Stepping into Style: A Year-End Wrap-Up of Footwear Trends 2023, Featuring the Rise of Boston Clogs and the Timeless Appeal of Uggs

As we bid farewell to another fashionable year, it's time to take a stroll down the memory lane of footwear trends that captivated hearts and adorned closets in 2023. From the streets to the runways, this year saw an eclectic mix of styles, with some surprising comebacks and the emergence of new favorites.

The Resurgence of Boston Clogs:  One of the biggest surprises was the unexpected comeback of the Boston Clog, a classic style that has found its way back into the hearts of fashion enthusiasts. Brought back on the scene by young influencers, this hippie classic has been all the rage and is still nearly impossible to get your hands on.

Uggs - A Timeless Icon: The updated version of the Ugg Tall Classic including the ultra mini, ultra mini platform, and the classic mini have been rolling strong for the second year in a row. These cozy yet trendy footwear staples are standing the test of time and will continue to be hot in 2024.

The Year in Sneakers: From futuristic designs to retro revivals, sneakers continued to dominate the footwear landscape in 2023. From chunky soles to distressed leathers and fun colors, sneakers continue to have their moment and now are easily paired with dresses for a day to night look.

Eco-Friendly Footwear This year, sustainability took center stage in the fashion world, including the realm of footwear. We look forward to exploring this category a bit deeper in 2024 at Shoe Fly.

As we wrap up the year, it's evident that the world of footwear is as dynamic as ever. From the unexpected return of  Boston Clogs to the timeless allure of Uggs and the ever-evolving sneaker culture, 2023 has been a year of diverse styles and exciting trends. As we step into the new year, please continue to shop your footwear locally. The benefits you get from buying shoes in store as opposed to online far outweigh the convenience of shopping from your phone. Shoes are so important to the health and longevity of your body. We strive to make sure your shoes fit properly and you have all the knowledge needed to make good shoe purchase decisions - these are benefits you cannot obtain when shopping online.

To everyone who supported Shoe Fly this year we sincerely THANK YOU - by shopping locally you support someone's dream. It is becoming increasingly more difficult to be an independent, locally owned store and for your support we thank you.

If you can't shop with us in person you can always shop us online at and please stay tuned for new exciting ways to shop us in 2024.
