Models Direct: Ladies Spring 2011 Shoe Trend Forecast

From: Models Direct
Published: Sun Nov 07 2010

When it comes to shoe trends Models Direct like to stay informed and we’re already looking past this season’s buckled and laced boots to see how things will develop for the spring. You can never think too far ahead regarding foot fashion so read on and see how you can put your best foot forward in style during spring 2011.

Kitten heels

Kitten heels are not the most flattering of styles but they are set to offer our poor feet a rest from the gorgeous yet impractical heels that we have become accustomed to over the last few months. It’s true that higher heels lengthen the leg and can contribute to a slimmer silhouette but there are ways to wear kitten heels and retain some of the glamour provided by their higher cousins. Models Direct suggest going for a minimalist style this spring, always with a pointed toe and paired with clothing that is inspired by the 50s and 60s. If you follow these guidelines you will find that the kitten heel can be a sophisticated and more comfortable alternative to the much loved high heel.


Another rather dubious trend this spring comes in the form of heeled clogs. Clogs may not be a first choice for comfort but don’t dismiss this trend, it is on it’s way, like it or not! If you like your heels and are looking for something fresh to replace your trusty high pumps then some of the new style quirky clogs may well be for you. If you are reluctant to embrace the clog trend then there will be shoes on the market that give a style nod to clogs, such as studs. These can keep you looking current without the fear of inspiring images of tulips and windmills wherever you go.

Flat sandals

Flat sandals will of course return this spring and summer and Models Direct can’t wait to get our hands on some of the new styles. Pretty sandals can really finish an outfit and provide some femininity and sparkle, we love indulging this side of our fashion personas! There will also be a range of more minimal, neutral sandals to choose from next year, including ankle cuffed versions which provide a cool alternative to recently favoured gladiator styles. The best piece of basic sandal advice that Models Direct have for you is to match simple designs with fussier clothing and keep those with details, such as embellishment, for your plainer maxi dresses, shorts and jeans.


We are already starting to see some of the cheerful multi-coloured shoe styles spill from catwalk to high street this season and this is set to continue in 2011. Models Direct love these bright and funky designs and the girls in the office have been investing in some multi-coloured footwear to see us through an optimistic spring and summer. Our favourite thing about multi-colour shoes is how much fun you can have matching a different colour with an item of clothing in your outfit each day!
