11 Shoe Trends the Coolest London Girls Are Wearing

London Fashion Week was a feast for the eyes in more ways than one. From the breathtaking collections by the likes of Erdem and Christoper Kane to the street style of the showgoers, there was much to behold. One of the things we never forget to do when faced with so much sartorial inspiration is to look down—at everyone's shoes. British girls have proven themselves quite loyal to a shoe trend once they grasp it (their recent affinity for Tevas is particularly noteworthy), so we're always intrigued to see what their new favorite styles are come fashion week.

Stylish Londoners like Lucy Williams, Caroline Issa, Lisa Aiken, and Susie Lau served up so much fresh shoe trend inspiration at London Fashion Week, and we're here to make it known. Keep scrolling to familiarize yourself with the 11 styles that you're going to see everywhere in the UK (and elsewhere, no doubt) soon.

Take a cue from Lucy Williams and get yourself a pair of chunky loafers, which lend a fresh retro feel to a look.

Two-Tone Shoes

Caroline Issa's graphic two-tone shoes prove just how eye-catching this trend is.

Knee-High Boots

In addition to lug-sole boots, knee-high boots are a shoe trend that literally every fashion person is buzzing about.

T-Strap Heels

This micro-trend is one that we're keeping an eye on, as is Moda Operandi's Lisa Aiken, apparently.

Lug-Sole Boots

Lug soles are being embraced by practically ever major shoe brand right now, so it shouldn't be hard to get your hands on a pair.


This polarizing trend just keeps increasing in popularity, so you may want to consider a pair. Staud makes our current favorites.


If you want to wear flats but are bored with sneakers, ballet flats, and loafers, it may be time to try a pair of chic lace-up oxfords like Caroline Issa's.


Platforms are all over the S/S 20 runways, so expect to start seeing a lot of this trend.

Animal-Print Shoes

Animal print may not be anything particularly new, but on your feet is the freshest way to wear it this season.


If you want to wear the flip-flop trend like a British girl, do so by pairing them with a flowy midi dress.
