MSGM embellished leather ankle-strap sandal | 110mm/4.3″ heel | shop at ShoeScribe for $905

The creativity was unleashed in footwear this season for MSGM and this embellished sandal is added to the list of splashy mixed media designs from their latest Hawaiian-inspired Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

This eye catching ankle-strap sandal features pale apricot leather, nude snake-embossed leather stiletto heel, raffia & feather fringe, crystal & bead embroidered grosgrain strap, leather & PVC tassels and my favorite detail – the leopard-print sole! This style is only available in whole sizes.



Christian Louboutin Neronna sandal | 115mm/4.5″ heel and 15mm/.6″ platform | shop at Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue $1,045

I will gladly unleash my inner warrior and slip right into these sandals from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Louboutin designs a must-have strappy cage shoe every season (last fall it was about the Keny sandal) and these sandals are a striking addition to any collection.

Neronna features natural calfskin smooth leather, arrow shaped tapered t-strap with the straps looped through, stacked block heel, tonal leather insole, signature red sole and small leather tab which extends near the toe. Half sizes are available.



Gianmarco Lorenzi strappy sandal | 105mm/4.1″ heel | shop at FarFetch for $584

We’ve already expressed our love for Lorenzi’s dynamic Spring/Summer 2014 collection (including these pink pumps and perforated winged sandals) but the goodies keep on coming! These statement sandals are a wonderfully mad scientific experiment for your feet modeling after a multicolor honeycomb mosaic pattern.

They feature a thin t-strap cage design, glossy patent leather, hexagonal panels in cobalt, aqua, turquoise and green, black leather insole, adjustable ankle-strap, gold-tone buckle and contrasting white leather sole/heel tip. Half sizes are available.



Christian Louboutin Aqua Ronda slingback sandal| 120mm/4.7″ heel | shop in white at Matches for $902, aquamarine or black at Neiman Marcus for $865 and several other styles at Christian Louboutin

Christian-Louboutin-Aqua-RondaAqua Ronda is definitely one of our favorite styles from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. We’ve previously written on our love for the aquamarine model but feel this just-released white style also deserves the spotlight.

They feature a slip-on slingback design, transparent PVC panels, glosssy white patent leather, tube-like padded leather straps (one has elastic sides), thin 10mm platform and nude leather insole. Half sizes are available.



Aquazzura Sahara sandal | 105mm/ 4.1″ heel | shop at Neiman Marcus for $625 and MyTheresa for $741

We love this gorgeous, glamorous Spring/Summer 2014 collection filled with a spectrum of colors and luxe textures. Sahara is the perfect sassy summer sandal featuring a soft yellow suede front panel, braided tan leather cord side straps, long leather ankle-tie, tonal leather insole and yellow suede tassel charms.

Half sizes are available and you can also find them in nude or black suede at Shopbop.

Jerome C. Rousseau Karma Buttons slingback | 120mm/4.9″ heel | shop at ShoeScribe for $960

J’adore these adorable pumps from Jerome C. Rousseau’s latest Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Karma Buttons feature candy pink patent leather, signature thorn-shaped stiletto heel, elastic paneled slingback strap, lipstick red & snow white button studs and nude leather lining. Check out how they look on the foot, I especially love the sleek shape of the pointed-toe.

Half sizes are available and you can also find the Karma slingback (minus the buttons) in jade python at Avenue 32 or nude patent leather at Bloomingdale’s.



Manolo Blahnik Bombita sandal | 105mm/4.1″ heel | shop in seafoam green and rose gold at Barneys for $950

These beautiful strappy sandals are from the Spring 2014 collection stocked in two summery colors: seafoam green and rose gold. Bombita features watersnake leather, three thin cord straps, adjustable ankle-strap, classic thin stiletto heel and tonal leather insole.

I never forget a good shoe and immediately remembered one of Manolo’s biggest celebrity fans, Rihanna, debuting this signature style last year in iridescent snakeskin. Half sizes are available.



Sophia Webster Electra lace-up sandal booties | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at FarFetch for $895 or Browns Fashion for $776.87 (excluding VAT), $933 (including VAT)

Float like a butterfly…in these stunning Electra sandal booties by Sophia Webster from the new “Insect Slumber Party” themed Spring/Summer 2014 collection. They feature glossy black patent leather, butterfly wing inspired laser cut panels, black suede trim & toe, lace-up front section with tonal leather laces and nude leather lining.

Half sizes are available and here’s a peek at how they look on the foot. I find Webster’s sandals run a tad small, so you may want to take one half size larger than normal.



Paul Andrew Avellana strappy sandals | 115mm/4.5″ heel | shop at Shopbop for $795

After launching his luxury women’s shoe line last spring and I was happy to see Paul Andrew’s delightfully charming designs hit several of my favorite stockists (including Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and ShoeScribe). He has over fifteen years of experience with iconic fashion houses such as Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Alexander McQueen and Narciso Rodriguez.

Paul Andrew was also named the 2013 ‘Launch of the Year’ by Fairchild Publications and in a recent interview with Footwear News, Donna Karan spoke of him saying, “He focuses on every detail, so it’s all about the toe, the heel, the fabric. He has a great vision and brings his own creative perspective to every design.”

These striking Avellana sandals are one of my favorite designs from the latest Spring 2014 collection. They feature fuchsia pink grosgrain silk layered with metallic gold leather, asymmetric cross straps, thin 0.5″ platform and circle leather covered buckle. Half sizes are available.
