Top 100 Shoe Trends in April

From Luxe Bedazzled Basketball Sneakers to Retro Neon Baby Shoes

— April 29, 2018 — Fashion
Featured in the April 2018 shoe trends are a number of sneaker designer, luxury stilettos, stylish baby kicks, sleek dress shoes, summer-ready sandals, and much more.

Designer footwear label Gianvito Rossi added to its offerings with a pair of crimson red sock-like heels that are made from a smooth lace material. The heeled boots hit just below the middle of the calf and offer an elegant edge to any ensemble that they're paired with. A pointed toe contributes to the luxuriousness of the design, as does the thin stiletto heel that's approximately 4 inches high.

Also spotlighted are the Nike Lebron 15s, which boast a colorful cereal-inspired look. The uppers are made from a soft knit material that provides plenty of texture variance, and are finished off with transparent outsoles that add to the modern look.
