The Shoe Style Celebrities Never Wore in the '90s
Since everyone is obsessed with what celebrities wore in the '90s, we're diligently stalking old images of celebs from that decade on a daily basis. In doing so, we make many observations, some of which are realisations about what they weren't wearing. Our latest observation is about the shoe style that they avoided, and it happens to be the most popular one of the decade we're currently in: sneakers.
Save for a few exceptions (usually in the form of Kate Moss), it was pretty blatant that celebrities were not into the streetwear look 20 years ago. But they were very into many of the other shoe trends that everyone is wearing today, as history is routinely repeating itself.
Keep on scrolling to see and shop the seven main shoe trends that celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry, and Anna Wintour were wearing instead of sneakers in the '90s.
The Trend: Strappy Sandals
Strappy sandals are the key to the chic '90s minimalist vibe that's so relevant in 2018.
The Trend: Platforms
As polarizing as they may be, there's no denying that platforms were one of the top trends in the '90s, and Gwyneth Paltrow proves that it's fully possible to look chic in them.
The Trend: Kitten Heels
Kitten heels are once again mainstream, and we have '90s Anna Wintour to (partially) thank for that.
The Trend: Simple Boots
Boot trends have undoubtedly evolved since the '90s, when simple and chic was always the name of the game.
The Trend: Wedge Heels
If Sarah Jessica Parker in the '90s doesn't actually make you want to wear wedges, we don't know who or what will.
The Trend: Mary Janes
Mary Janes were celebrities' go-to flats style in the '90s, and Liv Tyler effortlessly proves how sweet they can be.
The Trend: Classic Pumps
Proving that pumps never have and never will go out of style, Naomi Campbell was one of the many '90s It girls who wore them on repeat.
