Calling all shoe lovers! Can we have your attention, please? We’re happy to announce that shoe trends in 2019 are anything but basic. This year, it’s all about subtle fashion tweaks to classic styles. Think timeless boots but in a funky print, or easy-to-wear mules with a pointy toe. If you’re a fan of beautiful shoes, this is the year to add a pair (or three) to your collection.
So whatever your style or budget, we’ve got a shoe trend that you ‘ll fall in love with.
Love them or hate them – here are 10 shoe trends you should know about in 2019:
Maybe it was the chunky dad sneaker or the popularity of block heels, but you can’t talk about 2019 shoe trends without mentioning retro platform heels. Wear them with denim culottes for a modern ’70s look, or with a flowy dress for a nod to the boho style.
The ankle boot of the year award will go to cowboy boots. If you’re feeling brave, go for a more traditional silhouette and print. Or choose a simpler design that still honours the western trend.
The perspex trend is evolving and we couldn’t be happier. Say goodbye to sweating in your see-through shoes, and hello to practical, pretty perspex sandals and mules.

The pointed mule
Style meets comfort with pointed mules. Now you can elongate your legs with a pointed shoe without squishing your toes into an unforgiving shape. Can we have a pair in every colour, please?
Also known as the naked shoe, these sandals have straps so thin they could be mistaken for not being there at all. Minimalist and modern, these heels are perfect for a woman who wants to make a subtle style statement.
A square toe
Square-toe shoes are dominating Instagram right now. And for good reason. Not only is it a silhouette that we haven’t seen in a few years; but let’s face it, they are so much more comfortable than pointed-toe shoes.
We’re seeing this print everywhere, and shoes are no exception…

Nothing says ‘I’m in the fashion know’ more than a pair of high fashioned and edgy v-cut shoes.
