15 On Trend Fruit-Themed Shoes for Spring

Carmen Miranda would definitely approve of spring’s latest shoe trend: colorful fruit designs.

From bananas to cherries, the playful motif makes a striking statement on styles such as heels, flats, rainboots, sandals and sneakers. Designers have interpreted the trend with a striking mix of prints, appliqués, ornaments and even novelty heel shapes.

Charlotte Olympia serves up a veritable fruit cocktail with this colorful peep-toe flat, detailed with a mix of leather and suede appliqués including a banana, watermelon, strawberry and pineapple.
