follow the yellow gold road.

Last spring, the leopard print loafers took the shoe world by storm. The season before that, it was all about the claw-shaped heel.  And, of course, we could never forget about the surprising glittery brogue upsurge of 2010.

But this season footwear looked to be walking without any direction or guiding light. That is, until now. 

The latest trend to step up to the plate is the gold toned heel, and everyone from Marc Jacobs to Topshop have jumped aboard.  Whether a wedge, stiletto, or platform, we've spotted the trend in a wide spectrum of styles, from the subtle daytime sandal to the perfect party shoe.

Check out our roundup below, but hurry- it's a bit of a gold rush.
