On the catwalks we have also spotted them on the garments, but the chains will be the new rock detail that will dominate the accessories of the cold season. Much loved in the thinnest and most delicate version, ankle straps are reinvented on the N. 21 shoes, giving a more decisive and confident character to the classic and refined décolleté or slingbacks.
Among the boots, all the spotlights will be on rainproof models that will be proposed and produced in many versions, especially in the more eccentric ones, such as the total white with cream details and the shaped sole by Versace, or in pastel colors, such as the big bubble boot seen by Bottega Veneta.

Boots: from the city to the mountains
As for any self-respecting cold season this year too boots will again be the most popular footwear, and it is easy to understand why: they can be worn in many different ways, both combined with trousers, softer or more tight-fitting, and with more or less dry dresses and skirts.
On the catwalks we saw them parading in all colors, heights and silhouettes. But the real novelty of this year we spotted her from Tory Burch and they will be floral, patterned or more simply embellished boots with just a few details which will be flanked by wild and bold animal prints, such as the particular in cream-colored python proposed by Public Desire on a Texan with a high leg.
The cuissardes model in suede remains the most loved and sought after, perhaps thanks to its indispensable versatility.

For those who prefer a sportier and faster version will be the hiking boots, the classic mountain boots who in record time have redone their look to become the new object of desire.

70s mood for shoes with heels

The carefree fashion of the 70s makes itself felt again, and it does revisiting and bringing back the iconic platform shoes, square toe and characterized by dizzying heights with shaped or sculptural heel, like those seen by Celine.

Among the fall / winter 2020/2021 shoes there will also be many mules, slippers and moccasins. Yes, you got it right: for this autumn the catwalks have consecrated both the shoe and the open sandal. This is because the climate changes we are experiencing have shown that the colder winter is slowly disappearing.
If you think that uncovering your feet in December or January is a gesture of extreme courage, you will change your mind, because the new combo to show off will be match your shoe with a pair of high socks (the terry variants are perfect) or thick and colorful tights, preferably with some particular detail, like the combination proposed on the Simone Rocha catwalk.

I’m at the center of an interesting chat since the various fashion weeks around the world ended. Industry experts, fashion bloggers, fashion editors and all the fashion industry insiders have asked themselves a big question when on the catwalks they noticed that among the fall / winter 2020/2021 shoes they were missing, the sneakers.
This year, the designers have literally turned the cards on the table: in their looks, in their place, they have combined the most elegant little boys, even if the models of the sneaker are not lacking. Coach focuses on autumn and prefers follow the path of simplicity both in form and in colors, slightly venturing on the combinations of shades and materials that make up the sneakers.
The total white sneaker proposed by River Island is also inspired by clean shapes, where the red block crossed by a line gives a touch of color to the model.
