To give you easy access to the trends, I have analysed all of the SS15 fashion week footwear shots from style.com.
In this post, I show you the top 10 colours used on shoes, sandals, and boots on the New York, London, Milan and Paris catwalks.

Rather predictably, black footwear outnumbered shoes in other colours this season. THE fashion colour still reigns.
Clockwise from top left: Derek Lam, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Haider Ackermann, Proenza Schouler, Viktor & Rolf
Stark white will be everywhere when the weather begins to warm up again. With trainers having a big influence on shoe fashions currently, it’s no wonder that the classic sportswear colour is so prevalent.

The surprise new trend colour was blue. From blue denim to copious amounts of Elvis-tastic blue suede, with snake and patent in between.
Clockwise from top left: Celine, Donna Karan, Comme des Garçons, Nina Ricci, Dolce & Gabbana, Vivienne Westwood
Red has traditionally been the overtly sexy option for shoes, and it’s certainly making a comeback. Seen on the catwalks in many different styles and materials predominantly in brighter lipstick shades.
Clockwise from top left: Louis Vuitton, Rochas, Miu miu, Saint Laurent, Comme des Garçons, Chanel
O.K. it’s not technically a colour, but there were a lot of multi-coloured shoes this season. From colour-blocking at Louis Vuitton, to multi-coloured strands at Rochas, these were all statement pieces.

Not since Autumn/Winter 2010 has camel been such an important trend. After black, this is the neutral every woman will want in her shoe wardrobe in SS15.
Clockwise from top left: Balenciaga, Chloé, Miu miu, Fendi, Versace, Kenzo
Pink made its way down numerous runways, bringing overt femininity back to counter recent “boyfriend” trends. Balenciaga offered almost nude satin, whilst Chloé and Versace had strawberry milkshake hues.
Clockwise from top left: Prada, Chanel, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Celine
In leather, silk brocade, or velvet, the Spring Summer 2015 gold footwear still appeared to make reference to The Great Gatsby’s 1920s decadence.
Clockwise from top left: Givenchy, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Marni
Tan has been a big colour for footwear for quite a few seasons now, but this season it has been replaced by the aforementioned camel, and the rich darker chocolate browns seen here.
Clockwise from left: Mary Katrantzou, Burberry Prorsum, Marni, Rodarte, Roland Mouret, Saint Laurent
Not an obvious colour choice for shoes, but deep emerald, military khaki and moss featured frequently on models’ feet this season. Combined with white, purple or red, the look is softer and easier to pull off.
Orange, yellow, purple and silver also graced the catwalks this season, with natural reptile and wood tones also appearing.
