Top 10 Women's Shoes for Spring
What are the top trends in women's shoes this season? Think heels that are very, very high. Think wedges that tower. And think pointy heels that are super-aggressive. But the look isn't all tough, with feminine touches like bows, ribbons and polka dots softening the look for spring.
Look for plenty of fierce-looking, "Gladiator"-inspired footwear this spring, including Alexander McQueen's leather strappy sandal. Price: $695.
Pumps with curved toes are still in season, but the toes aren't quite as round as last year. Plus, designers are adding small details such as small buckles, seen here on a violet and white pump from Louis Vuitton. Price: $670.
Heels may dominate, but flats also continue to be in season this spring, appearing in metallic colors like gold and silver. These flats from Jimmy Choo are some of the nicest around. Price: $295.
Look for sandals to have more ornate details this season; Calypso adds snakeskin as well as mother of pearl accents to its version. Price: $205.
Wedges go high this spring and take on elements of the espadrille, seen here in Christian Louboutin's ribbon-clad take on the wedge. Price: $375.
Spiky and strong, the blue leather Manolo Blanhik high-heel isn't for the shy. It comes with an ankle strap, another popular feature this spring. Price: $565.
Pink is everywhere this spring, including on sneakers. This pair by Adidas manages to be feminine and fun without being too sickly-sweet. Price: $50.
Prada combines the open toe (another big trend this season) with a Victorian-influenced short boot. Price: $780.
Expect lots of black and white this spring and summer, while Miu Miu's slide also includes a sweet bow, making it feel a bit Daisy Duke. Price: $265.
Strong colors like blue, red and green dominate this spring. Here, Yves Saint Laurent offers up a metallic green pump with a chunky heel. Price: $495.
