This Season's "Must Have" Shoes -- Tickle Your Feet!

Aug 18, 2007
As women, we are genetically pre-dispositioned to want, need, and lust after shoes. Even if our closet is overflowing with shoes that we often don't wear, we'll buy more. Let's face it, if they're on sale, we have to buy them even if we don't need them, if only because they're on sale. If we truly love them and they're way out of our price range, we'll still buy them, even if it means sacrificing our next two paychecks and eating ramen for the rest of the month. Either way, we know that what we put on our feet can make or break our outfit. So, is there a solution to the maddening love affair? A way to have shoes that are both affordable and adorable? This seasons hottest shoes are not breaking the bank, and thankfully, designers have wisened up so they're not killing our arches either. The heel on sandals has come down, and some are now even sporting a paper-thin, platform heel in the back.

Warm weather brings flip-flops, of course. These are nice, flat, and thanks to high demand by both ladies and gents alike, we can get them on the cheap and easy, or, we can pay a bit more for something sparkly and fly. Designers are also including bejeweled lines in stores, channeling some of the South American influence that we've seen in clothing and handbags. Trends are pointing towards the flip-flop on a small, petit heel, with an ankle strap as well; if you want even more flair, choose a pair that has a rhinestone encrusted buckle. Remember to always keep your pedi up to date as your feet are the focus of attention when wearing an open toed shoe.

Ballet flats are a sweet and innocent looking summer steal, even when you sport them in leopard print. These shoes can go from the boardroom to the boardwalk and you'll look great, plus your feet will be thanking you because they're a shoe of such simple construction. Dressed up or down, these shoes are so versatile you truly can wear them anywhere! Not only that, but as graceful and demure as dancers are, it can make you feel very much like the princess when you slip your feet in to them.

Slingback flats are a low-key style that bridge the precarious gap between total utility and ultimate femininity. As with other great summer shoes, slingbacks can be worn with anything from a corporate pantsuit to bermuda style shorts with a blousy tank or peasant blouse. Last summer, espadrille sandals were wildly popular, as they continue to be this year also. Pair the feminine and sexy style of the this shoe with a more updated bamboo or cork wedge heel and you've got a look with staying power. Because this heel provides a solid construction, your foot is well supported and you should be able to spend the day in a pair of these.You'll find almost all of these styles manufactured in a variety of materials, from canvas and linen to organic cotton and vegan; no matter what you crave, there is a color and style to match any taste.

So, there you have it girls! Go get some great shoes that won't break your bankroll. Summer is a season to be fun and carefree - the year, show your fun and spunky side by letting your feet do the walking AND the talking!
