Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends

The spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends are as interesting as the rest of the amazing lineup we have been looking at over the past two months. From the different looks that were strutted down those runways in Paris, London, New York and Milan to the accessories and colors, along with the prints and materials, the spring 2017 fashion trends have definitely been a hit.

We have absolutely loved the shows that allowed you to see it and buy it now as well, something a few rather top designers had signed up for and one that we are very happy to see sweeping the industry. But more than anything else, it was the spring/ summer 2017 footwear trends that had us super excited, since they appeared in so many styles and brought back so many memories from days long gone. After all, it is not an everyday sight to have designer logos as the heels of your favorite pumps.

Spring 2017 shoes are cool and hip and sometimes even totally in line with the latest social trends as well, such as that Marc Jacobs Pokemon platform that brings the latest Pokemon Go fad to mind. We see such intriguing creations throughout that we cannot help but think that the shoes are what will make or break your wardrobe half the time at least during the spring of 2017.

They are colorful and interesting, creatively done and sometimes with a fairy tale twist, like the bright green stiletto body contouring boots at Balenciaga. We even saw crocs on the runways and it has thrown us for a spin!

The top spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends we discovered on the Fashion Week runways include but are not limited to:

1. Platforms All Over

One of the top summer 2017 shoe trends to pull into focus is the platform trend, adding height and loveliness to just about any shoe that appears on the runways. We see them in breathable boots in monochromatic colors at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Erdem’s snakeskin combination with ankle lacing and gorgeous platform heels certainly gets us thinking about statement footwear to match with some of the plainer designer dresses we saw on those spectacular runway shows. Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu and so many more did awesome work in their adaptations of this particularly popular shoe style.

 2. Those Kitten Heels

There is nothing sexier than giving just a hint of something special, and kitten heels have long been that perfect little formula to add an arch without hurting the feet and create an air of adorable mystery. Whether those lovely spring 2017 footwear designs are branded steppers or strappy sandals worn with sheer tights, this is a look that most of the top designers have added to their repertoires.

Celine’s darling heels are way cool in and of themselves, worn with sheer stockings and adhering to the stocking with sandal trend as well. Dior’s got its logos shown strongly, while it’s all about the party in comfort at Miu Miu.

3. Flatforms with Quirk

You know about the platforms, but how do you feel about the flat versions? With flatform heels and a flat sole, these are a platform and flats combination that took over the spring 2017 shoe trends throughout the Fashion Weeks. Brands really were not shy about flats it seems, and crazy prints with crazy embellishments were totally in.

Gucci’s Oriental designs and ankle straps were certainly something we could invest in. Flatforms with a shiny advantage are literally all glittered up at Balmain as well, giving the footwear all the height and none of the pitch we are used to with other heels.

4. Thin Stilettos

Okay, we get it… this is a season of contrasts. If you can wear one style, you most certainly can wear the opposite. In the clothing that meant both shoulder pads and transparent materials, both miniskirts and long midis, etc.

In shoes, it means both the chunky awesomeness that provides comfort and the slim chicness that is all about the delicate femininity of the woman. It means open-toe sandals with stockings at Altuzarra and thigh-high boots that really hug the legs tight at Gucci and Balenciaga.

5. Rounded Heels

There is just something about geometrically shaped heels that gets our blood boiling and seeing the spring 2017 footwear trends including the circular designs was certainly pleasantly surprising. It has appeared in previous seasons as well, but the trend combinations are what make them awesome here.

Color blocking with Jacquemus, for example, put the black, white and nude pieces that are all about chunky meets dainty at the top of the shopping list.


6. Branded Footwear

The summer 2017 shoe trends would not be complete without the branding that has taken over the runways over the latest Fashion Week shows all over the world. We see cute little kitten heels with “J’ADIOR” straps on the Dior showcasing, while many others add their labels to the heels or all around the footwear they have their models’ feet clad in.

As for Saint Laurent, it appears that sometimes the heels are a great way to show off your logo and still appear as cool as possible.

7. Sandals With Socks

This trend was all over the runways during the spring 2017 presentations at Fashion Week. We see all kinds of creations here, from Givenchy’s laced up yellow sandals worn with thick brown socks to a look that is entirely unexpected, creating a boot out of a synthetic sock-like material that is worn with strappy barely there stiletto sandals.

Celine’s funky slider and latex sock looks created sock boots that are simply to die for. We have to admit though, sometimes the stockings with sandals really was cool, especially when the stockings were graffiti tights and the sandals had some really funky heels as per Libertine’s imaginings brought to the New York runway.

8. Socks and Boots

We see socks and sandals quite a bit, but it is the socks and boots that is the top trend to focus on here, whether as separates or fused together. There are some incredibly gorgeous pieces that really look so very lovely on the legs, emphasizing the best parts of the lower limbs and creating some intriguing textures with corresponding coloring.

Fendi’s very fall-like footwear is definitely at the top of the list here, whereas we see something that is less expected, with more loafer-like entirely synthetic shoes mixed in with over-the-knee sock-like additions that are totally a main part of the DKNY footwear masterpieces.

Western boots and colorful socks can also be paired together quite comfortably this spring if Anna Sui’s fashion sense is at all to be taken into consideration.

