Footwear Trends For Winter 2018

With the weather changing it is time to rug up warm in a pair of cosy winter boots and here are some of the most desirable boots to wear this season.

The luxe sock boot is a super sexy boot trend that creates a killer silhouette to the classic ankle boot. Seen this season in fun new fabrics like neoprene and textured leather!  Coloured suede ankle boots is another fun trend. With a great range of natural colourways to choose from such as navy, olive and taupe, this is a great update to your everyday winter wardrobe.

For a more rock n roll look go for studs and buckles! The Sienna Boot by Miss Wilson combines suede and studs, while the Brooke Boot is crafted in classic black or tan leather with brass stud detailing. Over the knee boots are also making a comeback so grab a pair in suede or leather to make heads turn this season - the options are endless!

Sisters & Co spent five minutes chatting to local shoe star Emma Bidois of La Tribe for a little insight into what we can expect this winter...

Where did you get your inspiration for this season?
Our collection is called Tiny Dancer I love the song 'Tiny Dancer' by Elton John and always wondered who this girl was he was singing about. Apparently, it was inspired by a talented seamstress who created costumes for their band on tour as well as being the ultimate bohemian back in the 1970’s! Our collection includes styles I could imagine her wearing now - loafers, slingbacks, ankle boots, slouchy cowboy boots and sneakers.

What is your favourite shoe in the collection?
That’s a tough one! Can I have two? The Leo Sneaker for casual and the baby ankle boot in sand suede because I have so many black boots already! We’ve also added new waterproof technology to all our suede styles. Water literally beads off now.

What is fashion piece are you lusting after this winter season?
I’m obsessed with finding a pair of statement wide leg pants in denim, silk, or linen.

What is on the horizon for La Tribe?
I’m really excited about my SS18 collection coming this year! We’ve doubled our amount of styles and will be introducing two new strappy heels as well for party season. Lots of colour greens, reds, blush, golds new animal prints etc. We’re also doing some fun new accessories as well, scarves and sarongs. It’s our largest collection yet!
