In fact, fashion lovers made slick style statements with tassels on their footwear, incorporating the ornaments with traditional and contemporary silhouettes.
Stepping out in Prada loafers, a sharply dressed male highlighted the footwear’s low vamp with a pop of pink socks that complemented two-tone fur drop tassels (light dark brown and black fur) that dangled across the toebox, and a stacked 1-inch heel.
Another pair of Prada’s leather fringe hoofers seen during the fashion frenzy included a man whose shoes gave the look a modern twist. Set on a chunky translucent midsole, the brogues incorporated kiltie accents in bright red at the vamps, with black laces that draped on top. Perforations are designed around the black, red and white leather upper.
From Visvim, a pair of suede moccasin-style chukka boots in taupe with a lace-up profile and knot closures around the back of the ankle were spotted.
Among some of the other styles seen, there were plenty of dad shoes and high-tops from boldface name luxury labels as well as collaborative kicks that blended new takes on classics, including Vans x Supreme, Supreme x Comme des Garcons x Nike Air Force 1s, and Off-White x Converse vulcanized sneakers. Classic white Air Force 1s were seen teamed with monochromatic looks in khaki and all-red.
Also worth noting, the chunky shoe trend was not left out — including appearances by Acne Studios and Buffalo. Some standout statement looks on the street featured Raf Simons platform boots, JF London boots with fur trimming, printed Jeremy Scott x Adidas sneakers, Y3, and Iri neoprene shoes.
