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

DIY Discount The commodification of the DIY boom leads to brands adopting the ethos Implications - As sites like Pinterest and Etsy comodify the concept of DIY products, brands are responding in kind with custom products and services that give a level of discount by requiring that the consumer become part of the manufacturing process. This augmentation of the custom goods market into something that's attainable for the average consumer transitions tailored goods from luxury to average and lures shoppers who are more inclined to do it themselves. This consumer base -- also avidly involved in the online shopping world -- is accustom to the lower price points associated with e-tail and are far more interested in a partial DIY product over one that's in-line with offline costs.

Embracing Peculiarity Unconventional fashion utilizes eccentric designs to ignite individual taste Implications - In a society where consumers are consistently exposed to elements of media from across the globe, individual expression is becoming more prominent. Attempting to stray away from the ordinary, fashion designers are turning to eccentric couture to cater to consumers who desire more visually distinct clothing. Outlandish designs provide consumers with unconventional looks that stray away from the norm, combining unique aesthetics with the need for individual expression.

Galactic Retail Futuristic interiors cater to consumers looking for visually enticing experiences Implications - With modern-day consumers commonly influenced by mass media, retailers are turning to more culturally influenced decor ideas to appeal to those looking for more visually enticing experiences. Sci-Fi decor and space-age themes provide surreal settings that allow shoppers to easily detach themselves from reality, combining artistically abstract features with the need for more alluring everyday activities.

Generation Hacking Not quite ready to grow up, teen DIYers put their own spin on adult clothing Implications - As the maturation of children starts earlier and earlier as years pass, tweens and teens are becoming more accustom to emphasizing their prowess for a grown-up lifestyle through creative expression via personal style. Wanting to be considered an adult, but still not ready to indeed grow up, younger generations are DIYing their own clothing to satisfy this desire to have their mature attitude acknowledged by personal and professional peers. This form of generation hacking blurs the line between juvenile and mature further to create an age-based limbo for those on both sides of the spectrum.

Inedible Vegan The natural food movement extends beyond food and into lifestyle Implications - Those who follow a vegan diet will profess that it is a lifestyle, not just a way of eating. Recently, this statement is taken in a more literal direction as consumers seek vegan, vegetarian and natural products for various facets of life. This speaks to the magnitude of the naturalist movement, proving that it is here to stay.

Anatomical Obsession Brands turn to bodily references to merge eccentricity with shock value Implications - With consumers unimpressed and mistrusting of mass-produced products, brands are turning to vivid anatomical themes to elicit more of a uniquely eccentric appeal. Images of the human body offer both shock value and familiarity. This battles mistrust of cold, inanimate objects directly by personifying products.
