I’ve been spending much of my time lately combing through the thousands of looks from the spring/summer 2024 runway shoes to inform our big new-season trend report (coming soon!). This lengthy process was made all the more time consuming, as I kept getting distracted by all the pretty shoes I found on my travels. Admittedly, I am a shoe person but one who can contain herself, only backing or buying into the shoe trends I genuinely think have merit and will have a positive impact and push forward my style. I certainly didn’t expect to fall (hard!) for eight of them!
For next year, designers have presented a range of shoe trends, including, but not limited to, a continuation of Mary Janes and styles finished in rich ruby red that echo the season’s defining colour. I’ll admit, 90% of the shoe trends for 2024 aren’t exactly practical either—there are bows, fragile heels, and soft fabrications to eat up. But they are fun, and will bring joy to even your most basic outfits. However, if comfort really is your main concern, rest assured there is a shoe waiting for you.
Ahead, see the eight biggest shoe trends for 2024, including the styles to shop now.
