Spring- Summer 2021 shoe trends
Shoes are one of the most important accessories in everyone’s closet. They allow people to be comfortable and fashionable but they can also become another way to demonstrate our care and attention to the environment. Let’s see the shoe trends for this spring and summer, what will we be wearing?
Platform shoes are one of the most popular trends of recent years. This spring the protagonist is the flat heel, a raised shoe without wedges. The platform sole will mainly be seen in sandals, the perfect combination for casual looks, for the office and leisure, while maintaining that dynamic and sparkling style that characterizes the spring-summer season. The most fashionable sandals will also have laces at the ankle, a detail that embellishes and enriches the shoes, giving them a more glamorous touch.
Clogs have always been a controversial fashion element. Loved or hated, they can, however, be distinctive and original accessories if made with precious materials, characterized by innovative design lines, and matched with style. The choice is wide, including models made of different materials such as wood, rubber, or cork. We suggest Gelia, our extremely light and resistant TR sole, that is recycled and eco-sustainable, making it fashionable, comfortable, of high quality, but also environmentally friendly. The small hubcap details of Gelia make these clogs modern and suitable even for evening looks.
Loafers are a must-have in every season, but this spring they take on even more relevance. Soft and light materials are preferred and enriched with details, such as fretwork, that make them fit even for higher temperatures. Color will be the real protagonist: the preferred ones are those that embrace essentiality and linearity, without necessarily being white or black, but with a more fanciful and “summery” minimal style, such as pastel colors and beiges.
Sneakers in the last year have been the favorite footwear of the majority of people. When choosing fashion accessories, nowadays the focus is mainly on functionality together with quality. People are looking for craftsmanship, innovation, and sustainability, with a preference for brands that care about the environment. Shoes made with recycled, biodegradable, and sustainable materials will therefore be the primary choice for the spring-summer season. Don Diego’s ECOSOLES are made of molecules resulting from an ecological transformation of the classic thermoplastic materials recovered from the production of other soles, to reduce the environmental impact.
The best model for this spring is the one that combines comfort and style while respecting the environment. We design and create fashionable soles made with quality materials, that can be easily combined in many shoes to fit every event of the day.
