SWEET 16

Looking over the hundreds of shoes shown for Spring summer 2012 made our head spin...It is a shoe year.  How many times can YSL reinvent the heeled loafer? Well, they did it again and it has to be said it is one of our favorites. Prada has to have the most guts in the group their Cadillac inspired heel, flame fenders and all. Jill Stuart made a nice showing with metallic stacked heels with a hint of modern glitz. McQueen dripped with ghostly flowers, while Oscar De La Renta went transparently chic. Keep an eye out for Charlotte Olympia with her sky high peep toes, and Cole Haan's Lemon soles. Edmundo Castillo slipped in with a wedge that lingers with green and black raffia stripes. To round it out Alexander Wang  shows mint aqua dreams, DVF nailed it with a modern roped wedge, Louis Vuitton stands supreme with a hint of "pain". While Bottega Veneta and Camilla Skovgaard make black and white standout from the colorful company. Have we missed one? Vote on your favorite.
