Easily one of the most coveted shoes of the past year, and, amazingly, the streak has continued. After seeing pregnant Kim K prance around in her strappy stilettos and then Georgia May jagger in her Aquazzura’s everyone has been after these beauties. Whether they are laced or literally caged they add an effortlessly chic touch to any outfit, from boyfriend jeans to summer dresses.
The Gladiator sandal had a brief stint back in 2009/10, but it is back with full force. The lace-up shoe, as shown with the previous trend, is in high demand and on trend for this upcoming spring/summer. This is where the (very seasonal) gladiator sandal comes in. From Loeffler Randall to Topshop this piece is receiving immense attention and design variation, and it will be fun to see where it goes.
The elevated espadrille
Last summer the espadrille made a huge splash. It has historically been around and has been a staple for many shoppers, but now designers are taking it to another level. By incorporating different designs, fabrics and textures big fashion houses have stepped up the game. This classic shoe/sandal will never go out of style but enjoy the fun variations while they last.
