Hot is one of those words, kind of like "sexy" or "cute." It means something different to everyone. And, with "hot," there's even more ambiguity. You might be looking for hot shoes as in sexy shoes... or hot as in the trendiest or most popular styles. And within each of those categories, you might be looking for hot deals.

And, what if you want all of those things?

Well, you've come to the right place. Below, I rounded up brands and retailers of every type of hot shoes I could think of, including those with the best prices.

Sexy Shoes

As I said above, sexy is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Some women will manage to find sex appeal in a pair of flip flips. But generally speaking, I think most women tend to associate sexy shoes with heels. Often, really, really high heels, along with platform soles, lots of straps, maybe even a well-placed zipper.

Prices for shoes like this range from insanely low to nearly unaffordable. And naturally, one season's selection from any given brand or store may not be as sexy as the year before. Having said that, there are a few designer and brand names that you can usually depend to produce sexy shoes. Here's my short list of those labels, as well as some of the first websites I'd check if I were shopping for sexy styles.

Trendy Shoes

Though they may be considered "hot," the trendiest shoe styles aren't necessarily sexy. For example, women's oxfords might be considered hot when they're trending, but I don't think anyone would list sex appeal as one of the style's attributes.

When you're looking for the trendiest styles, sexy or not, here are some of the brands and stores you may want to look at first.
