Expo Riva Schuh: Trends

Published: 16th Jan 2017

Riva del Garda (Italy) – The new cuissard [women’s thigh boot] stands out from the many proposals presented at the fair: true corsets, unique and appealing for all styles: thigh high, skin tight, perforated, suedette, ripped or fringed denim, embroidered, patent-leather, glitter and even classic, black leather or nubuck, but also in natural tones.

Another best seller is the lace-up ankle boot with molded heel, ankle or knee high. And then the Mary Jane, now studded with inserts, suede, decor and embroidery.

New loafers are brought forth: square toe and mid heeled, often moulded. There is a great choice of heights and materials: from the high wooden or clear plexi heeled or gold sculpture-models, to sturdy flats for more street-style and sporty models.

Black is the overarching colour, with burgundy, blue-green, dove beige as well as green, dark petrol, emerald or camouflage, in addition to carmine red and electric blue. – []
