The most useful thing I found (I am obsessed with shoes but the terrain makes it unfavourable for comfort) are the styles predicted (self-fulfilled?) to be big this Spring/Summer season.
In case you miss out on the cutesy squigglies all over the pages, the in-styles are anything checked or polka-dotted or flower printed or with fringes or in denim material, sandal boots, sandals (low heeled), clogs and espadrilles. There you have it, the most important 4 pages of the entire issue.
Looking at the shoe styles of the models, however, shows that platforms and high-heels (strappy) are still very much in season. Personally, I think platforms are awesome for this treacherous terrain but I think they make our feet look swollen and calves fat. Just my opinion.
