10 best shoes at the Milan Men ‘s Fashion Week in the spring of 2023

Since the spring-summer ’23 season at Milan Men’s Fashion Week is over and dusty, one trend stands above all: Next year will be something for everyone. As fashion continues to find its foothold (without a play on words) in the world after (and the current) pandemic, it seems that it is individuality that defines fashion for all genders.

The men’s season in Milan in the spring of the 23rd continued to push the shoe over the once ubiquitous fashion sneakers, although there is still room for an athletic element in every collection. For any season of warm weather in the recent past, slippery sandals can be expected. Elsewhere

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

1. Pradine Cuban heels with a western edge

The Italian fashion brand is known to set the tone for both styling and individual products, and both have made big statements for menswear in the spring of ’23. Prada continued to show off shorts with a black leather shoe, this time opting for a black leather boot with a Cuban heel and a slightly Western flair to fill the silhouette, reflecting the current trend of women’s footwear that is fast becoming more popular even as the peak of hot summer weather approaches. And while street stylists want to pair their black shoes with white socks, Miuccia and Raf are clearly saying here: black socks only with this look.

2. Fendi inflated slides

For all your experimenting with gender codes (cracked top suits! pearls! Mary Janes!), Fendi also knows that everyone will want a lightweight slip-on shoe during the summer. The brand has been offering one for a long time, but this time it took simple sandals and inflated it with its double F monogram for a shoe destined to be a hit by the pool.

3. JW Anderson’s mega hardware moccasins

The footwear designed by Jonathan Anderson for both his JW Anderson and Loewe lines are insignificant hits for more nuanced fashion followers, especially slip-on mules with recognizable large chain details. Anderson kept the big hardware trend for spring 23 with a series of moccasins with slides, made in primary shades with a unique silver metal plate that extends over the top.

4. 1017 Alyx 9SM Mono rubber boots

Whatever the trend of molded rubber boots has begun, recent debuts prove that there is still more than enough room to experiment with silhouette and material. Matthew Williams may have teased the new Nike collaboration in the ’23 spring collection for his 1017 Alyx 9SM label, but the designer Mono boots (upgrade from the Mono slide) were inevitably more interesting.

5. Versace’s Greca slides

One is waiting for Versace’s Medusa platforms to move to the brand’s men’s runway. Until that day, there are these Greek flat sandals, the direct opposite of the platform in height, but no less full of details, with their contrasting seams.

6. Gucci boots Ha Ha Ha with a heart-shaped print

Gucci’s new men’s clothing collaboration between Harry Styles and creative director Alessandro Michele may not technically be part of the spring ’23 season, but his debut in Milan included a remarkable pair of white leather boots accented with a unique red heart that will surely go through many seasons as a collector’s item when he debuts in October.

7. Moschino rubber boots trompe l’oeil

Call it the Kanye West effect. One giant Red Wing and Balenciaga boots return to the catwalks in more creative ways, including Moschino Spring Summer ’23, where Jeremy Scott took his trompe l’oeil sketch motif (previously seen in women’s collections) in a pair of black knee-high leather boots with shape of work clothes.

8. Santoni’s hardware moccasins

Echoing JW Anderson’s mega slide hardware, Santoni introduced the classic moccasin using a hardware panel also seen in his women’s fall ’22 collections (on a high-heeled pump, no less). The gold-colored panel offers the right amount of glitter and a classic-shaped dress.

9. Etro multi-purpose suede shoelaces

At a time when fashion sneakers are losing some ground, but the shoe still looks a bit IRL, there is plenty of room for a casual shoe to tie. Get into Etro’s lace-up boots, Wallabee-style boots with contrasting seams that make you feel like a beach even if it can be worn with a suit.

10. Brioni sandals with a ring

In the season when thong sandals appeared several times – and bare feet were even a thing – Brioni’s sandals with rings offer a more elegant look of men’s footwear that can hardly be found. Made from the simplest neutral leather, it is an easy way to pick up a wardrobe for summer vacation.
