A new season is just around the corner, and one of the easiest ways to take on spring’s coolest new trends is with a brand-spanking-new pair of shoes. The S/S 20 runways provided a fresh wave of shoe inspiration destined to be all over our feeds in just a few months’ time. Luckily, there’s a little something to suit every sartorial taste. Pumps and heels came embellished with gorgeous chains, and loafers got a modern update in the form of high heels, slingbacks, and hardware. Lace-up ankle-strap sandals zhuzhed up spring dresses, and for the minimalists, sleek toe-ring and thong designs added polish to every ensemble. Below, we’re rounding up some of the biggest shoe trends for spring and summer 2020 that you can score right now for under $100—because we know there’s still plenty of shopping to do before the new season arrives.
