Which footwear brand will be your bestseller for spring 14?

Industry insiders share their thoughts.

Style Council

Stuart Conroy

The FitFlop spring 14 womenswear collection is the best yet and we’re already seeing good sell-through. The collection is varied with Oxfords, loafers, ballerinas and a strong range of sandals. FitFlop customers tend to be brand loyal and will often buy more than one pair. The Cha Cha style is the current bestseller.

Gerard Levy

Our best-selling brand so far has been women’s label C Doux, with Chie Mihara (pictured) just behind. C Doux does great lace-up styles and this year’s combinations are fabulous. Brogues with cut-out uppers and contrast toe panels have been the bestsellers. Chie Mihara this season has styles to die for. Favourites have been courts and sandals with chunky heels in tan and green.

Donna Davies

The look this season is more casual and sales of women’s loafers and ballerinas, especially with embellishments, have been strong within our own brand Graceland. Sports luxe is also shaping up to be one of spring’s main trends on the high street, with sales of men’s and women’s casual trainers, particularly Nike and Adidas, already well beyond expectations.

Sarah Taylor

I’m having a fantastic start to the season. My two best-selling women’s shoe brands are Attilio Giusti Leombruni (AGL), an Italian brand in the softest leathers that is a joy to wear and has a great following around Surbiton, and Candice Cooper soft leather trainers in grey. I’ve already put in reorders on both brands.

Tom Briscoe

The suede Derby will be big for men this spring from brands such as Rocha John Rocha. Suede lends itself perfectly to the summer months, and can be worn well in either neutral or brash colours for both a formal and casual look. If the weather is good this summer, Mocks could be a brand to watch out for too.
