Top 100 Shoes Trends in September

From Fruit-Inspired Slip-On Shoes to Split-Toe Hybrid Footwear

— September 28, 2019 — Fashion
The September 2019 shoe trends explore many different angles, highlighting functionality in different outdoor terrain, active purposes, or to meet stylistic elements. Many brands explore progressive fabrication through construction and other brands dive into its archives to spotlight tradition.

One of the notable footwear designs this season is the latest Marni sneaker made for the Fall/Winter 2019 season. It draws directional inspiration from bananas and can be worn as both a slip-on or a laced up sneaker. It is made in a selection of colorways and features rubber materials at the exterior. Another great shoe design this September is by luxury fashion house Maison Margiela. Its iconic Tabi toe design is recognized at a global scale and it recently offered a high-top iteration of the look made from premium grained leather with a glossy finish.
