The Most Stylish Shoe Trends of 2019

No matter what you’re wearing, your shoes have the potential to totally change your entire outfit. A pair of sneakers gives a totally different feel than a pair of loafers, and they truly can make or break a look.

With that being said, we’re all about experimenting with new shoe trends — one on-trend pair worn with our clothing staples can take us through an entire season, and switching up our shoes can elevate our wardrobes to a whole new level.

Without further ado, here are all of the shoe trends that will take you through 2019 — say hello to square toes, lots of animal prints, and different cuts on your go-to booties.

 

Square Toe

We’re all used to super-sharp, pointed toes, but in 2019, things are going square. For a twist on any of your favorite kicks, ditch your round or pointed-toe favorites for squared.

V-Cuts

In 2019, Vs are going to be used to describe more than your necklines. With v-cut, abbreviated toplines, these shoes all taper off to reveal more of your foot. The tapered trend will be coming to all of your favorite shoes — from mules to flats (and a lot of slingbacks).

Animal Prints

At this point, animal prints are neutrals in our closets. They totally took off in 2018, and this year they’ll be all over our footwear — try a cheetah or python print and take a walk on the wild side, and these will be your new go-to shoes.

Flip-flop inspired sandals

These aren’t the flip flops that you got at Old Navy for $1 that your mom yelled at you to stop wearing because “you’re going to break an ankle!” Thong-style sandals will be taking over your spring and summer, along with toe-wraps.

Cutouts

Your go-to shoes, just revealing more skin — this trend is a super wearable twist on your favorite classics. A cutout bootie is also a perfect transitional place to take you from winter to spring (once the weather gets above -20).
