There’s nothing like the start of a new season to inspire me to hit refresh in every facet of my life. Whether it’s enlisting in a new fitness class, redecorating my apartment for the fifth time, or cleaning out my closet, I’m ready for a major glow-up. First up? My closet. Well, more specifically, my shoe wardrobe. With all the fresh trends on deck for the rest of 2022, my attention is focused on all the new styles I want to try during the year ahead, but naturally, that also means I’m putting a few outdated shoe trends on the chopping block to make room.
Below, I’m highlighting the six styles that I’ll be retiring and sharing the new shoe staples that are replacing them. Of course, this is based on my own personal preferences, and you should take these recommendations with a grain of salt—by all means, wear what makes you happy. But you’ve found yourself here whether it’s in the interest of refreshing your closet this year or out of morbid curiosity (hey, no judging), so with all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the shoe trends I’ll be phasing out for the remainder of the year.
