Even though mens shoes are not so varied as womens, this season designers have surprised with a great variety of footwear.
It’s all about the furnish, color, and “silhouette”.
Spurs, thongs, fasteners, laces are present at the most unusual places of fashionable pair of shoes or boots.
The neighborhood of related colors and shades is especially actual, leather and other materials are combined in one model and that creates surprisingly bright texture and perfectly affects design.

The silhouette of footwear also has played a huge role in the creation of assortment for a season of fall-winter 2012-2013. As for this each designer has his own decisions.
To take, for example, a collection of Prada footwear with the extended snub nose and unusually cut out back and heel. Furnish by an ornament and flower application on varnish leather supplement ironic image of pair of shoes.
Sport-type shoes, laced boots, soldier’s short and high boots, footwear with lace in military style – all these shoes are still in fashion. From fashionable styles it would be desirable to note boots in rock-style and modern interpretation of “cossacks”, as well as experiments on subject of classical men’s shoes.

There are also novelties for this season. One could notice shoes and short boots on a 5 cm heel, and this height is not a limit for men. It confirms fashion on ‘cossacks’, and in fact the heel in this case is pretty high. So, men now are able to add some centimeters in height.
