Trendstop brings FashionUnited readers the essential women’s footwear trends direct from the international runways for Spring Summer 2021.
The Eco Artisan Sandal
Fusing craftsmanship with eco-considerations, sandals are braided and woven to create intricate constructions for summer. Delicate leather worked straps are joined by plaited raffia and wooden trims, set atop natural leather or espadrille-style soles.
Sports footwear gains new interest with translucent layers encasing uppers and soles that are both directional and practical. Sheer mesh fabrics, frosted plastics and jelly-like detachable outer shells, partially reveal intricate layered sneaker constructions below.
The Padded Slide
Renewed consumer focus on comfort and WFH culture, inspires summer sandals that are as comfortable to wear indoors as out. Pillowy, padded straps have an inflated look, surrounding the foot with softness in smooth satin finishes or supple leathers.
