Balmain Paris Men’s Fashion Week: RTW Fall 2016 Shoes

Olivier Rousteing’s #BalmainArmy marches on. Marking the designer’s second season showing a men’s runway show in Paris, Rousteing’s latest Balmain collection featured house signatures worked into the footwear including quilting and heavy metallic embellishments.

A recurring trend this season, velvet shoes made up a large portion of the shoes. Chelsea boots were done in the plushy material and were quilted, finished with leather straps and tassels. Certain styles had a metallic midsole for extra impact.

Tall boots, cut just below the knee, had an equestrian vibe when done in quilted black leather — especially paired with extra wide saddle belts,

Show-stopping gold embroidery was also done on boots, a technique that the label somehow works into all aspects of its collection. Balmain is not exactly a brand known for its subtlety, so the shoes were naturally paired with oversized golden crests and buttons on jackets.

A preview of the fall women’s collection saw satin stiletto boots, pointy in shape, with military strapping. Nothing new here, of course, but overall a strong accessories collection that fell in line with its house code.
