If you are a real shoe nut (and more and more of them are coming out of the woodwork each day), the odds are pretty good that you’ve been keeping apprised of all the latest shoe trends out there – and might even be trying to get ahead of the “next big thing” in the world of footwear.
Well, we aren’t going to be able to give you any inside information as to what people are going crazy about strapping to their feet in the future, but we are going to give you a bit of a peak into the latest trends in the world of footwear today.
If you’re just after a quick start on making a purchase on the current fashion trends shoes, then checkout ShoeDazzle. With a few simple questions, you’ll be presented with some excellent recommendations which are continually being updated to match the fashion season.
Shoes are ALWAYS changing
The important thing to remember is that the world of footwear is always evolving, always changing, and always innovating.
Even dress shoes (as “standard fare” as it gets in the world of footwear) are now being manufactured out of different materials, using different – yet still classically inspired – designs, and becoming more and more creative. GH Bass & Co are a great example of using classic designs, in modern styles and have stood the test of time.
This is a reflection of the modern footwear trend in general, and something that you’re going to definitely have to get used to if you aren’t already.
Famous Footwear is a perfect example of an online retailer who stays with the trends and continually adds to their catalog of mens & womens shoes to buy online. They’re usually the first online shoe retailer we visit to check on the prices before comparing to others.
Current Trends Mens Shoes are getting Simpler while Women’s shoes are getting Crazier
As far as shoes for men are concerned, the trend here in 2016 (and for the foreseeable future) is definitely for these shoes to get simpler and simpler as far as design and aesthetics are concerned.
Men’s fashion is very minimalist these days, focusing instead on quality as opposed to loud designs that draw as much attention to them as possible (sometimes not in the best ways). Footwear for men very much reflects this kind of approach, which is why shoes for men have gotten so streamlined in just about every way possible.
Think of TOMS Shoes in their minimalist approach and you’ll understand where the shoes for men community is headed. And for the man who likes to venture outdoors, then you can’t go past the shoes at Cabela’s
Shoes for women, on the other hand, are definitely trending in the opposite direction.
These shoes are getting crazier and crazier (and we mean that in the best of ways), with some of the most inventive and creative shoes hitting the market in the spring of 2015. A lot of these shoes look like they belong on the catwalk as opposed to being sold in the Zappos shoes department, but it’s part of a women’s fashion trend that is focusing more on color, pop, and personality than anything else.
Take Lord & Taylor for example, they offer a great range of the latest footwear and fashion for women and it’s all done tastefully.
Running shoes and training shoes are taking advantage of technical fabrics and unique engineering
Shoes specifically designed for training remain very much the same as they always have, with one major exception – these shoes are now taking advantage of technical fabrics and unique engineering designed to squeeze every drop of performance out of athletes as possible.
These shoes have been designed to support athletes in just about every way imaginable, giving them the kind of perfect footfall that they need to produce a repeatable step so that they never have to worry about sacrificing any of their athleticism because of the shoes they have on their feet.
Supercomputers all over the world are working on new designs based off of biometric information collected from athletes around the globe, and that information is being used to engineer these shoes today.
A quick watch of one of our favorite athletic shoe retailers is Footlocker who are constantly updating their massive range of shoes. Keep an eye on them for great deals.
Kids shoes are still a lot of fun!
Of course, shoes for children remain some of the most adorable options in the footwear world, and likely always will.
These shoes are built around two key concepts – that they should be as much fun as they can be but they should also be as safe and as durable as humanly possible. After all, children are known to rip through multiple pairs of shoes just as quickly as they can, and you want to be sure that you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
