It should be noted that the classics are gradually disappearing intopast, but there were unusual shoes made of transparent plastic, glamorous crocks, shoes, generously strewn with shining sequins and framed by a cascade of shuttlecock. The main attention should be paid to the elements of decor, which ceased to perform only a secondary role, becoming the main accent of shoes.
Shoes made of silicone, PVC and other types of plastic,however, like clothes and accessories - have become the main trend of this season. Designers loved this material for its visual weightlessness - even the boots acquired a mysterious soaring effect above the ground.
Some designers preferred to decorate"Invisible details" are only parts of shoes. For example, Oscar de la Renta and Alexander Wang made only the lifting line transparent, thanks to which and so neat classic shoes began to look even more elegant.
Transparent heel - this is another original andnot a new discovery. Versus, Prabal Gurung, Balmain and a number of other well-known brands presented stylish and unconventional styles of shoes with a transparent heel.
Shoes on the platform are gradually moving away fromdesigners in the background, only a few well-known brands introduced sandals on a flat or almost flat platform, the so-called flatform. But designers have a wide opportunity to experiment with footwear. For example, Mary Katranzou made the platform multilayered and very massive, adding to it a light top. And Gabriela Hearst models reminded something of traditional Japanese sandals of the Geta, only in modern design and in combination with the zebra safari print.
Shoes on the platform do not have to beeccentric and at times frankly freak. It can be elegant and even to some extent elegant. Such neat models on an almost flat platform were in the collections of Simone Rocha and Alexis Mabille.
It seems that the shoes are never out of fashion. Only the color changes depending on the season, but the style remains practically unchanged.

There is nothing superfluous in them, the accent is only made on color - most of the shoes are made in fashion shades, which Panton called the main ones in the spring-summer season of 2018.
A little added to the decor of simple unremarkable shoes Tom Ford and Saint Laurent. And note, the fringe and sequins will be in the trend this season.

In her collection there is a whole line of such shoes in any color scheme - from calm shades of gray and brown to a bright ultramarine and acrid fuchsia. The texture is also different - satin, leather, suede and velvet.
Low Heel Shoes
If you do not like high heels or maybe notyou want to seem higher - there is a way out. Buy shoes for spring in a 2-3-centimeter hairpin "kitten heel", which went into fashion last year. In the spring-summer season of 2018, such a small heel decorated almost all models of shoes - from sandals to boots and mules.
If your work does not allow you to appear in shoes on a flat sole, and a high heel is a lot of inconvenience, there is a way out - to get incredibly comfortable shoes on a low stud.
Those who do not like to flaunt on stilettos, even onthe lowest like "kitten heel" and does not tolerate the spirit on the platform, it remains to wear shoes on a flat sole. Fortunately, designers have prepared many fashionable options on a low sole. All attention to the straps and shape - the heel in these models is completely missing.
It would seem that it can be more convenient than shoes onflat sole - the designers offer to wear us even sandals on a thin socks. This may seem strange, but what was previously considered a bad taste today becomes fashionable.
When it becomes very hot, designers adviseTo change into open summer slippers. Moreover, some models by the presence of a heel and decor can make a strong competition, even barefoot. Unlike the second, the leg feels comfortable in them and nothing fetters the movements.
For sports lovers there will beFlip-flops in the collections of Mark Jacobs and Monse. They successfully combined both beauty and comfort. A bright decor and gentle colors will set a cheerful tone throughout the summer image.
Crocs have long since become fashionable, and it seems that theyare not going to surrender their positions, gradually gaining leadership among the rest of summer shoes. Initially, this footwear was developed for sailing and yachting - rubber materials allow not to slide on the floor. Over the design, no one thought until this model was not noticed by fashion designers.
Leading fashion houses presented their visionCrocs: they managed to combine the rubberized croslite material with crystals, paillettes and lace fabric. This unexpected combination of "rude slap" and glamorous shine gives the shoes an extraordinary modern look. Really fashionable Crocs are found in the collections of Balenciaga and Christopher Kane.
Return of the mule
Shoes without a back - again a trend. In the spring-summer season 2018 mules took one of the leading positions. Salvatore Ferragamo, Trussardi, Sportmax, Dion Lee, Marques Almeida - each brand presented its vision for the mule. Dion Lee and Y.

