Red Shoes! Our Summer Footwear Obsession Of The Moment

We love a new spin on an old classic, so we were pumped, so to speak, when we saw how many amazing options there are right now for a racy red shoe. For women who tend to shy away from color, or, if you're a lady who LOVES to push the sartorial limits, a red heel can do wonders to wake up a sleepy wardrobe. We can't commute to the Loop in the same black flats every day, and who would want to? Better still, there is no sexier way to amp up your Lincoln Park date night look than with a smoldering shoe. So, we've scoured local boutiques and beyond for these powerful red gems, giving you the perfect excuse to invest in a shoe staple you'll keep (and wear!) forever.
