It can be hard to pick the best BCBGeneration shoes, especially considering the strength of the brand as a whole. BCBG stands for “Bon Chic Bon Genre,” or “good style good attitude.” Founded by Max Azria in 1989, the line continued to make a strong impression on the Spring 2011 runways. Perhaps one of the strongest elements of the Spring collection is the footwear.
Azria nails the essential pump by incorporating patent leather, which is definitely in this season. The Tina Classic Pump is available in red and tapioca, and the almost five inch heel makes it an absolute showstopper. The BCBGeneration Pointy-Toed Pump in gold is especially stunning; the glitter transcends the classy pump to a whole new level of stylish.
Another spring trend that Azria incorporated into the line is wedges. The Tapis Wedge Espadrille comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The black seems to be the best choice when looking for the variation of the shoe that could work for both day and night. The BCBGeneration Crespo Cork Wedge Sandal also comes in a multitude of colors, including gold, panna/stone, and light peach/light melon. The latter captures the fun, juicy colors that are in style for spring. The Castles Braided Wedge Sandal in warm cream is another shoe that is perfect for trotting around in warm weather.
The Preston Braided High-Heel Sandal comes in both gray and white. Either color would be appropriate for night or day. The strappy little heels are classy and fresh for spring.
One of the most spectacular pair of shoes in the BCBGeneration Spring 2011 footwear collection is the Blinks Stacked Platform High Heel in dark cocoa. The exposed tortoise pattern platform is accentuated by the woven knot detail on the straps across the vamp. With a five and one half inch heel and a two-inch platform, these shoes are the perfect accessory to any fun, flirty outfit.
