Straight-From-The-Runway Women Shoe Trends

We enjoy discussing outfits on the runway, but let’s not forget about the shoes.

After all, shoes spice up our outfits — and the sky’s the limit when it comes to the trendy styles available on the scene.

No matter your heel-height taste, vibrant hues and luxury accessories are this year’s shoe fashion non-negotiables. Here’s a quick overview of the trendiest shoes of 2022:

  • sky-high platforms: looks like this trend is here to stay;
  • sporty sandals: comfort still reigns king in 2022;
  • gladiator sandals: yes, criss-crossing lace-ups are in again;
    architectural, avant-garde, and often absurd heels: a jaw-dropping nod to everyone’s
  • post-lockdown party-readiness;
  • ballet flats: they are making a serious comeback, too.

Check out the selection we’ve rounded up for you below and find the best items in the Bronx shoes section.

1. Sky-High Platforms

Last year, platform shoes were just beginning to take the fashion world by storm. This season, sky-high platforms are dominating the catwalks and were even noticed on Carrie Bradshaw in ‘And Just Like That.’ It can only mean that the trend is going to expand. So, stomping into spring with an extra height from platform heels, sandals, and boots would be a trendy choice!

2. Sporty Sandals

Everyone’s appeal for sporty sandals is growing stronger every day. It’s only natural because they are both practical and trendy. Leopard, pastel, candy-colored… Stick with your favorite style of comfy sandals and embrace the comfort-is-king attitude. If you’re among those fashionistas who can’t stand platforms or sporty sandals, you can always opt for ballet flats or stylish gladiator sandals.

3. Gladiator Sandals

Remember the late 2000s when those calf-climbing babies stole all the limelight? Well, looks like it’s all coming back this season, spoiling us for choice with a treasure trove of gladiator styles. We saw gladiators on 2022’s runway, boasting tons of exciting details like extravagant metallics or rock-n-roll-ish accessories. With that said, we bet you love the idea of looking like a Greek goddess this summer.

4. Avant-Garde Heels

These honeys were the talk of the town during this season’s shows. We’re sure you’ve already seen Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe extra detailed stilettos, featuring heels inspired by various household products. Some heels were in the form of cracked eggs, while others took the shape of upside-down roses, soap bars, and birthday candles. Pure whimsy!

5. Ballet Flats

Adorned with satins, lace-up straps, and similar feminine details, ballet flats are making a comeback in 2022. Comfy and timeless, ballet pumps go with almost any outfit. You might dislike the idea of having to tie your shoes up in the morning. But the resulting look is definitely worth the effort.

Conclusion: Enjoy Freedom of Choice

The higher the heel, the closer to heaven, they say. Looks like this saying is particularly about the trendy footwear of 2022. If you’re not very much into getting closer to heaven, there’s an array of comfy-and-trendy alternatives for you.
