For many, shoes are more than just a way to cover our feet — they're our "sole" sisters! TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares ways to flaunt your feet in style.
As a lover of shoes AND sparkles, I flipped for this idea that was shared on my Facebook wall. BlingIsTheNewBlack.com offers stick-on "bling bottoms" that can be custom fit for the soles of your shoes. From pink and sapphire to classic crystal, the appliques are a fun and affordable way to step up your shoe game ($39; BlingIsTheNewBlack.com).
For those about to tie the knot, there's also a world of witty wedding appliques out there. Whether you need something new or something blue, Suspended Moments has shimmering stickers for soles that say "I Do," "Me Too" and more — a flirty and fanciful secret for the bride and groom ($10; Suspended-Moments.com).
No spring or summer ensemble is complete without a perfect pair of flip flops, and if you haven't found a favorite style in stores yet, look no further than Sandalista.com, a customized sandals site. You can choose a strap color and sole design from the site's library of thousands of images, or you can upload your own image. It's the perfect way to relive vacation memories and favorite photos with every step! ($24; Sandalista.com).
Last but not least, any gal knows that a long day on high heels can leave you feeling less than glamorous. Thankfully, you can turn to Insolia's doctor-designed, weight-shifting shoe inserts. When worn inside heels, the invisible inserts help you stride more naturally, allowing you to wear your favorite footwear for up to three times longer! They even reduce foot pain and pressure and can help improve posture ($19.95; insolia.com).
