The spring/summer 2017 shoe trends are interesting, bold and innovative. There are some familiar looks as well as some welcome trends that are gaining in popularity on the runways in Paris, London, New York and Milan. Here are some of the top spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends we found on the Fashion Week runways:
Adding height and drama, platform shoes are making a comeback.
#2: Kitten Heels
Perfect with sheer tights, kitten heels are becoming a part of every major designer’s collection for 2017.
#3: Quirky Flatforms
A flat version of a platform shoe, flatforms offer style and comfort with a variety of prints and embellishments.
#4: Thin Stilettos
The classic stiletto can be worn by almost any woman and is the perfect complement to a date night outfit or a professional look that means business.
#5: Rounded Heels
Although the rounded heel has appeared in previous collections, they seem to have a strong foothold in 2017 as women are turning away from the geometrically shaped heels currently offered.
#6: Sandals with Socks
Sandals with socks can be seen across the runways and although this used to be a fashion no, it seems that 2017 is making it a fashion go.
#7: Socks and Boots
Socks and boots not only make your legs look great, they also add style with intriguing textures and corresponding coloring.
#8: Breathable Footwear
Breathable boots and shoes with vented holes in the sides or mesh materials are becoming increasingly popular with many of the top designers.
#9: Laced Up and Bound
The tightly laced or bound look is showing up on runways around the world and we think that these intriguing designs look incredible. You can find both boots and sandals featuring the laced look.
#10: Open Back Footwear
With both thick or thin ankle straps, open back footwear offers style, colour and interesting patterns in a wide range of shoe types.
From sandals to mules, designers are turning to snakeskin for their hottest looks.
#12: Futuristic Footwear
With everything from storm trooper inspired boots, to half leather/half reptile creations, some of the industry’s most innovative designers are adopting this new trend.
