Even if it doesn’t feel like it, next summer is never very far away. And of course DEICHMANN is always ahead of the crowd in knowing which shoes we’ll be wearing in the coming season.
This time it will be comfortable wedges, summery espadrilles, light-as-a-feather sneakers or boho-style sandals. And on cooler days, we’ll be playing it safe with ankle boots in a suede-look or with floral prints. Whether with jeans or a summer dress, you’ll always look the part in this combination.
Metallic and glitter appliqués for sneakers and espadrilles will continue to be a big trend. Thick soles are also still very much in and they’re not only comfortable to walk on, but are also upping the style factor. Block heels, elegant stilettos and denim-look models are additional highlights to look forward to. Unusual add-ons like pom-poms or tassels, soft upper materials, prints and jute and woven looks impart an individual touch.Read more

More volume, easy chic and boho style
The fashion of spring and summer 2016 will be predominantly light and bright, and sporty styles will continue to play an important role.

Jumpsuits and maxi dresses in seventies style are taking the fashion world by storm. As well as delicate pastel tones, nude and beige, brilliant white is setting the tone and vibrant orange, mustard yellow, pink and cognac are just as popular.

Shoe Fashion Trends Spring/ Summer 2015
Lightness and sophisticated chic in light tones
Airy, light and casual are three words to describe the fashion of spring and summer 2015. Tops and dresses gently caress the figure with flowing fabrics. Wide-cut, cropped trousers – so-called culottes – and tight shorts are just as suitable for summer as wrap skirts in mini or midi. This season’s fashion favourite is the jumpsuit, which already caused a sensation back in the 70s and 80s. Even if black is still playing an important role, this season will be mainly defined by light and pastel colours. On-trend colours are white and white-similar colours, pink and champagne tones, light blue, mint, apricot and beige and nude.Read more
