We look at men’s footwear trends every season to advise where to invest for your wardrobe. Anchoring your wardrobe every day, footwear is something you don’t want to compromise on. The trainer industry significantly increases each year with the average young person owning six pairs. Industry analytics reported the market was worth £78.59 billion pounds in 2021, as we all invest in trainers to cement our status.
Trends have also recorded a switch from fashionable footwear to function. Slide-on ‘inside outside’ shoe styles have spiked with Birkenstock Boston’s and UGG Tasman’s seen across all social platforms from a-listers to influencers alike. Looking at the styles to invest in this season we run through the menswear trends you need to know about.
After years of predominantly trainers and slipper-type footwear, formal footwear is on the rise. According to NPD Group sales of traditional dress shoes in both men’s and women’s fashion have seen double-digit percentage growth in 2022. This includes the classic men’s loafer. With chunky styles and two-tone colour ways amongst the selection, men are opting for a traditional loafer this season.
