6 Spring Shoe Trends and a Chance to Win Some!

   By SheSpeaksTeam  Feb 28, 2012

With the spring season quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how to accomodate those spring fashion trends in your wardrobe. To kick off this fashion season, we're sharing tips on a staple in every woman’s look, shoes! Whether you shop for comfort, style, color, price, or everything in between, these 6 shoe trends are sure to get your springtime look off to a great start.  And this week if you review your fashion favorites we'll enter you for a chance to buy the trends you like!

  • Animal Prints:animal printAnimal prints have recently returned to fashion favor. Cheetah, leopard, tiger, and zebra prints are appearing on store shelves at an explosive rate. These combinations of patterns and colors are highlighted and complemented with the emerging fashion trend of fatigues and military jackets.
  •  The Slipper Flat: A growing trend that’s quickly replacing the ballet flat trend, the slipper flat is a perfect combination between comfy and chic. This shoe can come in a classic slipper look, loafers or dress flats. Perfect for weekends, casual days, and times you need to walk a lot. You’ll be glad you bought a pair!
  • Neon Colors/Pastels: The trend of pops of color (POC) seems to be a throwback to classic 80’s style. Whatever your favorite color may be, this spring there's the perfect shoe color for you. You’ll be guaranteed to turn some heads with a pair of neon yellow heals.
  • Braided Sandals: It’s been a while since this trend has been featured in designer collections, but it’s back and will be flying off store shelves come the spring. Bright colors blended with unique braid designs will make them a must have for your warm weather wear.
  • Transparent Shoes:transparent shoe Also known as “shooties”, a combination of the words sheer and bootie, this is perhaps the most interesting or “out there” trend you’ll see this spring. For a number of seasons designers have been popping these into their collections but until now they’ve never taken off. Oscar De La Renta featured these in the 2012 spring runway show and they even made an appearance in Paris Fashion Week.
  • Buckles: Buckles were a trend that appeared during last year’s spring/summer collection and they’ll be making a return appearance for this season. So go back and dig around in your closet for these forgotten gems. They're back!

I love sandles mostly, but for heels I like to keep it 2 inch heels, that is what my feet can handle not know 4 or 5 inch heels.

I love the new (80s-90s) repeat of Color , Bold Beautiful Gem Toned heels are beautiful. I think that a great shoe esp an heel/pump with a bold pop of color can take a boring or just plain outfit to another level. Think Hot Pinks, Purples Bold Blues, Greens & vivd Orange can really start a conversation , give you confidence & just make you have a great day!

Clicked the link and I'm having the same problem as the rest of the ladies. Is this going to be fixed? Or should we just leave our fav shoe review here?

You're supposed to write a review for your favorite pair of shoes not really comment on the ones above. Look where it is underlined and it explains it.

I always seem to gravitate toward Candies shoes when ever I'm at kohls. I have several pairs of their high heels. From pumps tp sling backs with an open toe. I really like the styles.
