s.Oliver Women

Authentic looks for the cold season
Casual and commercial, with a high standard of comfort, attention to detail and value – this is the DNA of the s.Oliver Shoes collection for the Autumn/Winter season 2021. Shoes that are authentic and easily to understand, that can be worn without much effort, but still leave the wearer enough room for individuality. While the all-encompassing theme of sportiness remains, new influences from the areas of heritage and elegance enrich the shoe design. Natural colours, refined styles and smart details make for exciting eye-catchers.

To match clothing trends featuring midi skirts, maxi dresses and shortened trouser shapes, the boot goes the extra mile and works its way up the calf – to high Chelsea boots and high
lace-ups.
Rugged, bottom-heavy ankle boots remain an important part of the collection. Chelseas with different shaft heights, a wide variety of elastic insert variations and high-character bottoms become a reinterpreted classic.

Sneakers retain their extreme sole designs, but the uppers are getting a more basic, high-quality look. The styles are cool and support the overall look as a fashion statement, but without being distracting. As the boot boom continues, boot shafts are also shifting upwards, making mid and high-cut models more popular.
The s.Oliver Women collection is available in sizes 36 to 42.

Matrix Reloaded
These rugged, robust boots with a neat profile look as if they came straight from the Matrix. These are the boots Neo and Trinity wore at the end of the 90s, and now they are back and trendier than ever – high-laced combat boots are making statements on the legs this winter. For the perfect style clash, combine them with feminine dresses and delicate satin skirts. Chelsea boots with extended shafts acquire a new look with their gritty, almost aggressive bottoms. The strong emphasis on the bottoms of the new calf-high boots combine the practical with the fashionable, because rarely has a woman made it through the winter so comfortably and with such dry feet.

Upgrade
Eye-catching feet! Metallic (gold) details in the form of studs, zippers, eyelets and sequins adorn the rugged lace-up boots or sneakers. The glamour factor fits perfectly with the widely praised elegance and value in fashion. The strong bottoms ensure that heritage looks with glen checks, houndstooth, checked pattern and corduroy don‘t look square, but ultra-modern. Trend-setters wear their trousers IN the boots to draw even more attention to the footwear.

Nature Feelings
Deceleration, cosiness and naturalness are the buzzwords of our time. In fashion, this is reflected in neutral natural shades like beige, taupe, olive, cognac and brown. Moreover, this winter is unthinkable without off-white and cream tones – they create the new winter white and are making a comeback. Lace-up combat boots in off-white paired with a maxi knit dress in the same colour would be a perfect example of the fashionable monochrome look.
The hiking theme with its functional character is making a big appearance again this winter. Sneaker hybrids with fake fur inserts or teddy plush complement the relaxed country chic, evolving into winter sneaker boots. High-cut sneakers with rugged soles are also important in the cold.

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.

TEX MEMBRANE
On wet and uncomfortable days, our functional shoes make the perfect companion! Thanks to the integrated TEX Membrane between the upper and lining material, the models are not only breathable, but also water and cold resistant at the same time.

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.

No more cold feet with SO ICE! Whether sporty or classic models with warm lining, wool or fake fur and also in combination with the TEX Membrane – here everyone will find their perfect shoe for the cold season!

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.

s.Oliver Men

Sometimes more is better
More comfort, more quality, more fashion. The men‘s shoe collection from s.Oliver features trendy styles that nevertheless anyone can wear and that meet the demand for total comfort. The use of new technologies such as FIT & RELAX with a more individual fit or the SYMPATEX material raises the collection to a higher level of quality. The OrthoLite insole in s.Oliver sneakers introduced last season also contributes to this. This autumn/winter, OrthoLite will also be extended to classic models, bringing the comfort of a sports shoe to these material blends.
The „casual“ theme continues to set the pace, so the sneaker and all the hybrids inspired by it can be seen everywhere. SYMPATEX or the TEX Membrane, mid or high cut and warm lining make them weather-resistant all-rounders.
Meanwhile, boots are gaining in prominence and are also a true alternative for passionate sneaker wearers, whether as Chelsea, lace-up or biker boots. Chunky soles and clunky silhouettes are still in and are characteristic of this boot trend.
The s.Oliver Men collection is available in sizes 40 to 47.

Outdoor Season
Let‘s go outside – heavy, high lace-up boots in combat style are top of the league when it comes to trends this winter. The striking boots with rugged profile soles and high shafts are ideal for excursions into nature. Shoelaces in different colours, material mixes and hiking elements highlight the urban explorer look and are perfectly complemented by cargo pants and chunky knitwear.

Cult classic
What was originally invented in London almost 200 years ago for horseback riding and then became a cult in the 1960s thanks to the Beatles has remained on shoe shelves to this day: the Chelsea boot. And this season the classic model is back again, because it simply cuts a fine figure to go with any style. Especially in the cold season, the Chelsea is the trendy alternative in the office to conventional lace-up boots. But the ankle boot with its typical elastic inserts on the sides also works with a leather jacket or knitwear. The most important style rule: shortened trouser length, which is what makes the shoe stand out. With strong profile bottoms and more volume in the upper, the Chelsea boot is also suitable for outdoor wear and goes perfectly with rolled-up chinos, hoodies and puffer jackets.

Our perennial favourite: sneaker
‚Not without my sneakers‘ is the motto this season, too, so innovative technologies are used to make this all-rounder resistant to wind and weather. Chunky bottoms are not only still in vogue, but also extremely weatherproof. Harmonious colour combinations, exciting mixtures of materials and deliberately placed eye-catchers give the models a new twist. Monochrome styles refine the look, retro-inspired shapes enhance the sporty trend and hybrids that combine maximum comfort and style are the perfect companions regardless of the occasion. Whether low, mid or high-cut models, or even hiking sneakers, the collection offers the right sneaker for everyone.

s.Oliver Junior

Mission clearly understood: with its clean and sporty statement, its easy-to-combine colours and sophisticated details, the collection is perfectly tailored to the needs of adventurous youngsters. Cool and casual for the boys, stylish and chic for the girls – this is what shoe fashion will look like in autumn/winter 2021/22.
Lined long boots and outdoor sneakers are just the thing for forays into nature. Combat boots make for a bold entrance in the schoolyard and Chelseas always love to join in the fun. Light crepe bottoms, higher shafts on the ankle boots and the cream colour in particular create a breath of fresh air.
The integrated TEX Membrane between the upper and lining material makes the shoes not only breathable, but also water and cold repellent at the same time. These functional booties or sneakers are the perfect companions on wet or unpleasant days.
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 the sizes 25 to 39.

GIRLS
Power girls
As if made for small protest marches, the mini Lara Crofts stomp their way through the winter – combat boots with striking profile bottoms are not only way ahead in terms of fashion, but are also perfect for wind and weather. So that it doesn‘t look all that tough, the boots are designed with
child-friendly details. Glitter laces, emojis and patent leather and iridescent surfaces turn a big fight into a little fuss at the drop of a hat.

All-rounder
Chelsea boots have belonged to every child‘s shoe cabinet for many seasons. Why? They can be put on and taken off in a flash without any annoying fasteners. Because more time means more fun and more time on the playground. The typical elastic inserts at the sides offer plenty of freedom in design, so that the elastic band can also take the form of a glitter star or be decorated with rocking studs. Little ladies wear the trendy crocodile look tone-on-tone in the heels of their Chelseas.
