Shoe Trends You Need To Watch Out For This Spring

13 April 2021

Between the never-ending scroll on Instagram and runway reports, it can actually be difficult to keep up with the must-try shoes for the new season. Although, after some research we are certain these will be the most popular shoe trends this spring.

After a year that saw most of us remotely working and socializing, it’s fair to say that the idea of wearing shoes can feel a bit weird. However, we’re hoping to be able to step into reality, and of course, wearing our shoes! As we believe the next few months will mainly be made up of walks, picnics and outdoor meals when restaurants reopen, we decided to collect all the shoe trends. We consider them everyday options and must haves to nail this season.

Since the past months we have seen a shift towards practicality in fashion, and this is most seen with shoes. The overarching need for comfort in footwear was certainly met with flat sandals standing out at most collections. And will we want to wear heels again? The answer is yes! But we will want them to be in the form of stable platforms, or manageable little heels. Therefore, we need our shoes to be able to take us anywhere without causing us any trouble, and so high heels have been less seen. Fashion designers and brands have for several seasons been bringing us sturdy, responsible shoes that are comfortable, stylish, and versatile. From sandals to trainers, these pairs of shoes will be the perfect partner to any look you can wear. 

Chunky Flip Flops

For the past couple of years chunky sandals have ruled. There are a couple of key styles that stand out and one of them are the Row’s Ginza flats. It can be weird using flimsy foam flip-flops for everyday life, but there’s something about these more substantial styles that bring the `90s minimal aesthetic making them really stylish.

The origin of ballet flats dates back to the French Revolution. And it is precisely in France that they were proposed for the first time. These shoes are not only taking center stage once again, but are successfully renewed. They go well with everything you pair them: statement skirts, tapered trousers, distressed denim, bright dresses. At Valentino ballet flats come both neutral and bright tones.

This won’t be a surprise to anyone, as white trainers are always a classic and a must have in any wardrobe. To anyone who loves fashion, sneakers are a cornerstone of our style. They are not just something to wear with leggings and a sports bra. So, white sneakers remain a staple for most of us, as they work so well with literally everything. In addition to the trainers being worn by influencers (they’re always a step ahead) they are also seen at Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga and many other designer stores.
