6 Shoe Trends We Keep Seeing on the Front Row at Fashion Week

Shoes have the power to make or break an outfit, which explains why showgoers place so much focus on their footwear during Fashion Week. Not only do they need to be somewhat comfortable (even if you're being chauffeured between venues, you still rack up significant numbers in your step counter), but of course, they need to be stylish.

Instead of adhering to the season's predetermined trends, however, the front row elite have been making waves on the shoe circuit themselves with their choice of cool footwear. From trainers and boots to the detail with Alexa Chung's seal of approval, keep scrolling to see the top six shoe street style trends that have defined Fashion Month thus far.

CRYSTAL STRAPS

Rhinestones were a key trend for party season 2019, but the detail is sticking around for spring 2020 by way of shoes. Wear them with modest dresses or with jeans and a trench coat for chic appeal.

PADDED MULES

Mules have long been on the style agenda, but thanks to Bottega Veneta, they've undergone a puffy update with its quilted, interwoven design. Now, the look is starting to crop up on the high street, too.

It's the trend that's going nowhere. Track-sole boots are still proving a firm favourite among the style set, who have been wearing them with everything from oversized suiting to mini dresses.

SCULPTURAL HEELS

Thanks to the likes of Cult Gaia and Jacquemus, humble heels have undergone a glow-up, with sculptural heels proving to be fashion girls' go-to. Wear with a printed dress for maximum impact.

TWO-TONED BOOTS

One of the coolest throwback trends we've seen in a while is '60s-style two-toned boots. And they've been given a new lease of life thanks to Wandler, whose Isa boots are one of the most-worn items of Fashion Month.

Flatforms were a firm fixture on the spring/summer 2020 runways in sandal form. And now, seems the vibe has transcended to the realm of trainers too, with white styles proving to be the elevated sneaker of choice.
