[Report] Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags: shoe trends for autumn/winter 2022/23

There is definitely no story, the proposals admired at the January appointment in Riva del Garda speak of high shoes to cover the ankle, aggressive-looking soles and, of course, still many, many sneakers.

Elegant shoes, high-heeled for women and dovetailed for men, have obviously not completely disappeared, but there is no doubt that next winter boots will be on the top step of the podium.

And within this context, there are among the most diverse proposals. To protect the ankle, it takes all possible paths: from the aggressive combat boot, to the beatle that uses the elasticated part to differentiate the style and design of the models.

But there is also the ankle boot or the more relaxed and informal model, to then turn to trekking styles.

All these proposals have, in general, very structured soles in common, featuring aggressive and bulky treads. A characteristic that is also found in the way of reinterpreting the classic shoe (preferably the moccasin).

The classic tank here is exaggerated and its volumes taken to the extreme. The sneakers seen at the fair are more comfortable and less striking, and seem to adopt a comfy approach that is clearly found in slipper models designed for a fun and ‘warm’ home life.

Also in the models for the little ones there is a marked prevalence of ankle boots, even though the soles obviously tend to be lighter.

In the dedicated special issue you will find the complete report of Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags and all the photos of the best collections presented at the fair by the exhibitors.

MICAM: The return of fur and Texans, the usual certainties of high-structured sneakers and lots of ankle boots. Here are the F/W ’23-24 shoes.

Winter is the season of boots, and the coming cold season is no exception: fashion is pointing to chelsea boots, as well as amphibians and combat boots, often customized with metallic accessories or fur inserts.
Not too far away is the sound of revolver shots announcing the return of Texans, featuring metallic and jeweled accessories, animal leathers and metallic inserts.

Expo Riva Schuh: autumn/winter ’23-24 is made of boots, sneakers and moccasins

As always, Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags got things going for the coming winter, presenting new collections from international manufacturers and brands. A varied landscape, in which ankle boot models were again the winners. Those who thought that we would go for a longer style proved to be mistaken, as the preference remains for a style that goes just above the ankle.
