Clear perspex shoes have been enjoying major time in the spotlight ever since they first made their appearance on the runway for Spring/Summer 2016 when Loewe brought PVC out in a glorious way on some of the season’s most coveted heels and bags. For Spring/Summer 2017, Yeezy made a massive case for perspex shoes by adding clear thigh-high boots to a significant number of its looks – although in this case the designs proved to be quite dangerous and sent Kanye West’s knitwear-clad models stumbling down the runway and fainting in the heat.
Fast forward to 2017 and celebrities around the world have been spotted sporting this look, with most of the “It” girls on your Instagram feed getting on board. To the delight of many, high-street brands have also flooded the market with more affordable alternatives to the runway versions.
However, PVC does have a reputation of being one of the lesser sophisticated materials, and as a result this new footwear trend has been facing some backlash since its debut on the “It” crowd.
