2018 Autumn Winter Footwear Trends

As the summer is coming to the end, it’s good to prepare yourself for the upcoming autumn/winter season. After a bit of the research, we put together a list of what we think will be the top trends for 2018 AW. Of course, as per usual, we will also suggest some less expensive alternatives for the trend setting big luxury brands.

Block heels are still in

Well if you think of it, they have been in for a while now, and I think the reason is that they are the most comfortable high heels possible. Low block heel will give you good balance, nice comfort, but will also improve your posture and finally, will give you that extra cherry on the top for your look.

Our alternatives:

BLACK PLATFORM CLEATED ZIP FRONT ANKLE BOOT £45.00 by Pretty Little Thing
HIGH-HEEL LEATHER BOOTS DETAILS 119.00 GBP by ZARA
FABRIC ANKLE BOOTS WITH METALLIC HIGH HEELS DETAILS 69.99 GBP by ZARA
NLY Shoes – Knee High Boot – £10.95

Well, this one is the least favourite of mine, however, as I am not a shoemaker or shoe designer working for a huge luxury brand, I cannot stop it. Yes, Kitten Heels are back on, not sure why and how, but they do not look good, they are not comfy and I just do not understand them.

Our alternatives:

LEATHER ROUNDED-HEEL MULES DETAILS 69.99 GBP by Zara
PIN-HEEL MULES DETAILS 49.99 GBP by ZARA
NLY Shoes Bow Pump £11.50
NLY Shoes Stretchy Boot – £13.50
What about the colours?

Brown is going to be popular, also we noticed few brands going for bright, unusual colours such as sky blue or banana yellow. Blacks, lipstick reds and patent whites have their place too. Finally, there a good bunch of designs trying to combine few colours or even few pallets at once (and there are some winners, some losers for sure).  

Our alternatives:

Red oversized gold tone buckle sandal £45.00 by River Island
red flared heel sock boots £40.00 by Missguided
LEATHER STILETTO-HEEL ANKLE BOOTS DETAILS 89.99 GBP by ZARA
What about the boots?

Calf length, booties and of some over-knees are the ones to look for. Also, we noticed some brands going back to the cowgirl/cowboy boot look.

Our alternatives:
