Let’s not beat around the bush here: Spring shoe shopping is fun. Even for me, someone who basically never shops shoes, no matter the season. Spring gives our feet a break from the cavernous snow boots they’ve been inhabiting for months on end, and invites our toes out into the sunlight. And it’s only fair that our precious feet to get to make their seasonal debut in some cute AF spring sandals, heels or flats, right?
As someone who values function about as much as fashion, spring sandals are my sartorial bread and butter once the temperatures warm up on a consistent basis. My footwear repertoire is pretty pared down; sandals for hot days, sneakers for cool ones, boots for cold ones and snow boots for really cold ones. I own one pair for each weather situation, and that’s it. (Marie Kondo would be so proud.)
Needless to say, when it comes time to replace one of those go-tos, a lot of effort and energy is involved. I’m about to depend on these spring sandals—and depend on them hard. They have to be comfy enough to wear on the daily, cute enough to elevate any outfit I assemble and versatile enough to take me anywhere. My spring sandals bar is pretty damn high—but I can honestly say, there’s a veritable plethora of spring sandals on offer that meet my standards and that I’d be legitimately psyched to slip my feet into this season.
1. Birkenstock Arizona Eva Sandal, $40 at Urban Outfitters
