Until a few years ago, we believed that we had to wear high heels to be stylish. Yes, high heels really take your style to the next level, both in style and height! However, after the pandemic, the fashion world, like everyone else, started to adopt comfortable styles. And guess what happened? We discovered that flat shoes create styles just as cool as heels!
Flat shoes, which increase our range of motion and make us comfortable all day long, are ideal for creating effortless elegance in the spring and summer seasons. These straight silhouettes, which prove that beauty does not go through pain, appear in many different models in 2023. Fisherman’s sandals and mary-jane flats that remind us of our childhood, bow flats with a reference to Parisian style, suede loafers from college style to teacher style and much more…
We don’t have to give up heels completely! However, let’s admit that it is much more comfortable to use flat shoes in daily life…
You can see the 6 shoe trends of the season in the photo gallery…
Fisherman’s sandals, which were the ‘it-trend’ of last summer season, continue their show of strength in 2023. The fisherman sandals that we wore as a kid or that you saw in your mom’s childhood photos have become a favorite of Instagram stars. It is possible to wear sandals without the hassle of pedicure with the fisherman’s sandals, which combine the styles of flats and sandals!

Mary-jane shoes, which have been in the fashion cycle for years and seasons, are one of the cutest items of the ‘little-girl’ style. The banded mary-jane silhouette, which sometimes takes the form of stilettos, sometimes on thick heels, sometimes on jagged soles, returns to its essence this season. Mary-Jane styles, which re-adopt the straight and quite plain silhouette, are a cute alternative to flats.
