OK shoe lovers, so spring is officially here, and it's looking prettier every day, It's time to take a look at some of the newest options that will take you through the season in style. It's time to try some on.
Gucci has some of the best slides around. Pamper you feet with signature logos and prints. The classic buckle slides get a lift with a floral print, but maybe the best ones are the playful takes on logomania.
Here are some heels to take seriously. Artfully graphic mixed color from Off-White, seriously fun politically charged graffiti from Balenciaga, or some clear vinyl wrapped sandals. All chill and all signature.
Giuseppe Zanotti has a way with luxe sandals for evening. Trimmed in metal, soft silk petals of diamante leaves, they will have your feet in the spotlight. Wear them with something simple to make a statement,
Platforms will lift your spirits. And add a few inches to your height. Gold floral sandals from Dolce Gabbana are covered in delicate hand painted flowers. Sometimes you do get what you pay for. Maison Margiela updates the iconic Tabi with wooden soles and glitter, Miu Miu keeps it simple in red snakeskin. Which pair speaks to you?
Love bows on you toes? Jil Sander offers a raffish take on tied flats, while Prada adds a tiny bow to their classic satin kitten heels.
Day or night Miu Miu sparkles. Try some vinyl flats with glitter covered toes or some killer stoned heels. High or low? Or both? And you will never regret buying these Dolce leopard heels with the floral trim.
Don't say no to boots for spring. Sock boots are seasonless. Margiela does a patchwork pair mixing dots and dialogue. Balenciaga covers you in either ribbons of logos, or tiny Eiffel Towers that will have Paris at your feet.
Statement boots for Chloe and Louis Vuitton can make a look- wear them with jeans or a summery midi dress.
Not to be missed are the new crop of logoed sneakers. The Fendi pair have a cool closure on top of their logos. Love the Miu Miu slip ons that sparkle. But I have to say top of my wish list are the Virgiol Abloh/Louis Vuitton matte white men's sneakers with the chain detail.
Or go for color... Chanel is super chic in a bright blue. Amiri or LF can up your street cred. Amiri adds some California palms to their slip ons, and LF platform sneakers in a pale lavender can just make your day.
When you are done shopping, dining and partying, the best part is just coming home and putting on some cool slippers and chilling in your jammies.
