Top 80 Shoes Trends in October

From Fruit-Inspired Slip-On Shoes to Beer-Resistant Sneakers

— October 26, 2019 — Fashion
The list of October 2019 shoe trends is designed with intentions that highlight sustainability, functionality, versatility, and durability. The weather begins to get colder and summer is making its way behind us -- many brands are preparing for the conditional terrain with its designs.

Notably, this month welcomes new holiday festivities -- one of the highly anticipated events is Oktoberfest. adidas prepares for the festive action with the Muchen Made in Germany sneakers, designed to be beer-resistant and done in colorways that reference the beverage as well. Additionally, Marni launched a new sneaker for the Fall/Winter 2019 season drawing inspiration from bananas. The unique design boasts a slip-on design and is made from dark rubber materials.
