Footwear is one sartorial area where menswear designers can toe the line (nudge, nudge) between safety and outlandishness. This season's men's shows turned out lots of innovative shoe details, like laces knotted into tiny rock-climbing courses at Pringle of Scotland, holographic materials at Kenzo, and armored heels at Louis Vuitton. Meanwhile, Mugler showed glittery brogues in a nice understated slate gray, and Moschino aired rubber soles in bright shades of lime and red.
