Nothing says spring quite like a fresh pair of kicks. Whether you prefer to don heels, wedges, flats or sneakers, spring means cleaning out your closet and hitting the BOGO sales to spruce up your warmer weather wardrobe with your new favorite pair of shoes.
Katie T.—Hunter Boots
Although everyone seems to have them, I’ve paired my Hunters with skirts, dresses, leggings and jeans. For a college girl on a limited budget, this “splurge” was well worth it—especially now that it’s rainy season here in Minnesota. They also come in a huge variety of colors and now patterns; you can’t go wrong.
Yes they’re boat shoes, and you look like the preppiest prep to ever prep. And admittedly I’ve been asked where I parked my yacht while wearing them. However, once they’ve been broken in, they are the most comfortable shoes in the world. I’ve trekked up cliffs, shopped ‘til I dropped, and brunched in them. They also come in every color/variation imaginable.
In the warmer weather with tons of outdoor festivals and activities, it’s easy to sacrifice style for comfort. With gladiator sandals, you don’t have to. Steve Madden has a wide variety of styles and colors available, so you are sure to find something that fits your wardrobe! (When it comes to shoes in general, Steve Madden is the bomb!)
Simone—Kate Spade For Keds
Kate Spade. Keds. Together. Need we say more?
Rachel—Sanuk Gilded Girl Flip Flops
The perfect easy, breezy shoe for the beach, quick trips to the store or a day of shopping. A notch above the go-to flip flop, with sparkles to boot!
I know a lot of people hate them/think they’re ugly, but they are super comfy and my favorite spring shoe!
Haley—Steve Madden Sandals
Steve Madden makes the best day-to-night sandals out there. They’re a little bit pricey but they’ll last way longer than cheap ones from another store.
Kelsey—Boots with a Decent Heel
I’m not a big brand person for shoes, since my foot is a whopping size 12 and narrow, and I just hope to find something in the vast shoe abyss that fits me. But I adore boots with heels. I know I’m six feet tall, but I have no qualms about rocking these suckers for any occasion. I have booties and tall boots with heels so I can mix and match them with different outfits. Basically they can make you look like a badass and absolutely divine.
I believe that a heel can make you feel like a completely different woman. Something about the height, the lift and the femininity of a heel with a cute sundress just screams spring! However, in traditional heels I tend to look more like Bambi learning how to walk than Jessica Rabbit. I’m clumsy, tall and more often than not, totally off-balance. A wedge is the perfect combination of sass, comfort and stability for my spring outings!
