The Out-There Shoe Trend You Can No Longer Ignore

I don’t tend to invest in trends easily or instantly, but sometimes when something is so in your face you can’t ignore it, I feel like it can be a sign to, well, stop ignoring it. That’s the point I’m reaching with the topic of today’s post: sculptural heels. While they’ve been on the market for several years now, they’ve slowly gone from a niche novelty only a few brands were producing to a full-blown mega trend, which can be found everywhere from Net-a-Porter to Zara. And, while you may think it sounds like it’s now too late in the game to hop on board, I feel like it’s exactly the opposite.
Sculptural heels have now reached the perfect balance of fresh, accessible, and most importantly: perfected, with no signs of exiting any time soon. Whether you want a more out-there version like Jacquemus’s multi-shape heeled sandals or a subdued style in the vein of Alchimia Di Ballin’s slides, there are not just a ton of options, but a ton of really good ones. To see my favorites at every heel height, price point, and should we say daringness, simply keep scrolling below.
