For girls who are always on the go, sneakers and colourful sandals in ‘Mini Me’ versions

Colour explodes in kids’ clothing and the same goes for accessories – all practical and comfortable, suitable for games and walks in the open air. Garments are becoming more and more eco-friendly and use natural and fresh fibres and fabrics, while footwear focuses on vegetable-tanned leathers, as well as recycled and bio-based materials. However, trends never overshadow the fit of the shoe, comfort, and all those essential technical features for a growing foot.

A glam touch for sneakers

Glitter decorations, cascades of small, coloured studs, animal print details, patches of materials, contrasting inserts: the uppers of the sneakers become palettes to be decorated, leaving the producer’s imagination free to meet the tastes of girls. The soles are boxy or chunky, but less accentuated than in the past.

Sandals: from formal to sporty

There are more formal sandals with small wedges, straps decorated with ruches, flowers and butterfly appliqués, straps, or ankle laces, but there are also sporty ones with anatomic soles, buckles, or Velcro closures. A wide range of proposals for contemporary girls.
