Think for a moment and ask yourself this question: how many women do you know who own only one or two pairs of shoes? The answer is probably zero – and why? Because women throughout fashion history simply love shoes! Although it may be a mystery only understood by the fairer sex, the need to own a plethora of footwear to perfectly complement any outfit, activity or mood combined with the frequent desire to perform retail-therapy results in a powerful addiction that’s hard to break. And why curb it when there are so many fabulous shoes to choose from? Instead of trying to explain this fashion phenomenon, let’s instead leave the psychoanalysis to the experts & take a peek at a few of this season’s must-have styles and the hottest designers in women’s shoes.

Ballet Flat Shoes

Although women’s ballet flats have been popular for several seasons now, they’re not showing any signs of disappearing from our closets – or from our favorite designers. What these skimmers lack in height, they more than make up for in style – from snakeskin to metallic, simple to bejeweled, felt to leather, subdued-hued to bold and bright, ballerina flats are to your shoe collection as the little black dress is to your wardrobe. The ideal go-anywhere shoe, flats come in casual and formal styles, making them an easy choice when comfort prevails over vanity (and you have to be on your toes for more than 10 minutes)! Check out the extensive collection of Juicy Couture flats and Steve Madden Flat shoes available online at Jildor Shoes – you’re sure to find a pair that reflects your personal taste. For those of you waxing nostalgic for the 80’s trend of jelly shoes, check out the modern twist on this beach-inspire favorite: the Tory Burch Reva revamps this casual slide, turning a girlish trend into a grown-up classic.
