Shoe Trends For 2012

As a designer shoe buff I am very impressed with this season’s hot shoe trends. Many times I’ll plan my outfit to draw specific attention to the shoes I’m wearing and with this spring’s shoe trend I will continue to do so.

Embellishments always add more pizazz to shoes, but this season instead of sequins and crystals, designer footwear is taking on a more arts and crafts feel, and I’m unexpectedly delighted (I like to keep my crafts in projects). These crafty wooden beads on these sandals have a slightly tribal feel, but with Mediterranean color tones they are more resort chic than African safari. Black leather platform sandals with a turquoise patent leather covered heel and multi wood-beaded strap at the ankle, these designer shoes will drape your foot with vacation time ease. They have a T-strap at the front and double straps around the ankle with gold-toned buckles. They have a 4.75 inch heel with a 1.25 inch platform.
