Outsoles focus A/W ’24-25: sustainable materials, new production processes, and fast design

If one moves and operates in the fashion sphere, one can never overlook aspects related to design, trends, and new proposals for future seasons. And so it is, in fact, also for the coming autumn winter 2024-25, in which many soles and structures and heels pur- sue their search for aesthetically innovative solutions by still work- ing on large volumes and aggressive designs.
But in all sincerity, much more interesting and fascinating are the projects that many companies are developing that are directed to revolutionize the world of shoe soles in some way.

LINEAPELLE: What’s in store in the upcoming A/W 24-25?

Lineapelle answers with the elaboration of trends for the coming cold season. A season characterized by going beyond to redefine one’s nature and transform oneself. These are the key words launched for Winter 2024-25.

In this issue we showcase a selection of the upcoming materials and trends seen in the last edition of Lineapelle.

Sustainable soles: that’s the new obsession for Summer 2024

Yes, agreed, next Spring Summer 2024 will still see many footwear proposals that will feature soles with very important volumes, quite taxed and aggressive in look. A rule that will also apply to sandals and slippers. For sure we will have an overabundance of colors, even very bright, tending to fluorescent.

LINEAPELLE: Vital, colorful and environmentally conscious energy. Here is S/S 2024

This is how Lineapelle introduces its vision of trends for the upcoming Spring Summer 2024. It can be said that the guidelines for the coming hot season are indeed that. Color, which infuses energy and vital desire, is present almost everywhere and, in particular, is to enrich the retro shapes of accessories and components.

S/S 2024: Trends for footwear and leather goods

And if the phygital world shifts weight toward a more physical presence, technology continues to advance, opening the way for designers to explore new techniques in a 4.0 creativity perspective.
Let us not forget the new geopolitical dynamics that have changed attitudes, values and priorities. ‘Surfing’ represents the most up-to-date mood mixing the spirit of adventure, freedom of movement, challenge, exploration and technical innovation. Design, materials, shapes, volumes and colors of footwear and leather goods for the upcoming spring/summer 2024 are influenced by this trend that relies on imaginative materials, very sinuous shapes, metallic surfaces, and the upcycling of organic materials. Adventure and technique also collide in color palettes that contrast and overlap.

Soles and heels: there is no getting away from sustainability

By now it is clear and obvious, the world of footwear structures can no longer ignore the issues of sustainability, the constant and incremental search for new materials, whether they are of organic or recycled origin. Almost all of the innovative designs proposed for the upcoming fall winter 2023/24 have emphasized environmental friendliness.

If we look at the aesthetic themes emphasized, thick and important bottoms designed specially to accompany the new wave of boots that will undoubtedly invade future winter storefronts jump out at us.
But the theme of the height of the bottoms and their solid and massive appearance remains well anchored even in the low models, whether sneakers or loafers. Colors and graphics, a theme usually unaccustomed for the cold months, are instead making their way into the 2023s.
Beware the graphics are also going to invade the territories of elegance, which is unlikely to be expressed in minimalist tones.
