What shoes will be popular in 2023?
In 2023, the shoes that will be most popular according to fashion designers are platforms, loafers and black knee-high boots with a thin heel. Designers say that this year you should not be afraid of bold experiments. They also advise matching your shoes to your outfit and playing with shades and contrasts. You can also create striking accents with rich colors. A lot of the shoes that were popular back in the day will be a huge hit in 2023, for example the Mary Janes.
2023 shoe trends: Soccer sneakers
This type of sneaker by the popular brand Adidas has been on the market for quite some time, but of course became very popular in 2022 due to the fact that our favorite models Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid chose to wear them in their everyday life. Hailey Bieber has mentioned in interviews that she loves these type of “dad sneakers” and wears them quite often, sometimes even with a jacket and pants. This year we will be seeing a lot more of them as it is one of the most comfortable choices you can look stylish with.
As I have mentioned many times before, 2023 will be the year of bold fashion choices and experimentation. Don’t bow down to being a “plain Jane” as one of my favorite colleagues likes to say. If you want to be an absolute fashion icon in 2023, you must have metallic boots in your wardrobe. Whether gold or silver, it doesn’t matter because you’ll definitely be freaked out at how easy they are to pair with basically anything.
2023 shoe trends: Mary Janes
Many of the things that have been semi-polar in the past are back in full force. That’s great because I love the 18th century and I think fashion was great all those years. Mary Jane shoes that give a schoolgirl vibe will be all the rage in 2023. Closed-toed, low-cut Mary Janes typically have one or more straps that cross the instep. The Mary Jane may be traced back to King Henry VIII. The traditional Mary Jane comes in black (occasionally patent) leather and became the iconic shoe to wear with your school uniform. Since that time, Mary Jane—a representation of girlhood who was both mischievous and nice—has left the schoolyard. Sara Jessica Parker, our fashion girl, is definitely a fan of this trend as she was seen wearing them in her daily outfits.

You can pair them with dresses, jeans, shorts and blazers and much more.
