From trainers to heels, we’ve got you covered.
There were a lot of 90s inspired footwear this season, and the biggest indication of the 90s shoe invasion is the comeback of the skate shoe. Not straying far from its original silhouette, these sporty slip-ons, which are high on street cred, have gained high fashion cred as well. Givenchy, Lanvin, and Miu Miu, each have their own decked out version of this footwear trend. No need to shell out big bucks to be on trend. High street footwear brands like Steve Madden, Topshop, and Aldo have their own take on this trend. Typically playing on texture these comfy slip-ons comes in various prints and textiles like leopard print, snakeskin, pony hair, and floral print.
Before you buy any other shoe, get yourself some Buck. It looks timeless. Its versatility is endless – whether plain toe or wing tip. Yes, this season is all about the suede Buck, because when it comes to shoes to wear with a smart-casual outfit they play the perfect part. So, if you’re going on a date, or you just want to look better than a t-shirt and jeans reach for the Buck.
Often thought as ‘staple dyke’ footwear, bloggers and editors from all over started jumping on the bandwagon of yet another 90s trend – Birkenstocks. Can we say hallelujah? Our feet could use some TLC from the cushioned soles and ergonomic design of these sandals. One rule remains, do not wear these with white socks.
Pointed Toe Flats
This season is all about flats. Pointed toe flats should be your staple this summer. You can update from the normal slip on style by choosing a pair with ankle strap detail or with a laser cut leather material. The hottest trend within this trend is the pointed D’orsay flat, feminine and flattering; this is definitely the must-have shoe of the summer.
