Top 90 Shoe Trends in February

From Cartoon Cat Children's Shoes to Luxe Sandal Collaborations

— February 20, 2018 — Fashion
These February 2018 shoe trends range from cartoon cat children's shoes to luxe sandal collaborations. When looking at the month's most anticipated sneakers, standouts include Puma's Valentine's Day collection which consists of two iconic footwear styles that are remixed for the romantic holiday -- the 'Suede Platform Trace' and the 'Lead Cat Slides' models.

When looking at the month's more functional or high-tech footwear, standouts include the 'ACBC' customizable travel shoes which guarantee maximum comfort while featuring interchangeable soles and skins that can be altered according to a wearer's mood. Another notable example -- a laser cue shoe developed by Murielle Ferraye of the University of Twente in the Netherlands -- helps reduce Parkinson's disease symptoms by working to stop gait freezing.

Textured Italian sneakers, modern heritage skate shoes and anime sneaker collaborations round off these February 2018 shoe trends and successfully merge style with comfort.
