THERE’S no such thing as a sub­dued num­ber this Spring be­cause you can­not pos­si­bly step out of the house in a shoe that isn’t de­signed to be a con­ver­sa­tion piece.

Are we do­ing colours? The brighter the bet­ter. In con­trast or solids, as bold as pos­si­ble is the way to go.

And be­ing spring, we’ve got to have flow­ers. And they must be ap­plique as per Fendi with its colour­ful se­lec­tion on solid black, or Lan­vin that matches its flow­ers to its shoe colour.

There’s never a dull mo­ment with all the de­tail­ing go­ing on. Dries Van Noten gives blue vel­vet a touch of glam­our with em­bel­lish­ment while Gucci throws ev­ery­thing in the mix with studs and stones.

How about feath­ers? Moschino chan­nels show­girl vibes with the marabou ef­fect on the heels. But if fluff just isn’t you, go with Gucci and have gold bul­let spikes run­ning up from the bot­tom of the heel to the top.

When it comes to heels, you can ei­ther choose block or mule. If it’s a block heel, make it a con­trast colour to the rest of the shoe as seen by Gucci, Lan­vin and Marni. Solid colour is a pre­ferred choice in vel­vet as done by Dries Van Noten that goes for curves from heel to shoe.

We love laces in vari­a­tion; Chanel is all sil­ver python and PVC, Louis Vuit­ton does a loafer with a mule and Ferragamo has laces that run up the calves.

Big buck­les are the way to go for Dior and Gucci. And when it comes to a hy­brid of styles, look to Marni and Chanel who veer some­where be­tween a mule and boot.

It’s the sea­son of os­ten­ta­tion and the only way to step into spring is to walk on the wild side.
