Looking for new pair of shoes?! The selection of colors, textures, as well as the variety of details, allow you to experiment. These experiments make your everyday black combinations more special and give you more self-confidence when leaving home! Footwear is very important and perhaps the main accent of clothing, so using the tips below will help you create your style and find out which details to pay attention to.
So, we present the essential accents of this season’s ankle boots, loafers, sneakers, ballerinas and, of course, pumps!
#1 Ankle boots: from punk to cosmic
Space and astronautics have a great impact on footwear fashion. Surprised? Keep on reading. It's no secret that after the first steps on the moon, PVC (transparent soft plastic) and lacquer appeared on the fashion podiums. Thanks to the new strong materials that have been created and the ability to process them, heels have become transparent, made of special plastic, or metal of various shapes. In some models, designers have replaced leather with satin.
In this year’s collection, you will find astronomical-styled models by Vic Matie, Strategia and Fru.it. Here, unusually-shaped heels, transparent rubber soles, and epoxy resin predominate. The textile industry now features metalized surfaces and textures.
In the 1970s and 1980s, when the wave of punk and metalheads spread across the world, and everyone wanted to be just like their music idols, the so-called "Punk trend" influence on fashion began. The rocker image will probably never go out of fashion. So we can ensure you that buying these shoes is definitely a good investment.
With the development of the leather processing industry and the never-ending imagination of designers, shoes are taking on new shapes, colors, and decorations (crystals, rivets, buckles, etc.).
#2 Loafers. Aesthetics of boredom
Good Italian shoes, just like wine, are time-tested, professionally created with love and devotion and, of course, come only from the finest Italian regions. Most footwear trademarks at Dolita wouldn’t trade their production location for anything. The Marche region is the heart of footwear production. Here, traditions are not years or decades old, but rather centuries old. Footwear sewing experience and knowledge - the secret of comfortable Italian footwear, is passed down from generation to generation.
What provides footwear maximum comfort? Extra soft leather, a leather sole and, of course, the sewing technology. The Sacchetto design offers maximum comfort. “Sacchetto” translated from Italian means “small bag”. This sewing technique requires great care, knowledge and precision. Each piece of leather is cut by hand only. A leather bag is then sewn from the leather, which is turned inside out and hand-sewn to the sole. The nearly seamless design makes the shoe soft, flexible, light, and guarantees comfort.
Particularly lightweight and flexible footwear models are available in the Pomme D’Or, Halmanera, Del Carlo and Ink collections.
Men have lots to choose from this season: from extra soft and flexible slip-on shoes and leisure sneakers to classic models with thin leather or rubber soles.
#3 Yup! Sneakers
“How do you picture yourself in 5 years? Same as now - with sneakers”. Although this phrase appeared in an interview in Vogue magazine by the editor herself, we are sure that the answer would be the same for many more years than 5. Today, sneakers are a complete must-have and their popularity is growing more and more every season.
What could possibly replace sneakers in terms of comfort? There’s just one answer- another pair of sneakers!
This year, designers offer new shapes again. More massive, futuristic, eclectic (jute rope + sneakers in the Voile Blanche collection), decorated with new details. Leather is replaced by innovative materials: technical satin, holographic PVC glitter, neoprene or sporty mesh.
#4. Ballet’s influence on fashion. Ballerinas.
Light as a feather and extremely elegant. Ballerinas always look charming on stage. Body-colored leotards, faded pink blush on their faces, pleated skirts and pointe shoes. It is thanks to them that such shoes appeared in the history of footwear as one of the most comfortable models. A fashion pirouette!
Spanish trademark Pretty Ballerinas features models from classic nude-colored and decorated with flowers to marine style models with classic combinations of white, red and blue.
#5 When a woman goes crazy over pumps
High heels are the shoes that women choose every season. High heels have influenced and changed the world from ancient times to the present day.
The very first high heels appeared in ancient Egypt in 3500 BC. They were worn by the aristocracy and simple craftsmen to protect their feet. It is believed that Catherine de Medici- an Italian lady of the 16th century, brought high heels back to life. She created shoes with high heels in order to look taller and to create a good impression of herself when she arrived to France for her wedding.
High heels greatly influence a woman’s wardrobe. On average, a woman buys about 40 pairs of high heels throughout her life. Seems a bit much? Yes, but some women wear high heels daily.
Also, pay attention to the thickness and shape of the nose, the materiality of the model, colors and soles, and the accessories, if any.
This season, DOLITA features a wide selection of footwear: the playful Chie Mihara models, the refined and modern Premiata high heels, the sexy and stunning Greymer, the Pomme D'Or and Ink models from extra soft leather, and the always-fashionable Mascaro.
It’s much easier to choose high heels at DOLITA if you’re choosing trademarks that you already know about because you’ve already had a pair or received recommendations. When in doubt, our consultants will advise you and help you choose the right pair.
In the DOLITA collection, you will find models that were "Made in Italy" with accents that will make even your classic wardrobe or classic work clothes look interesting and even catch a stranger’s eye:) Why choose simple if you can choose stylish.
