We Saw These Shoes Everywhere in 2017

When Vogue declared earlier this year that kitten heels were back, it sparked an outcry (seriously) on social media, with one of our own readers even claiming she would rather have a toenail infection than wear a pair. Quite the statement. Yet these aren't the only divisive shoes that made a return in 2017—cowboy boots, flatforms and white shoes also generated some eyebrow-raising debate among even the most stylish of friends this year. But didn't stop them from being everywhere on the street style circuit, as we couldn't get away from the aforementioned footwear trends. Happily, there were also crowd-pleasers, like ballet pumps adorned with ribbons and postbox-red shoes in every style imaginable that were also popular this year. Spoiler: They'll all probably be around for a while in 2018 too, so it's worth shopping them yet.
