The Top 5 Shoe Trends for Spring 2017 From Fashion Week

With New York Fashion Week wrapping up, we’re taking a look at some of the most exciting shoe trends that graced the runways. Designers embraced a sophisticated palette this season and used their footwear collections to make the clothes feel less pretty-pretty, more fresh: think clunky shapes or easy slip-on mules.

Read on for the top spring ’17 shoe trends:

Mega Platforms
Get ready to start training your calves. The season’s clunky platforms — which had a punk feel with metal studs or spotted prints — were seen at Proenza Schouler, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc Jacobs and Coach.

White Sneakers
The minimal look is here to stay. Box-fresh sneakers were offered in crisp-white colorways at Tommy Hilfiger, Band of Outsiders and Lacoste.

Ladylike Sandals
Elegance is in again. After seasons of what’s “cool,” there was a return to more feminine finishes at Monique Lhuillier, Tory Burch and Jonathan Simkhai.

Kitschy Details
Only for the confident. Whimsical details — such as fruit appliqués, feathers or animal motifs — were applied to the shoes at Altuzarra, Thom Browne and Libertine.

Easy Mules
Call it the style that just won’t quit. Easy slip-on-and-go mules — either with closed or open toes — were seen at Thakoon, Tory Burch and Brock Collection.
