This spring designers have taken advantage of the lining, the bottom of the sole and numerous other out-of-the-way areas to add a touch of personality and vivre to the quotidian basic. Jeffrey Campbell's Attic sports a bright aqua beneath its blacks and browns. Pour La Victoire's Bianca does the same with acid yellows and baby blues.
Like the caves at Lascaux, this artistry is intentionally hidden. But when just a peep is revealed it speaks volumes about your personality. (Unlike the caves, aurochs, buffalo and horses are not depicted on these shoes. Sorry.) It also gives you extra lattitude to style your wardrobe -- a second tier of colors to work with.
These shoes are fun, bright and upbeat -- the perfect introduction to spring!
