Shoe Review ~ Super Brights

I haven’t checked the stats, but I’m pretty sure that this has been the gloomiest spring on record. Ever. Which has me craving  technicolor. A little bright spot of color on my feet will change my day. I know it. So, I thought I’d bring you along on my virtual shoe shopping ride so that you may also experience the juiciness that is wanting to adorn your feet.

Dolce Vita Lulu in Magenta Suede:  This flash of pink is sweet but not nauseating. Wear these slip-ons with anything from skirts to pants or shorts. Perfect spot of color to put a bounce in your step. Buy from Lori’s Shoes for $96.00.
Pour La Victoire Aria – Teal Patent: This slingback pump is sophisticated, elegant with a minimalist dose of quirkiness. The rich hue is magnetizing. Perfect combo. Would wear this to a business meeting or on date night. Buy at Lori’s Shoes for $230.
Topshop Sizzle Pink Suede Colour Block Platform Peep Toe Sandals: The description calls these “pink”. I’m not seeing it, but I’m seeing that these shoes scream SPRINGTIME. Yes, please. Buy at Topshop for $136.00.
Melissa Amazonas: Love the Melissa MELFLEX trademarked plastics from which their shoes are made. Hypoallergenic and recyclable too! No worries about ruining your shoes in the rain with these: Splash around all the puddles you want with this cut-out design as the shoes are resistant to water.  Buy at KarmaLoop on sale for $77.95 

 

Island Yellow Espadrilles: What a well named shoe. Just looking at this, I feel transported to some beachy, dreamy location. I’ve already assigned these as my island party shoes, umbrella drink in hand and glowing from the nearby light of the tiki torches. Getaway fantasy for under $50. Buy at Heels.com for $49.99.
BodenUSA Twist Slides: Love the color, rendered more vibrant by the patent leather. Wear to market, wear to lunch, wear to beach… Buy at Boden for $88.00.
United Nude Loop Sandal: I love this brand which is always looking to deconstruct and reinvent the silhouette of the shoe. In this case, a floating footbed slips through a sexy loop, functioning as both heel and upper. WANT. Buy at United Nude for $275.
Jeffrey Campbell Garret Orange Combo Bowie Peep Toe Pumps: Craving a little extra attention? Put on a pair of these and consider the problem solved. A classic shape rendered ooh-la-la with its bright colors and just-right bow. Buy at LuLu’s for $145.
Neuaura T-Strap Nashira Sandal: A guilt-free sexy and colorful sandal. Neuaura creates fun, exciting and quality footwear to animal-friendly consumers. Always knew that vegetarians were sexy. Buy at NeuAura for $104.
Crocs Sexi Flips: These ain’t your nurse’s Crocs no more. Hot Italian design. Who knew Crocs could get sexy? And comfy too, y’know, them being Crocs and all… Buy at Crocs $29.99.
Michael Antonio Globe Sandal: Also available in bright pink, yellow (ok, in white and beige too, but we’re talking COLOR here!). Platform + cork + bright + $40 = perfect gilt-free trend indulgence. Buy at Zappos for $40.
KORS Michael Kors Odette Flats: Fun little “driving” shoe, understated but for the wonderful pop of patent yellow. Buy at Zappos for $150.
Restricted Nectarine: Completely adorable. Blue patent with a glossy yellow bow. How can you resist? Wear with anything for pretty much any occasion. Buy at Lori’s Shoes $56.
Orange Clogs: Very interesting to observe that clunky can be sexy. Carry off the clog trend with these without feeling like about to go milk the cows. Buy at Zappos, on sale $89.25.
Zara Wedge Instep: Gladiators gone pink. Wear with your new maxi dress – among other things… Buy in store at Zara for $79.90.
DV by Dolce Vita Dewey – Magenta Suede: For those who can only take color in tiny doses, here’s a good way to get started. Contemporary T-strap thong sandal in playful magenta and teal colors. Personally, I’d adorn with bright orange toenails. Buy from Lori’s Shoes for $54.00.
United Nude Elastic Tangle: Get all your colors covered in a single shoe. You know it will go with e-ve-ry-thing.  Buy at United Nude for $190. Also available in a variety of different heights and colors. Love.
Prada Multi-Striped Elastic Strap Sandals: So, here’s the luxury version of the above. Bright elastic bands in bright colors crisscross the front and wrap the ankle of this sandal. I’d wear Prada all the time if I could. Sigh. Buy at Saks Fifth Avenue for $595 (Made in Italy. Ahem).
