Top 100 Shoe Trends in October

From Adult LED Sneakers to Smart Shoe Rack Shelving

— October 12, 2015 — Fashion
These October 2015 shoes range from adult LED sneakers to commemorative kicks that pay tribute to popular beverages like branded beers and red wine blends. In addition to the month's fashionable sneaker fad, its athletic offerings include dual-colored soccer cleats and cork-constructed basketball shoes that are designed with both style and comfort in mind. Going one step further, these examples boost performance and are an homage to retro footwear models.

Moreover, these October 2015 shoes also include runway accessories that are constructed out of recyclable materials like sustainable silks and discarded fabrics that have been woven into a new and eco-friendly textile.

Other memorable examples include comfort-focused insoles that are made from an eco-friendly and durable cork material and fleece winter boots that are specially designed to withstand even the coldest of winter weather.
