March 2, 2023

In the footwear design of the major fashion weeks of Spring/Summer 2023, you can find retro style shoes such as Mary-Janes and ballet flats comeback as one of the season’s biggest shoe trends. Meanwhile, platform shoes full of rebellion are transformed into casual footwear such as sandals and slippers in this season. Designers used different materials including metallic materials, clogs, and multi-layered laces to achieve the design features of the shoes on the Spring/Summer 2023 runway. Let’s take a look at a few fashion trends in footwear this season.


Ballet Flats

Ballet flats were seen everywhere for Spring/Summer 2023 fashion shows.


The appeal of preppy attire has yet to fade in 2023. The latest twist in this season takes the classic silhouette up a notch, sometimes even literally with chunky soles and sky-high heels.


The multi-layered lace-up shoes full of sexy charm are also the highlight of this season. Designers have given this style a chic upgrade.

Pointed Toe

Take this season’s other shoe trends, such as ballet flats, western boots, or lace-up styles, and narrow it down further to pointed-toe options for footwear that is truly on-point.


From Winter fashion to Spring trends, metallic shoes are all about standing out.


Platform shoes stand firm on the runway, and have even evolved into different shapes. Some brands have launched exaggerated platform shoes, which combine contemporary aesthetics with retro design, giving people a strong visual impact.
