Sporty shoe theme for children for next spring/summer
Sep '09
Dynamic, cool and casual. The new children's shoes for Spring/Summer 2010 are 'great sports'. Reflecting the needs of active and sporty boys and girls the collections feature a wide range of functional sneakers and sandals. The designers drew their inspiration here from typical outdoor sports like rafting, canyoning and trekking. Natural and brown tones play the key role in this segment.

Cheerful colour accents bring bold orange, turquoise and cobalt blue to the fore. Functional elements like Velcro fasteners, quick-tie laces, mesh and neoprene feature in the design of sneakers and sandals. Grainy, non-slip soles with intarsia or vintage effects underline the rustic note of this sporty shoe theme.

Fashion-conscious girls will delight at the large choice of Roman and gladiatorstyle sandals. Numerous straps, floral trims and fringes decorate the styles picking up on that hot hippie trend. Ballerinas remain key. Sporty variations with flexible soles mark out the direction here. Pastel tones are no longer the reserve of the youngest amongst us: even 'grown-up girls' will favour rose, lilac and mint next summer. Metallics add a touch of glamour to children's shoe fashions in 2010.

Loud and colourful beach sandals in that Waikiki look suggest we are in for a hot summer. No summer without canvas. The canvas shoe story revs up for another successful season. Low shoes and mid-cut styles with pale soles and laces are the perfect complement to drainpipes and rolled-up jeans. Tattoo elements and discreet embroidery create individual accents. Deck shoes and moccasin styles also pick up on the yachting and sailing themes for children, too. Clear colours like blue, white and red look authentic.

At GDS – International Event for Shoes & Accessories from 11 to 13 September 2009 a total of 765 exhibitors with over 1,800 collections presented their trends for Spring/Summer 2010 and the current season. Of these 130 babies' and children's shoe suppliers were presented here, either as part of their collections in the different lifestyle worlds at GDS or in the Kidwalk area in Hall 7a. The next GDS will be held in Düsseldorf from 12 to 14 March 2010.
