Shoes are exciting this season, and you will love the amazing trends that will surely captivate your senses. Take these very simple cues and you will love the amazing glamor of the 2011 shoe trends. All are inspiring and certainly all women from all over the world would want to take hints from these amazing trends.
Opulence and sex
For 2011, shoes go from kitten heels to sky high stilettos in impeccable treatments, from chunky crystals to minuscule embroidery. The designs exude sensational appeal and dynamism that appeal on many of the designs that are seen this summer season. There is a dangerous woman on heels of Lanvin in a sleek leather pump with rounded tip, an angular heel and ankles bound by leather and chain. The Dior woman is vampy and ready for the kill in immaculate ultra-high platforms and wedges in red satin or in black leather with mesh insets.
A creature of sorts
Alexander McQueen’s eponymous Armadillo shoes for spring exude the needed drama and appeal. The shows were worn by Lady Gaga for her Bad Romance MTV and were worked by Daphne Guinness for one of her fantastical outings. Of course, non-literal numbers come in various kinds and finishes of skins from snake to leather, to pony hair.
Romance at the prairie
There is a romance with the clogs at Chanel. Though a bit chunky, when paired with whispers of chiffon and layers of it, just like in Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, the clogs exude that prairie girls prancing along the fields. Bottega Veneta’s raffia wedge is a very desirable piece that captures classic appeal but with a modern edge. This one is great show to have for summer. In a better-heeled version, the Nina Ricci leather bootie with lace detailing captures a drama of pretty and sensuality all at once. It really stirs the mind to the drama of black and white movies where a woman desires to leave for the city.
Sporty and sPRINTy
In a more urban direction, we got Alexander Wang and his zippered bootie in army fatigue colors. He evoked the sportiness and discipline into sexy desirable looks. In a more futuristic approach, Balenciaga’s Nicholas Ghesquire created another masterpiece with Pierre Hardy by creating a marbled shoe with plastic elements and a strong silhouette. Balmain took on studs and utilitarian appeal in a lace up boots in military green color, filled with studs. Givenchy took the digital prints this season and created an ultra-high bandage wedge platform with optical prints.
