Like every year, 2023 has in store some coolest and most dramatic shoe trends for women to keep their style in check and popularity up high. 

Stilettos Reworked for 2022

2022 was all about super comfortable wedges, platform pumps, and stomper sole shoes that took over from stiletto heels. Stilettos were only kept for glam nights and that too, when they worked with the outfit and were outright stylish and unique to blow away someone’s mind. Designers and fashion houses reworked stiletto heels into their dramatic and chic versions taking the style a notch higher. Take, for example, Loewe’s balloon-swathed pumps or their stilettos with cracked egg, with the soap bar, or with the upside-down rose heels.
