Comfort ruled supreme on the Spring/Summer 2017 runways—but was it at the expense of style? 

  • 1/10

    Christopher Kane

    London-based Kane literally made headlines around the world when he sent bejewelled Crocs down his Spring 2017 runway. Our verdict: Gardening chic. 

  • 2/10

    Christian Dior

    Consider these a rather elevated version of the shower shoe you wore in your dorm room days.

  • 3/10

    Hood by Air

    These boots, designed by avant-garde street style visionary Shayne Oliver, literally don’t know whether they’re coming or going.

  • 4/10

    Céline

    Mismatched shoes? Absolutely, if Céline designer Phoebe Philo has anything to do with it. No word on how to style these in the real world, without looking—er—insane. 

  • 5/10

    Vivienne Westwood

    Radical environmentalist Westwood put clogs on the runway, alongside Birkenstock-style sandals and models in micro-ponchos. 

  • 6/10

    Maison Margiela

    Noted eccentric John Galliano continued to straddle the line between genius and madness with these brightly coloured Teva-inspired sandals. 

  • 7/10

    Alexander McQueen

    Talk about a statement shoe: No one will dare mess with you in these studded, steel-toed combat boots.

  • 8/10

    Comme des Garçons

    Rei Kawakubo is best known for her high-concept, avant-garde aesthetic, so we were pleasantly surprised by the wearability of the stark white moon boots she showed off for Spring. 

  • 9/10

    Preen

    Designer Thornton Bregazzi teamed up with UGG to make these flip-flop flatforms. (Try saying “flip-flop flatforms” five times fast!)

    Marc Jacobs

    Marc Jacobs’ platform boots look like the kind of thing favoured by animé characters like Sailor Moon. Maybe because you have to be a superhero to walk in 7-inch heels!
