fashion. Pumped Up Kicks
Fall 2011 shoe trends are beginning to unveil themselves on the busy city streets
As the months start to grow colder, the shoe styles get hotter
From patent leather to suede, this season boast a rainbow of colors and fabrications. The chunky heel or accordian wedge updates the mary jane style bringing this trend to modern heights.
No longer does the old-fashioned worker boot require the accompaniment of a hard-hat. Imagine 1900s grunge, updated for the girl who would rather wear boots than heels…with pretty much any outfit.
The Brogue is a style of low-heeled shoe or boot traditionally characterized by multiple-piece, sturdy leather uppers with decorative perforations (or “brogueing”) and serration along the pieces’ visible edges.
This fall fashion-statement-of-a-shoe can trace it’s roots back to before the oxford-style was considered menswear inspired. Originating in Scotland and Ireland, they were constructed for outdoor use, allowing the wearer to cross wet terrain.
Who would have thought, huh?
Carried over from summer, fringe detail on shoes and boots provide the perfect rebel edge to your ensemble of old rocker tees and distressed denim, or accentuate your southwestern-chic style.
Requires specific ‘must-have’ characteristics.
A slight wedge adds the perfect height without the heel. Providing the classic fall accessory to be paired with skinny jeans, leggings, tights or corduroys, every pair of leather knee boots needs a lil-somethin’ to lux up that everyday look.
Keep your eyes open! The design is in the details, whether it is subtle stitching around the ankle, or a faint change in texture upon the calf, discover what is unique.
