Sculptural heels are the newest shoe trend for this season, these are the best pairs to wear now, from high street to designer
As tights return to their summer storage spots and your legs see the light of day again, it’s time to start thinking about what to put on your feet, now that weatherproofing your shoes is not the top of the priority list.
One of the biggest trends for s/s 2019 is the sculptural heel. From Rejina Pyo to Simone Rocha and Jacquemus, the heel shape du jour is not the stiletto or kitten heel we’ve seen over recent seasons, but heels fashioned from spheres, carved wood and sculpted plastic were all ready to see the sun. Here’s our pick of the best sculptural heels to wear now.
