Rain, snow or shine: you can be sure the street style stars won’t be wearing practical shoes this New York Fashion Week. The fall ’16 shows will surely promise a number of stylish attendees wearing the hottest shoes on the market. Feeling inspired, we’ve handpicked some statement styles we expect to see on the streets.
Of course, it was all about the Gucci loafer this past men’s season. Showgoers wore the fur-lined style, a major it shoe, everywhere in Milan. This season, we see the Gucci craze continuing with Alessandro Michele’s snake-coil mules.
Aquazzura’s multicolor pompom heels would add major oomph to any outfit (though a snowy forecast ensures they would be majorly impractical). The same goes for Marco de Vincenzo’s fur-detail sandal.
Boots are the most logical choice here, and the current market has a variety of eye-catching silhouettes and prints to choose from. Laurence Dacade’s studded moto boot could be treated as a neutral and paired with anything, while a leopard print Saint Laurent block-heel boot should be paired with a simpler ensemble.
With many running from one show to the next, sneakers are also bound to make an appearance. Dazzling metallic styles from Christian Louboutin and Marc Jacobs are bound to catch the eye of street style photographers.
