What woman doesn’t love shoes? Well, get ready because spring 2017 shoe trends give us even more shoe styles to love this season.

Ankle straps and ties

This season the trend of laces, wraps, ties, and straps continues. Expect lots of ankle straps, ties, and buckles. Flat, kitten heels, pumps and even booties showcase everything from intricate wraps and simple ankle straps.


The best shoe trends for Spring 2017: platforms |

Look for platforms (or the “flatform”, the flat platform sandal) in wood, leather and crepe soles. And lots of espadrilles in many varied heights.

Kitten heels

The ladylike kitten heel gets lots of attention this spring. This heel type goes from almost flat to high heels and from simple, basic colors to brights and patterns in pumps, boots and slingbacks.

Athletic Inspired

Spring fashion showcases the athleisure trend in clothing and that continues into footwear too. Look for athletic inspired textures, chic sneakers, laces and running shoe soles to accompany spring’s gym aesthetic.


Don’t put away fall’s booties just yet. Many brands showcase booties in lighter color and textures for spring, many with perforated or using woven leather. Pair with jeans, pants and even floral dresses for a bit of an edge.

Embroidery and embellishments

Which shoes are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

Well they are all just great if you have a normal foot! I wear an 11 4AAAA and it isn’t easy finding these shoes in my size. I have struggled for years trying to find stylish and comfortable shoes. I usually end up with Noat, Munroe, or sometimes I get lucky with Naturalizer. If anyone else out there has this issue and has found any brands of footwear for hard to fit feet, please share! Thank you!

Did you check my page on arch support shoes? Lots of helpful comments there!

I think I am fine with my new black peeptoe shoes and my sneakers but who knows?
First I have to get my cards back.

Good luck with that!

5 Elaine Lascher

I was shopping for some pointy toe flats for this season and found a comfortable pair that incorporated both metallic and embellished trends. I also purchased a pair of Superga slip on sneakers that I’m wearing a lot for casual days. My last shoe purchase for this season will likely be a pair of kitten heels. I have a wedding to attend in June. As soon as I buy the dress I’ll start looking for shoes. Oh, I forgot one! I bought a pair of Fly London casual sandals on line in blue. Waiting for them to arrive. All of these shoes were on sale.
