Here are the shoe trends for 2024 that French women will wear the most

Two things we’re all interested in are French women and shoes, so let’s talk about both. I follow the trends worn by French women very closely, and one that has definitely caught my attention lately is the current shoe trend: patent leather.

Patent leather shoes (and accessories in general) have become increasingly popular over the past few seasons, but this trend still feels very fresh. As soon as influential brands like Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Prada, and The Row started adding patent leather shoes to their shoe list, it seemed like every other brand followed suit. French women, drawn to classic and elegant items, were quick to take an interest in the patent leather shoe trend, especially Mary Jane pumps and pointed-toe she-shoe pumps.
