Men’s fashion week launches the best shoes at a price people can afford

One trend stands out above the rest once Milan Men’s Fashion Week’s spring-summer ’23 season is over: There will be something for everyone in 2019. It is uniqueness that seems to be defining fashion for all genders as it continues to find its feet in a post- (and ongoing) epidemic world.

Although there is still room for the athletic mainstay in any collection, Milan’s spring ’23 men’s season saw the dress shoe overtake the once-ubiquitous fashion sneaker. In the recent past, a slide sandal might be anticipated for any warm-weather season. Elsewhere

Here is a closer look at the top 10 shoes from the spring ’23 Milan Men’s Fashion Week.

1. Prada’s Western-inspired Cuban heels

The Italian fashion house is renowned for establishing trends in both styling and specific products, and both made a strong impression on spring ’23 menswear. Prada displayed the short short with a black leather shoe once more, but this time chose a black leather boot with a Cuban heel and some Western flair to round out the silhouette, echoing a current women’s footwear trend that is quickly gaining ground even as the peak of the hot summer weather approaches. The street style crowd likes to wear their black dress shoes with white crew socks, but Miuccia and Raf make it clear that black socks are the only appropriate choice for this outfit.

2. puffy slides by Fendi

Fendi recognizes that everyone will desire a simple slip-on shoe come summer despite all of its experiments with gender norms (the crop top suits! the pearls! the Mary Janes!). One has been available from the company for a while, but this time, it took the straightforward sandal and blew it up with its double F monogram for a shoe that is sure to be a chic poolside hit.

3. Mega hardware loafers from JW Anderson

Particularly a slip-on mule with a characteristic large chain link accent, Jonathan Anderson’s footwear designs for both his JW Anderson label and Loewe are runaway hits with the more sophisticated fashion follower. With a collection of slide loafers done in vivid colors and a single slab of silver metal running over the top, Anderson continued the huge hardware trend for spring ’23.

4. Rubber boots 1017 Alyx 9SM’s Mono

Recent debuts demonstrate that there is still more than enough potential for innovation with the silhouette and material, regardless of how the molded-rubber boot craze got started. Although Matthew Williams hinted at a new Nike collaboration in his spring ’23 line for his 1017 Alyx 9SM brand, the Mono boot, an upgrade to the Mono slide, was undoubtedly more intriguing.

5. Greca slides by Versace

One is constantly expecting Versace’s Medusa platforms to appear on the men’s runway. In the meantime, there are these Greca flat slide sandals, which are the height opposite of a platform but no less detailed thanks to the contrast stitching.

6. Gucci boots with the Ha Ha Ha heart pattern

Despite not being a part of the spring ’23 collection, Gucci’s new menswear collaboration with Harry Styles and creative director Alessandro Michele included a standout pair of white leather dress boots with a single red heart that will undoubtedly become a collector’s item when it debuts in October.

7. Trompe l’oeil rubber boots from Moschino

The Kanye West effect, perhaps. At Moschino spring summer ’23, Jeremy Scott applied his trompe l’oeil sketch theme (previously seen in women’s collections) to a pair of black leather knee boots with a workwear shape, bringing back the enormous Red Wing and Balenciaga boots in more inventive ways.

8. Loafers by Santoni Hardware

Santoni debuted a traditional loafer employing a hardware plate that was also featured in its fall ’22 women’s collections, echoing the massive hardware of JW Anderson’s slides (on a high heeled pump, no less). The gold tone plate gives the traditional shape just the right amount of flash and dress.

9. The versatile suede lace-ups from Etro

An in-between casual lace-up shoe has a lot of potential at the moment when the stylish sneaker is losing some ground but a dress shoe still feels too much in real life. Then there is Etro’s lace-up, a Wallabee-style boot with contrast welt stitching that gives it a beachy vibe despite the fact that it could be worn with a suit.

10. Brioni sandals with toe rings

Brioni’s toe-ring sandal gives a more sophisticated interpretation of barely there men’s footwear in a season where the thong sandal made a few appearances and bare feet were even a thing. It’s a simple approach to upgrade the summer vacation clothing when done in the most basic, neutral leather.
