s.Oliver Women

Evolution not revolution
– According to this motto s.Oliver Shoes is launching the new Spring/Summer 2022 season. The way people view values and quality of life has changed dramatically over the last eighteen months. Their desire for less speed and longing for stability and security is also reflected in shoe fashions. Key themes like comfort and functionality are everywhere. s.Oliver is also focusing on its strengths, consistently expanding the casual aspect of the collection, right down to the tiniest, lovingly created detail.

The range of sneakers has been expanded even further, with new styles added. Outdoor-inspired styles have become established in sandals, which are impressively light despite their chunky appearance. Sophisticated new branding and subtle metallic inserts are just as surprising as the resurrection of the slipper, which has been given a fashionable upgrade. Nature-inspired themes like jute, espadrille soles, canvas and cork inspire summer feelings and a sense of easy living. In summary, monochrome colours, summer Chelsea and lace-up boots with strong textured soles are perfect companions for soft flowery dresses and trendy flared trousers.

With a huge range of colours in pastels especially, the collection radiates a casual feel. It can be worn 24/7, is modern without being over-the-top, and displays new sustainability standards. The s.Oliver Women collection is available in the sizes 36 to 42.

WE CARE
The s.Oliver Group has been implementing a wide range of sustainability measures and initiatives under the claim “WE CARE– for PEOPLE, the PLANET and the FUTURE” since 2019. Many of the activities have been an integral part of the corporate philosophy for many years now, while the company is increasing its commitment in the product and communication fields.
Following the introduction of the vegan shoe capsule for Autumn/Winter 2021, there will now also be a WE CARE shoe collection for the Spring/Summer season. A shoe must meet two criteria to qualify for “WE CARE” status: Firstly, it must be made of leather from responsible leather production. The tanners are certified by the Leather Working Group*. Secondly, the inner lining must be made predominantly of recycled polyester materials based on PET bottles.
*Leather Working Group: Certification of leather production based on ethical, social, occupational safety and animal rights standards.

VEGAN SHOES
The VEGAN SHOES collection emphasises the ethical values of a vegan lifestyle. It offers the same standards in terms of look, quality and comfort that is familiar in all s.Oliver products. Vegan does not mean compromising – in fact, we are offering added value. The shoes are marked with VEGAN SHOES hangtags so that customers can immediately and easily recognise them at the POS.

Natural Feeling
Focusing on nature brings with it a new sense of peace and relaxation. Rugged natural materials like canvas, sometimes combined with velour leather, reflect this trend perfectly. Espadrilles soles are used not only on flats and wedges, but also on sneakers. Jute, cork and raffia also represent the authentic natural look.

Sporty Spice
The sneaker boom continues, but the looks are significantly reduced. Hybrid and retro sneakers with (pastel) contrasts are just as important as running and city sneakers. Trekking-inspired sandals with padded and tube-like straps complement the casual theme. Despite their chunky look, they are actually real lightweights and incredibly comfortable to wear.

Ice, Ice Baby
Everything in the ice cream shop – vanilla, raspberry, pistachio and mint get everyone in the mood for summer holidays, sunshine and the seaside. Either solo or in comination with each other, the padded strap sandals, running sneakers and summer boots radiate girly charm that contrasts perfectly with current clothing trends: oversized shirts, crop tops and wide, flared culottes made from rugged cotton twill. Romantic flower prints are ideal for the pastel look and are played either as an all-over design on the upper or as a detail in the form of shoe eyelets.

ORTHOLITE
Say goodbye to tired feet! The OrthoLite cover sole brings ultimate wearing comfort thanks to energy recovery. Due to the bounce-back from the padded sole, 40% of the energy consumed while walking is recovered, setting new standards of comfort.

REMOVABLE FOOTBED
The REMOVABLE FOOTBED adapts to the needs of the feet – without sacrificing fashion trends. It can be easily removed from the shoe, cleaned and aired and swapped for your own insert.

SOFT FOAM
With our SOFT FOAM sole, walking becomes even more comfortable – all day long! This is ensured by a soft foam layer between the cover sole and the insole, which optimally and individually adapts to the shape of the foot.

