In case you've missed it, 2019 is less than two weeks away, meaning it's time to start your 'new year, new me' goals and resolutions. Whether you intend to stick with them for the entire year, or forget about them by the end of the month, why not start off strong with a style resolution? Specifically to step up your shoe game.

Plenty of trends have come and gone during 2018, but we partnered with Who What Wear to get the scoop on which styles will stick around in the new year. From fashion directors at your favorite online shops to our own VP of Marketing, these are the styles that you'll be reaching for.


“Your run-of-the-mill stilettos and block heels from 2018 are getting a 2019 makeover with fresh heels in architectural shapes.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle 

Refined Heels

“I’m craving something more refined and in general just trying to move away from the flat-out ‘ugliness’ of 2018. Personally, I’m ready for something a little more refined (and dare I say sexy!) to have a moment.” — Jenny Walton, Fashion Illustrator

Combat boots

“Sock sneakers and sock boots are being replaced by combat boots. Popping up in our top searches we are seeing styles in black leather with chunky soles and a cool-girl detail. Leading brands for the combat boot are Prada and Valentino.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle

Logo Shoes

“We’re seeing a decline in searches for metallic shoes, including a double-digit decline for metallic sneakers. Instead, logos are making their way to shoes and will reign supreme in 2019. You’ll see logos on everything from sneakers to heels from some of our favorite designers like Prada, Gucci, and Versace.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle

Dad Sneakers

“The platform sneaker trend is winding down, with the dad sneaker holding on strong and taking its place for 2019. Styles from Balenciaga and Fila are leading the trend on ShopStyle.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle
