Finding the perfect pair of shoes can be overwhelmingly difficult for just about anyone. Not only do you have to worry about how they make your feet look, but for most of us, comfort also plays a major role in our decisions. When you’re also trying to keep up with the latest trends, however, finding the right pair of shoes can be even more difficult. Here are some of the different shoe trends that you can expect to see in 2009.
There are several different shoe colors that you can expect to see this year. The first is, of course, black. Since black is so versatile, it’s essential to include at least one pair of black heels in your collection. It’s likely that you’ll probably opt for more than one pair if you love shoes, however. Metallic silver will also be a hot color for shoes this year. It’s a great choice because it tends to go with other metallic colors, such as hot pink and electric blue. If you’re looking for shoes to wear with that little black dress, silver shoes are a great choice. Finally, bold colors in a darker shades will be very popular this year. Grape purple and forest green are two good examples of colors that you will see during 2009.
In addition to the popular colors that will be available for you to choose from when purchasing shoes, several different patterns will also be very popular this year. Checkered, polka dot, snakeskin, and patterns that consist of lace will all be very popular shoe trends in 2009. Although these patterns are going to be more common among flat shoes, you will also find heels which have the same patterns. Of course, solid colored shoes will be more popular than patterned ones.
Although platforms were beginning to make a bit of a comeback in 2008, you will see them just about everywhere that you go during 2009. They will be the most popular shoe style for you to choose from. The trend of flat shoes will be dying down throughout the year, though you will still see some people wearing them occasionally.
Booties, which are a combination of heels and boots, started to become popular during the winter of 2008. They will continue to be popular throughout most of the year. Since they look like boots, they are suitable for winter, but the fact that they are also heels makes them a great choice for all year round. Booties are one 2009 trend that shoe lovers won’t want to miss out on!
These are just a few of the many shoe trends of 2009. Not only will your feet look great, but you’ll be sure to look stylish in just about any of these shoe styles! Keep in mind that there is never a reason that anyone should have to be a slave to fashion, of course. Be sure to express your individuality whenever possible.
