We’ve kept a close eye, both on and off the runway, of Spring 2017’s global runways. We already checked out the best runway shoes from New York Fashion Week Spring 2017, and now that London, Milan and Paris are behind us, we had a chance to take an in-depth look at all of Spring 2017’s footwear styles to help determine the biggest emerging shoe trends.

The runways were full of comfortable, wearable styles (with a few exceptions, of course!) like sneakers and minimalist sandals. You’ll also notice the return of the needle-thin stiletto, a ton of embellished mules and slides (and when given the chance, they will be your next go-to!) and much more. Here’s what you can expect!

Sneakers

From Céline to Anya Hindmarch, designers continue to show love to one of the most wearable sneakers on the footwear market!

Mega Platforms

Designers are kicking things up a notch (literally!) with elevated flatforms and platforms, making this silhouette a much more daring option than the beloved sneaker.

Minimalist Sandals

These ladylike sandals featured on the runways of Oscar de la Renta and Tory Burch all shed light to the idea that elegant sandals are totally acceptable to wear even on the most special occasions.

Embellished Mules and Slides

Moving to the opposite end of the spectrum, several designers capitalized on the growing popularity of mules and slides. Ever since the cult craze of the Gucci Princetown loafer, many designers are beginning to incorporate this backless heel into their Spring 2017 lineups.

The Unconventional

What’s Fashion Week without a few eyebrow raising styles?! Just when we’ve thought you’ve seen it all, Christoper Kane created “glamorous” crocs, Gucci created a flatform sandal that comes apart and easily becomes a ballet flat and Balenciaga sent spandex thigh-high boots down the runway. These styles were definitely unconventional to say the least.

I have a feeling that Saint Laurent heel is going to be a hit!

The Gucci® “flatform” shoes that turn into ballet flats remind me of the richly embroidered brocade shoes that empresses, concubines and nobles ladies with bound feet would’ve worn in Qing, Ming or Yuan Dynasty China. There’s something quite perverse about how (Alessandro) Michele designed a modern shoe after one that literally required you to deform your feet in order to wear them. Considering how many women (and some men) damage their feet so they can fit into fashionable shoes, it’s a pretty apt design reference.
