While you may be tempted to stick to your usual Sperry Top-Siders or Havaiana flip-flops, the Spring 2012 runways introduced a slew of adorable new shoe trends for this season. And what better time to try them than right now? We’ve found some fun shoe options from downtown stores that will keep you on trend with this season and fit perfectly with your hectic student life.
Here are the top five shoe trends that every VALLEY girl needs to try this spring:
Be ladylike in rosy pink, rock a simple nude color or even try mint green. These fresh colors are sure to keep your outfit looking crisp and clean!
2. Sky-high Wedges
Wedges are a girl’s best friend. Not only are they super sexy, but they’re ultra comfortable too (which makes them perfect for strolling the streets of State College)! Check out The Shoebox on College Avenue for a selection of adorable wedges for any budget.
They’re glamorous, yet playful. You can dress them up or down. Both Metro and Barefoot have fantastic, sparkly options of heels and flats that can add flavor to any outfit.
4. Bold Patterns
Although neutrals are sweet and demur, you can fully harness the spirit of spring by sporting a bright, colorful pattern on your feet.
Intricate braiding, rocker-chic studs and artsy lacing were seen on plenty of runways this season. When selecting your spring footwear, remember that it’s all in the details.
So put your foot down, ladies, and say no to boring winter colors and UGG boots. Spring is the time to strut your stuff with these five fantastic shoe trends.
