With the inaugural season of New York’s first male-focused fashion week, New York Fashion Week: Men’s, under way, there’s a bevy of men’s spring ’16 footwear collections to dissect.
Public School designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne presented their latest collection with a suspect room-style background. But there were no criminal footwear offenses here: The rising label continued its black-and-white sneaker message, which is bound to be a hit with retailers come buying season. Stark white soles were given thick flatforms, while all-white runners offered a newly explored style.
Typically a master of theatrics, Thom Browne was decidedly pared down this season. The designer showed his signature line of cropped suits, while black leather oxfords took center stage.
The classic menswear brand presented its latest collection of summery men’s shoes, including two-tone dress shoes, blue and red canvas sneakers and flip-flop sandals.
Robert Geller continued the playful sock styling for spring ’16, seen on the international runways at Bottega Veneta and Versace. Socks and sandals? You bet. Thong-style leather styles, as well as Velcro-strap sandals, were paired with cashmere socks for cozy appeal.
