LA Transit Shoe Show: Trends in Sandals in 2011

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

Inspiring is an understatement! At the LA Transit Shoe Show this week, I had the wonderful opportunity to see the shoes coming out this summer, so I am writing a series of blog posts on the shoe trends that I personally experienced at the show. I was even allowed to photograph the shoes! It was like shoe heaven! 🙂

(Of course, there were a few exceptions to the photographing of the shoes…nobody was allowed to take photos of a few styles by a few designers, but that’s ok because they will be public very soon and I will definitely let you see them at that time!)

My last post focused on flats, and today’s post is all about sandals. In the next few days I will focus on pumps, wedges, boots, and more! So here are the Summer 2011 trends in sandals:

These sandals by Dollhouse with the ruffle details looked exactly like the ruffled heels that have been so popular this year! They were super cute and come in all sorts of colors and a few prints too. I have to admit I loved them!

These jewel embellished flip flop sandals by Yellowbox are hot, super comfortable, and trending this summer! As you will see in some of the other photos, the jewels and metallic straps will be all over the place this summer.

Again, here we see jewel embellishments and metallic detailing on the straps on these Jessica Simpson sandals.

And again on these Jessica Simpson sandals.

These sandals by Onex are also showing metallic toned straps (as well as some colorful straps) along with crystal and jewel embelllishments.

And again on these sandals by Onex. 🙂

Believe it or not, these cuffed ankle flat sandals by Wanted, which have been all the craze this past year and will continue to be hot this summer, pictured above are kids’ shoes! Of course, they were shown in women’s sizes too, but I thought that they were so cute in these tiny sizes!

These are also kids’ sandals by Wanted, as you can see how small they are next to the slinky, but again the ankle cuffs on flat sandals (and on other flat shoes as well) are trending this year.

This was just a small sampling of the summer sandals that are coming to stores soon. I hope you enjoyed the photos, and I will be showing you some great heels tomorrow! 🙂
