The summer of 2012 will see some new exciting trends in ladies shoes from hessian wedges, classic straps to neon brights. Sole Divas has a great range of shoes available for all manner of personality styles. Here is a guide to our top 6 selection of 2012 summer shoe trends.
Some of the comfiest heels you can ever wear are wedges and they are a great option when you want to couple style with comfort. D&G brought back the wedges in 2010 and it looks like they are here to stay. Because of the rubber heel, covered by woven hessian, wedges are incredibly comfortable to walk in and great for summer strolls. Check out this woven hessian wedge sandal in a pink splashed/distressed canvas. They have a 10cm heel and a pretty bow detail at the front.

Details or a mixture of colours on strappy sandals complete with buckles make for a great daytime look. These stunning heeled strappy sandals in antique grey, teal & purple boast a raised platform sole and an 8cm cone shaped stacked heel.
