The Easy Way to Wear Hardware

Nicky HiltonShoes with Attitude!

Nowadays, designers are adding pretty much anything to make their shoes stand apart from all others. By adding fasteners, buckles, studs and chains they are not only making one of a kind footwear, but also doing so in a chic and fashionable way. Don’t let the name fool you, wearing hardware is actually quite easy. Keeping the rest of your ensemble simple and spicing it up with a pair of studded shoes is a great way to wear this fashion forward look.

So who’s rockin’ those fabulous Christian Louboutin booties in the featured photo? They happen to belong to Nicky Hilton. She was spotted wearing them in New York’s Upper East Side. She isn’t the only celeb recently caught wearing shoes with a rocker flare. Victoria Beckham is also frequently seen strutting around in ‘posh’ studded shoes! I know what you’re probably thinking – a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps would be amazing, but at the moment you just don’t have $700 to drop on a pair of shoes. Well, have no fear; I picked out some hardware embellished shoes that won’t break the budget! I found everything from pumps and shooties to western and even rain boots that have all the nuts and bolts of this stylish trend.

Who would have thought what could be found in a toolbox could look so good on a shoe? I like these pumps because they have an armyesque look to it, and let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t look and feel confident in uniform.

Here’s a second pump by Dereon and is another option for creating a unique and stylish look. When the sun goes down, it’s time for you to turn up the heat. Thanks to these fabulous pumps, that’s not going to be a problem!

This motorcycle style boot is equipped to handle the rain. The crisscrossing studded straps give an ordinary rain boot an edgy flare and definitely won’t have you singing rain, rain go away!
