From Hand-Painted Tribute Sneakers to Stabilizing Toddler Shoes

 - Sep 30, 2018
These September 2018 shoe trends merge design aesthetics with functional components seamlessly. The shoes range from styles built for endurance and performance to those designed for casual wear in multiple terrains.

An example of this month's innovative footwear is Project Blitz's collaborative project alongside MR. BRAINWASH as the duo designs a selection of shoes that honor the late DJ AM. The range sees a series of popular silhouettes that boast paint splatter designs throughout as a nod to the late musician. The sneaker boxes also feature the same respective patterns to emphasize the artist's touches.

Another example of this month's shoe concepts is Hush Puppies' new Paw-Flex shoe technology which supports young children who are just learning how to walk. It is designed to be flexible and comfortable, but most importantly provides stability with its traction and memory foam at its footbed to cradle the heel.
