MEN’S 2020 SPRING/SUMMER FOOTWEAR COLLECTION
Breathability, thermo-regulation and waterproofness are the three cornerstones upon which GEOX has built over the years the identity of a brand which is famous worldwide not only for products with peerless technical qualities achieved via ongoing research but also for a typically Italian aesthetic which successfully toes the line between trendiness and tradition. Once again, the Spring-Summer 2020 season unveils a series of fresh-looking models enhanced with trailblazing technological solutions designed to meet the refined tastes of a contemporary man and to satisfy his desire for a sensation of well-being.
The great novelty for the season is Levita – a featherlight slip-on sneaker with an adjustable fit thanks to the innovative elasticated fastening system in a contrasting colour. Available in white, black, glacier grey, charcoal or blue, Levita is a combination of leather and fabric and features some special openings which reveal for the very first time a glimpse of the breathable waterproof membrane positioned inside the outsole. On the other hand, Aerantis confirms its status as a staple piece of male footwear. Crafted from various types of materials so it is suitable for any time of the season, it has a new guise which boasts vibrant shades, such as blue, red or russet, but also a timelessly attractive glacier grey. Cleverly enhanced with a sleek white outsole, the tapering silhouette of this model conceals an elaborate ventilation system able to provide outstanding levels of breathability.
Nebula, the acclaimed urban sneaker from GEOX, has been revived with neon-yellow mesh or comes in blue or glacier-grey suede for the summer season. Nexside also comes to life with new materials and on-trend shades and is set on a colour-contrast outsole endowed with the Side Transpiration System; then, there is Modual, the very epitome of versatility with a removable inner sock which means you can take on any weather conditions with complete confidence. Light, flexible, cushioned and naturally breathable, the new running shoes also benefit from tactile combinations of materials and strikingly attractive colour schemes – mesh, leather, a transparent effect and neon accents for the sporty models; suede leather, knits and natural tones for the more elegant styles.
Perfect for the summer season, suede crops up alongside vintage-style or woven-print leather on new elegant-looking footwear with a mellow feel – loafers, high-top and low-top lace-ups, desert boots and Chelsea boots whose pristine silhouettes are tempered by an informal lived-in allure. Brown, blue and dove grey are an insouciant alternative colour palette to the formal restraint and classic impeccability of the GEOX Leather models, retaining, nevertheless, the breathable waterproof design of the latter. In contrast, edgy pared-back sandals, driving loafers in bright pastel shades and woven-effect leather slip-ons set on rubber-and-jute outsoles are suitable for leisure pursuits, either on the beach or around town.
