The Latest Trends in Shoes


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 and the same message can be applied to Timberland for men.

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.

Skechers is a well known shoe brand who make amazing kids shoes (as well as for adults!) and can stand the test of time and punishment. Almost every person on the planet has seen someone in Skechers shoes and their range continues to grow.

Shopping Online for the Latest Fashion


Regardless of whether or not you’re looking for the latest dresses or fashion trends out there right now, the odds are pretty good that you are going to spend at least a little bit of time shopping for the hottest fashions online.

And while the entire world of fashion is going to be opened up to you when you decide to shop online (unlike at the local mall or boutique), having all of these options and choices in front of you can turn into a real headache and hassle as opposed to a fantastic asset – if you don’t know exactly what you’re getting into.

Luckily, it isn’t all that hard to track down the hottest fashions of this season (or upcoming seasons) if you know what you are up against, if you know exactly how to search for the best and hottest fashions today, and if you know when to pull the trigger on these purchases. If you want to get a quick head start check out one of our favorites Amuze for the latest fashion and another of our latest finds New York & Company.

We thought so.

Let’s jump right in!

Know exactly what you’re getting into ahead of time

The first thing that you need to do before you even think about shopping online for the latest fashions is to outline EXACTLY what you’re looking for in the first place. For example Athletic-wear (think Yoga, Running, Sportswear etc) then you’re better off starting with a specialist like Fabletics or Nike (of course!) rather than sorting through hundreds of products at a department store).

No, you aren’t going to be able to say that you want a “frilly and light orange – but not too orange – maxi dress from ?? designer for less than $100” all the time, but you are going to be able to have at least a ballpark idea of what you’re looking for to begin with – and that’s what narrows down the sea of options you’re going to have in front of you.

If you’re in the younger generation then we highly recommend you visit PinkIce who have a great range of current fashion. And for the more sophisticated, modern man or woman, we highly recommend browsing the excellent fashion selection at Reiss and also the up-and-coming Gilt.

Without knowing what you’re looking for to begin with, you’re going to end up spending hours and hours browsing all different kinds of online fashion catalogs and never end up putting anything in your cart.

Outline your expectations in advance. Trust us. Once you have them, one of go-to sites for no-fuss, current & reasonably priced products is Ledbury. With years of operation, Ledbury are a household name and offer a great range of men’s and women’s clothing.

Speaking of mens clothing, you cannot miss Haggar who has grown from a manufacturer of men‘s fine dress pants and slacks, into one of the most recognized and innovative apparel brands in the market.

Try to buy at least one season in advance

Secondly, you are going to want to try and buy at least one season in advance if at all possible. Lingerie is another category where it’s easy to buy one season ahead – Cosabella is a great source for bras and lingerie.

Since we are in the middle of summer fashion right now it would be a good idea to look for fall or autumn wear and get a jump on the next season before prices jump through the roof. Boohoo would be a great resource to start with and they have over 2 million Facebook fans so they must be doing something right!

By doing this you’re also going to have a chance to transition effortlessly into the next season without waiting for your online order to arrive – your wardrobe will be ready when you are. It’s a bit of a “pro-move”, but it’s definitely going to help you save a lot of money and a lot of aggravation going full works, that’s for sure.

Fall in love with social media (especially Instagram)

If you are digging for inspiration and just aren’t finding anything that really drives you wild, jump on Instagram and just let your fingers do the walking.

Social media is fantastic for opening up all kinds of inspiration in the fashion department that we might not have ever come across before, letting us know what the fashion latest trends are so that we know exactly what to stay on the lookout for. Skirts, shoes, tops, color combinations and the newest upcoming designers (many of which are sold at Burlington Coat Factory) are all found by hunting through celebrity profiles and are usually a sign of what’s to come.

A regular social media poster that we, along with a few million others follow, is Paulas Choice who are always ahead of the game. With constant posts on mens and womens fashion, Ralph Lauren is a great source for finding out what’s coming up in the fashion world.

Instagram in particular is fantastic because it is all about pictures and short videos, giving us a better look at the dresses or the fashion pieces that we are thinking about snapping up. Not only that, but you’ll also have the chance to contact the person wearing the clothes that you are excited about directly so that you can ask them where you can get your hands on the outfit yourself.

Finally make sure you keep an eye out for the latest accessories, including jewelry. The small things can make all the difference and it’s easy to carry from season-to-season. Zales is one of our favorite online fashion accessory stores and they have a huge fan base who can back us up.

It doesn’t get any better than that!
