My favourite construction - the wedge!
Wedges have been the biggest area in a lot of shoe stores for a couple of seasons now.
Although I did still see a lot of platform espadrille wedges (they were looking so so old though!), the newness was really to me, evident in the smarter, net sole versions.
Covering both shoes and sandal commodities, wedges are big, big, big for Summer'12.
