What do you think are the hottest shoe trends of 2013?

I think the ’70s will have a large influence on 2013 shoe collections. Things like chunky block heels, unexpected accent colors, and lots of ankle straps are in store. Also, metallics. J. Mendel has an amazing pair of gold metallic pointed sandals I would die to wear. They have a vintage vibe to them with pale blue ankle straps, but they also have modern color blocking with the metallic gold and white leather. So, they would be incredibly versatile.

Who are your favorite shoe designers right now?

I have a lot of favorite shoe designers; it’s hard to narrow them down! I’m obsessed with J. Mendel, Dolce Vita, Seychelles, Michael Kors, and House of Harlow 1960, to name just a few. I like designers who release shoes with vintage influence and details that aren’t too trendy.

Which shoe pair is highest on your current wish list?

The Dufoura pair from Christian Louboutin is one I can’t stop looking at. It screams “look at me!” and the combo of bright colors is such a change from my latest shoe purchases (black suede, black leather, and more black leather).

What do you think are the hottest shoe trends of 2013?                                               

Wedges are going to be really hot this year, whether they are obvious or hidden. It’s always great to get a few extra inches while still feeling chic and comfortable!

Who are your favorite shoe designers right now?

Isabel Marant, no doubt. Although she’s not specialized in designing shoes, her shoe collection is always at the point every season! She’s truly a trend setter!

Which shoe pair is highest on your current wish list?

A pair of Givenchy wedge ankle boots! I’m dying to get them.

What do you think are the hottest shoe trends of 2013?

In 2013, I’ll be looking out for minimalistic shoes. Also, I think that flatforms are going to continue to be popular.

Who are your favorite shoe designers right now?

Currently, I’m in love with the shoe brand Deandri. I love the cohesiveness and the clean shapes of its shoes.

Which style is highest on your current wish list?

I would love to own a pair of Deandri Helga platform boots with clear sides. They’re absolutely amazing.
