5 Shoe Trends to Keep You Warm
“These boots are made for walking”: though not always an accurate description of foot fashion, it certainly does ring true for this autumn and winter’s shoe trends. And one thing’s for sure: they’re not only practical for long walks – they’ll also keep boredom at bay.
Above and beyond
Pretty Woman flashback: properly long boots – including over-the-knee styles – are finally making a comeback. Bottega Veneta’s over-the-knee boots come in russet and with wedge heels, while Louis Vuitton has opted for black leather with colourful elastic sides and slip-resistant tread.
Buckles abound this autumn and winter. On the flat boots by Church’s you’ll find two over the laces, and if that’s not quite enough then try the long boots by Prada, featuring five buckles from toe to thigh.
What better to beat the cold temperatures than cuddly, comfy, fluffy fur? Slip-on styles are in stores now – either the elegant version by Brunello Cucinelli or the more colourful take on the theme by Prada.
Two-tone ankle boots are back with a vengeance this year. Emporio Armani has combined elegant black with a bright blue stripe, while Louis Vuitton has married plain black with Monogram brown.
If you’re looking for something truly eye-catching, then head to Saint Laurent. Who could tear their eyes away from the courts with a striking blue YSL logo heel? Or for something more opulent, go to Prada for a combination of gold beads and pretty pink satin.
