There’s a new shoe trend in town, and unlike a handful of other footwear fads we’re seeing on the horizon for the coming season, I think it’s one that everyone can get behind because, well, it’s just lovely. That’s right: Pretty chain details are showing up on a handful of new spring shoe styles to hit the internet already, and at this pace, we’re only expecting the momentum to continue. After all, when every brand from Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent to Topshop and Zara is on board, you know you've got something worth paying attention to, and this trend definitely falls into that category. At least, that's what our friends at Net-a-Porter told us when they presented their S/S 20 trend report to a group of editors back in November. To see and shop all of the chain-embellished pumps, sandals, flats, and even sneakers we're loving right now, just keep scrolling.

Yes, that's a delicate gold chain holding the shoe together.

This whole visual has me so excited for summer.

I don't need to tell you that Manolo always gets it right.

Just imagine how good these would look with your favorite jeans.

These also come in tan, and it was a close race between the two. Either way, you can't go wrong.

This heel height is easy for wearing from day to night.

Is it even a trend if Zara isn't on board?

When you can't choose between silver and gold.

One could argue that these are the shoes that started it all.

This accessory brand takes it one step further with these fun charms.

Your LBD will never be the same after you wear it with these.

The peep-toe gives these a classic touch.
