Winter 17 Overview

Winter 17 has a strong emphasis on loafers, moccasins & brogues.  The man tailored look appears strong.  I also noted the boat shoe is making a resurgence, updated with metalics and interesting colour combos.

Sports shoes are becoming increasingly popular again with the use of metallics, neon and animal prints.

Boots are from one extreme to the other, short or over the knee, but we will still find the classic knee boot.

Court shoes are taking us back to the fine toe elegant heels offered at all heights.  We will also see the square toe plus the almond toe platforms again from low to medium to the heights that were worn in the 70s.

The colour palates are predominantely cool, the classic black and white, with an emphasis on houndstooth won't go away nor will the animal prints.  Metalics are still making a statement and velvet will be making a strong appearance.  Fun fur trims were also making a statement.
