Women’s Trend: The Pointed Toe Shoe Is Back

It’s time for fashionable young professionals around the world to rejoice: the pointy-toe shoe is back, stronger and more sought-after than ever. This trend has also never made us look so good! The pointed shoe is a leg-lengthening, slimming look, whether it is in the form of an ankle boot, a classic pump or a mule. Pointy shoes have been all over the runways, streets and offices these days, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  

After trying to make a comeback for the last few seasons, the mule is finally one of the most featured styles on runways. Designers such as Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Altuzarra highlight this shape for the spring season.

Sharp, strappy stilettos are appearing centre stage and slingback slip-ons are fearlessly returning. Designers such as Balenciaga, Prada, Narciso Rodriguez and Bottega Veneta highlighted the slingback pointed heel, and Tory Burch offered metallic pointy slingbacks in both a mid-heel as well as a flat.

For the YP woman that is on her feet all day, opting for a flatter version of the pointy craze can be as complementary to your look and your legs as the sky-scraping styles. Oscar Del La Renta, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Helmut Lang and Rodarte have much to offer.

If you want to start the trend early, Derek Lam, Dior and Alexander Wang made winter-friendly versions for Fall/Winter that are to die for. 

The classic pointed pump has lead the woman’s shoe game for decades and will continue to outlast any fad. The pump delivers the utmost ladylike presence and effortlessly transitions you from day to night, but for a bolder and more seductive semblance, opt for a pointier version and add a hint of toe cleavage.
