Three trend themes for 2008/09 Autumn/Winter
22
Feb '08
The main rule for shoe trends next Autumn/Winter is as follows: sportiness remains a key theme but will be translated into clearly more chic, well-groomed and at times even elegant styles next season.

Altogether the new shoe fashion is modern, unpretentious and self-confident. Sophistication is ensured by clear, at times very purist lines and an enormously wide variety of lasts, on the one hand, and by the mix of natural and man-made materials plus matt/shine contrasts, on the other.

Styles and shoe types: Last season's favourites – all manner of high-legged boots – remain in pole position but will increasingly compete with bootees and ankle boots.

Causing a stir here will be new, more feminine boots with platform soles and chunky heels as well as those featuring novel more delicate and sometimes very high heels. Becoming even more important next Autumn/Winter will be court shoes/pumps.

Styles range from almost 'architectural' types with a purist attitude and feminine pumps with wide clasps and details stressing the ankle to high-upper styles somewhere between court shoes and ankle boots.

Ballerinas will stand their ground on new, tiny heels set back under the sole. Pointed lasts will be revisited offering plenty of creative scope for new bootees, ankle-high boots and delicate laced boots.

Even masculine Oxfords, so-called Dandy shoes, are heralding a comeback. Smooth, clean finishes will be just as much in evidence as typically male styles such as brogues and wing tips.
