The star shoes of the new season

Since the shoe is the best ally of the stylish Parisienne, it is high time to check out the latest trends of the season. Standing out from the crowd, there is the chunky sneaker worn by daddies with its extra large soles, the super feminine sock boots to enhance the ankle, the gorpcore hiking boot, shoes with hybrid heels and preppy loafers. Where to find these and how to wear them? Follow the guide.

The 2.0 hiking shoe

gorpcore rando

Do you know “gorpcore”? Grand-grand godchild of normcore, this is the stylistic advent of the hiking-trekking look. Anti-glam’? Not if Gucci steps into the picture. Barely out of their boxes, the mountain sneakers of Flashtrek are already creating the buzz on the networks and encouraging the fashionsphere to enjoy the great outdoors.

We follow suit in a banker-friendly version with resolutely trendy urban walking shoes. Forget the Quechua parka and the Décathlon Polartec (alert first degree) and prefer to associate them with an offbeat combo such as a midi skirt and a belted trench coat.

Sneaker Flashtrek, Gucci, €790.

Short boots in leather and suede lined with sheepskin Edna, Ganni, 350 €.

Hiking style booties, Bimba y Lola, €255. Available at the boutique 34-36 rue des Francs Bourgeois, 75003.

The hybrid architectural-style heel

The heel becomes fun and extravagant for an offbeat new season, setting forth a resolutely trendy jewel aspect. As inspiration, the Jacquemus sandals made of an assembly of multi-coloured wood shapes that bring to mind the cubist lines of Picasso from whom the darling of fashion editors draws his inspiration.

The summer it-shoe is adapted to the new season thanks to a short bootie with a hybrid heel, quasi architectural, with wood details and silver ball. Or when the shoe becomes a work of art. In a jean one-piece suit or in a combo jean + hem: your shoes is the indispensable accessory of your outfit.

Leather booties with round heel, Zara, €89.95.

Bottines cuir vernies, Mango, 89,99 €.

Booties with sculpted hexagonal heels, Topshop, €125.

The neo preppy moccasin


This year, it will be blowing 65 candles as best-seller of the Gucci House. Associated in the past to the bourgeois dwellers of chic districts, the moccasin had undergone a democratic change while preserving its preppy origins that naturally convey chic to any kind of look.

Its silhouette was given an aristocratic touch with “loafers” amongst all the models offered this year: Prince of Wales print, with platform, patent leather and even studs, there will be a wide array of styles. Perfect for the working girl worn with a wool or corduroy pant suit, smack in the trend.

White moccasins with platform, Bershka, €35.99.

Printed moccasin, & Other Stories, €89.

PetitDuc moccasins, Petite Mendigote, €140.

The XXL daddy sneaker

Your dad wore them on his feet to tinker around the house or go fetch break bread on Sunday. Having become a star thanks to Steve Carell and his beaten up New Balance in Crazy, stupid love, the “Dad shoe” incarnates this new clothing style on the frontier between trendy and bad taste. Also well known on the other side of the Atlantic under the name chunky sneakers or ugly sneakers, the dad shoe is flourishing on the Intagram accounts of the most trendy fashionistas.

As banner, the Triple S of Balenciaga, uncontested star of the latest fashion weeks. We follow the movement with colourful models at every price, and we team them up with a pretty long dress or a ¾ pair of slightly flared jeans, and a couture jacket.

W20, Maje, €245.

Triple S, Balenciaga, €695.

Aztrek, Reebok, €99.95.

Trompe l’œil sock boots

A pair of socks to slip on before hopping out of bed or an avant-garde accessory? Both my captain! After Vetements, Yeezy and Balenciaga, sock boots are back in the running this season for our greatest pleasure, giving our ankles a nice touch of seduction. Or how to combine elegance and casual chic in every circumstance.

We like the fun and off-beat versions imagined by leading names of the ready-to-wear with trompe l’œil effects, a maxi logo, fine or rather square heels. Allow them to peep out under a ¾ pair of flare jeans with a tapered blazer.

Sock boots with large heel and flag logo, Tommy Hilfiger, €139.90.

Sock boots with floral print, Monki, €40.

Two-material boots with heels, Sandro, 275€.
