Top 85 Shoes Trends in February

From Prosperity-Themed Shoes to Dramatic Avant Garde Sneakers

— February 17, 2020 — Fashion
The wide range of February 2020 shoe trends features designs that prepare for different purposes, whether it is for functionality for athletics, fashion, trail, or more. One of the standout designs this season is by New Balance -- earlier this year, Lunar New Year 2020 was celebrated and the athletic brand joined in commemorating the holiday. It launches a new X Raver themed around the Year of the Rat and the concept of prosperity and wealth that the rat represents within Chinese culture.

Another shoe trend that captivates attention this month is by Rick Owens as he continues dropping avant-garde designs. The Geobasket shoe boasts dramatic laces and creates a unique geometric silhouette. It is constructed from bugged calfskin leather to add an elevated touch.
