Guide to Autumn & Winter 2010 Shoe Trends

Check out our guide to this autumn/winter’s footwear trends!

Last week we highlighted some of the key trends that we expect to see on dedicated fashionistas this autumn. This week we thought we’d cover the kind of footwear you may be considering as an ‘on trend’ addition to your autumn/winter wardrobe.

Buckles and laces

Look out for both lace up boots and buckled footwear this autumn/winter. Buckles and laces add interest to boots and shoes and both are going to be a popular look this year. When it comes to buckles it seems that the motto next season is ‘the more the better’. The only down side, as with lace up boots, is that buckles can make removing your footwear quite a lengthy process!

Furry boots

In the colder months there is nothing quite so comforting as (faux) fur, so you’ll be pleased to know that you can wear furry boots with pride throughout the colder months! Designers such as Chanel, Vanessa Bruno, Dolce and Gabbana and Lanvin have all embraced fur this year. Chanel even have even produced furry handbags to match their furry boot designs!

Thigh-high boots

If you took the plunge last year and bought yourself a pair of daring over-the-knee boots then we are glad to report that these bold items will still be en vogue this autumn/winter. Get yours out of the wardrobe and dust them off for another season.

Colour combinations

During the cloudier months brighten up your feet with colourful shoes! We have seen lots of bright coloured footwear throughout the spring and summer and this trend is set to continue with colours combined for added interest. For a good example of how to wear it check out what Balenciaga has on offer.

Flats and low heels

Phew, a break for our tired feet! While high heels are extremely flattering they can also be hard work. Give your feet a rest this autumn/winter with flats and low heels. Whether you choose Doc Marten style boots, brogues or ballerina shoes there are plenty of on trend options for those who wish to put comfort first.
