We have formally stomped our way into a new guard of footwear: the Mary Jane system. She’s chunky and she’s difficult, and she’s also sweet and demure — but on her very own terms and in her own twisted way. You could say the mary jane lugsole is the fitting lovechild involving 2021’s two largest shoe traits — the ballet flat and the chunky loafer — and it can be no shock that vogue folks are clamoring for these strapped-and-stacked sneakers. Not only do they right away Y2K-ify any glance with that late ’90s sky-higher flatform building, but they also make whatsoever you’re donning a tad playful and girly. (But not much too girly.) And, judging from the wide wide variety of models out there, this ladylike system is mounting to new heights for spring.
