Ask women about what their favorite item to shop for is and the answer comes back the same each time: shoes. And when it comes to shoe shopping, nothing is off the table. Sandals, high-heels, flats and boots are just a sample of shoe types that keep customers salivating and closets full.
Under the bed, on the floor of the closet -- or closets -- and just about anywhere around the house, shoes are scattered throughout. Shoes don't get thrown out; they're part of an ever-changing cycle that watches them get flip-flopped like a baseball coach shuffling his lineup.
While the collection only gets added to, the styles change quickly. Perhaps "change" isn't the correct word as opposed to styles making a comeback. The latest shoe trend shows a propensity to revisit the 1960s and 1970s. The latter decade was filled with sequins and that design is back in full force at famed shoe-driven stores such as Nine West.
That store sports sequin sandals throughout its inventory, none quite as popular as the aptly titled "Sequin" collection that is part of the Nine West Vintage Collection. Another throwback style shoe courtesy of Nine West and other reputable shoe loving retailers comes courtesy of the 1970s, complete with fringes galore. Nine West chronicles its most popular shoes and collections called the "Maine," "Cerise" and "Station."
Those aforementioned styles might seem fleeting but Nine West has listed them as best sellers even at a higher-than-average price point. It doesn't hurt that these styles get free advertising courtesy of famous celebrities sporting them on the cover of People Magazine thus adding to their selling power and credibility as more than just flash-in-the-pan footwear.
