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.
