Before you know it, you’ll be able to throw your boots in the back of the closet and break out all your favourite spring shoes. If you are looking to add a pair (or two) of new shoes to your spring wardrobe, check out these styles that we love.
Wedge sandals are the perfect choice for spring. Wedges are much more comfortable than skinny-heeled stilettos. You’ll love the Rachelle heels (Saba, $229) dressed up in kid suede and contrasting nappa leather. These versatile shoes will make the perfect partner for your favourite spring dress, but will be just as fabulous with your favourite jeans. If you are looking for something with a lower heel, try the Marsy sandals (Mollini, $120). Available in tan or black, these leather demi wedges feature a thick ankle strap with a velcro closure.
The colourblock trend will be hot once again for spring. If you are looking for the perfect shoe for a spring party or a special night out, consider the Top End Axis heels (Mollini, $130). Primary colours come together beautifully in these gorgeous diamante-encrusted satin shoes. These shoes have a sexy slingback style and platform sole, but the highlight is definitely the bright blue, yellow and red colour combination. Also, take a peek at the Dreamers leather sandals (Santini, $130) from Nude Footwear (seen above). These bold sandals feature glossy criss-cross straps in your choice of two colour combinations.
Jewelled thong sandals
Casual shoes don’t have to be boring. For casual wear, you can’t beat a pair of thong sandals embellished with jewels, stones and other accents. Right now, you can get the Gallaz Varija sandals (Santini, $30) on sale for half price.
This spring, look for crisp white shoes with a surprisingly edgy element. These fierce white heels from Tony Bianco are the answer. The Agnes high heels (Tony Bianco, $190) feature a studded and spiked pocket back. If you want to make a big statement this spring, these shoes will definitely do it.
One of the hottest colours for spring is a bit unexpected — peach. We’ll be seeing plenty of shoes and accessories in this terrific hue, from chunky sandals to crossbody bags. You’ll love the Bonbons Febee sandals (Santini, $100) in peach suede. Available in sizes 5.5 to 9.5, these shoes feature a sky-high wedge heel and two silver buckled straps.
The other colour that will be very popular in shoes this spring is mint green. Whether you are looking for heels for the office or more casual shoes for weekend wear, you’ll be able to find them in this fresh green shade. Ballet flats can be worn just about anywhere, and the Tony Bianco Madena flats (Tony Bianco, $130) look terrific in smooth matte mint capretto leather with black trim.
Don’t let your shoes take away from your outfit. If you are wearing an elaborate dress or bold patterns, stick with simple shoes. However, if what you are wearing is a little plain, experiment with footwear in unusual styles, bright colours and fun prints.
