The Sexiest Shoes of 2012

25 extraordinary nominees from 25 brilliant shoe designers. The votes are in and the sexiest shoe of the year goes to...none other than stiletto maestro Christian Louboutin with an ultra sexy pair of red studded 'Pigalle' pumps. The 'Sexiest Shoe of the Year' competition was held by Saks Fifth Avenue earlier this month, where shoe lovers everywhere got an opportunity to vote online for their favourite pair. 

I am sure you've seen the Top 4 high heels that reigned in the highest results. But, do you agree on them? What about the remaining equally worthy 21 pairs? 

The Winners

First Place: Christian Louboutin's Red studded Pigalle pumps
Second Place: Stuart Weitzman's burgundy patent leather stiletto pumps
Third Place: Jimmy Choo with a suede and silver sequin embellished sandal
Fourth Place: Brian Atwood over-the knee suede and studded boots.

The Rest of the Contenders 

The thing about shoes is that we all don't have the same taste, and we wouldn't necessarily crown the exact same pair as top of the footwear pile. 
Which pair would you personally vote as the sexiest shoe of the year?


VintageDanielle said...

I think the voters got it right. That red studded heel is a sexy heel indeed!

Shes Dressing Up said...

Ooh shoe porn! I think my faves are the Nicholas Kirkwoods or the Aperlai's!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

i love those stuart weitzman and roger vivier.

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Oooh great post Sam! You know what though, I actually really dislike all of of the top 4 shoes apart from those patent red leather ones by Stuart Weitzman.

My picks would be...hmm...the teal heels by Alexandre Birman, the hot pink Manolo Blahniks and those gorgeous black Prada wedges. Oooh, and I'm loving all those sparkles up top too. Sigh, if only one pair of these could make their way into my closet!!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

These shoes are all totally to die for! My vote would go to the Jimmy Choo's!

Thanks for your lovely comment today. The best part of blogging is getting to share and learn from other wonderful bloggers such as yourself :) Good luck on your entry my dear!

Wow you really did find the most amazing shoes! I'm overwhelmed.. I want them all!

MOSAMUSE said...

great miu mius!! and the brian atwood boots!


RachieCakes said...

The winner is great, but I'd actually vote on #2 or the manolos!

Zahra Sandberg said...

Hands-down - I'd pick the Valentino pair with the lace and the ankle strap! That is the definition of a sexy shoe! The red Manolo's are a close second for me - I just think a stiletto and an ankle strap is perfection!



The Chic Sheet said...

I have to admit that I think the Manolo is way sexier ;)


Madeline said...

I like the sergio rossi ones with the moon and star, mostly because of the moon and star...

Caitie Schlisserman said...

I love all of these shoes and can't just pick one! I think the sexiest thing is how a lady wears a shoe... nothing is sexier than some confidence!


erica marie said...

I'm loving the Jimmy Choo heel for a fun night out.

xo erica

Kaeli said...

I love the sequin Oscar de la Renta. The Manolo is great too.

Now following!

Lipgloss Kisses said...

I actually prefer some of the contenders. :)

Nicole said...

Oh wow. This is too difficult....
I actually love all of them :/
But I really love the Prada's, Miu Miu's and Blahniks though.

Ember Drake said...

Oh wow so many gorgeous shoes to choose from!

I'm not actually a fan of either of the top 3. My favourites would have been the Sergio Rossi stilettos and the Jean-Michel Cazabat ankle boots! Both are gorgeous!



Antonella C'est moi said...

stunning shoes!!kisses


Kelinha said...

Hi dear. Francesinha is a typical food from my city, Oporto, in Portugal. It is basically a sandwich with sausage, fresh sausage, ham steak and beef, topped with cheese but special touch comes through tomato-based sauce, beer and chilli. Usually comes with fried egg on top of the sandwich and fries. It tastes so good! You must try :)

Chris Ed said...

Hi Sam, lovely selection! My favourite pair is the Miu Miu sparkly one!

Miss Margaret Cruzemark

Jessica said...

Denise said...

I have been very sick, but I think this afternoon I'm a bit better! For me, the 2nd place is awesome, but my favorite is Alexander Birman's and then YSL. Then the 2nd place SW! :) Hope you are fine!

Jacy said...

I would have to say that my very favorites are the Prada wedges at the bottom and the 2nd place winner! Gorgeous collection though!



Anonymous said...

Christian Louboutin's are ofcourse the winner! I also absolutely love shoes by Giussepe Zanotti, they are so stunning and sexy.
Loving those wedges by Prada btw!


Elisabeth said...

I just really love red shoes, like the ones I won, so I think the award went to the right pair this time! <3
Everything will be sorted out at my work by new year, so still two months of waiting..but one need to look at the bright side of life until that!
I would love to hear more about the women who have made a difference in your country!

Daniella said...

Hi Sam, What a great post. There are soooo many amazing shoes here and a lot of them are very "sexy". I think the Jimmy Choos are a sexy shoe and also the Sigerson Morrison pair are also. :)
