Nothing drives the January blues away like calculated madness, and this season we’re banking on a sensual injection. Think fishnet-esque waders at Saint Laurent and Bally, but we are also eyeing 100% on noble and transparent Valentino platforms and crystal-encrusted Chanel pumps.

Good morning! Fashion shares the footwear trends that will give your step a boost in 2023:

Toe ring temptation


A loving reminder of the new jewelry trend of the 2000s, toe rings are making a comeback for Spring/Summer 2023, incorporated into shoe styles by brands like AWAKE Mode, Stella McCartney and Lanvin.

Raise the bar

Chanel SS23

Balletcore babes – this one’s for you. Miu Miu flats super fans will be delighted to hear that ballerina flats are still completely In tip. Invest in shimmering versions from Chanel for a touch of pizzazz or pumps from Tory Burch for a super flattering tapered line.

corner of heaven

Fendi SS23

Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Proenza Schouler all agree – chunky, durable wedges are on the SS23 agenda. We’re 100% into it (and not just ankle support).

Full on platforms

Hermes SS23

Fancy a little getaway? The essential shoe you need on your to-do list is a heavy platform according to Jonathan Simkhai, Ulla Johnson, and Hermès who favored a cool midless structure.

Clear as day

Valentino SS23

Park the nude dress for a moment, we’re all about its playful cousin, the nude shoe. See-through shoes have been around for a little while now (Amina Muaddi, we bow), and this season we’re rocking in Valentino’s see-through high-tops as well as Born In Exile’s tinted slingbacks.

The back of the net

Bally SS23

Lattices, mesh and nets are all the rage at Chanel and Stella McCartney, where patent toe cap styles and mesh heels were on display respectively. For maximum impact, check out the mesh waders from Bally and Saint Laurent. Catch of the day, right?

rebirth bling

Factory AZ SS23

Apparently, the festive season is continuing well into the new season with dazzling, crystal-encrusted designs taking center stage on the SS23 runways. Courrèges, AZ Factory and Chanel all know what’s going on. We totally approve.

Mary-Jane Moment

Christian Dior SS23

Forget everything you thought you knew about Mary Janes – this season the once prudish style has been given a sultry twist. Chunky-soled platforms with chrome button embellishments brought drama to Versace, while Christian Dior came with shiny suit-inspired multi-strap styles. Hail Mary, indeed.

All packed

Ferragamo SS23

Ultra-fine and stunning strap detailing was the underlying theme of footwear at Givenchy, Prabal Gurung and Ferragamo. Take it all the way up the leg in place of a thigh high boot or keep it low profile with Ferragamo’s stunning slingback.
