black timberlands Hot Shoe Trends to Look Out for This Fall
Ankle booties will once again dominate the early parts of the fall season. If you’re looking to make a statement opt for suede. Leather ankle boots will also be big. Look for lots of hardware for a grungier look. Might be seeing a sprinkle of western inspired looks as well.
Combat boots and boots with a lug sole will again be very popular for fall’15. Lastly with the 70s trend very much in effect, tall boots, especially over the knee, will be the wow boot of the season. Details to look for will be fringe, suede, patchwork, and definitely look for them to be fitted.
Sure, how about a long floor duster coat with a pair of fitted over the knee boots!! Or a pair of suede ankle boots with fringe detail to go along with your brand new shearling jacket ready for the cold weather ahead. Or why not rock your hardware bursting black booties with your favorite moto jacket.
What to look for in quality footwear?
One simple and easy way to judge quality footwear would be to feel the upper. Rarely you will find a poorly constructed shoe if it is made with a very soft and luxurious leather. Something else to look for would be how a shoe is bonded to the sole. If glue marks are evident and the bonding just looks sloppy, that would probably indicate low quality. The bond between a sole and a shoe’s upper should look clean, and have a seamless finish.
Keep your shoes clean. You’re probably worried about coming off as some compulsive obsessive, but like anything else you’d like to preserve and keep new, keeping your shoes clean will go a long way.
As the weather changes,
protecting your shoes with a waterproofing agent and keeping your leather shoes well polished is highly recommended.
