Fall Preview: Kickers

Kickers is returning to its roots. For fall ’10, the French brand has produced an array of retro-inspired looks that play up its 40-year heritage. The focus is on classic silhouettes done in oiled suedes and burnished leathers, and featuring decorative stitching, brogueing and hand-sewn details. The offering for girls includes appliquéd desert boots, embellished Mary Jane styles, lace-up boots and T-straps, while the boys’ offering includes skate-inspired sneakers, biker boots and low-profile sneakers. The collection, available in newborn, toddler and children’s sizes, retails from $52 to $130 at Zappos.com and Shoofly in New York.
