Milan Fashion Week spring ’20 street style was anything but basic. As fashion’s elite descended upon the Italian city, they suited up in shoes that packed a powerful pop — courtesy of bold colors, prints and embellishments.

Pumps from brands like Jacquemus and Attico, featured extra details that made them stand out, like ornaments and crystals.

Boots were also meant to make a statement. Guests chose colorways like metallic blue, canary yellow and cardinal red that were hard to miss on the gray city streets.

Embossed leathers (logoed or croc-printed) also stood out, as did block-heeled Maison Margiela boots featuring a swirly, rainbow pattern.

Of course, fashion week wouldn’t be complete without the arguable “it” shoe of the season: Bottega Veneta’s mesh pumps.

In addition to the sold-out silhouette — which includes jewelry-like chain embellishment and a trendy square toe — Bottega’s knotted sandals were also present on the Milan streets.

Another favorite among the sartorial savvy, the sandals have a woven upper, a stiletto heel and a ’90s-inspired square toe. While some MFW attendees may have chosen Bottega while en route to the label’s runway show, the brand was trending just as much on the streets of New York and London.

In place of the dad shoe was fashion’s newest flat shoe obsession: the Teva-like sandal. Styles from Prada and Midnight 00 adhered to the comfy trend.
