Paris Fashion Week turns out some of the most luxurious collections of the year, and the spring ’18 shows this past weekend certainly didn’t disappoint. Menswear labels debuted a bevy of footwear trends to take note of, including the must-have sneakers, sandals and boots.

Read on for the top five shoe trends:

1. Chunky Sneakers
Extra-thick rubber soles give these colorful runners a new, modern feel. The look was seen at labels like Dior Homme, Valentino, Balenciaga and Hermes.
