SHOES - Catwalk Shoe Trends For Men

Here are a few shoe trends that I spotted at SS12 menswear day at London Fashion Week. Some of the looks you can easily copy now, or maybe make a mental note that come Spring next year these are some key styles you might want to stock up on.

Metallics, as seen at Hardy Amies. Go a little bit space age and include some metallic shoes in your shoe wardrobe. At Hardy Amies it was gold and bronze formal shoes on the catwalk, but I quite like jazzing up a more casual style too like these silver lace up shoes above.

Chunky sandals, as seen at KTZ. Spring/Summer 2011 is set to see the flip flop replaced with something a bit more statement for men. Yes you can wear sandals, they are by no means too girly. Chunky styles have a really masculine edge so these Timberland ones are a great example of the look. KTZ's sandals were studded too but for everyday wear it's fine to keep things a bit simpler.

White pumps, as seen at Mr StartThis look is better for Spring/Summer purely because the rain, grit and grime of Winter will get them grubby. However, I hear we'll be having a bit of an Indian Summer next week so break out your pumps while you still can. Style them up with a skinny-fit suit like as they were styled at Mr Start.

Blue suede shoes, as seen at Oliver Spencer. Like the Elvis song, you won't want people stepping on them, but they'll be sure to comment on them. Blue suede was a hot look over at the Oliver Spencer show. They teamed the shoes with all blue or blue and white outfits for a sharp look.

Boat shoes, as seen at JW Anderson Men. This trend has been around for some time but JW Anderson went for navy and whit with tassel details to bring them right up to date. Sebago are a brand known for fab deck and boat shoes so this pair above would be a great way to ease yourself into the look if you haven't dabbled already.

Plus my top tip, two-tone brogues. They popped up at a few shows but are definitely a trend-led style which will give your outfit extra style points. Try these blue and brown ones for size.

All shoes featured are available at Spartoo.
