Military, sporty, updated classic, the trends of this fall/winter 2016-17 for men's shoes propose a mix of tradition and innovation. Important elements are the materials, the prestigious finishing and the stylistic research of new color matching and inspirations.
On the runways, among the most viewed models there are certainly the boots, in suede or with a vintage effect at Boglioli and Trussardi, in strong colors such as red and bright blue in the proposals by Costume National and Opening Ceremony, or in the military version, sometimes with details taken from classic and with unusual color combinations, at Moschino, Valentino, Dries Van Noten, Dsquared2 and N° 21. Inspiration from mountain sports for the hiking boots by Woolrich, Missoni and Z Zegna, while ankle boots look to the old West at Philipp Plein, are in crocodile at Santoni and with elasticated inserts, inspired by The Beatles, at Louis Vuitton.
Classic shoes, black, dark brown and dark blue, are in patent leather and suede for Jimmy Choo and in brushed leather for Paul Smith. Attention to details, such as for example the pointed tip, present in the collections of Calvin Klein, Comme des Garçons and Burberry, becomes vital.
Among the lace-ups, there are bicolor models at Etro and Salvatore Ferragamo, an essential design for the Oxford shoes by Santoni, colored soles at Hogan and rubber lug soles in the iridescent shoes by Bally, in the Alberto Guardiani’s derby shoes, in the varnish versions by Pollini and in the rock version with studs of Saint Laurent.
Loafers and slippers have re-discovered the taste for artisanal workings and more traditional looks: this is true for the precious and comfortable slippers in herringbone tweed by Edhén, in embroidered tartan with fur trim by Gucci, in brocade by Ralph Lauren, with embroidered noble emblems by Dolce & Gabbana, or in the loafers by Car Shoe, which propose a customizable coin to include in the famous "Penny Loafers".
Sportswear becomes even more couture and trainers are the protagonists of elegant, more casual or decidedly sportive outfits:
- the silver sports shoes by Hogan are combined with the tuxedo suit, to play down the evening look with a modern taste
- in white, the dominant color of the main collections, illuminate the pinstriped and working suits at Ami and Neil Barrett runways, or have a more light-hearted mood at Prada and a contemporary aerodynamic silhouette at Bally, Jil Sander, Acne Studios and Alexander McQueen
- juxtaposition of black and white in the proposals by Marni, Bottega Veneta, Iceberg and Officine Generali, and strong colors, such as red, yellow and intense blue for Opening Ceremony, Maison Margiela and Giuseppe Zanotti
- animal prints and fancy graphic patterns, inspired by the 70s and 80s, for Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Kenzo and Lanvin.
