It is definitely the time of the year when we want to be ready for winter trends, especially if it’s in matter of shoes.
The 2019-20 ready-to-wear collections of the most popular brands have certainly reserved some new surprises, but at the same time they have given us the opportunity to see which trend shoes have survived from the previous year with undeniable success.
So, here is a small summary of the must-have footwear, directly from the catwalks of the fall winter 2019-2020 season:
HIGH LEATHER BOOTS:
There are so many types of boots that will characterize this season. First and foremost that of the high leather boots, super proposed on the catwalks of brands like Celine, Jacquemus, Max Mara and Saint Laurent, in many natural colors, tight or flabby shaped.
This model, together with the cuissard one, was one of the most proposed on the catwalks, from Chloè to Valentino, in different materials and shapes. Its characteristic is that it wraps the ankle like the fabric of a sock up to the calf.
SQUARE HEELS & SQUARE TOE:
Loewe, Proenza Schouler, Chloè, kenzo, Balenciaga are just some of the many brands that have proudly brought back the square toe and heel, generally associated with the aforementioned model of boots. The most glamorous variant of this trend consists of FLARED BLOCKY HEEL, which we probably already know but which we will continue to appreciate, thanks to its strategic comfort and its eccentrically refined look.
Not that we had missed it particularly, but the return of the platform has not being so dramatic. The models of the fall winter 2019-20 collections by Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Off-white and Michael Kors and many others were a happy demonstration of that.
LACE UP BOOTS:
Timeless pillars of the Punk subculture, lace up boots are the winter comfort zone that no one would want to give up. Among the most interesting models we can mention those proposed by Alexander Mcqueen, Prada and Dior.
SPORTY RUBBER SOLE:
A trend born from sneakers, later extended to a wide range of shoes. The thick rubber sole was one of the most prominent figures in the winter collections of this year (Burberry, Alexander Mcqueen, Bottega Veneta and so on..)
To confirm that the vaguely vintage atmospheres are a constant in the world of fashion, in this category of trend shoes we find above all the Mary Jane, like those proposed by Miu Miu, Anna Sui and Dolce and Gabbana, and the Victorian style lacing, saw on some boots by Kenzo, Dion Lee and Balmain.
