Stunning Sculptural Heels for Spring/Summer 2023 for Less

The sculptural heels trend is not exactly new, but it is back with a vengeance for Spring/Summer 2023 and the designers went all out. Slip on a pair of these sandals now, because you won’t want to be wearing these fancy heels in the snow. And why not make a statement in a pair of shoes with these unusual, eye-catching heels?

Stunning Sculptural Heels

For spring 2023, designers are offering logo heels, geometric heels, ball shaped heels, bottle shaped heels, and curved sculptural heels, to name just a few. These sandals, mules and pumps for spring are truly works of art and worthy of a designer splurge.

If you find the right pair you will cherish them for years to come. But as usual, there are similar looks available for less, so I also found sculptural heel sandals and shoes for a steal.

The Sculptured Heel Trend Spring/Summer 2023

Take a look at some of the best sculptural heels of the season.

Sphere Shaped Heels

Have a ball in a pair of sphere shaped heels in a strappy style in shiny gold metallic. These Cult Gaia Freya Metallic Leather Ankle-Wrap Sandals wrap up over your ankles for $438. They make quite a statement and no other jewelry is required! But a simpler way to wear the look is with these Kate Spade New York Palm Springs Sandals for $198. The price makes your life simpler too.

Creative director Jonathan Anderson of Loewe has done it again. Last fall his red balloon heel pumps became an internet sensation. This season the Loewe Nail Polish 80 Leather Mules for $1,200 make another fun and whimsical statement. It was difficult to find a close look-alike, but the heels on these Franco Sarto Linley Sandals for only $110 look like a shiny rectangular bottle. (I know this is a bit of a stretch, but you can save $1,090)

Architectural Shell Heels

These gorgeous Christian Louboutin Lipsita Queen Leather Sandals for $995 have the most amazing decorative heels. They remind me of an ancient Greek Corinthian column, only with  modern shell shapes instead of leaves. With their low heel and red sole visible above the sculpted heel (you won’t have to flip your shoes over to prove these are Louboutins), these sculptural heels are well worth the investment. But if you want to try the trend for less, these Katy Perry The Scalloped Shell Slide Sandals are only $109.

Emerald Cut Gemstone Heels shoe trends fountainof30

Emerald Cut Gemstone Heels

These slightly over-the-top Nalebe Aurum 90MM Crystal-Embellished Satin Pumps for $750 combine fancy embellishments with the sculptural shoe trend. Wear them dressed up for cocktails or casually with jeans! Or you can save with these definitely over-the-top and totally fun FSJ Pointed Toe Chunky Block Heel Crystal Pumps, from Amazon for only $70. They have the same emerald green emerald cut embellished heel.

Geometric Floating Sculptural Heels fendi vs jeffrey campbell fountainof30

Geometric Floating Sculptural Heels

The Fendi logo is embedded into the heel of these Fendi First Leather High-Heel Sandals for $1,450. These cool geometric heels have a open wedge shape that make you look as if you are floating on air! But these Jeffrey Campbell Geometric Sandals which have a similar heel, are probably not as comfortable with their thin straps, but you can get the look for $170.

Sculptural Wedge Heel black pumps high low fountainof30

Sculptural Wedge Heel

The curvy sculptural design on these point toe Bottega Veneta Lambskin Wedge-Heel Slingback Pumps for $2,300 are very distinct. In basic black with a gold sling back, these “it shoes” are a wonderful investment for shoe collectors. Or you can see if you like them and invest much less in these black leather Dee Ocleppo Cady Pump, now on sale for $226.85.

Omega or O-Shaped Sculptural Heels fountainof30

Omega or O-Shaped Sculptural Heels

These logo heeled Ferragamo Aglalia Leather Gancini-Heel Sandals for $1,290 make a big statement for spring 2023. You will rock and appear to roll when you walk in these stappy t-straps. But leave it to Jeffrey Campbell again! You can slide into these Jeffrey Campbell Rite Round Square Toe Sandals for only $166.
