Relax. Only some things have to be super deep. If you made it this far, you deserve severe shoe-shopping therapy. No matter which direction your life is going, these seven shoe trends will make sure you arrive in style.
The Fila Disruptors
So, hear me out: Filas is an under-the-radar shoe style. Mainly because it’s probably not your first thought when you think of shoe trends, but that doesn’t mean they’re not poppin’! The new Fila Disruptors are cute and comfortable sneakers that come in various solid colors and color combinations and can be worn with almost anything.
Another reason I’m so sold on these shoes is because they come in a bunch of neon colors, which, in case you missed it, has been trendy for several years now.
They’re also a bulkier shoe, which is also in now. The best part about these? They’re available in adult sizes at prices starting around $65!
Chain Accents Shoe Trend
Another major shoe trend this year is shoes with chain accents. This trend is a somewhat unconventional shoe design trend because a wearer can put it on any design of shoes and go. You will be walking in style, whether you are a slingback, pump, boot, or even sneakers.
Since chain accents are immense this year, it’s easy to find fanny packs, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and even masks to pair with your favorite shoes.
The best part? They come in a wide variety of colors, brands, and prices.
Remixing the Mary Jane Pumps
For most of us, it has been quite a while since we’ve been seen rocking Mary Jane’s shoes. But as we know, fashion is cyclical, and what’s out today will always come back in tomorrow.
These new-age Mary Jane pumps are fierce and come in so many shapes, sizes, and textures it can be hard to choose just one! Either way, you can find these almost anywhere, and many brands offer them for well below $100.
The Bow Shoes
If you somehow missed Rihanna’s epic limited edition Fenty/Puma line of 2015 (sucks to be you), you officially have another chance to adorn yourself in bows for no reason!
The Bow shoes have emerged significantly and can be found in everything from sneakers to pumps. While it may be tempting to break the bank for these, it’s not necessary.
Many brands make bow shoes in a price range accessible to every fashion-forward person’s budget!
The Neon Shoe Trend
I mentioned this before, but neon-colored anything is everything! The neon shoe trend is like a hidden-gen shoe trend for me. Once again, it is because I really love Neon colors. Although this trend has been around for years, more and more brands are starting to create bold, bright neon colors that will make sure you stand out no matter where you step.
Whether you are looking for slides, sneakers, boots, Crocs, pumps, or anything else, neon-colored ones are being made; if not, there will be!
The Sphere Heels Trend
Even though there have been traces of sphere heels in the fashion industry since around 2014, sphere heels were mainly reserved for elite fashion circles but are considered a less-know shoe craze.
However, these are much more accessible to the average fashionista as high and low-end brands now make them. Caution: These are not your everyday shoes. These are only when you want to make a bold statement!
The Furry Feet Shoe Trend
Although furry shoes are not new, in true fashion, they have officially come back around. While you may have been rockin’ those cutesy slides for years, you can now buy furry boots, pumps, sandals, etc.
Wrapping up Shoe Trends with
Looking fashionable with trendy shoes doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a fortune. Some of these trends are overlooked shoe aesthetics that have been around forever. They are just gaining popularity due to a cultural shift.

From the timeless elegance of minimalist sneakers to the audacious charm of chunky platforms, these trends effortlessly demonstrate that fashion need not break the bank. Remember, your shoe choice speaks volumes about your personality, aspirations, and cultural inclinations.
So, whether you’re strolling through city streets, embracing the great outdoors, or dancing the night away, let your feet carry you with the confidence that affordable shoe fashion can be the potent catalyst for self-expression.
