13 Shoe Brands You Should Be Slipping Your Feet Into

Looking down at my feet the other day I realized I've been wearing the same Nike Air Maxes for the past two weeks (summer of the sneaker!). As much as I love them, my attachment is clearly a little too strong. The last time I purchased new shoes was in a last-ditch effort to tackle 10 inches of snow with some Dr. Martens last winter. It's safe to say I've been in need of self-instigating a personal intervention.
The first step towards breaking out of any shopping rut? Be on the lookout for something new. There's always room for more shoes in this world, and luckily, there's no shortage of amazing footwear brands launching their way to the top. Between Instagram fave Nicole Saldana to By Far, the brand that can't stop selling out, here are 13 new labels that'll help pull you out of your sad shoe rut.
There’s a lot of product out there, some would say too much. No doubt this has left you with an overwhelming set of questions about the latest must-haves. Luckily we’ve got answers. At Refinery29 we are here to help you navigate this epic world of stuff. All of our editorial market is independently selected and curated by the team.
