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.
If you are looking for the latest sustainability projects at the level of finished products as well as materials, this is the right place to find a wide roundup of initiatives, starting with the report of the Green Zone organized by MICAM during the last edition of the fair.
But also the perfect place to find out what are the important issues to keep in mind when talking about sustainability today. We highlight three in particular: traceability, production chains, circularity.
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.
The outdoor world has recorded positive growth during 2021, especially in apparel and footwear sectors, and for next Spring Summer 2023 is focusing on materials, technologies and models characterised by a functional and sustainable approach.
New materials, new production systems, certifications, conferences and fashion guides for ‘aware fashionists’: sustainability in footwear, leather goods and tannery sectors has a revolutionary impact.
A concept that emerged some time ago and which is being proved by increasingly more concrete
examples of business cases. We
see it when talking about B-Corp, but also giving an account on what happened in the Global Footwear Sustainability Summit.
