Is it just me or are Perspex heels the only type of heel people seem to be wearing these days?? A trend adored by multiple celebrities and possibly fuelled by Kim K supporting her husbands beloved brand YEEZY?? Nothing shoes aka the Perspex or Lucite and ecru-tone piece of minimalist footwear are practically the only heel that seems to exist right now in the world of Instagram influencers and of course us because what would influencers be if they didn’t influence us? Then again who can really blame them when they go with EVERYTHING in EVERY COLOUR AND EVERY SINGLE PATTERN – I mean they are literally transparent, so it would kind of be a crime if they didn’t go with every outfit in your closet. Am I right or am I right? Plus they remind me of Cinderella’s glass slipper and it is every girl dream to be a princess!

The clear heeled shoe has to be one of the most fascinating shoe trends to hit the industry because of their history –  once upon a time, they were synonymous with the stripper look so who would have ever thought we’d see them on the SS19 runway for the likes of Balmain, Christian Dior and Chanel? The world is full of surprises! But like I always say (in almost every blog post at this point) fashion is always evolving and is reinvented time and time again to fit the new generation of consumers aka you and me. We as the new generation are into modernity these days and the Perspex heel is what I and many fashion critics would call futuristic in its style – it literally looks like something out of those into the future films from the 80s. Additionally, we are now living in a society where women are no longer shamed for what they wear nor do they care (well in the western world), they are also in control of their sexualities so of course, the perspex is going to be popular, it is a sexy ass shoe!

The Perspex first hit the runway in 2013 on the MBFW Spring/Summer runways and since then they have only gone from strength to strength increasing in popularity with time. Fast-forward to 2019 and everyone has a pair. If you don’t what are you doing with your life? Now we have boot versions, neon, mules and sandals, the Perspex has truly evolved and you better get your hands on one of these before the end of summer;
