Stylish shoes elevate any outfit and represent the personal style of every woman. They can become a statement piece of any look on a day-to-day basis and special occasions. Also, high-quality shoes make women comfortable and confident with their overall image.

In spring, women’s footwear becomes more colorful and playful. Plenty of chic designs exist, from heeled sandals to flat ballerina shoes. The warm weather makes it possible for women to wear various footwear.


The spring 2023 shoe and sandal trends seen on the catwalks continue to reflect an absolute adoration for those more classic pieces that already have an important place in our shoe rack, such as Mary Janes, platforms and platforms and ballerinas. The ‘Y2K’ influence has motivated the return of kitten heels, iconic peep toes, and pointed silhouettes.

Mary Janes

Classic school shoes have become more sophisticated. They are ideal for wearing jeans, skirts, or formal clothing. On the Prada catwalk, the classic Mary Janes silhouette took a turn with chunky heels and pointed toes. At Versace, the goth girl wore multi-strap models with buckles. These timeless shoes keep being reinvented every year.

Ballet flats

A significant trend in flat shoes is ballet flats. Designers like Sunei and Tod’s followed Miu Miu’s lead with delicate ballerina slippers in bold satin yellows and purples. Simone Rocha experimented with sporty-soled ballet flats with buckles and PVC straps.

Tod’s presented them in brown with a leather finish and wide straps. On the other hand, Sandy Liang captivated with black satin-finish Mary Jane-style ballerina shoes that blend perfectly into midi dresses with a romantic aesthetic.

Low-heeled shoes are elegant and comfortable. They take looks to the next level, from your favorite jeans to long skirts and suits. Kitten heels are perfect to wear all day, go to the office and for dinner with friends.

The kitten shoes are the perfect heel to look chic while walking or standing for long hours. This footwear type helps stylize the legs and make the female figure more slender. Use them at work, special events, or days around the city.

Flat slingbacks

The warmest season is the perfect occasion to wear open footwear. If you don’t like sandals, then slingback flats will be for you. Chanel, in its SS 2023 collection, presented two-tone models. Tory Burch also dictated that peep toe shoes look incredible in flat silhouettes and electric colors.

Bright colors and dazzling shoes

Shoes in acid greens, bubblegum pinks, striking oranges, and neon yellow are popular this spring. If you want to tone down their eccentric colors, combine them with neutral or dark tones. Of course, if you dare, play the color block and mix it with other vibrant tones.

For a walk by the sea enjoying the spring breeze or to go out for a drink on a summer night, sandals are the perfect option to be as comfortable as fashionable. Wedge, flat or heeled, every woman can choose their favorite models. A collection of sandals cannot be missing from any woman’s wardrobe. Investing in sandals made of leather or other top-quality materials that don’t hurt or overheat the feet is best.
