The Dad Shoe is Back For Milan Men’s Digital Fashion Week

Hate it or love it, the “dad shoe” has made its return at Milan Men’s digital fashion week.

With Gucci Recalibrating its calendar and Miuccia Prada to share the spotlight with RAF Simons as of September, spring ‘21 marks a season of transition for bands across the board.

Rather than exploring new territory, designers opted for functionality with reassuringly safe bets and commercial classics they knew they could rely on in a difficult market. While the runways had begun to feature more dress shoes and hiker hybrids in recent seasons, the clunky, dorky “dad” has been a mainstay in the athletic and mass markets. Bottom line? Nothing says reliable like the dad shoe.
