From Luxury Knit Platforms to Wheat-Inspired Sneakers

These October 2016 footwear trends range from luxury knit platforms to wheat-inspired sneaker releases that draw inspiration from an unexpected place. While Salvatore Ferragamo's Spring 2017 runway show featured sporty flatforms with a feminine twist and crocheted accents, the 'New Air Max BW' sneaker boasts a distinct colorway, comparing the shade of leather to the appearance of wheat fields.

When looking at the month's functional footwear innovations, standouts include bacteria-banishing shoe bags and ergonomic slippers that promote comfort without skipping out on style. Additional October 2016 footwear examples to take note of include revamped oxford shoes that pair vintage and modern elements along with feline-inspired sneakers that are designed for fashion fans with a daring and fearless personality.
