Shoe trends for winter

Farewell sweet summer sandals, hello toasty treads! If you’re planning your next winter shoe purchase, look no further than these great cool weather trends.

Woman wearing boots and a white coat

Winter fashion doesn’t have to mean bulk and frumpiness. Team some cosy thermal underwear with tights and a fabulous coat and you have one hot outfit. As for your feet, well you may have to move those killer heels to the back shelf, but it’s time to treat your tootsies to a fabulous pair of boots or wedges. Opt for dark or neutral shades like black, chocolate, grey or caramel and luxe fabrics like suede or leather. But before you hit the shops, make sure you check out these popular trends in winter shoes.

Cute embellishments

Your winter booties don’t have to be boring. This season there are plenty of cute details pumping up the glam factor. Look out for feature buckles, vintage lacing or faux fur details.

Ankle boots

An ankle boot is the perfect compromise of comfort and class. The heel will make your legs look great while the shorter length will mean you can still wear your favourite clothes without your shoes dictating your choices. Ankle boots are also making their mark teamed with opaque stockings and short dresses.


The wedge has stuck around for another year, with many new options hitting the shelves. A pair of classic black suede wedges look fantastic with dark jeans or a glamorous evening gown.

Knee-high boots

These old faithfuls will never go out of style. The key to a clever purchase of knee-highs is all about picking quality materials. A durable pair of leather boots will look great over skinny jeans or teamed with a feminine, flowing dress.


Channel your inner schoolgirl with a sweet pair of leather brogues. These comfortable shoes are great for everyday use and won’t have you clutching your damaged feet after a day of wear. Some great heel versions are also making their way onto the shelves this winter.

Leopard print

This winter, it’s all about bright, fun prints. Fashion gurus are proclaiming it the season of the print clash, so why not give your outfit a kick-start with a patterned shoe? Leopard print shoes are making a comeback, particularly in the latest moccasin styles.


The ultimate in comfort and cool, these slip-on shoes are perfect for breezy days. Team them with a vintage dress or a pair of skinny jeans for a casual-cool look a la Alexa Chung. Keep the colour neutral to keep the attention on your clothes.
