Top 5 Blue Shoes: Get the Blues for Spring

Unpredictable and uncommon, it’s all about the blue shoe for spring. Actually, it seems like the entire color palette for Miu Miu is blue this season. There isn’t a cooler color than blue – and now we’re seeing it in every shade from turquoise to sapphire, Carolina to Prussian, in textures spanning the gamut from super-sparkly to rich matte. I, for one, couldn’t be any happier – my favorite color is finally taking center stage!

1) Miu Miu Python-Effect Leather Pumps: Four inches of snake-like blue on a pointy silhouette – this shoe is as “now” as it gets. Wear these sleek pumps with a contrasting color for maximum impact.
On Net-a-Porter for $580.

2) Christian Louboutin J-Lissimo 100 Spiked Metallic Leather Sandals: Louboutin’s take on shimmery sea-blue aqua is at once hard and soft. Spikes evoke edge, but perfect placement and clear PVC lightens the load.
On Net-a-Porter for $795.

3) Jimmy Choo Crushed Metallic Sandal: Blue does not get more electric than this. These crackling strips of metallic burn with cold heat and exude high-octane, glam-rock fire.
At Bergdorf Goodman for $995.

4) Giuseppe Zanotti Two-Tone Swirl Sandal: Layers and layers of plush cobalt straps – yum! A splash of aqua adds dynamism to these soft suede sandals, which suggest modern-art inspiration.
At Bergdorf Goodman for $1,150.

5) Nicholas Kirkwood Satin Sandals: This blossom won’t fade into the foliage. A jolt of sapphire satin is Nicholas’ classical base for a voluptuous flower in full bloom.
