I heart these Valentine’s Day shoes in pink & red
Valentine’s Day is coming up and I, for one, am already feeling the love – the shoe love, that is. When it comes to what you wear on the day, anything goes, but it’s one of those holidays that tends to bring out our romantic side. For shoes, that can translate into anything from sweet and girly to fiercely seductive – depending on the desired effect – but with plenty of feminine details. And if you really want to get into the V-day spirit, you wear the classic team colors of pink and red. That’s why I’ve gathered up a selection of shoes that I think are perfect for the day. But, before I get into that, you’re probably wondering about the shoes pictured above, right? An image of these dramatic platforms popped up in the shopping results while I was doing a search on Google and I had to post the pic because they are just so…heart-tastic. Then I found out they are sold by a site that specializes in selling shoes for dancers (ok, strippers). But if you want to know where to get them, they are sold for $199.95 at a site appropriately called Booty Cocktails (lol) and they are actually hand-carved and custom made with each order. Admittedly, I think they are pretty cool, but obviously very extreme. If you want to express your Valentine’s Day cheer in a much more subtle way, here are some more options:
