Safari-Themed Men’s Shoes That Are On-Trend for Spring 2018

The spring ’18 season is all about a sense of adventure. Men’s labels embraced safari-inspired motifs on classic loafer styles, adding fun elements such as dusty suedes, bold embellishments and animal prints.

The trend was a look we saw frequently on the runways. At Dolce & Gabbana’s spring ’18 men’s show during Milan Fashion Week, embellished loafers were paired with lion-printed tops. Talk about a mane event.

Loafer highlights for the season include Gucci’s Western-inspired style with embellished buckle. Louis Leeman experimented with the mule trend, adding a collapsible back onto its greenery-printed loafer. Giuseppe Zanotti did the loafer in a washed-denim treatment, finished with crystal embellishment.

As for animal prints: Duke & Dexter took on the leopard print on its classic canvas style, while CB Made in Italy offered a zebra-printed calf hair version.

Want a more subtle style? John Lobb debuted a dusty-suede loafer with subtle roping detail.
