Sadly, Valentine’s Day is over. Now is just the right time for red-hot shoes, though. The trendy look is stilettos with ankle straps, but I’m all about making a bold statement with bright, searing boots. It’ll look like you’re walking through flames and without one moment of hesitation. After all, if you’re going to go for red, go for the kill or not at all! Because when you’re in the color, everyone will stop in their tracks to stare and you need to be ready to deliver.
