The Hottest Shoe Trends for Summer 2012

Shoe Trends are exciting this summer, and we expect that the trends will only get more exciting for fall. Imaginations have run wild for shoe wear, and designers are more than willing to oblige these shoe flights of fancy. And the willingness by celebrities and fashionistas alike to embrace the flirtiest of flirty, the most dynamic of dynamic designs, and even the most unusual of designs has elevated shoe fashion to a different level.

Instead of footwear as afterthought when it comes to completing any kind of attire, outfits are now built around a shoe. More women are taking the advice of Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker’s character in the now defunct series Sex and the City. Take a cue from her sense of style, and build your wardrobe around a particular shoe. It will actually turn out more practical. Plus, you can streamline your fashion collection according to a particular shoe look. That way you don’t end up with a hodge-podge of fashion items that look like several women with different fashion identities purchased them.

Celebrities are taking the lead and giving us a preview on dynamic shoe trends that will take you through summer. In fact, because of the celebrity penchant for higher than high heels, the woman on the street is tottering around in heels. To quote Manolo Blahnik, “You put high heels on and you change.” There is a certain sense of power that infuses a woman in heels. High heels instantly make a woman feel taller, graceful, and more commanding. And, once a woman gets a taste of this femme fatale power, anything lower than 6 inches will make her feel frumpy.

Yes, 6 inches is the new standard for high heels. Blahnik and Louboutin have been maintaining these heel heights for 3 years, and women, despite advice from podiatrists to the contrary, have to stuck to their guns and risked high-heel-related broken ankles for the long and lean look that only high heels can give. Let’s take a look at the high-heeled-beauties celebrities are stepping out in for summer.
