In spring and summer 2016 collections, sandals on stable and straight platform, masculine style, have become a trend of the new season. It is this sandals design that has decorative elements to a minimum: two to three thick straps and a flat sole.

In the new season 2016 just as in 1941, wedge sandals are very actual.
The history of fashion platforms is very changeable, they appear and disappear. But now we’ll not describe the history of platforms, we will say just about their moment of glory: it was in the 40’s, 70’s and 80’s.
In the 90’s of last century, platforms have appeared in big way and were combined with a thick heel. In 2000, tall and thin heel with platform gave shoes a touch of femininity, sophistication and elegance. On par with high platform has been also interpreted the wedge platform.
In spring-summer season 2016 platforms are again very actual. Tall and thin heel has not disappeared, but designers have opted for sandals with thick heel and platform. Wedges sandals still remain but with different heights.

A good acquisition can be heeled sandals or wedges, sabo, mules or sandals in masculine style. Mules once symbolized the luxury of the Hollywood vintage and Sabo – work shoes. Current fashion change what was once, remembering the past and creating new options.

The materials used to manufacture footwear are very different and amazing at the same time: from reptile leather to colorless plastic; the color remains at your discretion.

As decor for summer footwear belts, straps and all kinds of braids prevail, created by designer’s fantasy from thin and thick belts, and in some places very thick. Braids are twisted around the leg of textile ribbons, leather, closed with buckles, draw patterns in letter T. The bared leg, covered with straps, look very sexy. Straps around the ankle are a trend of the new season.
