The perfect shoes for spring. What will be fashionable in Spring 2021?

Spring is the perfect season to complement your wardrobe with fashionable women’s footwear. Boots, slippers, espadrilles or maybe flip-flops? We check which models are must-have this season.

Classics and catwalk inspirations

Women’s footwear collections for each new season are a mix of classics and returning trends. The spring 2021 season doesn’t look different among brands designing women’s footwear. We start with the returning trends and those that debuted last year, but are still in vogue.

Women’s shoes 2021 – recycling of the trends

Flip-flops in glamour style

Trends such as those seen last year are back on the catwalks. These include elegant oversize women’s flip-flops in the style of home flip-flops – with fur, quilting and fancy decorations. Models referring to extravagant flip-flops in the style of Balenciaga or Givenchy will also be seen in Polish footwear collections.

Subtle women’s sandals with straps

This year, the fashion for women’s sandals with a delicate structure based on thin straps continues. Fashionable footwear in this style will consist of a flat sole and a set of thin, decorative straps. Instead of glittering embellishments, there is a focus on minimalism.


A recurring “old new” trend that will continue this year is the fashion for chain embellishments and details – an element brought back thanks to Victoria Beckham’s collections, among others. Large and small chains can appear as a detail in spring boots and flip-flops.  

Women’s platform shoes

Platform shoes are making another big comeback – a trend which is either loved or hated, depending on individual preferences. What is certain, however, is that you cannot be indifferent to platforms. In the new collections of fashionable spring women’s shoes, platforms will appear as mandatory elements of slippers, boots, espadrilles and even flip-flops.

Neons a’la the 90s.

When it comes to colour trends, next to the pastel colours, we can bet on neons – i.e. shades of green, yellow and intense pink, so much loved in the 90s. A colour which – in terms of popularity – is likely to replace the wildly fashionable mustard. Fuchsia remains very popular – in this colour we will see, among others, stiletto heels, pumps and flip-flops.

Classic women’s shoes for spring 2021

There will also be well-known and proven classics in the new collections. It is worth completing your spring wardrobe with the following classic models of women’s footwear.

Boots and Chelsea boots 

Black or brown, tailored women’s Chelsea boots are always fashionable – elegant shoes look well with tailored trousers and pencil skirts. In spring outfits, you can bet on classics or models on platforms. This season, openwork boots on a medium heel will be again fashionable. We will wear both built-in versions and girly, openwork peep toe boots. Apart from classic stilettos and flat soles, platforms – extravagant versions of boots – are sure to appear.


Women’s espadrilles are another spring/summer 2021 must-have, and the classic form of these extremely comfortable shoes is still in fashion. New shoe collections will also include returning trend versions, such as espadrilles with thick soles and espadrilles in the form of comfortable flip-flops.


Speaking of flip-flops, it’s worth taking a look at the latest trends. A key feature of this season’s flip-flops can be a thick rubber sole, trendy colours (neons are back) or a reference to the trend for plush, quilted flip-flops. Flip-flops are also back in fashion, but in a maxi version with a thick rubber sole.

Stiletto shoes with a strap

This season, we’ll also be seeing a lot of soft, yet elegant footwear. Women’s shoes with a sturdy heel are still very much in fashion, especially models with a strap. Universal shoes – perfect for office, romantic and casual outfits. Stiletto shoes and fitted jeans are a duo that always works and emphasises the silhouette beautifully.

Autumn shoes = spring shoes?

One of the more unusual and classic trends is the comeback of cowboy boots, overknees and jackboots. Footwear typical of the autumn season will also be seen in a new version in spring collections. Cowboy boots and over-the-knee boots are a must-have addition to trendy boho outfits – it is almost certain that this type of footwear will not lose its popularity.

Spring sprint – women’s sports shoes 2021

Last year brought the huge popularity of sports shoes, combining comfort with an interesting form. White girly sneakers remain fashionable. As well as standard sneakers, fancy sports shoes with thick soles are back in fashion – another trend from the 1990s. Thick soles, pastel and neon colours, combinations of sports shoes and long skirts – these are the elements we are most likely to see in spring styles.
