If you’re anything like me, you know that shoes can make or break an outfit. From the perfect pair of heels to the comfiest flats, there’s always a shoe trend to get excited about. The runways this year showcased some truly exciting styles, and I’ve rounded up the top trends that are set to dominate our shoe racks.

1. Hosiery & Socks

Etro

It’s time to stock up on chunky socks to wear with your favourite spring wedges. You can hop on the trend by pairing tights with strappy or open-toed heels, as seen in collections from Missoni, LaQuan Smith, and Jil Sander. This fashion month, stockings were everywhere, listing the designers who didn’t feature them would be quicker.

 2. Flip flops

Miu Miu

Flip flops are no longer just for lazy days at home. They have been reinvented with stylish updates, making them a fashionable yet comfortable choice for everyday wear. Look for variations with interesting textures and colours to stay on-trend.

3. Platform Heels

Platform heels are back, and they’re bolder than ever. These shoes add height without the discomfort of traditional stilettos, making them a favourite for both day and night looks. Give your favourite loafers a lift, just like Gucci did, or follow the lead of Collina Strada, Sunnei, and Etro by stepping into some chunky sandals.

4. Ballet Flats

Simone Rocha

Ballet flats are stepping back into the spotlight with elegant and refined designs. These versatile shoes are perfect for those who love a mix of comfort and style. Whether you choose a classic nude or an embellished pair, ballet flats are a timeless addition to any wardrobe.

 5. Mary Janes

Chanel

The classic Mary Jane is experiencing a modern revival. This nostalgic style is being updated with contemporary touches like chunky heels and bold colours. They’re perfect for adding a playful yet sophisticated touch to your wardrobe.

 6. Fur Accents

Ferragamo

Shoes with fur accents are adding a touch of luxury and fun to footwear this season. From fur-lined loafers to fluffy sandals, this trend brings an element of cosiness and opulence to your look. They’re perfect for making a statement while staying comfortable.

 7. Spikes

Collina Strada

Spiked shoes brought a punk-inspired edge to the runway. Pick from heels, flats, or boots to add a bold and rebellious touch to your outfit. Pair them with simple pieces to let your shoes do all the talking.

Remember, the best part about trends is making them your own. Mix and match, experiment, and most importantly, have fun.
