ones you choose. Let's make that happen. We rated accuracy in a few ways.
One is in terms of recognizability to the character herself. Classic diamonds? Check. Spot on color schemes? Check. A style that fits every adaptation? Check.
Sometimes the shoes make the outfit. If you are looking to really tie a look together from the feet up, there are great options here for you. You don't want to be mistaken for just any old court jester, so let's make sure you're putting that best clown foot forward!
Quinn is a style icon, whether she is sane enough to realize that or not. What is the most recognizable thing about her though? Yep, you called it, her color scheme.
From the black, white, red, and blue suicide squad Quinn, all the way to her OG red and black, colors are key. There is a pair of shoes or booties for every imagining of our favorite girl. If you choose her original look? We have you covered.
If you want a more graphic novel style, the white and black boots from Funtasm are the perfect fit. The flat tricolor, high rise boots on this list are perfect for a Gotham Sirens Cosplay, accompanied by your main squeeze Poison Ivy, and the dangerous Catwoman. Colors count here, and if you want to mix it up as a different Harley at every event, we want to make that possible.
A basic black combat boot is perfect for the punky skintight blood red and black Harley. In her tough girl vest and darkest color scheme of all, you won't be left in the dust in not finding a shoe to fit which version you love the most. Every color combo she has ever worn is here, for your convenience.
Harley Quinn might be a little off her rocker, that much is true. What is undeniable still is that the girl can DRESS. Always to the nines, our girl loves turning heads and flirting up a storm. Your footwear should reflect the character you're wearing it for, so we kept her spunk in mind.
From the flirtiest of cutouts on the Chong Sheng Boots to the absolutely adorable black and red Ellie Shoes booties, Harley may be laughing, but this style is no joke. The heeled options here are beautiful regardless of the nod to our Arkham cutie.
The DC Comics slip-on, and Bioworld flats are hot street-wear options, even if not in full costume. The Converse All Stars can be rocked in plain clothes or jumpsuit. We want styles that are sexy, wearable, and downright to die for. It is plain to see what is lovable about these choices, you definitely won't feel trapped once you've committed to one of these pairs.
As you have probably noticed by now, I am a little infatuated with this character, so I personally wanted to make sure our list catered to the unique Harleys in us all. There are a lot of Harleys, according to the Joker even, who claims she is one of many sidekicks he has tricked into loving him over the years. For all intents and purposes, we want to recognize each unique imagining of her character.
From the DC Comics where she is dark, playful, and slightly damaged, we have neutral options such as the Daily Shoes and Converse picks. Batman: The Animated Series had its own Harley. In a full-blown jester costume, and the Ellie Shoes booties are as close as you get to her footwear. Suicide Squad dressed her up in short shorts, bedazzled dresses, and high heeled boots. Multiple picks are near replicas to her big screen feature.
Then for those who want to create a Harley all their own, we have the Padgene Wedge, which is edgy and comfortable, and perfect for a teen Harley look. The deep red Shenn combat option could be for a decidedly goth Quinn, skull adorning the heel for that extra oomph. Not to mention, if you're anything like me, these shoes will fit right into our wardrobe.

The Referee 125 by Funtasma is vegan-friendly and has a 3.75-inch heel. The material is soft and plush and will feel great all night. The heel is a bit high, but Pleaser has long had a foot up on the competition if you will, when it comes to heels that can be worn for extended periods of time. Their brand wants every pair to prescribe to fashion and function, and once you lace these babies on, you’ll feel the difference.
This black matte and white leather option tend to be a bit more expensive than a throwaway event shoe, but that is because they are much more than that. The bottoms are padded and ultra comfortable, and the black and white style is subtle enough to wear costume or not. Sharp black contrast stitching on the white faux leather makes for a sleek upper. Flared out heels add a bit more balance to this trendy style.

A near replica to the shoes worn in Suicide Squad, it would be exceedingly difficult to even notice the slight differences if you’re all done up as the harlequin queen herself.

Handmade detailing is in every pair, and quality assurance guarantees a solution if there are any issues with this gorgeous design.

Pair them with ripped fishnet stockings and shorts for a Harley Quinn look, or even add your own diamond emblems at the top for a bit of flair.
