SOLE MATES - TREND ALERT
Men's tailored and casual styles get a fresh update this Fall thanks to an influx of intriguing outsole details. Lug sole Oxfords get a boost in height and a dash of color when tri-tone braided layers are added. The combination outsole remains popular, with thick espadrille rope added to a foam outsole. Leather welt details move to center stage with contrasting colors and decorative blanket topstitching. While outsole details are particularly suited to the Oxford, slip-ons, desert boots and high-top sneakers also receive some added texture and dimension.