9. Sheer Tights with Strappy Sandals

Sheer socks and tights are also in this season and we are wondering what to do with it. After all, it has been so taboo to wear them sheer with sandals for so long, it is strange to see this trend taking center stage.

Open toes and ankle straps are not only okay, but entirely recommended for the spring and summer of 2017! That was clearly seen at Celine, where banana yellow single-toe-strap and ankle-strap sandals were paired with sheer black stockings. Altuzarra’s red divinity also proves that stockings can be colorful and playful and also have dark toe covers. Who would have thought?


10. Those Sock Boots

We saw boots with socks and some other funky designs, but this really does need its own category. It is a boot that literally looks like it is made from a sock in a shoe or something similar, it is a cozy trend and a sometimes rather not so pretty one as we noticed at Loewe. Fendi had some awesome athleisure though, and Dolce & Gabbana’s designs were super hot, black lace stilettoes and all.

11. Shiny Shoe Goodness

We like to shine our boots and shoes and go out for the night or day all the time. But when that shine suddenly takes on a new meaning, it appears that it is a party day in and day out. Whether we are talking ruffles on pretty stilettos like with Saint Laurent or gold and silver disco-ready flatforms from Balmain, this is one spring/ summer 2017 shoe trend that we can really have a lot of fun with, especially if we make the shoes the statement of the outfit for the day.

12. Breathable Footwear

We see a lot of boots and shoes especially that allow for breathing room with holes all over or a mesh creation. We even see Crocs throughout the weeks with their holes that allow the feet to really let the air in. Salvatore Ferragamo brought in the monochromatic color trend along with the breathable boots, while black lace sock boots came into effect on the Dolce & Gabbana runway, looking totally fabulous.

13. Tying/ Strapping Round the Ankles

It appears that the ankles are a great part of the body to emphasize come spring 2017. Whether we are looking at thick wraparounds in leather or thicker single straps in snakeskin, we see many top designers creating their masterpieces in a way that both shows off skin and covers beautifully, sometime chunky, sometimes dainty, but very often bringing the gaze to that slimmest part of the legs.

House of Holland’s panel play and gingham designs are really cool, the looks made light and springy and entirely perfect with this ankle strapped trend. From the ruffles of Saint Laurent to the buckles of Attico, the wrapping around the ankle trend is as huge as it can get.

14. Laced up and Bound

We get to see a whole lot of spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends, where the shoes are laced up either tightly or showing whatever is underneath, worn with socks and stockings and open backs or simply looking awesome in the sandals or boots sections. Givenchy gives us some intriguing designs to choose from, while it was all about the athletic boots come Dior’s sexy presentations.

As for Versace, it is athleisure at its finest, with a whole lot of fashionable heel options, the colors of the boot laces matching the clothing and handbags perfectly. As for the Western trend that was huge for the spring as well, there are some boots to match it, with J.W. Anderson offering us a range of mid-calf laced up boots in suede and leather.

15. Open Back Footwear

Whether as part of the chunky collections with ankle straps that are nice and thick, or with thin strands around that slender area and riddled with colors and patterns, the open back footwear is totally in and we are not just talking mules either, though those certainly do make an appearance.

Givenchy gives the trend a whole new look really with laced up mules that sport kitten heels and are worn with thick socks underneath. Pretty snazzy, if you ask me.

Party Shoes for the Great Outdoors

‘Tis the season for outdoor parties, which invariably provokes harrowing shoe angst in me. I love the great outdoors. Really I do. They’re a lovely place to sprawl out with a good book and a Nalgene bottle full of mint juleps. But Mother Nature has a long-burning vendetta against me. Try as I may to be prepared for whatever gravel pits, mudslides, and rivers of lava she may throw in my path, I never seem to be wearing the right shoes.

This became painfully clear at a splendiferous wedding that I attended in the Hungarian countryside last month. Guests were treated to abundant wine, whole roast mammals, flitting cherubs, and gamboling fawns. The bride, ever attentive to her friends’ collective fabulosity, even had wooden walkways lain in the fields so people could walk comfortably from place to place. This worked marvelously until the walkways got wet and turned into a network of Slip n’ Slides.

By now I think you can see where this is going. . . two broken sandals and a solicitous Hungarian peasant boy later, I sorely lamented my choice of footwear.

The difficulty with picking shoes for outdoor events is that your footwear must be practical and adaptable to all sorts of terrain. That means no heels unless you’re out to aerate someone’s lawn. Bigger trouble still is that your footwear often winds up looking eminently functional. So here are a few shoe selections that are practical, adaptable and elegant. . . and even a couple with a little altitude built in.
Swoosie, by Kate Spade, will keep your feet firmly planted on terra firma with arch support often lacking in strappy little sandals. Plus, they’re adorned with little golden grape clusters.
And Oona, by Loeffler Randall, would be perfect with those white wide-legged trousers you have. You know, the ones that make your legs look a mile long. Those trousers.
Finally, Jean, by Stuart Weitzman, is the perfect combination of polished and relaxed elements. I usually get a little queasy at the sight of cork heels. But these are so pitch perfect that you don’t have to worry about looking like the sort of leather-textured woman who molests cabana boys with coconut oil.

Now go outside and play!
