Early Fall Shoe Trends: Hardware Details

Gynnie by Charles David: Golden Studs?  That sounds too good to be true.The fashion community prepares for seasons far in advance. The Fall 2009 pieces, for instance, were catwalked last winter.  Although I understand why it’s necessary to show fashion lines so early (so that distributors, ready-to-wear-ers, and marketers can do their thing), it does seem strange that designers should be mum now, when women are actually beginning to think about what they’ll wear this fall and winter. And so, all this week, Shoeflyer has been featuring fall trends, to help you get ready for the chilly days ahead.  At least you have one consolation as the summer fades:  fall and winter mean you can wear more leather!  Today’s trend is all about leather (or imitation leather).  Perhaps due to the tough economy, designers have been pairing leather with plenty of biker/punk flair, including buckles, safety pins, grommets, and hooks.

When these details appear on footwear, the result is often called aggressive shoes.  These shoes look like they could kick some major arse.  Chains, hooks, holes, and leather wrapped like bandages are appearing on aggressive shoes, as mekap highlights at Pumpsicle. If you want to get in on this trend, look for shoes with something to get off their chest, so to speak.  If adjectives like fierce and angry come to mind, you’ve probably found the perfect shoe to toughen up your fall wardrobe.

Here are a few aggressive shoes from the Shoeflyer collection; enjoy! And remember that the 30% off sale is still happening at Shoefly.comThat’s 30% off everything you buy. (The discount is taken at the point of purchase, so don’t worry if you don’t see it right away… it will appear when you check out.)
