The Shoe Styles That Are In and Out This Year
There’s no better time to clean out your shoe closet than right now, at the beginning of the year when you’re reinventing yourself. While you undoubtedly have those staples (like your go-to black pumps), chances are there are a few dated styles that don’t merit a coveted spot on your shelf. Alternatively, as with every new season, there are styles totally worth adding to round out your offering.
To fill you in on the shoe styles you should try and toss this season, we tapped footwear designers to share the silhouettes that are in and out right now.

In: "For spring 2016, we see the espadrille as the IN luxury shoe that feels casual yet refined. It's only human to hate the feeling of raw jute underfoot, especially as the weather heats up. So we padded and covered the espadrille footbed with our insole in soft Spanish leather. The PALMA slide is a modern and simple take on the espadrille sandal." — Matt Bernson
Out: "I see the wedge sneaker as the OUT item for 2016. While they may have been all the rage with street style bloggers, celebs, and editors, it has officially passed in favor of old-school sneaker minimalism. If your sneaker has a hidden wedge, it's time to hide it in the closet." — Matt Bernson
In: "I think that ornament slides are in for spring 2016. It's a good alternative for the dreaded flip-flop. They are easy to wear and a great statement piece for any spring/summer outfit." — Isa Tapia
Out: "I think tall gladiator sandals are out. They are hard to pull off unless you are a supermodel." — Isa Tapia
