From the "ugly" footwear trend to the latex and patent leather thigh-high boots trend, and everything in between, there's no denying that there are a lot of interesting choices when it comes to what we will be wearing on our feet this year. However, there is one trend that's really standing out, and that's the futuristic footwear trend.

Every shoe lover has to take note of this trend because it's one that is unique and exciting. Fashion has long been influenced by what we imagine the future will look like: metallics, unique shapes, and sharp angles are just some of the things that come to mind when we imagine the future and it's fashion, and this is exactly what the futuristic footwear trend offers fashion lovers.

Chanel and Dior produced creations that loosely resembled moon boots, while Versace and Maison Margiela opted for bright shiny creations. Gucci produced interesting flatforms, while Louis Vuitton made use of unique shapes and snakeskin for a fresh take on the ankle boot.

So, what does the future hold for your feet?

While these shoes aren't electric and won't be able to transport you to another galaxy, they are a great way to create a statement look without trying very hard. There's a wide range of shoes and styles to chose from to suit your style preference, but the general idea here is to make your footwear the focal point of your look — all the shoes are either metallic, bright or make use of very interesting structures which are guaranteed to attract attention.
