The Stylesight Footwear team has been busy covering the footwear trade shows across the US over the last couple of weeks, and we’re back with the top trends from the shows.
FFANY started the trade show circuit on a high note with plenty of exhibitors present with their Fall Collections.
Italian vendors held the spotlight with an entire floor dedicated to mid-tier to high-end manufacturers.
Suedes and patents were strong, as was still calf-hair – always a winter favorite. Winter pales gained momentum, but the color of the season will definitely be rich bordeaux and ox blood.
The standout key item was the heeled loafer, present in almost all collections.
