Clear shoes are definitely nothing new. I mean, working girls have been swinging around poles in the see-through stilettos for decades. But we were totally caught off guard when clear heels started to pop on the runways a few seasons ago. The controversial trend has even trickled into mainstream stores. And the wave isn't showing any signs of slowing down.
Some of the biggest brands at New York Fashion Week are on board. Oscar de la Renta (shown above), Alexander Wang, and Prabal Gurung are all betting big on the shoe movement for Spring 2018. And we have to admit that we're not mad at that. The latest clear shoes are much more refined. Think elegant pumps with subtle side panels and single-sole heels that create a barely-there effect.
