Sneakers: the never ending story and the trends for the coming winter season

Whether the reign of the sneakers is eternal or not we can not know. What is certain is that these shoes are living a golden age. Comfortable and versatile, they are loved by children and young people and not only! But what will they look like for next autumn/winter 2022/23?

The one forged by sneakers is an undisputed and indisputable kingdom.

It does not fear attacks, poisonings or revolutions. On the contrary, it welcomes revolutions and exploits them to renew itself, to perpetrate success, season after season.

Also for next winter, the footwear models inspired by the sports world are raking up awards, blending like chameleons into sport and fashion trends.

They are elegant and refined when needed, but also crazy, colourful and fun if you need to enliven the party or awaken from the autumn torpor.

Soles with a clear chunky taste connote every world in a transversal way, while casual luxury adopts leather as the main material, accompanying it with hand polishing, padding and thread stitching.

The avant-garde touch is entrusted to the colour, which is often flamboyant and sometimes embraces and envelops the entire model, from the sole to the upper. Very curious and fanciful tartan solutions, or jolly ones with a soft fur make the atmosphere warm and very playful.

The kingdom of sneakers was made to last and the right question is not ‘when will it end?’, But ‘what else will be invented for next season?’. Some clues: materials that expressly recall sustainability mixed with canonical looks.

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.
