Every spring summer season calls for a wave of new fads. While we were treated to the sculpted garments in technicolour and experimental textures on the runway, we tend to lose sight of the little things: footwear.
Strapped leather sandals, pointed stilettos and macramé platforms are just some of the popular styles we’ve seen across the shows. Yet what really caught our attention on the catwalks are the peculiar looking ones. So step out of your comfort zone and take your pick from this list of unusual but wearable heels fresh from this season’s runway.
Unusual can be pretty too with Max Mara’s lovely pointed heels. Designed with a flouncy leather fin streaming down the back counter to the end of its heel, this pair is the perfect combination of a classic heel style with an artsy flair.
Moschino lives up to their eccentric approach towards design in creating a pair of cork heels with gold piping covered in multi-coloured splatters of paint. While cork remains an unusual material choice for heels, its water-resistant nature is often used as an alternative to leather in handbags, wallets and other fashion items.
Balmain’s jacklyn mirrored heels are embellished with various silver-tone mirrors and is as dazzling as a disco ball. On top of the bling, it features an ornate silver ball in between its block heel. Bring the party with you wherever you go with this one.
While sneakers continue to dominate the fashion scene, Off-White decided to innovate by creating the ultimate hybrid of the season, the sneaker heel. This pair is the marriage between two opposites with the top half looking like a sneaker and the bottom half resembling a fancy strapped heel. It’s the perfect pair to go with your casual denim outfit that will take you from day to night.
Fendi panelled court heels is constructed with various multicolour technical mesh panels in a technique that resembles a mola appliqué. In other words, you’re literally wearing a work of art. The different panels might be oddly shaped but they eventually come together nicely, creating a streamlined contour. It’s a real statement for sure, so we’d recommend you to pair this with a stylish but simple outfit.
