From New York to London, Milan, and Paris, through videos, presentation, and newly socially distanced runway shows, designers offered us whimsical escapes into the future inspired by their lockdown daydreams for spring 2021. Given the wanderlust for the great outdoors, the shoe trends on the runway followed suit — think stilettos that look like floral meadows. The sports sandal trend inspired by Teva and Birkenstock continued, and a new flatform silhouette reigned supreme.
As McMullen founder Sherri McMullen told us, “We are in a time where clothes are for support, for comfort, and to make a statement.” Classic and comfortable ballet flats are back, and block heels give us extra oomph and height.
