Top 6 Shoe Trends From NYFW

There’s only one more thing that’s more important than clothing, and of course, it has to be footwear.

A good shoe can change your life (just ask Cinderella), but more importantly, it is an essential part of a killer outfit.

To celebrate the end of New York Fashion Week, we have compiled a list of our favourite footwear of the upcoming autumn/winter season.

Lace-up boots

Where: Alexander Wang

Bring back those dishevelled looking Doc Martens because they’re back in fashion according to Alexander Wang, albeit with a bit of a twist. Not only did he keep the hardware silver, but the boots also had a huge platform. Short girls, rejoice.

Where: Altuzarra

Where’s that old glue-gun? This one’s a DIY just waiting to happen! Altuzarra made a statement with silver studs embellished on shoes, bags, clothes, and… is there anything else? This is a love affair waiting to happen, again.

Where: Boss

Here comes the fun! Boss broke down all those monochromatic outfits with a pop of morange, especially on shoes and handbags. The heels also look super-sturdy, so there won’t be any tumbles.

Where: Derek Lam

Looks like mules aren’t going away anytime soon. They might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but at least we can agree that there won’t be any pesky heel blisters.

Geometric heel

Where: Jason Wu

While they might not give you any extra stability in the rain and snow, they’re at least pretty to look at. Wu’s geometric heels are more of an Instagram-worthy shoe choice that won’t ever get old.

Where: Michael Kors

Appropriate for the office, rainy weather, and even your boyfriend, there’s no denying that oxfords are a practical trend. Michael Kors sent his down the runway with lots of faux fur and cosy ribbed sweaters.

3 European Shoe Designers To Watch This Season

While we all love a pair of Jimmy Choos and simply can’t go past a pair of Manolo Blahniks, there are some major players in shoe design that you need to start taking notice of right now. These shoe labels are at the forefront of women’s fashion in Europe and any trendsetter would be crazy to pass these guys by.


Vicini and its young creative brand Vicini Tapeet, are one of the most iconic brands in Italy. With designer Giuseppe Zanotti and his 550-strong team in the largest shoe manufacturing district of San Mauro Pascoli, what’s not to love?!

With at least four launches a year of beautifully designed shoes, there is always something spectacular to choose from. Platform pumps with bright colours and metallic metals are so hot in Europe right now, as always.

Baldinini have been making and designing shoes since 1910. Manufactured by hand and now handed down three generations, they have designed and created millions of shoes. It is no surprise that they have continued their bold designs and creative printed fabrics when it comes to their shoe designs; testament to their family’s history of the brand.

Their motto is ‘Baldinini is a code, a permit that allows you to stride confidently and elegantly along the most exclusive fashion paths’. Choose a bold platform wedge with pattern fabrics and you’re sure to be noticed!

Barbara Bui

Barbara Bui Paris is a favourite of many Hollywood superstars such as Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry and Jessica Biel. The brand is renowned for its fashion-forward approach to shoe design, and is adored by many all over the world. It is for this reason that we are excited to note that Liberty Shoes import this beautiful brand in their Sydney store.

An ever-popular design is the tight hugging ankle boots, we can honestly say they make your legs go for days. Barbara Buil’s shoes are the perfect accompaniment to any outfit. These boots are simply divine!
