8 Hot Shoe Styles For Summer | Discount Summer Shoes For Women

High, tall, strappy and colorful are all appropriate descriptions of 2012's summer shoe fashions. And that's not all - glitters, metal toes, and natural colors are in the mix as well. Even clear shoes are showing off this summer.

Metal Toes  -  Not Just for Work Boots Anymore In the old days, metal toes on shoes meant they were work shoes. But now the trend toward metal toes is not for protection from injury; it's to add a metallic sparkle to ordinary shoes, especially high heels. And the look of metal toes varies quite a bit, from studded and chunky to thin and pointy.

Clear  - Yes, clear shoes are trending this season, from high heels to sandals to flats. The clear look was introduced in force in 2011, but it's catching on more in 2012. This summer's clear shoes are not necessarily all clear; you'll often find that just parts of the shoe or sandal are clear. The clear elements are mingled with stripes, straps, and dramatic heels.
