The Polarizing Shoe Trend That Dominated Fashion Month

With the seemingly never-ending fashion month finally coming to a close this week, it was about time we took a look back at the many shows, looks, and even trends that deserved a double take after the dust had settled. One unexpected trend that undeniably stood out among the rest was socks with heels (both pumps and sandals), which notably replaced your typical seasonal ankle boots on more than just a couple of the fall runways. Could this often polarizing shoe trend be the look everyone talks about come fall 2017? We sure hope so and believe you will too once you see the runway “proof” from the likes of Isabel Marant, Virgil Abloh’s Off-White, Rochas, Dries Van Noten, and more.

From under-the-radar styling to standout combos, see the most amazing sock-and-heel moments from the fall 2017 runways below, and then continue to shop our favorite pairings to get the look now before it’s big!
