The shoes have us pumped, truly, and it creates the impression that many have a moderate way to deal with them which settles on our decision all the harder since regular common sense requires significantly more variety. The best marks on the catwalk have given us a great deal of something to think about and we have just shy of 2 months until the point when the New Year when we can start getting a charge out of the hotness of all they bring to the table. Miu, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and the preferences better be prepared for our most recent shopping binges!
For those with narrow feet and a love for stilettos, this trend is mighty lovely! It’s the sexy look that is made all the sexier with a slingback appeal, something, which Givenchy adds to with a laced up piece in front, covering the upper section of the foot up to the ankle. It’s the Oxford shoe meets the slingback heel. Prabal Gurung comes in with red and orange pointed toe heels with cutouts strategically placed to draw the eyes downwards. The pointed toe looks awesome with stilettos in gold with the extra glitter as seen on Marc Jacobs, something easily seen on its Western style booties as well.
Those Rather Flat Flats
Along with the casual sneakers, the spring/ summer 2016 shoe trends bring a bunch of flat looks for fans of comport and femininity combined. They came in eyelet leather as seen at Derek Lam and as slingback flats at Bottega Veneta with a very comfortable calfskin material. See-through material on the really flat flats appear at Zac Posen, while the future comes to down with shoes you can dance ballet in with big balls on top as seen at Prada.
Possibly the most common look on the runway for the spring and summer is the pair of laced up sneakers that are casual but can certainly be dressed up. Red lacing and a black heel area can be seen at Alexander Wang, giving it an even more casual look. Sneakers are staying strong it seems and we can find slingback styles at Tommy Hilfiger, bootie styles coming in at Ralph Lauren, and slides picking up steam at Calvin Klein, looking so very delicious among the rest.
Gladiators in the Modern Arena
Open toes, stiletto heels and not so laced up gladiator sandals reaching up to the knees can be found on the list of the hottest spring/ summer 2016 shoe trends, including the designs of Paul Andrew with his black and orange looks that could make a man melt with lust. Salvatore Ferragamo has his own designs for gladiator shoes, while Kenzo throws it straight into the modern world and way into the future. Giambattista Valli? Let’s just say you’ll be walking on glittering grass across the meadow.
The square heeled look appears all over the place, on all types of spring 2016 shoes, from the booties to the sandals, the ankle strapped to the slides, the glittering and the rather plain color blocks. Black and white combinations are common enough, as we see on Louis Vuitton, booties in general sporting the blocked heel as seen at Haider Ackermann.
It’s the Wild West come to town at Paco Rabanne, while the short heels of Celine cannot be replaced. Want some pointed toes with that? Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini has that one covered in leather, while things get patchy at Coach. Futuristic silver? No problem at Loewe! We see the block heels appear at Versus or Versace, among many others.
