Although New York Fashion Week has just closed its doors, its very peculiar footwear proposition has left an indelible mark in the autumn/winter 2017-18. Marc Jacobs sent her models out on the catwalk wearing high platform shoes, moccasins and boots. Python leather high platform shoes were also spotted at Ralph Lauren. Thom Browne, instead, took inspiration from ice-skating shoes. The leather upper is reminiscent of a male dress (with shirt and tie), while the heel is similar to an ice skating boot blade. Whimsical evolutions were also spotted at Coach co-ed show with glam platform sneakers with shearling inserts and sandals with leather buckles and rhinestone with fur and sheepskin insoles. Sculptural heels were the trademark for Proenza Schouler’s open sandals as well as for Michael Kors’ pumps. Above the thigh boots were the signature look for Philipp Plein and Victoria Beckham, while Yeezy Season 5 featured heels. Flower embroidery was the highlight for Libertine’s boots while Jesus imagery was the key look for Jeremy Scott A/W 17-18 collection.
