The Most Bizarre Spring 2017 Shoe Trends

What happened to classic sandals and sneakers?

Designers went really outside the box this season, showing off shoes that look more like art than footwear. Be it an adorned ankle or a super high flatform, the unique and daring shoe options are endless.

We're not going to lie, you probably won't catch us in any of these styles anytime soon, but they're definitely fun to look at! Thanks to a little influence from a roundup by our PreHeels pals, we've got seven of the most bizarre spring shoe trends below!

Ankle Strapped

Why go for a simple ankle strap when you can go bold? Spring is all about statement-making ankle straps in the form of oversized buckles and bows.

For those moments when you want to be tall, but don't want to wear a heel, try a flatform. A flatform is literally what it sounds like: a flat platform shoe. The beauty of this style is you get all the height without all the pain. But we will admit, they're kinda funny looking.

Colorful OTK Boots

Okay, this trend is wild. And leave it to Kylie Jenner to take it for a test ride. You've seen neutral-colored over-the-knee boots, but for spring, the brighter the color, the better.


Fringe Overload

Fringe for spring and summer, how revolutionary. But this spring, it's all about the micro fringe, topping everything from sandals to sneakers.


Over-the-Top Bows

Origami-inspired bows are dominating the street style scene. These beautiful bows look more like artwork than a piece of footwear, and we're not mad at them. But they're almost too pretty and elegant to wear.


Kitten Heels

Kitten heels aren't just for Suri Cruise anymore. The kitten heel lives, mainly because they're comfy and actually can be pretty chic. This is one bizarre style we wouldn't mind adding to our wardrobe.

Наконец-то и я с kitten heels ???? Девчонки, это же вторые кроссовки! ???? И плиз, не парьтесь про бренды ???? Покупайте ту обувь, которую реально можете себе позволить (а не работайте три месяца на новые туфли) и выбрасывайте ее без сожаления ???????????? Мои, например, из @stradivarius и стоят всего 2 или 3 тысячи ???? . #шоппинг #покупки #киттенхиллс #туфли #серебристыетуфли #гардероб #DA_гардероб #silver #silvershoes #shoes #shopping #kittenheels

Covered in Pearls

You've seen jewelry and dresses covered in pearls, and now it's your shoes' turn. Pearl-covered footwear made a splash thanks to Chanel's runway, and we've been spotting them everywhere. However, where to wear a pearl sandal? Hmm… definitely not the beach.

I have a feeling this whole pearly shoe thing is going to be an unhealthy obsession ????
