As the days get longer and the sun burns a little brighter in the sky (well, for now at least) it’s hard not to feel that our black leather winter boots are letting us down somewhat. We’ve undoubtedly found ourselves optimistically reaching for printed midi dresses, swishy skirts and lighter jackets in a bid to turn our backs on winter and our trusty boots just don’t cut it any more. We want to wear cute pumps with our jeans! Go lighter in fabrics! Bolder on colour! But realistically, we still have to be prepared for any seasonal mood swings that are likely to come our way.
Luckily, the footwear aficionados at FitFlop have heard our cries for spring-ready shoes that can withstand the elements and have released a new collection that makes our hearts (and feet?) sing. Sensibly, they haven’t gone full cut-out toes and flimsy fabrics just yet – instead, they’ve introduced new women’s designs with cooler prints, relaxed shapes and lighter construction. Just the thing to go with our latest denim and dress combination. If you’re looking to dip your toe into the new season, take a look at our favourite styles from the new Fitflop collection.
FitFlop’s Fancy Flats Are The Alternative To Winter Boots We’ve Been Looking For
Dying to break your feet out of their winter funk? FitFlop have the sweetest flats and lightweight shoes to get you in the spring mood
The London Fashion Week Favourite
Spotted on none other than model turned photographer and fashion editor Candice Lake at LFW, the White Uberknit sock boot is a refreshing alternative to your usual boots or trainers. The sleek silhouette is cool, casual and minimal whilst the signature FitfFlop cushioned sole ensures maximum comfort running between shows (or, you know, running to the shops).
The New Season Hybrid Boot
Is it a boot? Is it a summer sandal? Actually, it’s kinda both and we’re here for it. This design takes the Uberknit we already love and adds oversize faux-leather plaits that almost mimic a slider, combining to make one of the coolest designs we’ve seen in a while. This one’s only for the bold, but we love it styled with a printed midi dress and tailored coat for an unexpected mix.
The New York-Approved Pump
Another Fashion Week number, we spotted the Allegro snake print ballet pump on insta-influencer Natalie Suarez, aka @natalieoffduty. Animal print as a trend is going absolutely nowhere for the year ahead and adding a flash of snake on footwear is a great way to start. As these are made of quality patent leather, they’ll also stand up in any spring showers too.
