Not all fashion trends are for everyone. Many prove to be screaming for attention but proven unconventional when it comes to everyday wear. Let's be real, not everyone wants to walk around in high-fashion clothing meant to awe on the runway. Those dynamic cuts, sharp angles, and quirky styles don't blend in so well when you're walking your dog or running outside to grab your mail. So, if your purpose for buying a pair of shoes is purely functional, you can add this to the list of fashion trends that aren't worth the money.

However, there are those fashion lovers out there that would do anything to get the latest runway looks. These are the people who love to stand out and own unique pieces that no one else has. Surrealistic shoes are fantastical works of art that definitely made for this kind of fashionista. Many high-end designers are playing with surrealism more and more. From Panconesi to Tomo Koizumi, surrealistic designs are consistently popping up. These designers are also starting to influence everyday fashion, making it easier to snag a surrealistic look. 

Along with other fashion trends that will completely take over in 2023, such as leather and tassels, if you're interested in this funky trend, you might just want to stock up on some of these beauties before they sell out!

Peep toes

Perfect for summer (and Easter), these pink Katy Perry literal Peep-inspired shoes are vibrant and fun. Katy Perry's shoe collection is all about "shoes that turn heads" and boy, do they!

Pair them with a colorful dress or a neutral romper and see how many compliments you get. 

The curlie sandal
