TOP 4 SHOE TRENDS: Choo vs Louboutin

Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin are two of the most well known high end brands for stilettos. Many women would sell their own mother to own a pair of the most desirable shoes seen on the likes of models, celebrities and fashionistas alike.

This season with shoe trends I have noticed that there are a few main themes in regards to fashionable footwear, those trends being:

1. Sparkles, Glitter, and Shimmer: Anything shiny and metallic, perfect for those dressy occasions including weddings, cocktail parties, and other such formal events.

2. Animal Print: Usually leopard, but now including snake, croc zebra, and tiger prints. These cougar inspired leathers are the go to standout shoe for girls nights out, creating not only lasting impression, but grabbing the attention of anyone who walks past.

3. Wine Time: This is the colour of the season! Any shoe in wine, mulberry, raspberry, cranberry or burgundy tones rules this winter, reminding us of cozy nights and warm atmospheres!

4. Neutral: Patent, Suede, or Textured leathers look classic, fresh, and elegant in black, taupes, or beiges. These are the go to choice for work, and other casual events.

These trends are courtesy of Choo and Louboutin mainly, the question being, Which Designer Did It Better?! Which collection put forward hits the nail on the trend? See below for comparisons!
