5 Shoe Styles You MUST TRY In 2016

If being fashionably fabulous is marked on your calendar for all 365 days of the year, then 2016 is going to be a great year for you. And if you’re a shoe lover like us, here’s a little good news: The shoe styles for this year are oh-so-chic. Forget eccentric, we’re noticing a pack of comfortable pairs that not only look sophisticated but you can strut around in them all day. Runway trends across SS2016 shows were dominated by these five styles, so here’s our list of of the must-try (and must-buy) shoe styles of 2016.

1. Mule Slides

Touted as the IT style of 2016, we’re looking forward to seeing a host of celebrities parading in these comfortable mule slides. As far as the runway is concerned, we saw a range of mules across design houses, including Thakoon’s mule booties, woven mules at Proenza Schouler, furry ones at Maison Margiela and more.
