s.Oliver RED LABEL Women

From rugged combat boots to feminine long boots – the shoe models in the s.Oliver Shoes Autumn/Winter 2020 collection are diverse and trend-aware once again this season. Biker and Chelsea boots get a sporty upgrade in the coming season, with extra-wide elastic sections, hiking elements and strong soles. Long-standing favourites, animal print and check patterns, remain as fashion highlights, redefined with crocodile embossing and fake fur details. Cowboy boots and boots are among the season’s “it” pieces. The range of sneakers has been expanded with high-top models, warm linings and strong profiled soles, ready for winter. Brown is the new black: warm brown tones dominate the collection. As well as trendy brown, there is a host of other lush, natural tones such as saffron, rust and olive.

It‘s outdoor season
The hiking trend is no longer reserved for outdoorsy types. Robust lace-up hiking boots are teamed with delicate dresses or skirts, creating a trendy break in style. Lace-up crocodile-look boots are animal eye-catchers in the golden season: time for an autumn stroll! This season, there is also an emphasis on combat and Chelsea boots with extra-strong soles. For a feminine, rock touch, smart eye-catchers like studs, diamante stones, contrasting laces and striking buckles decorate the models. The collection is defined by a mix of chic and edgy, without neglecting functionality, flexibility or quality. Thanks to the integrated TEX membrane, feet stay warm and dry even in the rain.

Wild wild West
Cowboy boots and boots with mid-height heels and pointed toecaps are the trend topic of the season and enjoying a real revival. In the proper style with crocodile embossing, studs and tonal embroidery, they are the must-have for all cowgirls. Models with tall shafts are perfect teamed with dresses and skirts, while the shorter version is the ideal companion for flared jeans. For an extra stylish touch, wide paper bag trousers are tucked into the boots.

Keep it classy
Alongside overknees, which were a real it piece in the last winter seasons, a wider boot trend is now dominating the colder months. Long boots are enjoying a comeback, as the perfect match for calf-length skirts and dresses – the new stars in the clothes sector. Seventies style comes in the form of chic slouchy boots, which slide casually down the calf, while pumps are evergreens that are given a new lease of life with fashionable autumn colours.

s.Oliver RED LABEL
Men

Practical is the new stylish
High-quality material, robust soles and timeless design – the s.Oliver Shoes Autumn/Winter 2020 collection is defined by modernity and urban style, without neglecting functionality, flexibility and lightness. The credo is stylish shoes for everyone, be it for business or leisure. The diverse materials used, complemented by removable (felt) insoles with soft padding, are dedicated to the wearer’s high standards. The lace-up boots, Chelsea boots and leather sneakers offer not just a comfortable fit, but also an extremely fashionable character.
The season’s absolute trend colour is brown in every shade: from warm cognac to saffron. Contrasting quilted seams, animal embossing and coloured laces are subtle eye-catchers. The men’s shoes are thus an all-round accessory for an upper-casual style.

Fashion forecast: Sneakers
Even in the coldest months, there is no need for men to put away their favourite sneakers. With raised, high-profile soles, warm lining and felt insoles, they are all ready for winter. The overall look is clean and restrained, yet with striking, voluminous soles that mark out a trendsetter. Some styles stand out with subtle colour blocking. Additional fashion accents come in the form of coloured decorative seams, soles and linings, as well as perforated materials. High-polished sneakers in smooth leather versions with slim lasts are casual, yet still suitable for the office.
The first signs of the hiking trend are now making their way into sneakers. High tops with hook laces or low tops with typical two-colour twisted laces, with or without warm lining, display fashionable urbanity with a retro wink.

Urban mountain climbers
Into the woods – hiking boots are this season’s big boot trend. Robust trekking boots with thick profile soles and the typical hooks and D-rings are given a design upgrade with new details. Embossed leather sections in crocodile orsnake, multi-coloured laces and vintage looks bring the world of the mountains into the urban valleys.

Countryside
Leather lace-up boots have plenty of volume this winter, counteracted by a clean look. Striking frame seams and strong  profile soles reinforce the “heavy” look – while actually being light to wear. Material mixes with canvas, velour leather and animal embossing are exciting here. Crocodile and snake looks on the shaft, heel and lacing provide elegant highlights. Teddy fur linings pick up on the outdoor spirit, while still remaining contemporary and urban.

Daily business
Dress for success! Chelseas with coloured sections, derbys with slim lasts and elegant laceup ankle boots made from high-quality nubuck leather are the fashion partners of suits etc. The SO FLEX technology impresses all the way up to executive level.

The additional TEX membrane ensures great all-round protection in all weather conditions.

Snow queens Girls
In Autumn/Winter 2020, the girls are living the dream of a snow queen.

s.Oliver BLACK LABEL Women

Naturalness, comfort and fashionable trend – those are the key words for the new BLACK LABEL collection for Autumn/Winter 2020. The spotlight is therefore on natural materials in natural colours with SOFT FOAM and/or SO FLEX technology. The diverse range extends from pointed stiletto pumps to classic Chelseas, trendy cowboy boots, elegant reduced sneakers, heeled boots and even long boots. What they all have in common is their high comfort standard.

Crocodile negotiations
The negotiations for the right choice of shoe are now closed – the crocodile trend is now ruling shoe fashion. Just as wild and exciting as the long-standing favourite leopard print, but it is cooler and more elegant thanks to its subtle restraint. The exotic reptile pattern is seen on pumps, pointed stiletto boots and lace-up ankle boots and refines any office look – as an all-over pattern or an accent.

New Western chic
After a long disappearance, cowboy boots have returned to the catwalks of the fashion capitals. Once reserved for American cowboys in the Wild West, they have been given a fashionable twist in the new Autumn/Winter season, making them perfect for street wear. Soft suede and smooth leather looks with subtle heels give the otherwise rugged boots an elegant character for the BLACK LABEL collection. Decorative seams and fashionable embroidery complete the look.

Crumple zone
As well as classic riding boots, slouchy boots are the boots of the season. The trend from the 1970s is celebrating a big comeback this year. What makes slouchy boots special? They have an extra-wide shaft with a very loose fit that falls in wrinkles. They are especially stylish when combined with midi skirts. In Autumn/Winter, s.Oliver Shoes is focusing on
suede-look boots with kitten heels.
