Looking to the bright future of fashion and trying to find out the best and the hottest for the new season, we come to the range of spring/ summer 2015 shoe trends, which also appeared to be more than just diverse and even more than versatile, colorful and exceptional. What made them unique and special this time was the range of design solutions that were applied in order to renovate the classic forms and shapes and to bring out something fresh and exquisite out of them. Thus, here we are with the total summing list of those spring 2015 shoe trends, which were formed with especially a big number of similar design patterns and shapes used by the most popular fashion designers and houses.
Sophisticated and Unusual Shoe Designs
This is the first trend we would like to speak about, especially focusing on the meticulous and quite elaborately worked out shoes, coming with a whole range of various design details like sequins, beads, lace elements, transparency plays and much more. The color combinations were also noteworthy, exemplified with both monochrome and sassy looks like in case of all-black shoes, and with color combinations including shades like red, black, and golden. Thus this was the thing in case of the all-glittery Christian Siriano shoes, the textures mosaic images by Custo Barcelona, the vintage plus boho inspired looks from Dolce & Gabbana, and much more. The ancient-inspired shoes from Fausto Puglisi, the whimsical butterfly-winged shoes of Lie Sang Bong, Louis Vuitton’s killer shoes, the edgy wooden platform shoes of Rick Owens, Marni’s shoes with imaginative heels and the woven and multi-colored options from Alexander Wang are no less striking.
Flatforms/ Platform Flats
Platform shoes form the following noteworthy shoe trend for spring we would like to speak about, especially concentrating on the super many ways of combining different design details with these shapes. The best examples can be Roberto Cavalli’s bright and beautiful interpretations, Sportmax’s black with milky white sandals, Thakoon’s comfy and chic designs, the soft and comfy options from Dries Van Noten, the boho inspired looks from Michael Kors, as well as the platform shoes from Creatures of the Wind, and many others.
Whether they're tied up around the ankle and even the calf, we're already predicting that statement-making lace-up sandals will be any fashion girl's must-have footwear come Summer.Just like in case of the new season’s garments, shoes also prove to have lacing design details as a separate and quite big fashion trend this time. Especially creative are the interpretations of this trend from such big names as Givenchy, Stella McCartney, where we adored the creamy lacing used for the shimmery golden wedges, Rodarte with its lace-up thigh-high boots, Alexander McQueen that stunned with the mysterious and cool lace-up shoes, as well as Herve Leger by Max Azria completing the circle of powerful interpretations.
Color block Shoes
Two tones sometimes even three are better than one. That was the lesson with the colorblock sandals, ankle-straps, and slides that hit the runway.
Shoes with Bow Ties
Just another super cute and girly detail that can be added to shoes in order to accentuate the femininity once more is the bow tie, which despite being such a small detail can make a whole lot difference in juicing up one’s look. We especially loved the monochrome black leather bow-detailed shoes from Cedric Charlier, Miu Miu’s white and delicate bows tied over a creamy cappuccino background, No 21’s satin bow ties created with shades like emerald green, Christian Louboutin’s shimmery silver flats with interesting cuts, and the glamorous golden with black combos from Saint Laurent.
Leather can’t be left out from the list of glamorous and chic materials, when it comes to the most timeless and foolproof elegant shoe designs. When speaking about the trendiest spring 2015 shoes we just can’t but mention those colorful and at times shimmery flat leather sandals encompassing shades like electric blue from Emporio Armani, Lacoste’s camel leather sandals and the all-leather shoes from Givenchy.
T-straps are probably the logical continuation of the multi-strap and ankle-strap shoe trends, this time representing another classy and quite sumptuous range of designs, again coming with the irreplaceable touch of renovated glam. The best exemplars for inspiration may be found among J. Mendel’s pointy toe T-straps with very many color variations, the multiplied looks from Fendi accompanied with double ankle straps as well, and the colorful and classic T-strap shoes from Arden Woh.
Can we ever do in the warm season without flats? They always form a separate and chic shoe trend for the spring/summer season and this year is no exception. Flats get creative makeovers and look totally innovative and imaginative this spring. You’ll especially love the pointy-toe flats of Balenciaga, Carven’s cutout flats, Peter Som’s metallic fringed flat sandals, Valentino’s gladiator flats, Stella Jean’s flat Oxford shoes, Michael Kors’ classic pointy-toe flats, Victoria Beckham’s cowboy-inspired flat shoes, Chanel’s metallic Oxfords, Burberry’s colorful flat sandals and others.
