Cowgirl boots, clogs, and gladiators sandals…
We are in the middle of everyone’s favourite season, spring! And as expected, the trends in clothing, accessories, and footwear, straight from the runway shows, are approaching. But our favourite, without a doubt, is the footwear! This warmer season is putting a strong maximalist spin on your feet. Whether you’re walking around in sky-high boots or taking your sneaker game to the next level with bright colours, there’s a shoe trend for everyone.
The spring 2023 runways proposed modern classic silhouettes, new feminine styles, clogs, and ballerinas that remind us of ballet flats, platforms, and pointy heels with lots of personality and unexpected colours. Heels have always been a classic and necessary element as well, as a great complement to your outfit if you want to look chic and elegant, as we saw on the runways of Bottega Veneta, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung, Loewe, and Valentino, among other designers. Ballerinas are also making a strong statement and are making a strong comeback this year. Even people who don’t follow trends know that ballerinas are in. They are everywhere, but Sandy Liang’s version, inspired by the square toe of a ballerina, has become as popular as those of Miu Miu and Prada.
Discover below the most outstanding shoe styles for Spring 2023.
If there was one footwear trend that dominated early summer 2022, it was the cowboy boot. Both social media and the most recognized runways proved that the rodeo-ready boot was the cool girl’s footwear of choice, paired effortlessly with warm weather favorites like a lingerie dress and mini skirt for a modern take on the blazer. The trend is still going strong, now paired with tailored pants or flouncy midi dresses.

Clogs have boomed thanks to our new remote work lifestyle. Due to their popularity, designers took the original functional design and made clogs fashionable. High fashion brands like Hermès and Louis Vuitton put a twist on the shoe making it a fashion statement and a comfortable alternative to heels.
