The good weather will come soon to stay and with it, the suffered change of wardrobe and by extension of shoemaker. The latest trends in footwear They make a great commitment to comfort, leaving behind the vertigo heels and insufferable lasts to give way to a versatile footwear, which can be worn with almost any style, of quality, but above all comfortable, or at least in most occasions .
In this season spring / summer 2021 We found some novelties in shoe store, but in general, there are not too many additions. As in all fashion, the 90s aesthetic recovering great classics such as clogs and the dancers, which this season adapt to the foot as if it were a second skin. Sandals go in extremes: or ‘extra flat’ or with a platform and in both cases with all kinds of decorations: velcro, jewelery, padding. The heel will also be with the reign of the famosos ‘kitten heels’, low and narrow heels that will coexist with others with a square toe. And as always, sneakers, yes, the reign of the white color says goodbye to give way to sports full of color, in pastel tones and above all, neutral to combine both with a suit, as with a dress or jeans.
It is probably, after sandals, the most popular footwear of the spring season. This season acquires an extra femininity with designs reminiscent of the classic ‘Mary Janes’ with a strap on the instep. Celine, Dior O Simone Rocha, are some of the luxury firms that have incorporated them into their proposals for this spring / summer 2021 where we will find them in countless designs. In leather or nylon they will be good options, such as those proposed Pretty Ballerinas, one of the dancers’ firms ‘made in Spain’ by excellence.
They have been trying for several seasons and perhaps becoming a niche trend that triumphs among fashion experts, but it seems that this spring they are coming stronger than ever. Salvaged from the 90’s, there are traditional options in leather, suede and wood with rivets seen as proposed Hermes O Stella McCartney, also in Brownie O Birkenstock; and others more innovative with adapted versions such as the colorful ones of Crocs.
This type of high-heeled shoe, which already triumphed in the autumn / winter season, also returns with good weather, this time with designs with lots of color and in infinite possibilities, always as the common nexus of maintaining a high heel medium / low (between 5 and 7cm). Undercut, pointed, with strips, studs, chains, pearls as we saw on the catwalk of Prada, Miu Miu O Valentino. In Zara, Mango or Uterqüe, among others, we find all kinds of models and versions with this type of heel.
Square toe sandals
If there are some high-heeled sandals that will stand out from the rest this spring, yes in the ‘kitten heels’ version (with low and comfortable heel), those are the square toe sandals or ‘square’. They have been installed in summer shoemakers for several seasons and this year will be the exception. Minimalist and with an elegant air, the quilts of Bottega Veneta they are an icon. In the spring collection of Uterqüe We find a wide variety of square toe sandals that adapt to almost all proposals.
With straps of almost all types, box flaps, with buckles, type ‘flip-flop’ … There is no doubt that it is the star footwear season after season. To go to the office, the beach or go out to eat, this spring / summer the flat sandals What else we will see are divided between those that close with velcro and those that opt for minimalism with few strips, but made of quality leather. Here artisan signatures are imposed with designs made like those of Altuzarra O Ibizas Heritage with proposals that invite you to jump straight into the summer.
Also known as ‘flatforms’These sandals are somewhat flat although with several centimeters in height thanks to the platform, they will help to gain centimeters without giving up the comfort of a flat shoe. Versace or Prada incorporated them into their proposals for the next season in different versions. In brands like Toni Pons We find different versions of platforms for the summer that coexist with the classic wedges.
The reign of white sneakers gives way to models with touches of color that go from fluorine tones to other more sophisticated and versatile pastel colors. It is the comfort footwear par excellence, the key to getting the most out of them will be to bet on versatile and easy to combine sports shoes with neutral tones and minimalist designs such as those proposed by the Spanish firm Hoff or those that we find in the proposals for this spring of Bimba & Lola.
