Step Into Summer With Our Favorite Shoe-Stunners

By Eden Herbstman

May 2012

Time’s up, ladies! Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, which means summer is officially in season. Sometimes the best outfits are born from fabulous heel-spirations, so this summer work around a statement shoe to create unique looks. Pastels were heavily worked into all the spring collections, so carry that feminine feel into summer with this Versus pump. The contrasting textures of patent leather and mesh  keep this look young with a touch of sophistication. Now you can literally walk amongst the flowers wherever you go in this super playful suede lace-up booty by Manolo Blahnik. If you’ve grown tired of bold floral prints, too bad, because this trend is still in bloom; the floral cut-outs throughout make these shoes what they are. And with a name like “Kahikalow,” how can this shoe be anything short of pure shoe-genius? Missoni does “cool blue” right, incorporating their signature crochet knit pattern into this perfect summer sandal. Shades of blues, greens, and browns make this awesome color combo a summer smash. Stella McCartney creates two-tone pattern success with this sleek patent leather pump. Nude and fluorescent orange pop against each other, and snakeskin heels add a daring touch. Only Christian Louboutin could make scuba sexy. Perfect for any beach getaway, the bright yellow, neoprene, peep toe ankle booty, with patent leather heel and white trim finish, practically guarantees fun in the sun. Be advised to keep these puppies on dry land.
