Fall 2013 Footwear Trends

I know we are in the thick of spring and it’s difficult to even begin to think about fall footwear trends until the long summer days are behind us but I thought I would give you a slight head start to Fall and Winter footwear trends.

Back in February I was lucky enough to attend MAGIC, the World’s Largest Apparel Trade Show, where I got a glimpse into the upcoming trends. I already wrote Spring/Summer 2014 Trends and now I thought it would be fun to explore what footwear we might be buying later this year.

These trend boards we’re created by Fashion Snoops, a global trend forecasting company. Part of their role as the official trend partner of MAGIC is the creation of these informational trend galleries that are placed throughout the Sourcing Show.

The Flat

Take a step down from high-heels and into the seasons top fashion flats. Smoking slippers, traditional loafers and innovative ballet flats make for a perfect assortment this fall.
