For Spring/Summer 2023, SW Head of Design Edmundo Castillo was inspired by the idea of warm-weather adventures — and the freedom and fun associated with them — which he translated into our takes on hottest trends. Ahead, we rounded up our interpretations of the top shoe trends of the season: block heels, wedges, ballet flats, platforms, slingbacks and metallics. Each silhouette is crafted for fashion without sacrificing comfort, making it easy to find the perfect pair for all your summer plans.
"The collection is designed to evoke the freedom, fun and luxury of traveling to the coasts of Europe — with a touch of rebelliousness. Wedges, platforms, block heels and more across all heel heights are easy to wear from daytime to dinnertime to the after-party."
Block-heel shoes are one of the biggest Spring/Summer 2023 trends. Crafted by SW artisans in Spain, our designer block-heel sandals and block-heel slides deliver style and comfort. They are available in a range of heel heights and a variety of designs, including flared block heels, woven block-heel slides, embellished block-heel sandals and more. At once versatile enough to dress up or down and comfortable enough to wear around the clock, our block heels stand to be the most-worn pairs in your warm-weather rotation.
Wedge sandals for women are essential to any spring and summer wardrobe. Our take on the trend ranges from cork wedge shoes to woven espadrille wedges to minimalist strappy wedge sandals to high-fashion Lucite wedge slides. Available in variety of heel heights, from 50 mm to 115 mm, our designer wedges are created with our signature focus on quality and craftsmanship: They are constructed by SW artisans in Spain to elevate any outfit effortlessly while remaining lightweight and comfortable.
Ballet flats are back in a big way. Whether you opt for glam embellished ballerina flats, edgy ballet flats with buckles or elevated slingback ballet flats, our designer ballet flats are a sophisticated way to elevate any outfit without sacrificing comfort. Designed with updated, flattering shapes, they are easy to style with jeans, skirts of any length, with bare legs or scrunchy socks.
Our range of women's platform sandals includes a variety of styles across a range of platform heights. Whether you gravitate towards sky-high platform shoes or opt for glamorous slip-on platform sandals, our designer platforms are specially constructed for an effortless style boost and wear-all-day support.
Slingbacks have made a prominent comeback for Spring/Summer 2023. One of the most classic footwear designs, slingback shoes are at once elegant and feminine. This season, we're introducing a variety of designer women's slingback pumps in multiple heel heights and styles. These include: glamorous embellished slingback heels, modern mesh slingback pumps, kitten-heel slingbacks and Mary Jane slingback block heels. A pair of slingbacks is an equally sophisticated alternative to pumps.
Metallic pieces are a must-have in every year-round wardrobe, and our latest collection houses designer metallic shoes for women that are extra relevant this season. Standouts include: modern metallic flared block heels, ultra-wearable ankle-strap metallic sandals, edgy metallic pumps with buckles, embellished metallic heels, metallic platform shoes and even metallic clutch bags. Wear your metallic shoes as you would a pair of neutral shoes — equally versatile, they offer an added touch of shine and effortless glamour to any look.
