Fashion in 2020 seemed virtually stand-still for apparent reasons.
Luckily, we humans don’t lose hope and hope is what keeps us going.
Hopefully, this New Year 2021 will allow us to get out and bask in the sun and enjoy life as best as we can.
Fashion as like many other things is something that doesn’t need to be sacrificed. Footwear is no exception.
We predict that high heels will be much less dominant and the more comfy flip-flops, flats, platform, and cozy slippers and sneakers will reign and set the trends in fashion shoes in 2021.
Here are six fashion shoe trends in 2021 that are straight off the runway and will keep you on your toes!
Yes, the Slippers
Whether you like it or not, we may have to start the year staying at home.
But that doesn’t mean your feet need to be slipped into some ugly soles. You can still look pretty with slippers that are chic and fashionable.
What’s great is that these can be worn outside too, giving you the comfy feel of the slides at the same time.
This pair of Nude Mink Slides from Ralph & Russo can be quite irresistible offering the bold fashion statement as well as comfort.
Sneakers have been one of the types of shoes that, for years, have stood strong in the fashion world.
It brings comfort with styles and springs a fun and sporty feel at the same time.
To stay ahead in the competition, manufacturers of sneaker footwear mix hybrid footwear silhouettes with intriguing designs and offers unique features and benefits, and functions.
Streetwear fans love them as it allows them to stay in style as well as comfort.
Prominent industry-leading brands like Nike and Heron Preston fuse two great models like the Air Max 95 and Air Max 720 into an amazing quality hybrid model.
Bring back the sexiness, the Gladiators
Fashion reemerges from the past time to time. And one such is the iconic ancient gladiator look on footwear.
Specially adorned during the summer vibes, the pretty tassels on the gladiator straps are probably one of the most sought-after fashion trends this 2021.
Add sex-appeal to your legs and fly like a butterfly on the summer-beaches.
Fashion doesn’t need to stay on the catwalk arenas, it can be as impressive and super-fashionable on your feet as well.
The gladiator features leather ribbons wrapped around your legs on platform wooden soles, sometimes on soft soles.
Like the gladiators – the flatforms too are from ancient times, yet they bring fashion to modern times. Flatforms were seriously popular back in the 70s, with their high-boosted soles.
They bring the comfort and the sporty look.
What’s unique about them is their enhanced height which girls crave to have, empowering self-esteem.
Flatforms come in plenty of choices; from wedge sandal type to open-toe casual ankle-strapped style, making the wearer look chic.
You may be saying, “Seriously?”
How on earth can clogs be on the fashion shoe list?
Yes, I get your point.
But even though clogs are known to be worn by nurses or at times by some aunts or grannies, designers like Salvatore Ferragamo and Lanvin have upped the fashion game quite a lot.
And we’ve seen them worn by pretty models on fall runaways.
Take Hermès’ clogs for an example. They have become the ‘status clog in town’.
Their spring 2021 show proved that yes! clogs too can be worn to send fashion statements boldly.
These clogs by Hermès are plump, wavy, and embroidered with rivets, gems, and metals along the seam between the sole and the upper.
Wedge with style
Fashion should be for everyone and everywhere.
What I mean by everyone is that it should also be for people who have flat-foot problems.
This Dansko Sandra Mary Jane Wedge brings the solution!
With excellent arch support and removable insoles, these wedges from Dansko could be a great choice when it comes to fighting overpronation that is commonly associated with flat-footedness.
Podiatrist suggests that the slight heel lift can help to keep your foot in a more pleasant and stable position.
This wedge could be a great choice for those looking for walking shoes for flat feet.
Fashion was the last thing on mind when you could barely get out of home last year due to unavoidable reasons.
But like always, we hope for a fresh new start in a new year.
The above are some of the fashion shoe trends that you should be looking forward to investing in this year.
These choices of fashionable shoes for this spring-summer of 2021 should give you a delightful, comfortable, fashionable-happy-foot-journey along with styles and fashion you’ve always wanted to carry.
