About the Shoes Report - The Shoes Trend Report covers the top shoe trends and provides insight into the footwear industry. Trends in shoes, as in fashion, are dynamic, and we’ve seen changes in luxury footwear, like the coveted Manolos, as well as classic shoes: boots, flats, pumps and other heels.

Who It's For - Containing research on mega shoe brands from Nike to Jimmy Choo, as well as smaller, independent labels, our report is for shoe designers, marketers, innovators and retailers looking for ideas and direction in the changing world of consumer footwear. If you are looking to one-up your competitors, our Shoes Trend Report will give you the insight and ideas you need to manipulate emerging patterns and stay ahead in the industry.

You might also consider our CUSTOM Shoes research - For as little as $500 per custom deep dive, our team will curate custom Shoes reports for your project, customer segments and brand. Each custom report is roughly 70 pages with 300 examples, including more specific lists and examples than our off-the-shelf Shoes trend report. [Learn More]

Sample Shoes Pro Trends - Each Shoes PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online shoes articles, videos and images. Examples:

Rise of the Tease Fashions that rest on the border of risqué Implications - Style-conscious consumers are looking for new ways to spruce up their wardrobes without succumbing to the judgments of eccentricity. An inclination to ride the razor's edge of comfort and decency has led to fashions that are daring and skin-baring yet ultimately escape labels of total indecency.

Polka Dot Poise The traditional print is no longer confined to informal, girlish attire Implications - Polka dots, once reserved for informal, schoolgirl attire on the playground, is getting an haute couture makeover. Designers are incorporating the traditional print into elegant products for menswear, dog clothing, interior design and kitchen accessories. No longer indicative of innocence, polka dots are now more readily used by designers.

Pirate Couture The pirate mentality offers a superficial way to resist the mainstream Implications - The popularity of file-sharing and the blurring lines of online property ownership have made it acceptable for consumers to be modern-day "pirates." Fashion is drawing influence from this as designers incorporate a rebellious ethos into their creations to encourage consumers to break the rules and away from the mainstream.

MANimal Animal-inspired menswear give men fashion ferocity Implications - It wasn’t common, until now, to see a pair of zebra sneakers or a leopard pullover designed for a man. However, animalistic clothing and accessories—always a hit with the ladies—are now making their way into the wardrobes of men everywhere. Allowing a man to show off his “wild side,” the emergence of animal-inspired fashions for men also shows how the fashion trends of men and women are constantly converging. While women can revel in men’s watches and boyfriend jeans, men can enjoy animal prints to their hearts’ content.

Social Shoes Cause-driven footwear gives consumers an easy way to show they care Implications - When a brand like TOMS dedicates itself to social causes—and extensively markets its efforts—it’s easy for consumers to fall in step with the brand’s message and purchase those products over others. More people want to do their part—and they want others to see them doing it, especially if it’s something as simple as wearing the right shoes. Being the brand that consumers associate with social causes ulimately adds to the bottomline, making “social washing” a nonissue when it comes to luring more customers.

Branded Graffiti Street artists join forces with brands for an ironic twist on fashion Implications - Graffiti used to be a form of self-expression and commentary; now, it may be a commercial force to be reckoned with. Recognizing the cultural phenomenon of graffiti, major brands—especially footwear brands—are collaborating with popular and infamous street artists on designs, providing customers with items that speak to rebellion, individualism and expression. The purpose of graffiti may never have been to sell products, but that is exactly what it’s doing.
