Another season is behind us, which means it’s time to do a wardrobe switcharoo – out with the heavy winter clothes, and in with the lightweight materials and pastel colors! This goes for shoes too, so put those boots with the fur back in storage, and pull out your spring kicks. Whether you’re in the market for a new pair of comfortable shoes for the season or just want the latest style, look no further – walk into spring with these four top shoe brands of the season:
If you’re looking for a durable, comfortable and affordable shoe, Clarks is the way to go. These shoes are comfortable yet upscale and come in many different styles – casual for a long walk and classy for a dinner party or work. Clarks fit like a glove and provide excellent support and cushion underneath your feet. Additionally, they are flexible and lightweight, which is the perfect combination for when the air really starts to warm up. Slip on the Clarence Award Wedge Sandal is for a morning walk to the coffee shop with your girlfriends. With a pair of fitted jeans, a basic T-shirt and a denim jacket, your rocking both style and comfort. All your friends are going to wonder where you got those shoes from!
If you’re gearing up for all the spring weddings you have this year, you’re definitely going to want a comfortable heel to help you through long nights of dancing and mingling. The Crews Reading Pump is a low heel with a slimming toe that comes in both black leather and nude snake print. Wear this with a fancy dress to achieve a nighttime look or with a pair of black slacks for the office.
2. Hush Puppies
For a more casual spring look, consider investing in some Hush Puppies. This brand offers enhanced comfort and function through its HPO2Flex, HPThree, WeatherSMART, WorryFreeSuede and ZeroG capabilities. The shoe’s cushion triangle footbed conforms to your foot and provides pair circulation, flexibility and extra support. You no longer have to worry about those April showers, either! Hush Puppies are resistant against water, stains, scuffs, and their water-repelling leathers keep your feet dry, while still providing comfort and style.
Low ankle boots are pretty popular this spring, so a pair of the Cyra Catelyn II Booties will look great with your floral sundresses. This delicate suede bootie will keep you cool with a perforated design alongside your ankle, and the shoe comes in aqua blue, tan, rosebud and off white. For all you fashionistas out there who don’t already know, Pantone has spoken, and this year’s colors are rose quartz and serenity (powder blue), which are two options for the booties. Don’t worry about looking like a piece of bubble gum or a smurf. The rosebud and aqua blue booties are subtle pastel colors that will look great with a pair of cuffed jeans and a white button-down blouse – perfect for a casual Friday at the office or for a daytime date!
3. Soft style
This spring, strut your stuff in a pair of Soft Style shoes. If you’re looking for comfort, style, and a decent price, your search stops here, because this style of shoe offers all three. Show off your glam side and dance your way through spring with the Hula Espadrille flats by Soft Style. Its metallic fabric, rhinestone embellishment and braided rope sole complement a pair of white linen pants worn with a fitted camisole and vintage jean jacket. You can slip these bad boys on when you’re in a hurry and not have to worry about looking too casual. The bedazzled embellishment on the top of the shoes will always add a fancy element to any ensemble.
The Rini Thong by Soft Style is the go-to shoe for a sandy beach bash or backyard pool party. With a pop of color and hint of glam, you’ll be sporting a stylish yet cool outdoor vibe. Additionally, the elastic stretch band is comfortable and makes these shoes easy to wear all day.
You always need a trusty pair of gym shoes on deck once the warm weather hits. Skechers shoes are great for jogging, running errands and traveling. It’s the perfect shoe for those long treks across the airport! Skechers are durable and flexible, and they’re made of mesh material that is lightweight, allowing your feet to breathe as the weather continues to warm up.
If you’re looking for a stylish way to wear sneakers outside the gym, just slip on a pair of cut-off or cuffed jeans, or leggings. Pair them with a basic tee or classic button-down and throw on a cute leather jacket; accessorize with a pattered, lightweight fashion scarf to enhance the style a bit more.
