Fur, Feather and Sheepskin the Top Shoe Trends for Fall 2016

When the models hit the runway for the Fall 2016 fashion shows in New York, Paris, Milan and London this past spring, they were sporting a variety of fur, feather and sheepskin footwear, and now that fall is finally almost here, it’s the perfect opportunity to score your own stylish shearling shoes to keep you warm in the cooler weather. From traditional sheepskin boots to fashionable Minnetonka fringe boots and handmade shearling slippers, The Sheepherder has everything you need to keep your feet comfortable and warm this fall and winter.

Sheepskin Shoes on the Runway

As far as the fall fashion shows were concerned, the shearling-accented footwear included Miu Miu’s colored sheepskin slides embellished with crystals and Maison Margiela’s hiking boot featuring ribbon laces and a shearling tongue. Even the men’s runway shows featured fashionable footwear with sheepskin accents, including shearling clogs and simple suede or leather high-tops with sheepskin tongues, Coach’s answer to the kangaroo-lined loafers Gucci debuted in January.

Handmade Women’s Shearling Boots

These may seem like an extravagant purchase for most of us, but even for those of us who aren’t walking the runway on a daily basis, there are plenty of sheepskin footwear options out there that are both practical and stylish. For women looking for a warm, comfortable shoe that can be worn inside and out, check out our Minnetonka Ladies Ankle Boot, a beautiful boot made with genuine sheepskin, a slip-resistant indoor/outdoor sole, and a versatile flap that can be folded up around the ankle for added warmth.

We also have authentic sheepskin slippers and boots for men, one of our most popular being the Men’s Minnetonka Hardsole Slippers, a moccasin-style shoe lined with 100% sheepskin wool to help keep your feet warm in the cooler fall and winter months. The shearling slippers also feature a durable suede construction and a hard rubber sole for indoor/outdoor wear.
