Spring Footwear Delights

Take your pick from the spring footwear trends for 2012.

  • Silver and Gold – Versace models have paraded down runways in the design house’s platform shoes in lush gold. Dolce and Gabbana quickly followed suit with a number that featured gold braiding. Not to be outdone, Calvin Klein previews mod, strappy pumps in matte silver.

  • Mules – Mules have been closed-toed ever since the time of Marie Antoinette, but a variation of the mule, which is open-toed, saw light in the early 50’s. This season, both types of mules take front and center. Miu Miu, the high-fashion brand from Prada Fashion House, debuts closed-toed mules in satin and patent leather with lavish embellishments. Fendi, on the other hand, favors open-toed mules with nautical stripes to jazz up feet this spring.

  • Rivets, Chain Details and Lacing – For the former bad girl, rivets, chain details and extreme lacing add a biker aspect, and a hint of dominatrix, to any spring attire. Feminine toughness seems to be the message that Versace, Sonia Rykiel, Oscar de la Renta and Alexander McQueen are sending out for spring. Shoe aficionados will surely receive the message straightaway in the spare designs; space-age shapes, rivets, and lacing that give the strappy, feminine sandal an interesting counterpoint.

  • Pastel Colors – Pastel colors for footwear hardly look ‘blah’ this season. Footwear in interesting pastel hues, think candy colors a la ‘Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’, traipse down runways in overtly feminine designs. Blush and nude will be at the forefront of pastel, but rose, aqua, lemon drop yellow and sea foam green will add a refreshing attitude to spring footwear.

  • Bright Colors – Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s color of the year for 2012, and footwear is following suit. Pumps and mules awash with, or with hints of the reddish-orange hue are very visible on spring runways. ‘Viktor and Rolf’ and Roksanda Illincic have taken the lead in sandals and pumps that simply beg to be seen.

  • Animal Prints – Animal prints still have shoe enthusiasts all agog for spring. Classic pumps, platforms and wedges will use leopard, zebra as well as cheetah prints to give this season a seductive vibe. Footwear in animal print will emphasize slim ankles and the sexy arch of female feet as seen in the Prada collection this spring. Prada wedges with faux leopard heels add an alluring statement to black this season.

Amiclubwear bows to the Spring Vixen with footwear design that is guaranteed to make her salivate with desire. She doesn’t have to mull over choices in a shoe store packed with other hungry, young vixens. All she has to do is click, and spring footwear treasures will be laid out for her.
