What new footwear trends have you seen for autumn 13?

Industry insider’s share their thoughts.

Style Council

From what I’ve seen so far, there is more variety on shapes and it also appears pointed toes are finally making a comeback. There’s lots more variety on colour too. I’ve seen everything from Bordeaux (Dispair, pictured) to orange, green and navy.

Boots will continue to dominate this autumn and winter, with biker (Schuh, pictured) and military styling being particularly strong. Studs are evolving and will be used in new ways, and embellishment will become key. On heeled product there will be platforms, but single soles will continue to gain importance.

It’s been a disappointing season as far as newness is concerned. Footwear trends are definitely lasting longer than clothing - from what we’ve seen people are continuing to focus on boots and sports (Ash, pictured). Use of colour but in muted tones has been a refreshing change.

Neil Steptoe

I don’t see a great deal of movement style-wise for autumn 13, it’s mainly about materials and colours on existing kits. There’s a lot of mixing of fabrics and lots of camo, ponyskin, scotch grain and high-shine leathers, as well as more autumnal colours. There’s still quite a bit of the coloured sole/welt happening too (Anatomic, pictured). The newer things out there are the dress slipper, the heavy sole and a little bit of the Western boot, although that might be stronger for autumn 14.
