Nothing allows you to visualize just how much stuff you own quite like a move, something I happened to do last weekend. As expected, I was shocked to see the pure quantity of pieces I’d somehow stored in my 400-square-foot apartment when I went to pack up my belongings, most of which are fashion related in some way. But the most mind-boggling of all was my shoe collection. Knowing I can’t exactly bring 50+ pairs of sandals, boots, flats, sneakers, and more to my new space, I set out on a closet cleanout of epic proportions, and I didn’t do it alone.
To help me get into the right mindset for the job at hand, I asked a few of my fellow Who What Wear editors to share the outdated shoe trends they are preparing to part ways with this season. And as always, they didn’t disappoint. From chunky, lug-sole sandals to sky-high platforms, see which shoe trends the WWW team isn’t bringing with them into summer. Don’t forget to take notes. I know I did.
