Today we introduce you to three more men shoe trends for SS18, incorporated in the Youth Tonic.
Elevated soles and directional last shapes challenge traditional silhouttes. Contrasting surfaces are combined to give formal, casual and sport designs an edgy punk look, and 1990s silhouettes are reworked to classics a modern look. Muted black and navy tones are key for this trend’s dress-code appeal.
Daring blocks of color and print are added to fastenings, trims and panels, resulting in offbeat, mismatched details. Soles and uppers feature vivid tones, adding playful highlights for the season. Design lines are also challenged, with experimental patterns that create unique looks.
