Top 100 Shoes Trends in May

From Recycled Factory Waste Sandals to Toggle System Comfy Sandals

— May 31, 2020 — Fashion
The list of May 2020 shoe trends prepare for many different circumstances, including practicality, comfort, athletics, ergonomics, and much more. Notably, the silhouettes designed prepare for the warmer seasons upon us, with the launch of sandals complete in a variety of ways.

KEEN Harvest is one of the brands that dropped sandals with its latest flip-flops made from environmentally friendly perspectives. The speckled soles are constructed from 50% recycled rubber collected from the factory's floor with webbing made from recycled water bottles. Another brand that has an outstanding shoe design this month is none other than Nike. It launched the new Asuna Slides with its notable strap and toggle lacing system to provide comfort and customizable elements.
