Bows will never ever leave the shoe industry... ever. It is a very versatile accent that you can put anywhere on the shoe--front, side or back. Regardless of where you put it, it simply makes any shoe extra feminine. Take for example this back bow mesh pump by Rock and Republic. It is sultry and sexy... the kind of you you should wear for leg baring dresses. Love it? Get it at Neiman Marcus for $325. It is a great buy for a shoe that is made entirely of leather.
