Last year we embraced the comeback of the 90’s mule and we paid homage to the dads in the form of the ‘chunky dad sneaker’. So, what does the autumn season have in store for us in the way of footwear – we have some notorious revivals from the likes of the ever-cool combat boot and the power pump. This season’s trends also include something sparkly for those of you that prefer your feet embellished.
The boot is synonymous with Autumn/Winter and this year its all about the pretty pointy boots with laces. Opting for bright tweeds or pastel colours can bring a bit of much needed spring colour to those dark winter days.
1. Simone leather ankle boots, £580, Rejina Pyo at Net-A-Porter. 2. Lace up leather ankle boot, £95.99, Zara. 3. Multi Coloured Tweet Lace Up Boot, £895, Brock Collection at Moda Operandi. 4. Black leather lace up boots, £89.99, Zara. 5. White leather lace up boots, £700, Miu Miu at Net-A-Porter.
The last few months of the year come with its fair share of celebrations and festivities so this shoe trend couldn’t be more fitting. Metallics and bejazzelled shoes are very much on trend so why not give your feet the spotlight they deserve and opt for a statement shoe in gold, silver or better yet some encrusted jewels.

You can never fail with a classic pump, great as a daily go to when teamed up with a pair of jeans and blazer. The power pump is back in a variation of colours, finishes and heel styles so take your pick to add to your collection. Two great variations to try that are very on trend are the square toe and the flared stem heel.
