As we unfortunately enter into the dead of winter, it is imperative that we set aside a little pile of things to look forward to—things that help us mentally escape the dreary forecasts from time to time. Well, my friends, there is a new shoe trend bubbling that will help you to do just that. This shoe trend is unlike anything you've ever seen before, for it's something that's not of this world—something we like to call "space shoes."
Space shoes are essentially shoes that look like they belong in outer space, are from a far-off planet somewhere, and could easily come from the costume department of the chicest space movie of our time. Believe it or not, designers like Prada, Fendi, and Balenciaga are leaders in this new trend movement, as they have created soles doused in metallics, neons, and alien-like graphics.
This trend might seem a bit out there because, well, it is, but that doesn't mean it's not approachable. When paired with the right ensemble, these shoes will help take your look to new heights. Ahead, check out some of the space-y shoes that have caught our attention and will surely convince you this trend is worth an intergalactic joy ride or two.
