Top 85 Shoes Trends in March

From Split Toe Leather Mary Janes to Square Tor Ankle Boots

— April 4, 2021 — Eco
This list of March 2021 shoe trends prepare for a multitude or purposes with style in mind. Many of the shoe options are designed for function, performance, respective sports, hybrid design, sustainable purposes, and much more. One of the standout shoes is by fashion house Maison Margiela.

It's iconic split toe Tabi design makes its way onto the signature Mary Jane shoes. It features two tonal buckles around the ankle to keep a wearer's foot comfortably in place and is made from soft black leather throughout the upper. Another notable shoe trend this month is a hybrid design by CamperLab -- the EKI ankle boot is an elevated penny loafer. The silhouette turns the signature model into a high-ankle boot.
