For All New Statement Shoes

Shoes are making a big statement this Spring Season. They are bright and bold……colorful and collectible. They have a “shoe as art” look about them. Ballet flats are no longer de rigeur (darn it) but if you like a flat…..go for an oxford this year. Lots of cut outs…peep toes….and gladiator sandals. You will see fringe from head to toe. Metallics are huge and so are sculptural heels. If you are looking to look taller….this season is for you! Heels have gone sky high……and so have the prices! The very biggest trend of all is……..COLOR! Take a peep (toe) at what is new in Statement Shoes for Spring 2009. Below is my edited picks of what is best at all price points. Come back often as I will be adding shoes daily.
