Who likes shoes? I love shoes, and although today I only buy what I really need, my passion for shoes continues to be huge so I can’t get enough of seeing what’s new each season. And in this area, I must say that I have incorporated a basic principle regarding the purchase of shoes, boots, or other footwear, which is to always make a good “investment”. It no longer makes sense to buy in another way. What are the winter trends for shoes?
A good pair of shoes or boots make all the difference. The right choice of a particular model can build or destroy our outfit. No less important is the fact that the shoes we choose to be part of our outfit, support our entire posture, and the way we walk or are in a certain pair of shoes, influences how we feel with them, and that shows.
Every season, and in case I need it, I carefully select what I’m going to buy. I consider what investment I intend to make, what purpose does my purchase serve, and what need am I supplying? What is the fundamental characteristic that the “new” pair of shoes should have, or how do I count on wearing them on a daily basis. And how I feel wearing them if I don’t feel well, even if they are beautiful to die for, they won’t go home with me, that’s for sure.
So, if a new season starts and I’m going to buy some shoes, because I really need them, I take into account what’s new and the trends of this year. Does it seem nonsense? But it is not, because in shoes and in clothes, what I choose follows the rule of complying with what my “personal style” allows. If it is not compatible, then it will not be part of my choices either. But of course, some trends of the season may be in line with what I’m looking for, meeting the look I intend to recreate for myself. In that case, I will buy, without doubts or hesitations.
So, what are the trends? I have excellent news, we can use almost everything we already have in our wardrobes. Isn’t it fantastic? The designers considered almost all styles of shoes and boots for this Winter, although some trends have been seen more than others, and there is some consistency in what will be more fashionable this year.
White was the color that made a splash and that promises for this year, it was possible to see on the runway shows, the use of white in boots and shoes, and in various shades of white, such as ivory or pure white.
The high boots are one piece that we’re not missing in this winter’s collections, with little surprise, not least because in fact, they have not gone out of fashion. In this collection, they come in unicolor or colored versions, either leather or varnish, glossy, or adorned.
In shoes, we will find ornaments, such as bows, fringes, straps, and chains, the latter being one of the major trends of this year. The chains can be heavy and wide or light and thin with one or more overlapping, the proposals are incredible. The well-known kitten heels, pumps, and “stilettos” remain current Burberry’s proposal brings a mix of boot and shoe with an opening at the back and a ribbon that runs through the ankle, it is a combination of “slingback” with a boot which the brand calls point-toe “mules”. A different aesthetic, but it works perfectly.
