Something is happening to the underside of shoes this season that's got us skipping with delight. White soles have been popping up like spring poppies, as gleaming, rubberized underbellies to some of the year's sleekest shoe styles. Don't be afraid to contrast—whether you go bold, with a black upper and pale sole, or if you'd prefer to wash out with cream coloured bodies and ivory bottoms, there's a pure, white sole to suit every style.
