Whether you're in the market for a new pair of shoes or you're just curious about the latest and greatest, we're here to let you know which designers are making it big. When it comes to footwear, Google can provide lots of intel, and it turns out people are searching specifics (though of course, there's the occasional "shoes with the red sole" query that always makes us giggle). More often than not, shoe connoisseurs know a red sole signifies Christian Louboutin, and in fact, the brand is already the second-most-searched-for in 2017.
But if that doesn't surprise you, maybe this will: sneaker companies like Common Projects are gaining tons of traction, so you can finally replace your Adidas Stan Smiths, if you're so inclined. And if you're ready for a new Summer shoe, try Kenzo or Givenchy, which offer must-have espadrilles and slides respectively. Scroll for a detailed lineup of the eight labels on everybody's radar and find the accompanying style we predict will make it big.
