Following in the wake of the ever-expanding quest for comfort, the presence of sneakers emerges strongly for Spring/Summer 2019, in technical fabrics with leather and elastic inserts. These sit alongside rubber maxi-wedges that hark back to the 1990s and which can be personalised with coloured stickers. High sandals are also eminent, some with small sequins and others with coloured thread inserts.
Light woven straw is also evident, as is soft leather in neutral colours or white, giving a natural touch to footwear, such as slip-ons and rope wedges. Coverings in plastic, rubber and vinyl also feature amongst the most important trends for the season, especially for elegant heeled shoes, adding a modern, yet at the same time, feminine, touch to open or closed toe sandals.
