FW22 Boots: The Full Spotlight!

These boots are certainly made for walking!

For the upcoming season we are witnessing the return of classic boot styles, such as the knee-high boot or the thigh-high second skin look, but we are also offering room to more personal and maximalist styles. Fashionable trends include western boots (+25%) and pointy stiletto interpretations (+47% from last year), as well as more edgy disco-style brats boots (+27%) with ecstatic platforms with a bit of a party feeling.

There is room for phantasy and practicality as well. The colorful kitten heel boots (+18% YoY) are a response to the lockdowns of the past year and have people turning to bright, maximalist color palettes. Similarly, rubber polymer rain-boot styles are updating the classic chunky boot of the past seasons.  The utility-driven piece appears to invade the fashion scene, proving that the “ugly shoe” can hold a bright future within our contemporary environment.


Take a look at the upcoming shapes and design details for boots categories:

Maximal Design.

As seen above, the details of AW22 boots are making sure that this footwear category is making statements. Bright color hues, animal adaptions in form of snakeskin or furry cow or zebra prints are translating RTW trends into this product range as well. The taste for such bold and individualistic styles goes hand in hand with a more positive attitude to life and the possibility to show off shoes again in the real world. Chunky soles will be still relevant, however, colorful and more extreme rubber interpretations will be offering a sense of novelty for the detail. Similarly, the squared trend of the past season will be interpreted in more experimental and extravagant ways. For squared styles this means more boxy looks, sharper edges and platform details.

Make sure to make a statement with your boot range and set on clients becoming more daring and style-conscious with this product when moving forward.
