Shoes that Shine: Summer sandals with the mirror effect
One trend that I’ve been loving this season is the use of super-shiny, metallic detail on shoes, particularly when the shoe is otherwise neutral, but one part is accented with highly reflective metallic material or metal plate detail. It’s basically like shoes with a pop of color, only with a pop of shine instead, which certainly adds a nice element of flash. I also find it particularly appros for summer, when the sun is shining and high-gloss shoes reflect that light, creating a modern, oh-so-bright effect. If you like reflective mirror detail on shoes too, especially at a moderate price point, I’ve rounded up various options that provide the look. For instance, the Sam Edelman Yelena (pictured above) for $133 with free 2-day shipping at Endless. You can also shop at Belk to get them on sale for $70 and shipping is free if your order totals $99 or more. Here are some more:
