Sophia Webster Copacabana sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Neiman Marcus

You can always count on Sophia to bring you spicy shoes season after season. For Resort 2017 she drew inspiration from Brazil (where her shoes are produced) and the beautiful beaches of Rio.

We love this festive Copa sandal featuring multicolor leather cord straps, long wrap-around laces, knotted design at the front and cylinder cork covered heel. Half sizes are available and you can also find them in a 3″ style.

sophia-webster-bloomsbury-floral-sandals

Sophia Webster Bloomsbury sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Neiman Marcus & Sophia Webster

Bloomsbury is a striking sandal featuring digital floral printed silk satin from the Fall 2016 collection with matching embroidered trim, button snap straps, dark blue silk covered heel and side zip closure. Webster gave us a insider’s look at the making of this design and we’ve also spotted a custom gladiator style worn by celebrity Serayah McNeill.

Half sizes are available and we suggest ordering 1/2 size up as this brand tends to run small.

You can also find the Bloomsbury d’Orsay pump with the same flower power print available at Neiman Marcus and FarFetch:

Christian Louboutin Kaleikita spiked sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Bergdorf Goodman.

We always look forward to Christian Louboutin’s spring collections – especially in a market stocked with enough staple pumps. They’re pure eye candy, kooky and continuously fun.

These Kaleikita sandals are no exception. They come with all the bells and whistles featuring heavy embellishment like baubles, spikes and studs. The color combo also hits the mark and we love varying geometric cut straps. Louboutin also added a magenta textured leather covered heel and crackled bronze leather laces.

We equally love the black suede & leather version (pictured below) combining gold & silver hardware.

There are more talented designers and high quality crafted shoes than ever before. Retailers are stocking as much as the can; exclusive designs, premiere collections, pre-orders….and as much as I love how accessible fashion has become, it’s also seems quite cluttered.

Since we started this blog (6 years ago!) we continue to enjoy curating and searching through the masses to bring you the best, the standouts.

Which are you favorite?

Chiara-Ferragni-sandals-Spring-2016-Pow-Bang-mules

Chiara Ferragni Collection Pow Bang sandals | 4.5″/115mm | shop at Zappos and CFC

Top style blogger & influencer Chiara Ferragni launched her namesake shoe collection in 2010 with the signature glitter covered ‘Flirting’ flats slowly adding more & more heels to the collection every season. The Spring ’16 ‘Heroes to the Rescue’ shoes are whimsical as ever drawing inspiration from Wonder Woman-esque superheroes and exaggerated comic strip pop art sound effects.

This Pow Bang slip-on mule is one of our favorite styles from this collection featuring two-tone blue leather with a thin toe strap, red patent leather ‘Pow’ & ‘Bang’ appliqué and zig-zag trimmed front strap. It’s available in whole sizes only and alternatively stocked in a funky fun yellow silk satin. We’re also crazy about the blue ‘Stars’ sandals!

Tabitha-Simmons-Iris-sandals

Tabitha Simmons Iris sandals | 100mm/4″ | shop at Moda Operandi

We can’t get enough of Tabitha Simmons beautiful floral covered Spring/Summer 2016 collection. It’s feminine, it’s romantic, it’s wearable – it’s everything you want in a springtime shoe. There’s a flower for everyone including cherry blossoms, sweet perennials and a multi-color bouquet…but we’re particularly drawn to this Iris sandal.

They feature a natural beige raffia body, thin tapered stiletto heel, circle shaped straps embroidered throughout with bright red wildflowers, side ankle-tie close embellished with tassels and tan leather lining. Half sizes are available.

In addition to the blooming flowers, welcoming sunshine and green grass, strappy open-toe sandals are another sign that spring has sprung. Before you know it, it will be time to pack the boots away, treat yourself to a pedi (we suggest trying Dior’s new lilac polish) and slip into some strappy sandals – strappier the better.

This week superstar Shakira celebrated her 39th birthday! She’s kind of a boot fanatic and has made them work on several red carpets. Clearly she looks incredible…we’re just not a fan of these knee-high boots paired with her girly Alice + Olivia sleeveless dress.

Sophia Webster Flamingo Frill ankle-wrap sandals; available at FarFetch
Given the animal-themed movie, these playful shoes would have been a perfect choice.

Rene Caovilla Swarovski crystal Web slingback pumps; on sale at Neiman Marcus
This is another solid option; check out how they looked recently on actress Lyndie Greenwood.

You can’t go wrong with a strappy shoe and this one has enough ‘bite’ for Shakira.

Olgana La Sensuelle sandals; on sale at Matches
These two-tone sandals complement her dress and they’re still intriguing given the formal funky pleated white leather trim.

Bionda Castana signature Lana ankle-tie pumps; available at Bionda Castana
They’re a celebrity favorite and the ultimate femme fatale pump, featuring geometric black suede and mesh paneling.

Alexandre Birman Clarita jeweled velvet sandals; available at Saks Fifth Avenue
Aren’t they cute? They’re embellished with a crystal embroidered python toe strap.

Even more obvious than the painted cork trend, denim footwear is impossible to overlook this spring. From shoe maestro Blahnik to pacesetter , the industry brings us a playful spin on the classic jean twill.

From pumps to sandals, platforms to stilettos – each designer created a unique styles inspired by the blue Americana staple. Not only is denim is a reliable fabric perfect for everyday wear but it’s also an interestingly stylish shoe textile.

I particularly love Gianvito Rossi’s take, adding several denim designs to his spring collection which features a dark wash exaggerated with frayed patches. Both Fendi and Christian Louboutin combined a lighter shade with tropical floral printed leather. Jimmy Choo carries the most amount of denim styles this season adding a sleek contrasting black leather trim to several styles.
