Shoe Trends: The Hottest Styles The Celebs Are Loving

Take your inspo from these celebs who have been nailing this summer’s hottest trends. From gladiator sandals to the new take on Mary-Janes, make it your mission to tick off these summer shoe trends and get ready to storm through the new season in style.

Gladiator Sandals

Thanks to the big boho revival – and the Chloe catwalk – gladiators are back this season and making a case for being one of summer’s biggest shoe trends. We’re still talking about the classic multi-strapped, lace or buckle-up shape, but for 2015, there are two ways to take on the trend – ankle height or on-the-knee. Which camp will you choose?

Be brave like Chanel Iman – who rocked an on-the-knee pair at Coachella – and try out these glads from Zara.


Zara Leather Gladiator Sandals, £89.99

Alternatively, play it a little safer and slip into a pair of shorter sandals like the gorgeous Bella Thorne. Next have come up trumps with their short gladiator sandal offering.


Next Suede Gladiator Sandals, £36

’70s Sandals

There’s no escaping a certain decade this season, with chunky platforms currently flooding the high street, including wooden-soled clog styles and glam-rock strappies. Wood numbers are perfect for day – just add flares or a floaty boho midi, then for evening, team metallic or snakeskin platforms with a jumpsuit or lurex dress for a disco feel. Take your cue from the queen of cool, Beyonce, and slip into a pair of height-enhancing platforms! Try these metallic beauties out from Steve Madden at ASOS.

Celeb-Loved Strappys

Cannes has seen many a fashion trend made this week but no shoe has been worn by more celebs than the classic two-strap sandal. From Sienna Miller to Rooney Mara, the only shoe to be seen in this season is the simplest of them all! Leg lengthening, super sleek and able to be worn with anything, if you haven’t already got a pair, make it your mission now! Go classic like Sienna or make a statement in these snakeys.


Topshop Snake Heels, £46

The New Mary-Janes

Alexa Chung and Kate Bosworth can’t get enough of their Carven flatties, both having worn them more times than we can count! And why? Well because they work season after season and will never date. We’ve found a lovely pair from Shoesissma which will have you looking celeb-ready in no time!


ASOS Shoesissima Mary-Janes, £79.99
