7 Shoe Trends to Try Now (Before Everyone Else Is Wearing Them)

Our iCals may say April, but our sartorial minds are already thinking fall. Yes, we adore summer as much as the next girl (c’mon, we’re not crazy cold-worshipers), but the F/W 15 trends were just too good to not want to wear now—especially the fanciful footwear. Right? While we don’t have magical fashion powers to speed up production (we’re working on it), with a little shopping finesse, it’s easy to step into the trends that won’t officially be out until August.

Scroll below to check out seven of the best shoe trends from the fall runways and find out how to get the look now. Go on, get a leg, er, foot, up in the style department before everyone else does.

Before your mind goes to those styles of Lucite platforms, know that the see-through detail is actually surprisingly chic—especially as an accent to a pair of booties.

Miista Isabella Heeled Leather Sandals ($100)

The two-tone heel is what makes these sandals so unique.

Gianvito Rossi Leather Sandals ($1,100)

Do these even need an explanation? So elegant.

As seen at: 3.1 Phillip Lim



Designers including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Altuzarra, and Rebecca Minkoff got kinky this season, wrapping feet in bondage-like straps. While they may look like pain, promise they’re not.

Zara High Heel Strappy Slingback Sandals ($80)

Imagine these paired with an all-black outfit. On. Point.

Loeffler Randall Thea Gladiator Sandals ($375)

There's nothing black and white about these.

It’s impossible to walk into a store these days and not spot fringe. Well, the ‘70s-esque trim isn’t going anywhere come fall. But rather than hanging out on jackets and skirts, it’s making its way down to your ankles instead.

Topshop Muskat Fringe Suede Ankle Boots ($150)

Pair these with culottes or shorts so you don't overheat.


Whistles Acca Fringe Mule ($300)

If you want something more subtle, this sporty-esque fringe is just enough.

Can’t decide what colour shoe to wear on a particular day? Let your footwear decide for you with a colour-blocked pattern. (P.S. We can’t get enough of these stunning Carven beauties—are you with us?)

Tory Burch Colour Block Heel Mules ($404)

Shoes that are comfy and stylish (love that wedge)!

This plush fabric isn’t just reserved for the holidays anymore. Give your outfit an instant luxury boost with velvet in all shades.

The chunky heel makes these semi-comfortable to walk in.

As seen at: Alexander Wang



Give your stilettos a break and follow Alexander Wang’s lead by slipping into creepers to take your outfit to new heights.

T.U.K. Mondo Creepers ($80)

The original creepers' brand!

Purified Platform Creepers ($655)

The colour keeps these femme, but the style is anything but.

Fancy feet! Follow Dolce & Gabanna's lead and kick it in jewels and sparkly accents. The perfect finishing touch.
