s.Oliver Women

Sportiness and comfort – these key words have long determined the shoe trends and still define the Spring/Summer 2021 collection from s.Oliver Shoes Women. With demand for authentic looks growing, many retro themes are being picked up and reinterpreted. Heritage sneakers, wedges, footbed sandals and block heels represent a new casualness with a certain chic. Natural and classy is the key – the value of the materials used teamed with artisan details demonstrates a new quality and reflects the current zeitgeist.
Another new innovation for women this season is the OrthoLite technology: Special OrthoLite cover soles bounce back 40% of the energy consumed while walking, creating the ultimate wearing comfort. The natural, earthy colours in the Spring/Summer collection are the perfect match for the generally lighter look of the outer clothing. They are complemented by clear pastel colours on the shoe models.

Naturals
Destination summer: Models made from natural materials like leather, raffia, canvas and cork transport us effortlessly into the warmer months. Wedges with cork heels and crocodile
skin embossing conjure up endless legs. Deep footbed sandals make every look unbeatably relaxed, while flats with braided leather straps are ideal teams with a romantic millefleur
blouse and flowing palazzo trousers.

Back to the roots
Farah Fawcett knew it even back then – retro sneakers combine casualness with heritage and are truly eye-catching in soft colour combinations. The cool models, some deliberately kept clean-cut, support the value and sportiness of the collection. Classic white sneakers, perhaps with perforations, are a safe investment once again this season. High-cut canvas sneakers with the typical honeycoloured cup sole take us casually through summer and are a great style break teamed with girly ruffled dresses. Monochrome sneakers in a range of colours, with snake skin details on the heels and tongues, make new statements.

Comfort meets classic
Pointed ballerinas and loafers made from soft nappa leather in natural shades, either very simple or decorated with a bow or buckle, appear to lengthen the leg, offer amazing comfort and are ideal for any business meeting. Combined with narrow, masculine trouser shapes, the new ballerinas bring some excitement to the look. Delicate strap sandals in summery colours make the feet shine and are an essential addition to a stroll through town. Those who want to go high can choose pointed pumps with a slimline silhouette and integrated SO FLEX technology.

s.Oliver Men

Welcome to the new comfort zone
Lightweight, flexible and comfortable combined with high fashion standards – that is the idea behind the sporty Spring/Summer collection 2021. From deep footbed sandals to sneakers with transparent soles and classic leather slippers, the men’s models are ideal for anyone in any situation – be it office, leisure, beach or home. The casual theme is found throughout the collection. The new OrthoLite cover sole in selected sneakers ensures ultimate wearing comfort. 40 percent of the energy consumed while walking is bounced back by the OrthoLite sole, making the shoe a true hero for everyday use – say goodbye to tired feet! Green in various nuances, from mint to moss, is the trend colour of the season and is found both in details and all over. Decorative seams, coloured sole elements and high-quality material embossing are exciting eye-catchers and underscore the s.Oliver casual look.

Court Stars
Stan Smith would have loved them – clean, white shell sole sneakers with subtle colour accents on laces and heel caps. Minimalistic white sneakers are as trendy as ever. But thanks to the choice of colour blocks and familiar shapes from the 1990s, coloured runner styles have also reinvented themselves with clear retro elements – always old school.

Lightweights
Sneakers in a wide range of shapes and variants continue to determine the collection image, but the models all have one thing in common: they are extremely lightweight. That means that a high-cut fabric sneaker is still the right choice even at high temperatures and has even become the season’s must-have.

Summer Time
Time to put on your swimming shorts, slip on the casual beach sandals with padded real leather cover soles and head to the nearest lake or beach. Also ideal for poolside fun are our classic pool sandals with toe separators and rubber soles, which have been given a comfort update with SOFT FOAM. Our new sandals with toe separators create a more urban look, while a slightly raised sole with transparent heel cushioning provides optimum comfort. A city tour can now be comfortable even in sandals with toe separators. The classic deep footbed sandal is an essential once again this season, casually styled with rolled-up chinos and a shirt.

9 to 5
For a timeless yet fashionable look in the office, choose lace-ups made from soft embossed leather and classic slippers with slimline silhouettes. Coloured sole elements create an exciting look and that special something in the otherwise very clean-cut models. Thanks to the ultra-comfortable SO FLEX technology, everyone can afford maximum comfort. Clean shell sole sneakers made from perforated real leather are ideal for casual Fridays.

s.Oliver Junior

The new shoe collection for s.Oliver Junior is ideal for adventurous kids – always on the move and constantly looking for something new. To make sure they succeed in whatever adventure they choose in the great outdoors, in their free time or in the school playground, the clear focus is on sportiness. Sneakers of all kinds shape the image of the collection. The common denominator is a clean look, embellished with practical details. Velcro, elastic laces and internal zips make putting on and taking off the shoes child’s play. White sneakers are particularly prominent for kids.
New for this Spring/Summer are models in the retro look of the early 1980s. Footbed sandals are a must for hot summer days, while trendy trekking sandals are ideal for summer tours of discovery. There are also a few take-downs from the adult collections for those who want a mini-me look with mum or dad.
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.

Who runs the world? Girls!
Off to Wimbledon and back – tennis is making its way into the kids’ shoe rack. Clean, white sneakers impress with subtle colour accents and adorn the feat of any future Serena Williams.
