Sandals, sneakers or ankle boots: there's an unlimited choice of shoes, and yet it's not enough. After all, every season requires its own pair of shoes. But which shoes are actually suitable for which outfit? And what should autumn shoes be like if you'd like to keep your socks dry when you go for a walk?
Sneakers – true all-rounders
Sneakers are the epitome of comfortable and sporty shoes. It is hard to imagine life without them. Thanks to the great popularity of this type of shoe, there are also elegant designs that can be worn on more formal occasions.
Sports shoes – perfect for all types of sports
There are sport shoes for every sport. They offer high stability and support the foot exactly where it needs it. The breathable designs prevent your feet from sweating easily, while water-repellent versions are worn in bad weather.
Walking shoes – for anyone who loves being outdoors
Those who love going outdoors know to appreciate a good pair of walking shoes. They offer a secure fit and grip on a walk away from paved roads. This is why these type of shoes are not only the ideal companions in autumn, but also very suitable for when you go hiking in summer.
Ballerinas – classic or modern
Ballerinas are often worn by tall women who don't want to wear high heels. Casual ballerinas go beautifully with a sporty outfit, while designs with rhinestones or bows go well with an elegant dress.
Mules – lightweight summer shoes
Mules are very comfortable on warm days. They are similar to slippers, but are equipped with a sole that's suitable to wear outside. Since they have no back, putting them on and off is very easy. Both plain and colourful mules are a welcome companion for a skirt or cropped trousers in summer.
Sandals – chic summer shoes
Light and airy: Sandals are the ideal shoes in summer. They go with skirts, dresses and trousers. Heeled sandals look elegant, while flat sandals also finish off any casual leisure outfit perfectly. Platform sandals or embellished sandals are ideal to wear with a dress on a warm summer evening.
Loafers and moccasins – cosy and versatile
Classy loafers for a business outfit or a casual ensemble for every day: thanks to the low height and the comfortable fit, loafers/moccasins are incredibly versatile. Neutral colours blend with many styles of clothing. If you want to make the shoes the focal point of your outfit, then you should choose extravagant designs.
Lace-up shoes – comfortable and practical
Modern lace-up shoes provide ease of wear. They adapt perfectly to the shape of the foot and offer a high degree of comfort even on long days. Whether with a platform sole or as a brogue shoe: lace-up shoes are perfect footwear for both the office and everyday life.
Boots – warm and cosy
Cuddly lined boots keep your feet warm in winter. Almost every type of boot goes with jeans and trousers, while skirts look best with high boots. Boots should be waterproof to keep your feet dry.
Ankle boots – easily combinable
In contrast to boots, ankle boots have a low shaft height. They reach just above the ankles and therefore blend with many outfits.
Slippers – feel-good footwear
Cosy and soft: slippers keep your feet relaxed and warm. They are perfect for when you get home from work. Slippers with a comfortable footbed are wonderfully pleasant. Slippers are also easy to slip into. You can choose from fluffy and warm designs, and also from summer slippers that resemble sandals.
Chelsea boots – feminine and elegant
These trendy shoes which resemble ankle boots, go perfectly with skinny jeans. The combination of skinny jeans and fashionable boots enhances a feminine look. Chelsea boots can also be worn with a skirt or dress with tights. It is practical that they often have small, yet eye-catching details – such as a colourful sole or a check rubber insert on the side.
Luxury shoes and designer shoes – glamorous and extravagant
For that special moment: Luxury shoes stand for exclusivity. They exude elegance and a personal style. Designer shoes and luxury shoes with embellishment have that certain something that will enhance any outfit.
Heels – elegant classics
Timeless heels can be worn on many occasions. They complete business outfits or top off a party dress. High heels are fashionable accents with a casual look. As they make the legs look longer, they are very popular. Pointed heels or peep-toes with an opening for the toes are also good eye-catchers for summer outfits.
Comfortable shoes with hook-and-loop fastener are easier to put on and take off, which makes them ideal for elderly women. Shoes for seniors should support the foot as best as possible while walking. In addition, most shoes of this type come in comfortable slip-on designs to avoid tying shoelaces.
Nice shoes for every day
Ballerinas, sneakers or loafers: anyone who's on their feet a lot in everyday life appreciates comfortable and practical shoes. Of course, these shoes also have to be beautiful shoes that flatter your legs.
Fashionable shoes for holidays
The best shoes for a holiday should be easy to care for and space-saving. In addition to sandals and ballerinas, light Chelsea boots are also a good choice. These fashionable shoes are not too warm and can therefore be worn on spring days and colder summer evenings.
Party shoes and elegant shoes
Whether it's for a wedding or New Year's Eve party: elegant shoes complete every party outfit. Chic ankle boots or Chelsea boots, for example, are perfect for the New Year's Eve or office Christmas party. Party shoes such as heels or loafers with heel are wonderful for a wedding or a summer party.
Sports shoes or sneakers are ideal for a sporty look. Lace-ups are also particularly suitable. Casual outfits get an elegant touch by completing them with ballerinas or sandals. Business looks are mostly paired with elegant loafers, ankle boots or heels.
Depending on the cut of the dress, you can wear sandals or heels. Casual summer dresses can also be teamed with ballerinas. On cold days, a dress can be combined with tights and boots, ankle boots or Chelsea boots.
Women's shoes made of leather are kept in good condition with special leather care products. An alternative is women's shoes made of faux leather, which is less sensitive and which can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
In the summer months, designer shoes such as sandals are in great demand. As autumn shoes, loafers or lace-ups offer just the comfort you need.

But please note: autumn shoes as well as spring shoes should be waterproof because the unpredictable weather of both these seasons can lead to wet feet.
