The Shoe Trends Everyone Will Wear in 7 Months

We've been on shoe trend watch for the past month (tough gig, we know). And now that Paris Fashion Week has drawn to a close and every designer has shared with the world the footwear they're endorsing for autumn 2017, we've come to some conclusions. We scanned the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris for shoe trends that appeared over and over again, and we narrowed it down to six that everyone is talking about now, and therefore choose to wear come September.

While you may be thinking But spring hasn't even officially started, being in the know from the start will ensure that you get first dibs on the best styles before they sell out. Not only that, but it's not too soon to pick up these trends today, especially if you really want to impress your friends with how trend-savvy you are (not that we had any doubts!). Ready to find out which shoe trends are coming for everyone's wardrobes this autumn?
