From Modern Footwear Designs to Generational Fashion

By: Jaime Neely - Published: • References:
Designers today are finding inspiration for their designs from the past, the present and the future, which is demonstrated in the high volume of generational fashion collections on modern runways. Collections paying tribute to the different decades such as the 70s, to different cultures like South East Asia and important life experiences like college, are all materializing in popular designers' collections.

These ideas are also popular in today's footwear designs. Running shoes especially are no longer designed to exclusively optimize functionality, but instead are beginning to incorporate bold colors and funky patterns, as is seen with Nike's Stained Sneaker Collaborations and Reebok's Radiant Tribal Sneakers.
