Trims, mixed textures enrich new casual shoes


A synthesis of fabric, leather and bold decorations bring a fresh look to the line.




  • Embellished pairs: The latest women’s casual shoes highlight bold trimmings. Large bows and allover paillettes are commonly adopted. Floral, polka-dot and striped patterns are likewise utilized. For stronger visual impact, manufacturers complement the adornments with bright colors. Men’s models also come in vivid hues.
  • Combination materials: Suppliers are incorporating two materials in the uppers. Fabric and straw, and denim and cow suede are some examples. Textiles are preferred for spring designs, while PU leather is more popular in autumn styles.
  • Improved comfort: Because ballet flats generally have thinner outsoles than other types of casual shoes, makers add latex midsoles to cushion the feet. Companies also employ canvas for the uppers because the material is breathable and absorbent.
  • Price & sales forecasts: Owing to stable input costs, businesses will keep quotes steady in the next six months. Overseas revenue is expected to grow 5 to 10 percent this year.
