Summer Prediction: Suede Shoes (Not Necessarily Blue)


Posted on 17th May, by iain in Fashion and Style, Like, Trends. No Comments

Much like my last summer prediction, this post is about shoes. What can I say – I like shoes. The prevalence of suede for the summer comes as a bit of a surprise (I’ve personally always thought of suede as an autumn material) but is something I’m willing to go with. If I had to posit a theory, I think people liked the look of bucks once they wore them in, but found the silhouette a little clunky. Those people are justified in feeling that way.

I was surprised to see this trend wasn’t limited to any particular brand, silhouette, or style of shoe. Instead, it seems to cross all customers. Though offered in a variety of colors, the more traditional browns and tans seem to take priority (as seen below):
