Sporty influences, flexible constructions and unique materials will be key for the men’s luxury footwear market next season.
To capitalize on momentum in the segment, vendors unveiled a variety of looks at Pitti Uomo this week.
Church’s showcased its classic Shanghai style in nubuck and crocodile and introduced a colored camouflage sole on its sporty shoes, while Campanile used a supple leather treated with a long and complex process.
Santoni debuted shoes featuring an entirely natural latex sole that emphasizes flexibility. Trickers launched limited-edition, motorcycle-inspired boots available in a mono-color or a patchwork version.
And French label Paraboot brought trekking to the street, delivering boots with contrast fur linings. Blauer showcased motorcycled-inspired boots, while C.P. Company reworked a shoe used by miners in the 1930s.
