Spring 2012 Shopping: 100+ Stylish Espadrilles, Sandals, ‘It’ Shoes, and more!
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

The weather is finally warming up, and it’s time to refresh our closets and stock up on one of the season’s most important accessories: shoes. If you’re looking to update your summer sandal arsenal, but don’t know where to start, here are a few styles you should have on hand:


Espadrilles are the quintessential summer shoe. They’re light, comfortable, and their signature rope soles always give the wearer that effortless, summery feel. Look for flat espadrilles if you’re really into comfort, but if you want to take your look to the next level, you can find these shoes in platform and wedge versions.

Here are some options sure to satisfy any budget:

Flat Shoes and Sandals

We all love a sky-high platform, but when the dogs are a-barkin’, nothing is better than a pair of flats. Especially for those ladies who live in urban areas where there is endless walking to be done *coughNewYorkCitycough*, chic flat sandals and shoes round out any outfit, and best of all, you can walk in them fast enough to actually get somewhere.

Try these on for size:

Pumps and Platforms

Well, duh, which fashionista wouldn’t stock up on pumps and platforms this season? There are so many options, no matter what your sartorial proclivites. This season, neons, cap-toes, creamy pastels, and jubilant brights are on trend.

Check out these fab options:


Summer months mean weddings and outdoor events, which also means: leave the silettos at home. No one wants their heels to sink in the dirt, but some of us would like to rock some shoes with a little height. Enter the wedge. Shoes that give you the lift (and the gorgeous gams) of a heel, but without the discomfort or the uneven distribution of weight that make you sink in the dirt.

Get your wedge on with any of these styles:

‘It’ Shoes

We see our favorite celebs in them, so naturally, any fashionista would want to get their hands on the most popular designer summer shoes. Christian Louboutin is making a splash with his Asteroid, Bollywoody, and Unbout illusion styles, which have been seen on the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Lala Anthony, and Beyoncé. Giuseppe Zanotti‘s mouthwateringly sexy curved wedge heel have been sported by Angela Simmons and Nicki Minaj. The YSL triboto is always a classic, and Christina Milian has been sporting the jelly version of the platform sandals recently. Louis Vuitton introduced the pastel cap-toe heel on their Spring 2012 runway, but it is Stuart Weitzman‘s more affordable ankle strap version that have captured the hearts of celebrities like Solange Knowles and fashion editors alike. Sneaker wedges by Isabel Marant and Ash also have been making waves amongst the fashion set, with sales surpassing fall’s beloved smoking slippers at high-end department stores.

So, Bombers, what shoes are on you shopping list this season?
