Spring shoes have become our new fashion focus.
We’re looking ahead to next season’s styles and dreaming of longer, warmer days where our toes are free and our ankles feel the air again.
From office shoes to high heels, trainers to loafers, SS14’s footwear has got a whole lot edgier – think angular lines, buckles, zips, colour-popping prints and jellies featuring a mix of ankle straps, low-rise fits and chunky soles.
Florals have been replaced with animal prints and pastel shades with neon brights meaning you should clear some space for a kaleidoscope of colour in your shoe closet.
Metallics are a big hit this season. And LK Bennett never miss a shoe trick. They’ve taken chunky straps that are totally in vogue, dipped them in a chic silver hue and crafted them into one pair of holiday must-have shoes.
Trainers are everywhere, and we mean everywhere, this season. We’re still swooning over Chanel’s super-cool tweed sneakers from fashion month. But whilst those have gone firmly on our wishlist, here’s a pair you can snap up now (for a fraction of the price, you’ll be pleased to know).
Make way in your shoe closet for a shining pair of metallic shoes. They’ll instantly update an outfit giving you a hit of effortless glamour. Plus French Connection’s silver stilettos can double up for both day and night. The perfect pair? We think so.
Stand out in a pair of eye-catching shoes by spending a fraction over £100 on these utterly unique block heels by Nine West. If you’re not already in love with the cool circle straps, take a closer look at the pink and orange colour clash.
Peter Pilotto re-ignited our love affair with florals this season, but not the pretty ditsy kind, the edgy graphic type to make a fierce fashion statement. Grab your own piece of the cool new flowery trend with MSGM’s lemon-led heels.
The metal toecap is hot for SS14. We’ve seen them on the stylistas hitting fashion month and now they’ve cropped up on the high street. Don’t let them slip under the radar, they’re one seriously hot fashion buy.
By mixing lime sorbet with dove grey Reiss has come up with a beautifully subtle colour marriage for SS14. Plus the deep-dipped side makes the high street shoes feel more runway than sale rail. Stunning.
Animal print is making waves in spring. Forget tiny kitsch florals and solid stripes, it’s all about bold leopards, snakes and giraffes this season. And for £32, you can’t go wrong with these standout flats from Next.
If high-fashion shoes are your thing, Jimmy Choo’s iridescent bronze stilettos will have you stealing the spotlight. The sky-high heels reflect the light, mirroring one of fashion month’s hottest trends.
If you want flats with attitude, Tabitha Simmons is the designer you need to seek out. These already blogger-coveted flats were seen on Susie Bubble during Fashion Month meaning they’ve had the seal of fashion approval, and now they’re firmly on our want list too.
Still going strong, the monochrome trend isn’t departing any time soon. & Other Stories have updated their shoe drop to include these gorgeous black and white striped flats complete with cool plastic detailing. Perfect for work or play.
Flatforms are still surfacing this season and we’re coveting Fendi’s PVC wedges. Is it the fact the soles are layered like a cake? Maybe. Either way we know they’re heading our way in the post in time for spring…
Although peep and open toes are still classic spring staples, closed toe sandals are leading the way this season. See By Chloe is leading by example with these sleek front-pointed sandals in honey, ivory and black.
High street giant Zara are bringing buckles straight from their AW13 boot collection and taking them straight into their summer drop. If you can’t bear to part from your trusty ankle grazers, these could bridge the gap perfectly.
If you haven’t already got your hands on a pair of 90s trainers by now, where have you been? Nike Air’s had their fashion moment last summer and they’re coming back in an even bigger way so don’t get left behind…
Make way for the fresh take on the LBS (little black stilettos). Yes, the classic black court that goes with everything has been updated with two translucent panels giving Kurt Geiger’s glossy pair a high-end finish.
Similar to Lanvin’s flat creations, Zara’s offering up a beautiful pair of high-fashion inspired strappy shoes for SS14. The shiny ankle strap and buttery soft beige shade gives this pair the luxe edge we love.
