Backless loafers have had a very long moment in the sun, with the trend first emerging on fashionable feet starting around 2015. Fast forward to 2019, and while the once-omnipresent shoe trend is still around, there’s one notable new style vying for attention.
90s-inspired kitten heels have steadily been climbing up the trend ladder. Once considered kitschy or unflattering, buzzworthy brands like By Far, Staud, and Cult Gaia have all cemented the comfortable shoe silhouette as a chic choice. Taking it a step further, influencers have illustrated just how versatile and sleek slipping into a pair of low-heel sandals can actually be (plus, they’re way less hard on your feet than the 80s-reminiscent stilettos we’ve seen as of late).
Ahead, see our roundup of the recent spring looks showcasing the trend and shop our picks to test drive it this season — you, and your foot arches, won’t regret it.
Always looking ahead? Here are the most important shoe trends for Fall 2019.
