Milan Fashion Week Introduced New Men’s Shoes To Fit Every Taste

Historically, men’s shoes have received little attention in the fashion industry and there was never a demand for more style with the majority of men opting for functionality over aesthetics. That’s changing, however, as a wider acceptance of gender fluidity and a less strict adherence to gender roles blurs lines in fashion for both men and women. Today, fashion designers are beginning to appeal to the male gender with a wider selection of men’s shoes, as proven by a diverse showing at Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week.
Among the offerings as Milan Fashion Week were shoe collections from favored designer Jimmy Choo. The fashion house’s chief designer Sandra Choi was on hand to promote the company’s spring/summer collection, which has an obvious 60s vibe in the new styles of men’s shoes. Choi presented a trend for polka dots in their new collection of men’s shoes, which were all affixed on traditional black or white bases. Other designs included diamond-shaped leather pieces woven together.
Peter Non deviated from the traditional concept of men’s shoes by debuting a collection of sandals and slippers. The collection offered an array of color choice: cream white, cerulean blue, sea green, and cherry pink. The collection also comes with single strap, double strap, or crossed strap options.
Edhen Milano also debuted a spring/summer collection of Mens Shoes from Brand House Direct at Milan Fashion Week, though the new styles could appeal to either gender in many cases. The company’s head designers, Filippo Cirulli and Filippo Fiora, generously incorporate geometrics into their designs to give greater depth to their designs. Triangle and diamond shaped suede pieces bring a greater sense of style to their slippers and boots. Yellows, oranges, and blues bring a splash of color to Edhen Milano’s collection of men’s shoes.
No men’s fashion week would be complete without a showing from Tod’s, another favorite among fashion fans. Tod’s offers a more mainstream collection of men’s shoes, beginning with the company’s old stand-by, leather moccasins. The moccasins offered in the new collection have a camouflage theme with black leather laces, appealing to those with a love for military themes.

Additionally, Tod’s offered several variations of sneakers in the collection, creating a line of men’s shoes that employ blends of suede and leather. For the sneakers, Tod’s offers a range of color options, including several hues of blue.
For a more formal look, Tod’s also debuted a polished black leather loafer with tan colored suede laces and tan colored soles.
Milan Fashion Week took on a geometric theme this year, as was seen in previously mentioned offerings, but the theme also found itself prevalent in collections offered by other fashion houses. Many new styles of men’s shoes were offered that featured pointed toes, presenting a triangle shape in conjunction with square heels. Marni offered an opposing style with squared toes.
In addition to shapes, bold colors made a big showing at Milan fashion week, ensuring the new styles would stand out in a crowd. Whether shopping for sneakers or business shoes, designers offered a wide range of styles and bright colors at this year’s Milan Men’s Fashion Week.

Tips For Choosing Comfortable Shoes

Tips For Choosing Comfortable Shoes

A lot of shoes that are available on the market today seem to be more geared towards looks and fashion instead of comfort. However, finding a good pair of comfortable shoes should be really important when you are going to be on your feet for long periods of time. Wearing shoes that are not comfortable or that don’t offer the proper support can lead to many types of foot ailments. Thankfully, you don’t have to suffer in the name of fashion. You can find quality, comfortable shoes for most occasions if you know what you’re looking for. Below are some of the top tips to take into consideration when looking for a pair of comfortable shoes to purchase.

Check The Design

Some shoe designs are made for comfort and some are not. This is why the design of a shoe is what will ultimately determine which ones are comfortable shoes and which are not. Some features that make comfortable shoes include the following:

•Achilles Notch- The groove in the back of a shoe where it meets your tendon is important for overall comfort. The notch is designed to help reduce rubbing and friction on your heal to prevent blisters and tears in your skin.

•Midsoles- A midsole is the floor of the shoe. BHD comfortable shoes will have a midsole that is thick enough to absorb the shock from walking or running while you are wearing them. The midsole should also be formed in a way that fits your foot properly.

•Appropriate Toe Box- The toe box is another important part of the shoe design to consider when looking to buy comfortable shoes. This area needs to be big enough that your toes have room to move, yet fit well enough that you have proper support. A toe box that is too small can lead to sores and bunions.

Flexibility

The flexibility of shoes is a top priority when searching for comfortable shoes. A good shoe or sneaker should be able to easily flex with the movement of your foot when walking or running. Twisting a shoe is also a good way to test the shoe for support. There should be a light resistance when twisting a shoe from side to side. However, the shoe should easily be able to be pointed upwards. The shoe should bend under the ball of your foot and not anywhere else along the arch.

Lightweight

Big, heavy shoes take more effort to move around in. They can also be a lot less comfortable to wear. Comfortable shoes should be lightweight and need little effort to move around in. Light shoes can offer the flexibility and comfort that you need. Heavier shoes tend to be less flexible and the weight can make it difficult for you to walk or run properly. Light material is often best for exercise and warmer weather. The lighter materials used in the shoe not only make them comfortable to wear, but they let your feet breath easier in warmer climates as well.

Memories Of Mary Jane Shoes

Memories Of Mary Jane Shoes

Women around the world have worn Mary Jane shoes since the early 1900’s. Their name came directly from a character in a popular comic strip that first debuted in 1902. That tells you just how old this remarkable shoe design is. The original Mary Jane shoes features an instep with a strap across it which securely fit the foot in the shoe while allowing for little girls and women to still enjoy the look of a dress shoe. They were THE Sunday shoe for many little girls later on in the 1900’s. In the 1920’s, they were wholly fashionable for even the hippest of women to sport about.

Today, the design has changed somewhat. There are different numbers of straps, different appearance in the instep, different colors than might have been popular almost 100 years ago. But the essential design of this shoe remains unchanged and that’s because when you have a good thing going, there’s no reason to fix it. Little girls and women loved Mary Jane shoes in the 1920’s and they still love them today, even if different companies are always coming out with their own version of the shoe.

The original shoe was manufactured by the Brown Shoe Company, who adopted Buster Brown as their mascot in 1904. Buster Brown was the comic strip that the Mary Jane character came from. This is all mentioned because it gives you an idea of just how far back America’s history with Brand House Direct Mary Jane Shoes goes. These shoes have been around for a shockingly long amount of time and their prestige doesn’t diminish no matter how much time has passed since the original shoe was introduced to an American audience happy to see them.

In short, Mary Jane shoes are one of America’s great traditions. Little girls will develop memories with them and recall them when they get older. Women remember wearing them as little girls. Thanks to always new designs and versions of the shoes, you can bet that more than a few women will also be wearing them to their formal outings, too, as they are the perfect casual-dress shoe, if that makes sense.

As the shoes continue their long history with girls and women, people have grown to appreciate Mary Jane shoes now more than ever before. They’ve been around so long that you can look at just about any woman’s closet in America and find a pair or two of them in there, ready for any occasion that calls for them. They’re especially comfortable and perfect for the summer months, when it pays to have an open shoe for comfort in the warmth, while still at the same time a strap securing the foot and making sure that comfort is still a priority. Buying a pair of Mary Jane shoes in this day and age is easier than ever before. The little girls and women of yesteryear walked into stores to pick them out. Today they buy them online from the comforts of home.
