Autumn Footwear 2022: Buyers Guide & Fall Trends

Autumn footwear arrives as quickly as it leaves, especially with how unpredictable the British weather can be.

Top autumn footwear trends for 2022

As with each year, new trends emerge from season to season, which can leave you feeling out of the loop on what’s popular. Not to worry though; we’ve compiled a list of our favourite new trends emerging this coming autumn season.

Cowboy boots

The wild west has always been a source of inspiration for fashion, and this year is no exception. Cowboy boots have been taking the runways by storm, with the effortless boot design being paired with transitional summer-to-autumn outfits for a classic and chic look.



Buckled adornments are going to be huge this autumn season, appearing on heels, boots and much more. The effortless feature adds edge, and can create a bit of interest to what may be considered a plain outfit.

We suggest following the high boot trend which has returned for another season. Our personal favourites are the Ladies Lotus Nuttall Knee High Boots.

Featuring a small buckle detail as the top of the boot, and a stretchy back panel, you’ll be both ready for the autumn weather and stylish.



Platforms have dominated summer fashion, and it looks like they’re not going anywhere fast. From heightened heels to high-rise trainers, platforms are becoming a wardrobe staple for many.


For casual autumn days, when it's not raining, Ruby Shoo’s Cassie Platform Vegan Baseball Boot makes the perfect addition for any sporty, preppy look. Pair with a casual outfit for the perfect cosy autumn look.

The subtle elevated look of the boot will keep you feeling sophisticated, yet fun. This trend isn’t just for women to enjoy, we have a variety of cowboy boots perfect for men too.

For ultimate comfort and style, we recommend the Wrangler Tex Hi Leather Cowboy Boots. Made with premium oiled leather and a stitch design, you’ll be ready to step into autumn in style.

Ballerina pumps


A hit or miss for many, the ballerina pump is back in fashion. Popular amongst those who love the current Scandinavian fashion trend, ballerina pumps are a staple for many women in their transitional summer to autumn wardrobe.


Dolcis Casual Ballerina Shoes are the perfect autumn flat to grab before the weather starts to cool down too much.

Running shoes


Comfort is key when it comes to autumn fashion, especially when the weather starts to get a bit colder. Running trainers are a staple all year round, but remain in fashion during autumn due to their versatility and effortless style. Pair with some jeans, or even some comfy trousers, for a cosy autumn look.


We recommend the Skechers Men’s Arch Fit Infinity Trainers for the ultimate support and comfort for walking around on those long autumn days out.
