A lot more people are employed now than there were say twenty years ago; although everyone does a different job which means that some do have strict dress codes they must adhere to, it also means there are people who have careers where they do wear footwear that is entirely down to their personal choice and they are often deciding to purchase ones that are suitable for them being on their feet all day.
Retailers understand that not everyone is involved in sport but they may still like to wear trainers, they are now creating shoes that are recognisable by designer labels and popular magazines and they are made for comfort rather than for the impact of a road on an individual or to stop a footballer slipping on the football field.
These shoes are popular among men and women, although they will be required for different purposes. The wear of the particular shoe will be similar but the design will be very different, the colours tend to be bolder and the fit will be chunkier, almost like a shoe that would have been associated with basketball through the years, they tend to fit the ankle as well as the foot.
As every male is different some older men prefer a simpler, more sophisticated design that would look good with any outfit; the most popular design of this variety would be a sand shoe as they are freely available in numerous colours and designs to suit all ages and occupations.
The ankle shoe is more popular with the younger generation as they are keen to fit in with current fashion regulations, as they get older they believe wearing a simple shoe would enable them to be taken more seriously in professional areas like the workplace.
Sand shoe designs are also popular in the current market for women as well as men, they have an unique design which looks best when worn with leggings as the design goes right up to the knee. A design for a woman is more likely to enhance a particular theme including bright colours and shapes, they are sometimes even taken from a television feature.
Like footwear for the male population, women may also purchase the ankle fitting design, although there is not as wide a range as there are men, presumably because a lot of women prefer the high fitting or regular shoe. During summer periods a trend that is popular at this time of year is a design that is crossed between a trainer and a sandal and can be folded to enable easy storage. The fashion trainers on the market are also available for children so they may also fit in with fashion trends.
