No more gloom, shoes of spring-summer 2011 welcome colors, frivolity, and life. The spring will begin with a string of high heels in all heights (the trend is “kitten heels”), and all colors, made of smooth leather, patent or nubuck leather. Boots are essential this summer, rather flat and zipped but the laced boots look so summery; in leather/canvas mix or beige nubuck, they look fresh & chic. Ballerinas are great basics for years; in one or two centimeters high, it can be very comfortable, practical and of course beautiful. A ballerina with opening on the front and accessorized by a jewel pattern could be perfect for a party; chic and comfortable. Loafers are also a comfortable footwear that is practical at the same time because it can be worn with jeans, short skirt, short pants, etc., and it also adds a classy yet contemporary look to clothes. In summer, we love to wear sandals; if the shapes haven’t basically changed over previous seasons, material and small details are innovative; This summer, we prefer cork soles or wood, trendy colors are gold, silver, as well as fluorescent. Derby shoes are so trendy this year; made of leather in many different colors and with low heels of 1cm and a stylish feminine-masculine look. Leather Stilettos with pointed front and high heels are still fashionable; they’re chic and elegant and very suitable for work or formal parties.
