Top 5 Shoe Trends for Spring 2012



Although the weather has been up and down lately, spring is truly here - and with it, the hottest new shoes trends have arrived in stores.

Cap-Toe Ballet Flats

Cap-toe flats that incorporate bright colours, metallics, and cut-outs are especially hot this spring. These two pairs from Overland are an example of more subtle cap-toe styles, but can be incorporated into any wardrobe - making them super wearable this spring.

Colourful Boat Shoes

Discover your inner prepster this spring by picking up a pair of brightly-hued boat shoes. These classic shoes have been given a makeover with a fresh dose of color, giving them a fun and modern vibe. Whether you like pastel, neon or primary shades, there’s bound to be a boat shoe out there in your favorite hue. And although ʻDolce Vitaʼ is more of an oxford shoe, itʼs so fun and colourful that it had to be included in this list!

Abstract Prints

By adding footwear in a fun print to your outfit, you really can make your shoes the ultimate statement piece. The denim flower print on the ʻBygonesʼ style offers a comfy but stylish wedge heel, as does the retro-inspired ʻKaosʼ.

Two-Strap Sandals

Sandals are the quintessential go-to shoe for warm weather, but be on the lookout this season for the trendy two-strap versions - in heeled, wedged, and flat styles. As the name suggests, these sandals consist of two straps — one on the ankle and one around the toes — for a chic and minimalist look. Overland’s ʻYonaʼ is available in black, red, and yellow, and is a perfect shoe to transition you from spring into summer, and beyond. ʻMenziesʼ also comes in orange, and would make a great work shoe.

These quirky shoes were quite the controversial trend last year and they’re back again for spring. The pairs below from Andrea Biani are totally comfy, but have a stylish, eyecatching edge. The ‘Adlong’ Oxford flatform comes in a nude and black leather - a multi coloured platform that’s absolutely adorable.
