It’s All in the Heels

Shoes can make or great break an outfit. That’s the most basic piece of wisdom every girl must be able to obtain as early as when the concept of ego begins to settle inside her. While many cautionary tales have been spread about what kind of footwear can ruin an entire attire, here is a written memo on that particular style which is guaranteed to amplify the appeal of any ensemble: sparkling heels.

Nowadays, designers aren’t content with patent leather or glitter-smothered upper material. Instead, they go an extra mile and scout for beautiful gems to accessorize ladies’ designer shoes.

The following are just some of them:

Nine West

The primary strength of this Nine West piece lies on its heels not because it’s a 5-inch stiletto but because it is covered in glitter. The satin material of the criss-cross vamp and its slim ankle strap are relatively simple but nevertheless elegant.

Bottega Veneta

Made of exquisite canapa textile, these wool shoes by Bottega Veneta would most certainly hold a special spot in your personal shoe rack. Its shape follows the common pump but the heel is just astonishing as it is covered with Swarovski crystals.

Christian Louboutin

The Filter pump is a tad bit low key in embellishment with only the bottom quarter of the heel swathed in crystals. However, the minimal glistening pieces are just enough to accentuate the rich Burgundy color of these patent pumps. If you want outright glimmer, you may opt for the silver edition of the Louboutin Filter pump.

Giuseppe Zanotti

At one glance, this piece might be shrugged off as another suede black platform pump. However, a closer look at the Giuseppe Zanotti stiletto heels would show subtle adornment. The encrusted jewels make these shoes elegant enough to be worn at a gala or formal dinner.

Christian Dior

The leather criss-cross details on the vamp and the sides of these black Christian Dior platform pumps may suggest that it’s all there is to it. But once you turn your focus to what’s behind, then you’re in for a surprise. The heels are adorned with gold metal vines which are dotted with Swarovski crystals. Miu Miu

Straight from the Miu Miu Spring 2011 collection are plain peep-toe sandals which feature heels with gems lined up from smallest to biggest. The white edition is so uncomplicated and lovely that they are deemed perfect as bridal shoes.
