It’s never too soon for beautiful things to freshen up and liven up your assortment. Isn’t it?
This also includes the children’s shoe segment. Especially here, it’s worth keeping an eye out for highlights. Best opportunities for this were recently at SHOES DÜSSELDORF, where numerous exciting and interesting kids brands showcased themselves.


In addition to many well-known brands, there are new, exciting collections to discover. Especially in these times, it is worthwhile to look beyond the famous horizon. Because one thing is certain: the biggest enemy of fashion is monotony. Apart from that, the thrill of discovering something new – isn’t that exactly what makes a good trade fair?

Comfort meets fashion

Let’s be honest, who wants to wear shoes that are uncomfortable today? Probably nobody! And that’s why I always find it difficult to use the term “comfortable shoes” or “comfort shoes” when I write about this segment. Even a fashionable shoe has to be comfortable. And a comfortable shoe has to be as fashionable as possible.

MOVE ON: Go, look, buy!

In addition to the line-up of high-fashion and high-quality shoes for women, men and children, buyers also appreciate the possibility at SHOES DÜSSELDORF to find and order complementing products, such as accessories and fashion it pieces for their stores. “The outfit idea is centre stage here. We view it as our task to give footwear retailers ideas of how to further upgrade and emotionalise their stores by means of fashion and accessories”, says Igedo Director Ulrike Kähler, summing up the brief for a successful trade show. The motto, “Move on”, is taken literally. “We are not standing still either. We constantly evolve – with the aim of offering retail a curated line-up of ranges and a perfect place for orders, communication and networking”, says Ulrike Kähler. In all of this individuality is key: the many small, openly designed stands invite visitors to discover new labels. Innovation and inspiration also featured in the “Kids Corner”, which was designed like a concept store in cooperation with the organiser Squares.
