The fall ’17 men’s shows at Milan Fashion Week, which ended on Tuesday, provided a bevy of new shoe trends. Overall, the season proved to be surprisingly understated and polished — but there were shoe innovations galore.
Below are the top five footwear trends:
The essential loafer got an update with clunkier silhouettes. The heavy-duty styles had refined detailing such as kiltie uppers or colored leathers.
Dress shoes went edgy with heavy metal studding and punchy color accents. While they added a dash of cool, they can be easily worn with a suit.
The fur trend continued to dominate in new, unexpected versions. The finishes included patchwork shaggy furs and understated ponyhair applications.
