Men’s Fall ’16 Preview: Footwear Designers Unveil Exclusive New Styles

Men’s fashion month has officially kicked off in London, to be followed by fall ’16 shows in Milan, Paris and New York. But before the storm of new shoes arrives, Footwear News asked designers to give us a sneak peek at their latest footwear collections.

To read what retailers are predicting for fall ’16, click here.

Robert Clergerie
“I was determined to tie the avant-garde history [of our French manufacturer] to what a man wears today. The styles are relaxed with a touch of classic and uncompromising comfort and craftsmanship.”
— Roland Mouret

Sergio Rossi
“An air of mystery wraps the new Sergio Rossi men’s collection. An exciting spy story, it’s set in the intriguing and ambigious atmosphere of the 1920s, inspiring a vivid reinterpretation of the masculine wardrobe.”
— Angelo Ruggeri

Giuseppe Zanotti
“The fall ’16 men’s collection is designed for a man who loves to express himself through innovative shoes and accessories. Classic materials are combined with new elements and sparkly details for an attitude fatale.”
— Giuseppe Zanotti.

Stubbs and Wootton
“We wanted our clients to feel like they have the perfect slipper, from the fox hunt to the fireplace, hopefully with a stop for Champagne along the way.”
— Percy Steinhart

Brunello Cucinelli
“Our collection is the result of great investigation and research, particularly sneakers, which already account for one-third of our general footwear offering. We focused on two themes: the sneaker that we introduced a few years ago — the Achille, featuring a clean, sleek taste — and the Icaro sneaker, which is a bit more elaborate but still very much belonging to the Cucinelli world. We tried to achieve a well-defined, sporty-casual-chic look.”
— Brunello Cucinelli

Fratelli Rossetti
“Each season, Fratelli Rossetti gives our classics a modern twist through our hand-printed colors, unique to us and our use of luxurious leathers.”
— Diego Rossetti

Louis Leeman
“The fall ’16 collection takes inspiration from the hiking and skiing worlds, with their unique landscapes, technical fabrics and accessories that are reproduced in many of the new styles.”
— Louis Leeman

Jimmy Choo
“Maybe it’s because I’m so influenced by Britishness that I’ve been thinking about the idea of Establishments. From the upper classes to the street — via the military, of course — men have always traveled in packs, marking their members through their clothes and shoes and expressing themselves through eccentricity and decadence.”
– Sandra Choi

N. 21
“Canvas laced ankle boot with rubber sole and embroidered passementerie details in Velcro, velvet and grosgrain.”
— Alessandro Dell’Acqua

Duke & Dexter
“Back in 2013, we launched with the aim to provide an alternative to the classic brogue shoe. Three years on, it seemed so fitting to create a design that fused the two shoe concepts together, utilising our original slipper base structure and combining it with the broguing pattern that’s so easily identified and greatly adored all over the world.”
— Archie Hewlett
