With summer just around the corner, it’s time to step into something lighter and a little less clunky. While it may be too early for sandals (and heaven forbid, Crocs), the latest trend on the streets is the perfect choice for these in-between months.

As with many shoe trends of late (think of the Stan Smith phenomenon that captivated our feet for the past six years), the V-cut trend started life at Céline, gradually making its way onto fellow designers’ catwalks such as Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney. And now, the high street is awash with this new cut. From the daintiest stiletto heel to a chunky mule or slip-on flats, you’re sure to find a style of shoe that suits both your taste and comfort levels.

The sharp cut is a fresh update for summer wardrobes, slightly cooler than the classic rounded shape and far more flattering, making this shoe design an easy way to stay on trend this season without straying too far off the cut. Plus, these are an easy transition to make from the depths of your winter boots without having to bare your whole foot just yet so you can hold off on that summer pedicure for a little while longer.
