These boots were made for walking— and taking your customers through the colder season. Versatile, timeless, and a staple in every wardrobe, a good pair of boots is an investment many customers will be looking to make in the following weeks. As a retailer, having a good selection of boots available in store is essential to meet the demand and face the winter season with enough offer to please all tastes. To help you restock for the months ahead, we rounded up six boots trends for 2022: these are the boot styles your clientele will want.
The cowboy boot is the shoe trend that keeps on giving. Big on the catwalk in the ‘70s, loved by celebrities in 2005, and owned by every fashion girl in the early 2010s, it never seems to go out of fashion. In 2022 it’s back stronger than ever, already spotted as the star of many great street-style looks, both in its full-length version and the ankle boot one.
Sturdy, cool, and able to toughen up any outfit: biker boots are some of the most trending shoes of the season, offered by luxury houses and small local brands alike. The youngest part of your clientele will especially be after a pair of these trendy boots, ready to be worn with casual jeans-and-T-shirt outfits, floaty mini dresses, or other playful combat boot looks.
Not the most comfortable option, but surely the chicest: stiletto heels are bringing this season’s fall boots to new, unexplored heights. To be worn with trousers, skirts, and dresses, they are great as going-out boots yet perfect for formal days at the office. Refresh your closet with classic black suede options or keep it fun with more funky styles, focusing on textile details and exposed stitches.
Above and Beyond
If you recently asked yourself “are tall boots still in style?”, the short answer is: Yes. Loved for their elongating effect, knee-high leather boots are going nowhere this winter. We had already included the trend in and we’re proposing them again in this round-up of best boots for winter. We love them on bare legs, with mini skirts or dresses, but they look good with color-contrast stockings as well.
Not for partying only, metallic boots have walked down the AW catwalks with all sorts of looks. From sporty flat boots to heeled ankle boots, a reflecting metallic glaze has coated so many types of boots for women this season. They’re fun, eye-catching, and able to bring some light to the darkest winter days. Their shiny style will also stand out perfectly.
Among the trending shoes for 2022 we couldn’t leave out Chelsea boots. They’re not a proper trend, but rather a carry-over from year to year— always loved, always worn, always purchased. A good selection of Chelsea boots will be a timeless investment for your closet, with customers buying into this category season after season.
