Jazz up your espadrille game for the spring 2012 season with one of these 28 styles!
What’s one of the hottest shoe trends for the spring 2012 season? Hands down it would have to be the totally easy-to-wear espadrille shoe.
This once casual style that we’re used to seeing as a slip-on flat or a relaxed wedge was a big trend spotted on the Spring/Summer 2012 runways. Except those shoes weren’t like your average espadrille – think stiletto heels with feather detailing and cork and/or rubber sandwiched in between layers to create a monster platform.
So when shopping for espadrilles this season, don’t be afraid to skip those muted, naturally-hued pairs and instead go for the cheekily decorated wedges that have one (or all) of the following elements: bright colors, metallic detailing or a graphic print. And to help you get a head-start on your shoeventure, we did a little bit digging to find some of the funkiest, eye-catching and really ballsy dare-to-wear ones (that you’d probably have to be a high-fashion model or a pop star to really pull it off).
Check out all of our picks in the slideshow above, and then try to guess which one of those really far-out-there styles we were just referring to…
