Key models of men's shoes spring-summer 2019

The feminization trend of men's wardrobe continues to be fully manifested in the design of men's shoes in the spring-summer season 2019. However, this time there is also a high degree of athleisure comfortable style, which is diluted with glamorous and bright details, which makes men's shoes attractive for both men and women. In this article, SR expert Galina Kravchenko, director of the assortment department and head of the FCG representative office of the international trend bureau, talks about the most commercial models of men's shoes for the mass segment.

If in women's wardrobe slip-ons displace ballet shoes, in men they begin to replace any low shoes. Thanks to elements such as velvet embroidery, stones and beads, tassels and kilts, slip-ons became not just comfortable shoes worn with jeans and shorts, but also a peculiar highlight of both trendy and restrained-business style.


Sandals for the SS19 season are included in both women's and men's wardrobe. Main details: orthopedic insole in combination with floral embroidery and woven straps; spike blocks and multi-straps; universal black and burgundy leather.


Sneakers and sneakers of the SS19 season are updated with a large number of prints, combinations of different leathers in one model, a variety of materials (nubuck, neoprene, sports net), as well as classic broging.


Low shoes for every day create a fun summer mood due to the playful design: color blocking, 3D-geometric shapes, bows, sequined stripes, as well as different types of leathers - both varnished animalistic and smooth, bright colors.


Elegant low shoes are made of patent leather, metallic and animalistic leather, and models are updated with floral embroidery with broging, tassels, kiltis and straps.


Shoes without a heel will definitely suit the most daring mods of the spring-summer season 2019. Habitual tassel loafers can be worn like ordinary low shoes or with your back tucked up, and this is not only for those who like to be “on style”, but also for those who value the comfort of wearing bare-toed shoes on hot summer days.


Of course, you can’t do without shoes in the spring. For guaranteed protection against slush, it is proposed to entwine the boot to the ankles with lacing, and on top to fasten it with a wide contrast strap. The all-weather effect is enhanced by a high futuristic sole.
