Designers felt the bootie call for spring '13, but the season's standout styles are more like sexed-up sandal crossovers than the usual fare, featuring opened-up details for a fresh spring vibe. Slim slingbacks added a feminine touch to runway-ready booties at Balenciaga, Narciso Rodriguez and Proenza Schouler, while mesh, corsetry and other skin-baring details made for serious sex appeal at Nicholas Kirkwood and Zoraide. It's open season for top designers in the bootie category.
