The change in seasons brings the desire to try new styles. Summer is all about trendy swimsuits and breezy sundresses. At the first signs that autumn is here, the fall boots or coats are best. After putting on snow boots and puffers, think spring and lightweight jackets with toe or ankle-baring footwear. The best spring 2023 shoe trends for those who are always looking ahead are c-hi-c.

Don’t worry: You can still wear the platforms, Mary Janes and chunky loafers that you love right now, but lovely ballet flats with a more literal en-pointe twist will be in your next season wardrobe.

Minimalist silhouettes with wider peep toe mules are a great option if you’re a fan of Y2K fashion. You can also replace your cold-weather lug sole boots with these. You will find a wide range of chunky shapes including block heels, flatforms and wedges. You’ll also find cagey designs like fisherman sandals, and the charmingly whimsical return to jellies. Continue scrolling to see a more detailed breakdown of the shoes that will be cult next season.

Proenza Schouler and Fendi proved that the era of chunky shoes is not over. There are many styles to choose from, including a wedge, flatform or block heel.

Good angle

Balenciaga’s knife edge heels have been a market leader. Others are also following the angled heel trend. Bottega Veneta’s geo wedges, Proenza Schouler bubble platforms and mules, Ferrgamao super-strappy sandals, are just a few examples.

Get ready to buckle up

Mary Janes have been a cult favorite of late and are still in fashion for spring. Some versions are better than others. Sandy Liang and Coach showed both classic and twee versions, with the latter opting to wear iconic styling with socks. Prada introduced a cowboy boot hybrid while Versace offered a heavier version that will help you ground your punk or grunge looks.

Bad Girls Club

The rebellious spirit of fall was evident in many collections, from S&M to punk. Think about juxtaposition when styling to get your rebel fix. A sleek, patent platform looks great with an occasion mini. But, brogues and chain-laced boots are stylish alternatives to all types of dresses and skirts.

Ballet Masters

Flat ballet shoes are a trend that is not to be ignored. Designers like Simone Rocha, however, took inspiration from the prima ballerina uniform by introducing satin silhouettes that were flat and heeled, with ribbon-inspired straps and elasticized slippers.

Don’t Be Afraid To Go

The minimalist sandal is timeless, just like ballet flats. Take inspiration from Maryam Nassir Zdeh, Altuzarra and Khaite to refresh your spring 2023 collection. You can also opt for a heeled look like Rejina Pyo and The Row.

Comfort Plus

Comfort-first footwear is a necessity these days. Jil Sander and Simone Rocha make the case for orthotic chic with thicker, more supportive soles that have a little bit of extra. This is still a fashionable trend. Metal buckles, graphic overlays and sparkly embellishments are all possible.

Cagey Girls

This trend has been popular for the past few seasons. Spring 2023 will bring a new era in fisherman sandals. They can be found at Bottega Veneta, Erdem, and JW Anderson, as well as chunkier versions at Gabriela Hearst or the ultimate Y2K version, as seen at Coach.
