Patriotic Designer Shoes Set the Stage for Summer

With the Olympics just around the corner, designer shoes for summer are showing a trend toward the patriotic. The latest deck shoes, created by one of Britain's longest-standing manufacturers of boat shoe designs, come in three-toned leather, red white and blue of the British flag, and a Union Jack pattern on the rubber sole, so the wearers can display their colours whenever they put their feet up to enjoy a game. The Olympic deck shoe design itself is a limited edition, so a patriot might want to act quickly to make sure being set for the big collaboration of athletic activities by athletes around the world.

Patriotic Designer Shoes Set the Stage for SummerAlongside the patriotic offerings, another upcoming footwear trend for the 2012 summer season is the print-fabric shoe. A startling new and unusual enthusiasm for prints in every facet of fashion is extending to some very new takes on shoe design. Imagine an ankle boot with stiletto heels, crafted from fabrics evoking tapestries, suedes and metallic-embroidered velvet paisleys, fabric ribbon laces exploding into luxurious satin bows at the ankle. Feet in the upcoming season will be a veritable explosion of colors and patterns. Floral prints are popping with colour, and enhanced with buckles, straps, and bows in the line-up of hottest designer shoes making their appearance on runways and in the best fashion magazines. Embellishments range from dried flowers and pine cone arrangements across the strap of cork wedge shoes to flame-shaped leather fins protruding from the back of a metallic stiletto heel like a hot wheels racer.

Taking design a step beyond the prints of fabrics, designers are adding three-dimensional flourishes of vinyl flowers attached to the heels of shoes, iridescent snake skin loops of fabric extending from toe straps, and studded and bejeweled biker bling climbing the legs of the wearer. Look for animal prints in colours not found in nature, like an electric blue leopard print stiletto, geometric shapes of leather encasing an ankle above peep-toe designs, and lace-up options climbing the calves.

Royal style icons are embracing the fashions, putting a best foot forward with the stylish new colour patterns about to hit the mainstream, and no doubt the Olympics and surrounding events will spur some additional offerings in the patriotic flavor of summer footwear designer shoes. When the warm-weather fashionista puts her best foot forward this year, it is bound to be ablaze with colour and embellishment and all the flair that patterned fabrics can provide.
