Dust the sand off your tootsies and get ’em into the hottest footwear of the season
Shoe styles to see you into next season
Put a sock on it
Sock boots were big a few seasons ago and now they’re back. As seen on the Balenciaga catwalk and every street styler going, forget your classic black leather ankle boots and go for neoprene or stretch fabrics instead. And, for A/W17, stick to bold brights.
Flats reign supreme this A/W17. Take inspo from the Miu Miu catwalk, and up the embellishment factor with a pair of bold beauts. These styles will look great with a pleated skirt and tee, or boyfriend jeans and a shirt.
Come on, brogue
Not one for a delicate flat? The brogue has you covered, but this season the lace-up has had a style update. Seriously chunky soles will keep your look cool, while metallic, glitzy finishes will give them a glam makeover.
Shoes with a view
Seventies styling is having a resurgence, and that means platform heels are top of our shoe-shopping list. Which is great news for your feet – they’re so much comfier than spike heels. Just make sure you go for studs, sparkles or sequins.
Sling it back…
Yup, they’re sticking around. The ideal shoe for transitional dressing, go for an update on this staple with either a kitten or low heel with an almond toe – it’ll look more fashion than ’80s reject, we promise.
…Slip it up
Moving on from the backless loafer, the new must-have is the comfy slip-on shoe with a square or pointed toe. Try plain or textured leather, or embroidered, and wear with everything.
