Though the slip-on shoe evokes a certain effortlessness, spring ’15 styles are anything but straightforward. Unexpected material combinations are fused with fresh colorways and sprightly prints for novel effect. Artola’s casual loafer style mixes blush suede with a tanned woven tongue, while Daniele Michetti adds extra sophistication to the style with giraffe-printed pony hair. Dries Van Noten offers a men’s take on the ballerina flat in python-embossed leather, and Fratelli Rossetti’s traditional croc embossing gets amped up in a vibrant orange. Whether styled after a sneaker or a loafer, on-the-go footwear doesn’t have to be thoughtless.
