2012's Best Celebrity Shoe Fashion

Don’t we all wish we could walk in the footsteps of celebrities? Sure, many of us want to be famous, but we're literally talking about their footsteps. With their envious shoe collection, who wouldn’t want to swap places with a fashion forward celeb? I know I would! With 2013 almost here, Clickless is taking a look at the celebrity shoe fashion that made the cut in 2012.

Platform Pumps

Classy and comfortable, you can never go wrong with a pair of platform pumps. Take a cue from Beyoncé, who made a statement with navy and gold striped Marni Mary Jane platform pumps while managing some last minute shopping in NYC.

Striped Pumps

Considering pumps are the LBD (little black dress) of the shoe world, that's not the only time pumps will make the 2012 list. Check out Miley Cyrus’s zebra striped pumps. Let’s ignore the hideous hairdo and apparent lack of a shirt, let alone bra. The zebra pumps salvaged the look for the ex-Disney star at the Billboard Music Awards this year.

 Blade Heel

Everyone from Cameron Diaz to Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian has been spotted wearing the current rage: Casadei blade heels. True to the name, these razor sharp heels are welded into the upper sole of the shoes (basically pumps, yet again) by a durable leather sheath.

Metallic Shoes

From loafers to pumps, metal was the word in 2012. Shiny shod feet were the rage on the runway and red carpet, with almost every celebrity showing off a pair at one point during the year. Those who chose to play it safe stuck to metallic heels on decadent wedges and strappy sandals, while others went all out in metallic pumps and boots.

Cap Toe

Honestly, whether you are a flats-only kind of girl or heels are your BFF, cap toes have been unavoidable this year. Cap toe pumps, sandals, ballerina flats, and even boots work well with every outfit. You can choose to stick to the conventional metal cap toe, or up the ante with studded metal spikes. We predict the cap toe trend will continue well into 2013. Britney Spears wore Yves Saint Laurent cap toe platform pumps for the X Factor party.

Kristen Stewart paired her animal print dress with a metal cap toe at the Louis Vitton Marc Jacob Exhibition

Snake Print

It's not exactly a new trend, but snake prints - especially with a metal tinge - got a revival and caught the eye of a couple of celebs this year. The snake print was one of the hottest fall trends in 2012 and was prominently featured on not just accessories but also dresses and jackets. Blake Lively, who is known for her immaculate fashion sense, got the look right by pairing up a floral mid-thigh skirt and bright fluorescent bag with snake printed shoes in mustard and brown.

Suede Wedges

A classic mixture of elegance, feminism, and comfort, the classic suede wedge can work whether you're off to run a daytime errand or looking to complement your party dress.

Even the duchess of Cambridge couldn’t resist a pair.

High Heeled Boots

As the temps drop and you add layers to your outfit, add in a touch of sensuality with thigh-high heeled boots. Keep your feet happily snug and step out in style. When we think of thigh-high boots, Julia Roberts often comes to our minds, but this year the trend was well embodied by the likes of Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, and Katy Perry.
