Spring is here and its time to clean out your shoe closet and add some fresh new kicks for the season. Sharon Mosley has all the exclusive shoes tips you’ll need during shoe shopping!
The Spring Shoe Scene
Break out of those knee-high boots and put a little spring into your step with the season’s newest shoes. Here are 10 of the best shoes to slip into right now … after all the snow is gone, of course!
The block heel is one of this year’s instant updates shaping up on the shoe scene. Chunky, stacked heels are lifesavers for those of us who need a little extra support. Spikey stilettos are not always the sexiest shoe on the block if your feet are hurting. So take a break from those teetering tight walks and check out a comforting pair of these new heels … especially the buckled loafers. (www.gucci.com)
It’s time to tie up some style this spring with all kinds of shoes that lace up around the ankle — the new erogenous zone. These shoes are meant to be shown off. The gladiator sandal is one of the best ways to lace up. But lace-up heels are strutting their stuff, too. Wear them with cropped pants, midi skirts or culottes. (www.the line.com)
One of the most comfortable casual shoes on the warm weather horizon. A platform shoe that is flat and fabulous. You’ll feel like you’re walking on a cloud. This athletic-inspired wedge sandal gets a chic twist for spring and summer, and the more colorful the better. (www.chanel.com) (www.aquatalia.com)
High heel Mules
Want to dress up your shoe wardrobe this spring? Then slip into one of these pointy-toe mules that have a touch of retro ’90s. Substitute a pair of these in pink satin for your high heel pumps. (www.selfridges.com)
These are not your ordinary flip-flops. The newest slides are shoes you can ease right into — from soft leather mules to silk jacquard slippers. (www.massimodutti.com)
So you’re a high heel girl and you feel like you’ve really got to pump it up for work. Well, this spring, the latest update to classic pumps is all about the pattern … stripes. Instant pizzazz to any suit. (www.giorgioarmani.com)
From Mary Janes that glitter with metallic beads to slides that are bedazzled and bejeweled to lace-ups dripping with tassels and pom poms, the dressiest shoes this spring will be the star of the style show. Even sneakers get the artistic touch with colorful graphic designs. (www.fendi.com).
In silver or gold, bronze or pewter, the metallic leathers (and heels) are taking the shoe show to cutting edge fashion that is right in step with the futuristic trend that is having a fashion moment right now. (www.marcjacobs.com)
Forget those high tops. Instead opt for classic sleek white sneakers. They’re turning up not only on city streets but paired with cocktail dresses for evening. (www.jcrew.com)
And if white sneaks aren’t quite dressy enough for you, then why not try white peep-toe booties with a hint of laced-up Victoriana? Boots aren’t just for winter anymore.
In fact, the open-toed ankle boots can ultimately give your whole outfit a major shot of the cool factor. (www.louisvuitton.com)
