The spring/summer 2023 runway shows have given us a fresh set of collections and upcoming trends to digest. In our spring/summer 2023 fashion trend report, we discussed some of the most noteworthy things to have your eye on for the upcoming season. Among them, you’ll find sweet, pretty things and all things sheer. Of course, there were also some fresh, unexpected trends we’re betting on big, including the return of skinny pants and intentionally imperfect pieces.
The shoe space showed a similar balance. In part, we saw fall/winter 2022 trends such as Mary Janes and ballet flats tweaked for the new season—meaning you can rest assured that those buys will last long beyond the spring. On the other side of the spectrum, hyper-new styles like the reimagined pumps at Loewe and the inventive, high-concept heels at Dries Van Noten will redefine how people accessorize in 2023. Ahead are the eight biggest spring 2023 shoe trends to commit to memory.
