One of the most exciting ways for fashion enthusiasts to start a new year is by delving into trend forecasts. Fashion's ever-changing nature allows for the continuous evolution of styles and the emergence of new favorites. While we can't predict everything that 2024 will bring in terms of fashion and footwear trends, we can take a closer look at the current collections, trending moments, and upcoming merchandise to get a glimpse of what lies ahead. Let's explore some of the shoes and brands that are likely to make a big splash as the "It" items of 2024.

The Row’s Jelly Shoes

The Row has become synonymous with timeless elegance and sophisticated designs. In recent years, the brand has been at the forefront of the mesh ballet flat trend. With their spring pre-fall '24 collection, The Row continues to innovate by introducing intricately woven jelly flats. As jelly textures and shapes are set to trend in 2024, it's safe to say that these modern ballet flats will fly off the shelves as soon as they hit stores.

Jimmy Choo’s Ixia Sandal

Jimmy Choo, the luxury footwear brand, has unveiled a new "drop" heel as part of its spring '24 collection. The Ixia sandal features a geometric criss-cross toe strap detail, an angled square toe sole, and a teardrop-shaped heel for an extra touch of modernity. With awards season just around the corner, it's highly likely that these heels will grace the red carpet soon. And come spring, they will become a go-to choice for weddings and parties.

The brand's spring '24 runway show at Milan Fashion Week showcased a vision that focuses on color, iconography, and silhouettes. One standout piece from the collection is the high-rise flatform loafer, complete with Gucci's signature horsebit hardware. These attention-grabbing platforms are sure to take fashion to new heights.

Miu Miu’s Sparkly-Sporty Thongs

Miu Miu, the Italian fashion brand, captivated audiences with its take on the ballet flat trend. However, for spring '24, the brand has set its sights on thong sandals. These Y2K-inspired sandals feature colorful cable rope and oversized crystal jewels. Models walked the runway wearing colorful bandaids, which might just become a footwear trend of their own in 2024.

Prada’s Square-Toed Mules

Prada continues to make a statement with its unique footwear designs. While their foam rubber fisherman sandals and puffy padded leather ballerinas remain popular, Prada is gearing up to launch a new kitten heel for spring '24. These heels will feature softer, more luxurious satins and a comfortable squared toe. Whether or not they bear the iconic triangular logo, these mules and slingbacks are sure to capture attention.

Ugg’s Sunburst Tall Boots

After the Mini Platform trend, Ugg's tall boots are poised to make a comeback. With many people receiving low-rise Uggs during the holiday season, the fashion landscape is likely to be divided into two phases: Mini domination in winter and a targeted revival of tall boots in fall 2024.

Loewe has a track record of producing "It" shoes, and 2024 will be no exception. Creative director Jonathan Anderson has introduced a new collection of quirky heels and flats. The footbed heels, in particular, are likely to resonate with fashion-forward individuals who prioritize comfort without sacrificing style. Loewe's innovative designs continue to push boundaries and capture the attention of fashion enthusiasts.

More Adidas Wales Bonner x Sambas

The Adidas Wales Bonner collaboration is set to maintain its buzz throughout 2024. While the 2023 Shoe of the Year will eventually lose momentum, the ongoing collaboration between Adidas and British designer Grace Wales Bonner is sure to keep the excitement alive. TikTok has already embraced the latest styles, crowning them as the go-to "It" girl shoes.

Christian Louboutin’s Miss Jane Pumps

Christian Louboutin is known for its iconic stiletto heels, but for spring '24, the focus shifts to the Mary Jane silhouette. The tap-inspired design brings a sense of dance and movement to these shoes. With a double-cross Mary Jane style and the influence of Jane Birkin's iconic silhouette, these pumps are perfect for those who want to dance the night away in comfortable yet stylish heels.
