The 20-year loop rule seems to coming back a bit this season. Big bold colors like those in the late ’80s and early ’90s are coming back.

Oxfords

The oxford is big this year. I’m not sure why I put it last on the list because it’s everywhere. It gets your foot covered up for the cold months and keeps things warm. Add some textures to your shoe collection this season. It’ll make for some really great looks.
