Shoe trends S/S 2018 – The new Gabor collection

Shoe trends S/S 2018 – The new Gabor collection

With its new collection for S/S 2018, Gabor is once more offering an enormous selection of shoes for every occasion. The women’s shoe specialist offers 400 models in 3,000 versions – from sporty sneakers to elegant pumps. The “soft” and “light” attributes are thus a common theme throughout the whole collection.
Fashionable highlights, unusual materials and feminine details give the whole collection a fresh, modern image, but with every innovation, Gabor remains true to its great strengths: a perfect fit and optimal wear comfort.
 

Shoe types
Gabor has further expanded its range of trainers. As well as being very functional, Gabor trainers win you over with high-quality materials. Very sporty styles are complemented with an expanded range of trainers with a feminine look. Massive cup soles are on trend, but with Gabor, they remain as light as a feather.
Sporty running styles are often combined with sparkle, rhinestone embellishments or beads.

Ballerina lace-ups with dainty satin ribbon and a fine trim or new dandies with changeable footbed are feminine alternatives to trainers.

Just as fresh are sporty ballerina shoes with bright light-cell soles. You often see elaborate embroidery on ballerina shoes and moccasins.

Gabor is expanding its very successful range of pumps with backless varieties. There is therefore a larger range of sabots and sling pumps, as well as block pumps.

Fashionable highlights are variants with style elements from the 1970s, such as trapezium sections, fringe straps and large buckles.

As far as open shoes are concerned, we set the tone with sandals with accentuated soles and sandals with wedges or platforms.

New city trekking sandals are on their way. The successful range of sandals with heel caps is being expanded. Mules are becoming more important and are often made by Gabor out of particularly noble materials.

Gabor has expanded its range of footbed sandals and footbed mules. Sandals with changeable footbed are also part of the range.

Colours
Different tones of pink with interesting materials, e.g. pleated or whitewashed, create interesting looks. White also remains an important colour, while nude and skin tones, light grey and pastel tones determine the colour image. We can also see a lot of blue in various shades, especially denim blue. Olive and khaki tones are new, and powerful red can be found as a signal colour.

Materials
Full-grain and smooth leather are equally represented. What is particularly interesting is leather with a metallic shine or holographic effects. Denim is also  sed. Knitted upper parts are new and bang on trend.

Adornments and Decors
Important decorative elements are soft, bound sets, bead looks, decorative flower or animal motifs, embroidery and patterns with delicate metal plates.

Outer soles / Bottoms
Generally, accented, hefty soles made of materials as light as a feather are on trend. Voluminous cup soles have in part a 3D look. White remains important, but soles are often also colour-coordinated with the upper material. Soles braided with different stripes, partly shiny, partly multicoloured
or with seams result in a fresh look. For sandals especially, heels, wedges and platforms are decorated with the upper material or with jute, velvet and cork. Edges and stripes, e.g. with braided cords, accentuate the soles. A low heel height is on trend.

Features
Gabor offers fashionable shoes with a particularly high wear comfort. As well as select, smooth upper surface materials and a soft, padded inside, functional changeable footbeds and shock-absorbing outer soles, provide for absolute wear comfort, even in the more elegant city styles. Gabor therefore often offers heeled shoes with changeable footbeds.

Special processing, such as e.g. sacchettos or moccasins, provide particular wear comfort and high flexibility. Models with air chamber soles using the hovercraft principle improve wear feel and comfort too.

Gabor is bringing pumps with the Soft&Smart principle as a new featured variant: the covered sole is softly padded from heel to toe and fitted with additional absorption in the heel and ball area.

Fit
Gabor’s promise is to be able to offer the ideal fitting shoe for as many women and feet as possible. Gabor shoes are therefore available in different widths (F / G / H) and also in extra-large sizes up to size 11 (46).

A speciality is the fitting form concept “Best Fitting”. For this, the contact surface of the normal ball width (F) is widened, which provides additional room and more comfort for the forefoot.

Rollingsoft sensitive
With its specially developed natural running soles, rollingsoft sensitive shoes combine the advantage of rocker bottom soles with perfect flexibility: independently moving elements enable the foot the greatest freedom of movement. Rollingsoft sensitive comes in a very sporty design in the latest trendy colours. They are as light as a feather, have a high-quality leather interior and changeable footbeds. A new addition is the sandal with changeable footbed and transparent sole look.

Gabor sport
Gabor sport is back in S/S 18 with three lines: anatomic system, dynamic technology and ultra-light function. Innovative features make Gabor sport shoes a must-have for women on the move.
