Dandy gentlemen have descended upon the Italian city of Florence for Pitti Immagine Uomo 94, which has been underway since Tuesday. As the menswear-focused event wraps its last day today, many major shoe trends have emerged from the slew of street-style looks. Here, FN takes a look at five trends spotted during the week.
Dad sneakers were, unsurprisingly, represented at Pitti. One guest sported a pair from Acne Studios. The neutral-colored style was subtly color-blocked with gray and white, offering a minimal aesthetic.
Socklike shoes have made their mark in womenswear and menswear, from heels to sneakers. Pharrell x Adidas is a notable example, with BYW Ambition shoes popping up on the Italian streets. The bold yellow, red and green sneakers feature “Ambition” embroidered across the upper and a white contrasting sole.

Sandals with Socks
It’s not just the ladies that can enjoy the sandals-and-socks trend. One attendee at Pitti gave the look a ’90s twist with an allover Fila-branded outfit, featuring socks and slides.
“Graf-feet-i” — or shoes with graffiti-like designs — were a clear phenomenon on the streets at London Fashion Week Men’s spring ’19 last week. Illustrated shoes also had a moment in Florence, with one attendee rocking Valentino’s leather Garavani sneakers. The low-top lace-ups had been hand-painted with a paint splatter detail and also featured color-blocking and pyramid studs.
As ’90s style continues to pervade fashion, logomania has seen a booming resurgence. At Pitti Uomo, even the most sophisticated silhouettes were treated to allover logos.
