There’s two kinds of people: ones that believe shoes can make or break an outfit, and those who never even think about shoes. If you belong to the first kind, you probably love buying new shoes and have a lot of very interesting ones in your collection. You probably like having different models of shoes, bright colored shoes, or ones with patterns, you follow the trends. If you’re one of those people who isn’t into bright colored shoes and don’t really think about them when choosing your outfit, I have a surprise for you – you still care about shoes, probably more than you think. People who only have a few pairs of shoes usually put way more thought into their purchase. They care about the quality of the shoes, what materials are they made of, how long will they last and usually go for a style that will go with most outfits. So since we all care about shoes in one way or another, we decided to tell you about the hottest shoes trends for summer 2017.
Sneakers are incredibly popular these days, probably even more popular than they were in the 80s and 90s. They’re everywhere, in every color and pattern imaginable. There’s so much to choose from, and this is a great time for sneaker-heads who love expressing themselves through fun sneakers. So go for whatever your little heart desires, florals, spikes, jewels, fake fur – it’s all in this summer.
2. Ballerina Flats
These aren’t your normal flats. They actually look like ballet points, except they’re way more comfortable. So they’re really the best of both worlds, you can look and feel like a ballerina but at the same time be very comfortable. These ballerina flats are a great way to add a bit of elegance to your outfit.
3. Kitten Heels
Kitten heels are back. They are no longer just for little girls. If you love the look of heels but hate wearing stilettos, rejoice, your time has come. You can wear heels and be comfortable at the same time. These shoes are made for walking, unlike those sky-high stilettos, which I’m convinced are made for sitting in.
4. Removable Platforms
This is a revolutionary new idea. The two-in-one shoes. They look like funky platform shoes, and you can definitely wear them as a statement piece, but in case you get bored of being the center of attention or, perhaps, you keep twisting your ankles because you’re not great at walking in platform shoes, you can just remove the platform and wear them as slippers. Isn’t that just freaking brilliant?
5. Sock Shoes
I’m not sure if that’s the official name of this kind of shoes but if it was up to me I’d name them “the sock shoes” because that’s what they look like to me. They’re probably not the easiest shoes to put on, but we hear they’re actually quite comfortable. Also, they’re definitely very in this season. All the popular fashion bloggers keep wearing them.
While “mules” don’t sound like the most appealing kind of shoes, you should look beyond the name. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and stylish at the same time. They add an element of casualness to any outfit, without trying too hard. But at the same time, you can definitely dress them up for the occasion.
7. Clear Shoes
Clear shoes are becoming more and more popular. They’re a great choice for those who like simple outfits. It’s also a great choice for those who like wearing one bright piece, like a dress, and don’t want to draw attention away from it with any other accessories or clothing items. These days we have lots to choose from, clear flats, jellies, clear heels, boots, and even clear sneakers.
