Actually, it’s not only the fashion houses and brands that give preference to the new ugly shoes fashion trend, but also we’ve observed quite many of the celebs wearing this kind of shoes for important events! Among them we may note Alexa Chung, Rebecca Hall, and Lauren Laverne. But still, because of the name, it evokes conflicting feelings about the attitudes towards these shoes at first.
Talking about the ugly shoes, head of fashion at matchesfashion.com Natalie Kingham, who said to have a pair of the Christopher Kane originals, noted: “it wasn’t until this summer that most people’s eyes seemed to readjust to them, and that translated to sales. When I first saw them, they remind me of the shoes we wore in the 1990s.” She then added: “I remembered how popular they were then, and I thought about how well they would work with the current relaxed, sporty vibe.” Also, speaking about the aspect of comfort these shoes provide us with, she notes, “They are often called unsexy and maybe they are not men’s favorite shoe for women to wear, and they can look slightly orthopedic, but they make you look cool. They offer a lot of comfort; you can run around in them. I think they will be around for a few seasons.”

And yes, when you see the diverse models of the ugly shoes fashion trend and try out how comfortable they actually are, you immediately forget about your hesitations and doubts and it’s here that the ugly shoes get you hooked! Thus being more particular, we may talk about options like the ones suggested by Prada, putting those deconstructed and reshaped shoes with big proportions of jewels and curious color combinations. What Alexander McQueen suggested was a deconstructed heel, coming with curious designs and ways of implementing the platform principle. One of the brightest representatives of this trend is Celine, coming up with a super huge variety of platform sneakers and sandals. Talking about sandals, we can’t but note the ones coming with colorful interpretations and platforms as basic means of combining comfort and effect. DKNY, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Issey Miyake have all given way to this trend and contributed to their development, why not. Jill Sander, Kenzo, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Yohji Yamamoto have also suggested their own variants of these looks.
It’s a fact whatever top-popular fashion houses come up with and whatever famous celebrities, models, It girls and fashion bloggers wear becomes a real fever among the rest fashionisers. It’s always like that you first say “No, I’d rather never” and just some time later you start secretly thinking “why not!” and it’s exactly here that you actually get hooked by the current fashion obsession and you become obsessed too! Despite their ugly and quite unflattering aspect, ugly shoes attract lots of famous fashion enthusiasts today and it’s quite normal to see you hooked by the trend too!
So this is just another creative and cool trend that’s emerging to make a mini revolution in terms of style perception and concepts of beauty. Let’s wait and see what styles or looks it may be able to overweigh. And for now, we are to look through these options and to find out whether we like ugly shoes or not, and most likely the answer will absolutely be yes.
