Sample Boots Pro Trends

Each Boots PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online boots articles, videos and images. Examples:

Generational Footwear Instead of fit or function, brands use time periods as inspiration Implications - Although the cyclical nature of fashion is nothing new, brands are using the quintessential aesthetics of specific generations -- past or future -- in design for aesthetic appeal. This approach to design targets consumers more concerned with aesthetics rather than functionality.

Juvenile Couture Children's footwear is given a luxe overhaul for fashion-conscious parents Implications - Looking to convey prestige through their children, parents are investing in higher end footwear for kids. While the traditional thought regarding children's wear is to be frugal because of limited time usage, the premiumization of kid's footwear signifies a desire for disposable luxury.

Niche Fandom Celeb merchandise takes an eclectic turn as consumers crave customization Implications - Moving beyond typical collectibles, merchandise, particularly for celebrities, are taking a more abstract turn to create consumer intrigue. Branding things like lingerie or household decor with logos or images, retailers are re-branding typically lackluster products with elements of pop culture, allowing consumers to showcase their appreciation through familiar yet creatively customized retail goods.

Custom-Formed Footwear The rise of customization in fashion sees shoes getting a molded overhaul Implications - Consumers are shifting to prefer custom as opposed to off the rack footwear.

Haute Unkempt As brands aim to appear approachable, high fashion is given an unpolished overhaul Implications - While the traditional route for fashion brands is to create a lifestyle to aspire to, the roles have been reversed with models made to look less polished. This highlighting of imperfection relates to consumers on a more personal level and creates a relationship where viewers feel less intimidated.

Rural Fascination Urban consumers become obsessed with the simplicity of farm life Implications - The number of people living in urban locations is rising on a global scale, which has created a disconnect for many consumers who crave the simple life. Highlighting the aesthetic of farm life, fashion brands are appealing to consumers with a lifestyle far beyond what's considered to be glamorous. This adds a cultured element to a lifestyle that, though ideal for some, otherwise does not communicate the status consumers aspire to.
