Instagram Is Flooded With These "Boring" Shoe Trends

Instagram is typically a place where fashion people showcase their most "extra" pieces and looks in order to stand out in a follower's feed (no small feat), but lately that hasn't been the case as far as footwear is concerned. We couldn't help but notice that many of the shoe trends that are currently trending on Instagram are, well, kind of boring.  

This isn't to say that the aforementioned extra shoe trends aren't still a thing (here's some proof), but it is to say that we need basic shoe styles in our closets just like we need clothing basics like jeans, blazers, and tees. If you think about it, the basic shoes you own are the most versatile, and, therefore, it's imperative to remember to buy them. Whether it's flats, heels, boots, or sneakers you're seeking, we strongly advise paying attention to the five trending styles below. They may not end up being the most exciting shoes in your closet, but they could end up being the the ones you wear the most this season.

Keep scrolling to shop five "boring" shoe trends that are blowing up on Instagram.


"Boring" beige is arguably the color of the year (sorry, living coral), so it's no surprise that it's infiltrated the shoe market as well.

White Platform Sneakers

The white sneaker trend is nothing new, but lately, fashion girls have been choosing pairs that offer a bit of lift via a platform sole.

Floss Sandals

Floss sandals look incredibly cool and fresh this season, but there really isn't much to them. Nevertheless, we're spotting them all over Instagram, and spring has barely even begun.

Basic Pumps

Basic pumps are as classic of a heel style as you can get, and they happen to look amazing with 2019's biggest denim trend: loose jeans.
