Halloween Costume and Footwear Ideas 2022

With the spooky season upon us, it’s time to start planning your Halloween costume. If you’ve got your outfit planned but you’re not sure on what shoes to choose, don't worry, we have plenty of inspiration to help you put together a spooky outfit.

Take a look at our Halloween footwear style guide below to be ready in time for your Halloween celebrations.

Mens Halloween costumes

Whether you plan on doing a couples costume with your other half, or have a specific character in mind, we have a great selection of shoes to choose from.

General Mens Halloween Costume Ideas

If you haven’t decided on your costume yet, you could always opt for a classic costume featuring our top picks below.


A classic costume for many, a vampire costume is relatively easy to recreate. Simply pair a white button down shirt with some suit trousers, a cape and a pair of smart dress shoes like the Lotus Birkdale Black Leather Memory Foam Shoes.


These shoes make the perfect addition to any vampire's wardrobe, keeping them classy and spooky at the same time. Just don’t forget your teeth or fake blood!



Less on the scary side, no cowboy is complete without their cowboy boots. The Mens Gringos Cowboy Leather Calf Boots are an eye-catching boot made for the lone rangers this halloween.

Pair with some blue jeans, a waistcoat and a cowboy hat for a wild west inspired look.



You could lean either way with a clown costume, going super scary or family friendly. Either way, we suggest pairing your colourful costume with a pair of boots to match.


The chunky and rounded shape of the Dr Martens Black Safety Steel Toe Cap Chelsea Dealer Boots are ideal for clown costumes. The platformed sole ensures you’ll be comfy all night, whether you’re out to blow up balloons or give your friends a fright.

Male Halloween Character Costume Ideas


If you’d rather be a character, we have a great choice of shoes and boots which would make the perfect addition to any character's wardrobe.

Michael Myers

Michael Myers is the main antagonist in the film Halloween, one of the most popular horror franchises ever.


If you fancy dressing up as Michael this year, we recommend pairing your blue jumpsuit with the Grafters Black Composite Leather Lace Up Safety Boots. The boot features a non-metal safety toe cap and a slip resistant sole, after all we’re sure it’d hurt if Michael dropped his knife on his own foot!


With the new Top Gun film being a massive success, we expect to see a whole host of jet pilots for Halloween this year.


Whether you’re going full flight suit or jeans and a leather bomber jacket, we suggest pairing your outfit with the Dr Martens Holford Gaucho Dark Brown Waterproof Lace Up Boots, ideal for those ready to jump to action.

Womens Halloween costumes


If you are still debating what to be for Halloween, we’ve listed some of our favourite women’s costumes below.

General Womens Halloween Costume Ideas


Our top picks for the classic women’s halloween costumes:


For a stylish witch costume, we suggest the Lotus Mercy Black Microfibre Block Heeled Court Shoes. These shoes have a block heel and a pointed toe, ideal for any witches' spooky outfit.


Pair with a black dress and tights, a cape and some glitter for a night of spell casting and magic.



If you fancy staying on the sweet side this Halloween, you could always be an angel to someone else's devil.

We recommend the Lotus Stellar Gold Metallic Sling Back Peep Toe Shoe with a white dress and angel wings, for some extra sparkle and glamour this year.



Whether you decide to dress as a comedy pirate or a scary one, the Lotus Maples Black Leather Ruched Ankle Boots are a great boot to keep your feet comfy all night.


The decorative laser cut details add an extra touch of glam to any feminime pirate look.

Female Halloween Character Costume Ideas


If you’d rather be a character, we have a great choice of shoes and boots which would make the perfect addition to any character's wardrobe.

Morticia Addams


Known for her gothic style, we know Morticia would love the Ruby Shoo Melinda Black Lace Vintage Inspired Heels.


Pair with a long black dress and a sleek black wig for the ultimate Morticia inspired look.

Lara Croft

An oldie but a goldie for Halloween, Lara Croft is a great choice for anyone looking for an easy to recreate costume.

We think the Amblers Kira Waterproof Black Composite Safety Boots are a great choice for a tomb raider. Pair with some cargo trousers or shorts, a grey top and some black gloves for the ultimate Lara look.
