Every woman needs to have a go to perennial summer essential shoe collection. This is the time of year when our cute toes get to peek out at the sun after months of being forced into sensible winter boots. In the summer months you get to show off your sexy pedicures without the ubiquitous flip-flop anywhere in sight.
There are five must have types of shows for Summer 2012 –
1- CLASSIC – Light colored ballet flats: for everything from swingy short skirts to skinny leg jeans
2- ELEGANT – Nude colored pumps: can be worn with business suits as well as cocktail dresses
3- TRENDY – Fun colored wedges: shorts, maxi dresses, short dresses…the possibilities are limitless
4- SEXY – Black high heel boots with a spring twist: do I even need to give examples of what you can wear such boots with? Black high heel boots are the epitome of must have shoes.
5- WILD – Bright colored f**k-me stilettos: to be saved for a night out when you want to leave your mark on everyone you meet.
The ballet flat is basic shoe but does not need to be dowdy. This blush-tone style, in a pale pink hue, lends sweetness to any outfit while the metal cap-toe gives you an edge.
Nude colored pumps can be worn either day or night and add a bit of elegance to any type of outfit. Try this one with a comfortable cushioned platform can go directly from the office to a party.
A standout wedge shoe can make any outfit pop. Buckles around the ankles are preferable to sling backs and remember to get a platform wedges for extra height.
Black heeled boots are a staple in any closet, a must have and can dress up any plain skirt or dress. For a black boot with a “spring twist” get a boot with peek toes or a cutout at the foot that is not clunky.
Every woman deserves a hot looking stiletto, in a bright spring color, for those nights when she’d like to let her freak flag fly high. For added attention get an extra sexy pair with low-cut vamp for ample toe cleavage, an architectural heel and a peep toe.

Sandal manufacturer Teva has teamed up with Grey Ant clothing company to make one of this year’s most brilliant, yet bizarre fashion finds….a 4-inch stacked stiletto so comfortable it can be worn in the great outdoors. The website the shoes can be bought on boasts that the pumps are the “most comfortable, performance high heel(s) on the planet,” while showcasing pictures of women wearing the shoes while hiking, climbing and performing various outdoor activities. Yet, at the very bottom of the product description it reads: “Not recommended for actual hiking, gardening, mountain climbing, or Phish concerts.” So, I suppose the pictures are just a marketing ploy to garner interest, but the pumps may still be a viable option if you are looking for comfortable heels that apparently feel like sneakers. The stilettos, which are best paired with socks, are available in Natural and Black and cost $330.
