It’s time to flaunt your toes, ladies! We’ve been seeing a lot of open toe shoes on the Spring 2008 runway. From booties, oxfords, pumps, sandals, to sling backs, showing at least a glimpse of toes. It seems to me that the front cutout this time is more narrow, they look more like peep toes but much smaller than the regular ones and they come in multiple textures, materials, colors, and heels.

There’s a nice article I’ve found online about some tips for wearing these open toe shoes, here. I’m personally not a big fan of open toe shoes, just because my toes are so big, especially my index toe ;( so whenever I wear those shoes, it looks like I’m giving a middle finger (toe) to everyone =) hehe.. But, I’m falling in love with the peep toe booties, we’ve all seen them since early fall last year, especially worn by Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, and Lindsay Lohan (picture above). And this Spring, they also come in bright Spring colors. Well, maybe I should give them another try this time !
