Spring's Must-Have Shoe Styles

Six spring shoe styles every woman needs

Images loading...

The Flat Espadrille

Espadrilles have been around forever—well, at least to the 14th century. But they have been rejuvenated this spring with prints, laces, embellishments, perforations and unique materials such as leather and lace. Soludos Derby print lace-up espadrilles, $65, soludos.com.

The Spring Bootie

When the weather gets warmer, it's natural to want to retire all your boots until fall, but don't. Spring ankle booties look great with drawstring silk pants or a pair of boyfriend jeans. Choose a style with an open toe or slingback, or both, so that your feet won't be too covered up. Loeffler Randall Alix Bootie in Beach, $350, loefflerrandall.com.

The Strappy Sandal

Differing from the intricate strappy heels of seasons past, this updated version has minimal straps for a fresh, modern look. Understated sexy at its best. Stuart Weitzman Nudist in Geranium Suede, $398, stuartweitzman.com.

The Mule

Let’s be clear: These are not your grandmother's mules. The updated versions range from stilettos to chunky heels to wedges. We love the architectural look of this French Connection pair. Wear them with everything from spring's midi skirts to cropped trousers. French Connection Randy Mule in Rustic Tan, $139.95, nordstrom.com.

The Block Heel

Block heels, low heels, chunky heels—whatever you want to call them, our feet are doing a happy dance, literally! Just the right amount of height to lengthen your legs but still wearable all day. Tory Burch Tana Low Heel Sandals in Black & Ivory, $275, shopbop.com.

The Slide Sandal

No longer reserved for poolside lounging, slide sandals are popular for their sleek look and versatility. They would be ├╝ber-chic with a flowy caftan at the beach or styled with a pair of cropped, tailored pants at the office. Eileen Fisher Folly Metallic Leather Slide Sandal in Nude/Platinum, $98, neimanmarcus.com.