Modern design, effectively decorated with metal elements, colorful stones, large pompons and intertwined straps.
Fashion is changing rapidly and everything that beforewas considered home clothes, is now shown on the world's catwalks. Shoes in the form of home slippers, like clothes in the style of negligee, have long gone beyond the home doors.
A woman in a man's image is a long time agoreplicated modern image of strong and stylish girls. If in the clothes masculinity is expressed in pants and shirts in the men's style, then in the shoes - in the form of rough loffers, monks and strict shoes of clear geometric shapes.
Each designer in his own way interpreted the "man-like" trend. Haider Ackermann and Jil Sander presented a strong woman in black, angular shoes without a single hint of femininity.
Prada and Simone Rocha presented more feminine models in gentle pastel and brighter shades with a small amount of decor in the form of "pearl" beads and metal rivets.
Alexander McQueen and Jeremy Scott brought a bit of unisex in the spring-summer displays of 2018 in the form of rough glamorous shoes, which are combined with floral prints, sequins and paillettes.

True, modern models already resemble former brethren except in form - they were carefully worked on by designers. Calvin Klein introduced the world cowboy boots with an iron insert on the toe, Maison Margiela finalized the shape of the shoes and decorated with a small number of rhinestones.
The real cowboy glam chic showed Versus and Coach - their shoes are lavishly decorated with sequins and decorated with fashions that are fashionable this season.
Boots for the summer are no longer a novelty for the fashion world. Now, leather boots that could lie down at least until September, designers insistently recommend us to wear warm spring in a bare leg with light dresses and mini skirts.
Designers offered several options - bright boots of juicy colors with a wide boot, mesh "breathable" boots, boots with an open toe and ultra-long boots-stockings.
Note, no stockings and pantyhose - put on summer boots only on your bare foot.
Fashionable Sports Shoes
Many famous brands have included in their collectionssports shoes. The most notable models can be found in the collections of Loewe, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Prada.

Not only sneakers have become a model of shoes for an active lifestyle. Sports sandals with high heels or on a rough tread-solder will be sure to be in the trend next summer.
Shoes with straps and fasteners
Since the fashion for weaving in the spring-summer season 2018literally blew podiums, many designers decided to show their vision of this trend in the design of shoes. Jeremy Scott and Jason Vu presented elegant shoes on a hairpin, consisting entirely of thin straps and laces.
Straps can be of a very different thickness, anddecorative fasteners can both decorate shoes, and at all to be absent. The weaving itself can end in the area of the lift of the foot, or it may even reach the level of the knee.
Emilia Wickstead and Dolce & Gabbana equipped the shoes with a comfortable strap on the rise and a T-shaped buckle, which makes you feel comfortable even with a high heel.
High-heeled sandals - gladiator sandals
High-footed gladiators - this is far from beingnew trend. Fashion for gladiatorial sandals ended a few years ago, but in the spring-summer season 2018 designers decided to recall the high sandals, sometimes reaching the level of the knees. The new life of gladiators is just beginning, only a few brands have presented such shoes.
Sandals with socks
Sandals on top of tights and sock - this is a bad taste. So recently, many fashion experts said. But now the relationship to such a combination has radically changed. Last year, designers shoe models in shoes with socks, now it's the turn to sandals and a thong.

Footwear with fringe
The main element of decor in the spring-summer season2018 became fringe, which revived and gave dynamism to even the most unremarkable shoes.

Shoes Christopher Kane in the style of glam-rock has become moremore "drive" after it was decorated with a shining fringe of rhinestones. These mysterious ropes harmoniously looked even in combination with a restrained casual style.
Sequins and glitter
Multicolored glitter is anothera popular element in the decor in the spring-summer season of 2018. The Emilia Wickstead, Valentino, Dolce & Gabana, Victoria Beckham and a number of other well-known brands have been generously "sweetened" with paillettes. After that, even the usual green shoes glowed with emerald light and looked completely different.
Pay attention that the style of such masterpiecessimple, which can not be said about the exterior design. They shine and attract attention with their magnificent radiance. But do not forget - there should not be much brilliance. Although designers demonstrate the opposite effect.
In contrast to masculinity and coarse shoesfashion designers offer to decorate shoes with a truly feminine element - ruffles and frills. This decor creates a feeling of freshness and lightness, especially in combination with pastel tones. Large frills immediately attract attention and visually reduce the foot.
Unusually look sandals from MSGM - rucheshave appeared absolutely unexpectedly in the field of a heel. Cheerful colors, thin straps and playful ruches - all this creates a cheerful and carefree image for a sunny summer.
