Metallics are great for summer, even though you may associate them with winter sparkle. Metallic shoes are a great way to instantly update your look by reflecting the sun’s rays. Treat your feet to some season sparkle with shimmery slip-ons and pretty embellished pumps. Fendi and Max Mara were just a few of the brands that showed models their feet at the spring/summer 2022 shows.


Yes. Yes, you did read that right. Gladiator sandals have made a comeback. Even though they haven’t gone out of fashion, this design is still a popular summer trend. This shoe trend is back on the runway, and maybe in your closet. We saw many variations of the multi-strap design for summer 2022. There are many options, from statement-making knee-high models to more translatable ankle straps. The likes of Alberta Ferretti and Paco Rabanne, Ports 1961, and Dior Chloe were able to show off stand-out designs.


The Mary Jane is a classic style that has been around for a while, but it’s always in fashion. It is distinguished by its narrow, rounded toe, at least one strap across the feet, and a block heel. For summer 2022, the Mary Jane has been reinvented on the runways. The new Mary Jane retains its doll-like appearance and features both high and low block heels. They are available in a variety of materials, including leather, velvet, and satin.


White shoes and boots are a great way to look spring-ready. White shoes and boots can be worn in a variety of silhouettes, including chic ankle boots, statement-heeled sandals and the most elegant trainers. White shoes come with a lot of responsibility so be sure to learn how you can clean them.


This trend is perfect for anyone who loves a retro ’90s-inspired anklet. Ankle detailing is great for pairing with short dresses and cropped jeans. Ankle embellishment was big on the runway, with everything from statement straps to chains and even chain detailing. Designers were really focusing on details to make their summer shoes stand out, from Moschino to Armani to Tom Ford.


Fashion is obsessed with quilting, a major trend that has been observed across all industries. Quilting is a staple of fashion, and designers are guaranteed to have quilted everything from coats to handbags, and everything in between. For a more creative take on the season’s footwear, be sure to look for thicker, fuller straps with knots, twists, and quilt detailing. For budget-friendly pieces, shop the trend through direct-to-market brands. This will let you have fun with the style without spending a fortune.


Designers must predict consumer moods six months before the season begins in order to plan their runway shows. Loewe and Balmain opted for this next trend.

As a way to up-style heels, sculptural stilettos were created using geometric shapes and chains. Because of its unique design, this trend can be difficult to replicate for brands. However, look out for unusual embellishments and contrasting block colors for your heels.


In recent seasons, clogs have been gaining popularity in fashion. The clog’s easy-to-wear and comfortable nature combined with Crocs, the leading clog brand (teaming up alongside everyone from Christopher Kane, Balenciaga), make them a strong contender for a place in your capsule wardrobe. This chunky, round-fronted shoe style was seen at Saint Laurent, Versace, and Balenciaga. It’s great for pairing with wide-leg jeans, or linen trousers to create a casual look. We don’t recommend pairing this with dresses, as it is a heavy silhouette.


The wedge is making a welcome return to runways for those who struggle to wear heels but still want to be able to walk in them. It was seen at Versace, Acne, and Fendi. However, the wedge took on a more narrow and sculptural silhouette than usual, although the new slimmed down wedge is now available in ready-to-wear. You can still expect chunkier versions.

Because the wedge is higher than heels, it offers more balance. This makes it a great training ground for anyone who wants to improve their heel game. Block color options are available alongside the classic wooden and raffia designs that are a summer staple.


Although we might be ready for dressing up again, if you aren’t already feeling your best loungewear look, this shoe trend is worth considering. It will also allow you to wear the style in the first half of fall. Fendi and Altuzarra, as well as Miu Miu, have included cozy elements in their collections despite the return to skyscraper heels. Faux fur and shearling made an unexpected appearance in footwear. They were used on the shoe’s exteriors as well as in the inner lining. This allows you to feel like your favorite slippers, while still being at the forefront fashion.


Designers opted for new fabrications to rekindle shoppers’ love of fashion, displaying their designs on runways in rubberized boots and jelly-like sandals. This look was fun, whether you were preparing for the festival season with rubber boots or a beach vacation in bright rubberized sandals.


We are approaching the end of summer, and the heights of fall, and the ’90s still reigns supreme in street style and on the runway. Lace-up boots are certainly having a fashion moment. The lace-up boot, which is seen at Valentino and Louis Vuitton and adds an androgynous touch to the most feminine of looks, is the most directional way of re-spin floral mini dresses.