SO FLEX
Absolute flexibility is at the forefront of SO FLEX. Thanks to the extremely flexible, soft and innovative sole construction, it feels like walking on clouds. In addition, the look does not get a raw deal either – a clean and neat appearance is a must for our smart models.

s.Oliver Men

Sporty looks and casual modernity
The new Spring/Summer collection from s.Oliver Shoes comprises authentic, sporty and modern elements melded with contemporary comfort and lightness. In short – it’s all about casual!
Customers are not only looking for simple, comfortable looks, but also have a greater desire for harmony and security. BUT, being at one with nature is very crucial as sustainibility is more important than ever.

Already dominant, the sneaker section has been expanded even further, with sporty and hybrid styles now defining the look of the collection. Most people stay true to their favourite sneakers once they’ve found them – so many of the bestsellers are back, particularly among the vulca styles. Enhanced with innovative details and fresh colours, they are familiar yet new.
But despite the sneaker dominance, there is still space for open styles like footbed and beach sandals. Boat shoes are also enjoying a comeback, while light slip-ons are also a must-have for summer.

All the styles share extreme lightness and functionality. The repertoire includes not only removable footbeds, but also soft foam, models with an extra-wide forefoot, and a cover sole for energy recovery. The s.Oliver Men collection is available in sizes 40 to 47.

Boat Trip
Welcome back, boat shoe! An old familiar friend has returned. And no wonder – its relaxed yet smart look is the perfect fit for the collection’s casual theme. The classic version with its white sole and leather cord is now joined by a mix of sneaker and boat shoe, with a mottled white sneaker sole giving the hybrid a surprising twist. Light canvas slip-ons complete the planned boat trip with friends.

Sneaker Parade
Whenever you think there is no more, a new sneaker always hits the floor! That’s one explanation for the never-ending sneaker trend. The other might be – what else? New technical materials that are ever more functional and innovative sole constructions that are truly lightweight despite their chunky look make sneakers number one in men’s shoe fashion.
The range extends from classic canvas vulca styles, colour block runners and clean old school models to hi-tech looks with two-colour mesh and chunky textured white soles. Refined sneakers made of sustainable leather move seamlessly from the office to drinks after work.

s.Oliver Junior

Child-oriented take-downs for little adventurer
Comfort + functionality + fashionable details = the perfect children’s shoe. This is the formula on which the s.Oliver Junior Spring/Summer collection is based. Casual footbed sandals in camouflage look, colourful running sneakers with heel stabilisers, and sporty sandals in woven look are the ideal companions for every adventure on the way to the pool, at school or when playing in the park. The only thing missing is a delicious ice cream. Talking of ice cream – the soft colours of our favourite food not only taste great, they also melt hearts as part of the perfect look for children’s feet.

Practical Velcro, elastic and quick-lace systems make putting shoes on and off easier. The models with integrated SOFT FOAM sole make walking even more comfortable: The soft foam layer between the cover sole and insole, which adapts individually to the shape of the foot, is now standard in all children’s shoes.

The s.Oliver Junior collection is available in various size ranges (25-32, and 28-39).

Matching pairs
When I grow up... I might wear size 39 or 45 shoes too. But I can already match Mum or Dad now!
The mini-me theme is not new, but is being used even more consistently and emphatically this season. Looks that are trendy for parents are now also found in mini versions for children: Pastel shades, subtle glitter looks, flower prints, natural themes for the girls and sneakers in commercial colours with small pop-up details or retro styles for the boys.
For an even more authentic look, the soles of the trekking/sporty sandals and sneakers are slightly raised and more chunky, but without being heavier or harder. Despite the take-downs, they are still children’s shoes whose many vital, functional features do not detract from their cute character.

Ready, steady, go!
It’s so practical that THE sneaker of the summer originates from running – so the kids can race into summer in style. The bright colour combinations and striking design with heel stabiliser (in contrasting colours) make them truly eye-catching and unbeatably casual.
Just as for adults, the range of vulcanised sneakers for kids has been expanded further, with new styles in canvas, fabric and imitation nubuck.
