Summer 2012's 10 Best Shoes
With summer fast approaching, it's time to amp up your accessories arsenal. And to help make that task easier, we've done all the footwork, so to speak, to find 10 the best shoes to slip into this season.
From lace-up Nicholas Kirkwood heels to gem-studded midi sandals to a pair of retro two-toned flatforms, you'll want them all. And don't worry—just because it's sandal season doesn't mean we haven't included some closed-toe options for the workweek, too. Really, we swear: these are the only shoes you'll need all summer long.
Those red and navy waves are so classically nautical. The cutaway vamp and crisscrossing straps are anything but.
Something about those three simple straps, the minimalist buckle and that mix of metallic and neutral tones makes this pair irresistible.
It's one-third slingback, one-third sandal and one-third classic flat. What a perfect combo.
Sure, they're the perfect pair of black kitten heels—but they also come with interchangeable golden chain and black leather ankle straps for mixing it up whenever you wish.
These are the second-generation version of those way popular kitty flats.
Ultra-modern and uber-reflective metallic gladiators won't be found at a better price.
If you had any doubts about whether these were suitable for the season, the style name should clear things up.
Nope, we're still not sick of flatforms. Not even a little bit.
The gems will catch the sunlight as you walk.
Not only is raffia the summeriest of all possible materials, but that color palette's pitch-perfect for warm weather.
