5 Key Trends | New Season Footwear | Spring Summer 2022 (Part 2)

 4.Sustainable Footwear – Vegan Ranges

As trends in the footwear industry and their impact on the environment continue to merge, the advent of Spring Summer 2022 brings with it the exponential growth in the savvy sensible eco-friendly customer. These buyers are extremely conscious of how adversely the production and manufacturing processes of the fashion and footwear Industry impact the environment. This cohort is no longer voting with their minds, they are voting with their wallets leading to a surge in demand for sustainable footwear manufactured 100% WITHOUT animal materials.

A recent fashion article from RTE Lifestyle referenced Jamie Hyam Sneaker Expert from The Sole Supplier in the UK who stated “that following the pandemic, shoppers are more concerned with the environmental impact of their purchases: Consumers are looking to invest in brands which are shown to be active towards issues such as plastic consumption, sustainable operations, and renewable materials. The explosion in choice of Vegan footwear options for Spring 2022 is evidence of this upward lifestyle trend.

Our Finn Footwear Tamaris range ports an eye-catching collection of vegan options in bold and neutral pallets. The Ladies Zip Detail Vegan Athleisure Style 23732 596 is 100% manufactured without animal materials and its ultra-chic White/Rose Gold colourway is a striking neutral combination guaranteed to offset any outfit in your Spring Summer wardrobe

5. Birkenstock Look and Feel 

You might be forgiven for thinking that Birkenstocks with their signature wrap-around cork soles are a thing of the past but think again, the Birkenstock ‘Look and Feel’ is very much to the fore for Spring Summer 2022. As Vogue Magazine affirmed in their fashion trends critique, Feb 2022 “No, Birkenstocks are not out of Fashion…. Here’s Proof in 13 Looks”.

Many leading fashion brands have re-examined the classic Birkenstock style to create and launch their own variant; a rival mule alternative which has the ‘Look and Feel’ of the classic Birkenstock for Spring Summer 2022.

Our S.Oliver’s slip-on mule offering in the form of a low wedge heel style 27201-001 in Black is a sure crowd pleaser and has the classic Birkenstock 'look and feel' with hallmark features including concave heel cup, raised toe bars and double strap. This black colourway will pair with every outfit in your new season wardrobe from long flowy dresses to miniskirts, wide leg trousers and even shorts!
