Fall/Winter 2015-16 footwear trends

Monday, 04 August 2014
Get a step ahead in the new season with two directional Fall/Winter 2015-16 footwear styles. As key looks from Trendstop's F/W15-16 Women's Footwear Forecast, both of these must-have styles haven't been seen in previous seasons, so both are likely to continue as mainstream fashion trends for the year ahead.

 

 

 

THE SUPER CHUNKY SHOE

In Paris, we see shoes reinforced with sturdy, super chunky shapes to create a heavyweight appeal for Fall/Winter styling. Thick heels and platform soles add instant height, emphasised by serrated soles, layered designs or cut-out details. Wide straps and hardware features underline the robust look.

 

 

 

CONTEMPORARY 70'S

A key trend from the Milan runways, footwear makes a statement with a fusion of modern design and retro 70?s influences. Earthy tones are key in shades like chocolate and saffron, as seen across boots and heeled shoes alike. Contemporary twists emerge in the form of colour blocking, material mixes and exaggerated proportions.
