The Craziest Spring ’20 Shoes Spotted on the Runway at NYFW

New York Fashion Week has officially come to an end, and this season, brands brought back major buzz to the event that was once dubbed as insignificant to the industry. Thanks to inclusive messaging, an ambitious young crop of designers and inventive product, NYFW could not be ignored.

FN recorded the most jaw-dropping, unique shoes of New York Fashion Week’s spring ’20 season.

To start, Tibi made noise with its spring shoes that included platforms in shades of gray and white with pops of color seen in pea soup greens and apricots. “The collection in general was about merging risk and practicality. And doing things that make you feel modern and alive —wearing things that make you feel new,” said designer Amy Smilovic. “We really started with the shoes. The platform feels important and interesting. And the great thing about a platform is you walk in it as if it’s a flat.”

Tevas and Teva-inspired silhouettes popped on the runway on more than one occasion. The roster included Gypsy Sport, Jonathan Cohen, Claudia Li and Anna Sui, but it was Gypsy Sport who took the style to new heights — literally.
