Jennifer Astin writes: The beginning of May marks a long-anticipated break from the bleakness of wintry days to the optimism of temperate spring afternoons. This feeling of hopefulness seems to be rubbing off on some of my favorite shoe bloggers. Let's take a peek at what they're up to this week, shall we?

  • Second City Style reports that legendary designer Carmen Marc Valvo will be debuting his first footwear collection this fall, dubbed "Carmen Marc Valvo Calzature" and drawing inspiration from Valvo's punk/baroque themed Fall 2013 runway show.  

  • Fashion Bomb Daily offers several images of the latest celebrity footwear trend, the Aline High T-Strap Sandals; Alexander Wang's $695 gladiator style heels. 

  • SHOELUST graciously pointed its readers toward these fantastic nude suede Azzedine Alaia ankle strap beauties, proving that Alaia footwear is currently King. 

  • NYC fashion maven Blair Eadie (above), writer of Atlantic-Pacific, proves that neon never goes out of style by showing us a fresh way to wear it. God Bless Kate Spade.
