Colourful shoes for boys and explosive creativity for girls

We all know that girls love anything that sparkles, whether it be glitter fabrics and sequins or the array of appliqués that have been decorating shoes for a number of seasons now, such as bows, ribbons, buckles, patches, flowers and words. Boys have also, for some time now, left plain behind, instead enjoying more colourful sneakers defined by a mix of materials and patchworks combining leathers and fabrics with technical materials. For everybody, then, it’s all about casual glam for everyday clothing and accessory choices.

Prints are an explosion of rainbow colours and logomania, in the form of all-over patterns or simple initials, is back under the spotlight. Shoes, from first steps to junior, are becoming a concentration of trends seen in the adult world, the only difference being the comfort of the materials, the fit and child-friendly constructions designed for growing feet with anatomic insoles and super soft leathers.
