Wrapping up our local trade show coverage, the Children’s Team checked out The Children’s Great Event Shoe Show in Jersey. Neon accents were among the key trends, popping up on footwear for both genders. Fruits found their way from apparel to footwear and floral bouquets done in a range of fabrics were key for girls, decorating t-straps and sandals. Boys channeled cleaner styles, with cool color blocking and embellishments limited to stitching and accent soles. Heels rose a little higher for girls, giving sandals a taller wedge while lower heeled options featured accent heels. Check out last season’s post here and be on the look out for our S/S 13 footwear wrap in the upcoming weeks.
