Women's SS22 catwalk footwear

Trendstop brings FashionUnited readers an insight into the key footwear
directions emerging on the Spring Summer 2022 runways.

Footwear design takes a hybrid approach, effortlessly fusing multiple
trend elements and techniques to create fresh, inspiring styles. Aiming to
make a statement, proportions are scaled-up, exaggerated or taken to new
heights, highlighted by intelligent use of colour, interesting detailing
and always with comfort and functionality in mind.

The Global Fashion Flatform

Sports-inspired comfort meets global artisanal techniques in a playful
return for the platform. A profile that naturally lends itself to the
global artisan trend, raised flatform units are imbued with fashion forward
elements across colour and detailing, elevating handcrafted or recycled
materials and constructions.

The Raft Sole

Perhaps riffing off the idea of navigating choppy waters, ultra-wide,
life raft-like soles look as though they could walk on water. Exaggerated
proportions, encase, extend, or spread away from the foot. Pops of
high-octane colour applied to inner socks and sandwich soles create a
playful yet comfortable statement.

The Sport Stomp

The Stomp Boot trend evolves in a new, sports-inspired direction. Chunky
profiles and all-black finishes reference rebellious subculture dressing,
but with an active twist that incorporates sportswear zips and moulded
sneaker-style units. Lightweight leather and foam soled constructions,
extend the lifespan of the trend into the spring/summer season.
