Hot Trend in Women’s Shoes: Saddles Shoes 2011

Saddle ShoesDo you own a pair of saddle shoes?

Maybe the better question would be, ‘Have you ever owned a pair of saddle shoes?’. You may have to think back to your elementary school sock hop or the high school throwback dance to remember the last time you wore a pair of saddle shoes.

These days, though, you might be missing out on one of the hottest trends in women’s footwear. Saddle shoes are back in style and more women each day are catching on to the trend.

Women’s Saddle Shoes 2011

What’s always been great about the saddle shoe is the contrasting colors. The most common contrast pattern even today is the black and white version. There are tons of other combinations including just about any color paired with black, brown, white, and even tan and gray.

It can be fun to match a pair of tan and baby blue saddle shoes with a favorite skirt and top.

You should be seeing more of the saddle shoe as we leave the summer months and head into Fall 2011. The saddle is back in style and the suede versions will start showing up as people bring out the fall and winter fashion. I think the saddle shoe gives people a little reprieve from the typically boring fall and winter season by adding a little splash of color contrast to any outfit.
