You can never have too many shoes. For shoe-nistas, every season opens up opportunities to try new shoe styles. Spring trends like prints, pastels, color blocking and neons are showing up on footwear as well.
Whether you love wearing Louboutins, Jimmy Choos, Jeffrey Campbell, House Of Harlow, L.A.M.B., Aldo, or Irregular Choice, you can find various interpretations of the hottest spring shoe trends.
Comfort Chic with Wedged Sneakers and Flatforms
For Spring 2012, some of the most fashionable shoes you can have are actually comfortable, too. High top wedged sneakers take the traditional sneaker style to a stylish level.
Prada introduced the world to the flatform with the Prada Creeper. The flatform is a combination of flat and a platform. This shoe gives you a little height without worrying about balancing on heels.
The platform continues to be a trend that dominates the spring season. Platforms come with a heel that can be 4 inches or over 4 inches. The Lady Gaga no heel shoe is one of the oddest platform shoes out there, however it is surprisingly comfortable to walk in.
Let your inner lady out with a pair of feminine shoes. Details like lacing, bows, and braiding is making a comeback on sandals, wedges, and pumps. Look for rhinestones and sparkly details to match your outfits for night.
Focus on Toes
Metallic details toward the toe make shoes more durable and add a glamorous shine to the shoe. Pointed toe shoes such as flats and dressy footwear create a sexier shape.
See Through Shoes
Do not be afraid to showcase your freshly painted toes in transparent shoes. Shoes made of sheer vinyl add drama to your outfit.
Hardware like buckles, chains, and beads are dominating the menswear inspired shoes of Spring 2012.
