The geometry lessons: cones, spheres, and spirals as the trendiest shape of heel this summer

While some designers offer to spend this summer wearing massive sporty sandals with Velcro and flat soles in the style of the 1990s, others use fashion as a field for experimentation and do not limit their imagination in anything. If a few years ago, shoes with surreal heels in the form of curls, inverted cones, or transparent spheres were perceived only as an element of a fashion show, this season it is a part of the basic wardrobe. The main thing is to maintain a balance between futurism and elegance.



We recommend to wear such an unusual pair of shoes with garments of solid colors and simple cut whilst going to informal meetings or parties - bright sandals with fancy heels in the style of Lady Gaga will look perfect on the dance floor, but not in the office. However, it does not mean that you should combine pencil skirts, trouser suits and Bermuda shorts only with classic shoes or loafer. Many brands have a variety of quite interesting options that simultaneously look unusual and restrained - the secret lies in the pastel palette and natural materials.



The French designer and founder of Jacquemus brand Simon Porte Jacquemus, who is always one the first to catch trends and win the hearts of fashion influencers, believes that crazy shoes will soon capture the whole world and suggests dedicating summer 2020 to experiments: it is time to forget about spike heels, kitten heel shoes and other classical models to try standing on curls, pyramids, and spheres.  There is our guide that help you to choose the most stylish and coolest pairs for this summer!
