Your favorite Spring Comfort Shoe Guide has arrived! We have included fan favorites from the blog, tried and true client favorites, plus new styles we can’t wait to try. Comfortable shoes don’t have to be boring! Hot pink lizard loafer anyone? Keep scrolling for our favorite spring comfort shoes and trends!
Flats and Loafers
Sick of your boots but not ready for sandals? A flat or loafer is the perfect spring comfort shoe to wear with pants and jeans. Spend the time to find the most comfortable pair for your particular feet and you will be taking walks at lunchtime every day. Impossible to fit? Try the Trotters Liz Croco Loafer or Harlowe Flats.
Flat and Flatform Sandals
The “flatform” is the latest trend in sandals. I love the flatform because it has the comfort of a flat but the height of a heel or wedge. The flatform can be refined, such as the Cole Haan Grand Ambition Flatform Sandal below. Or they can be funky but practical, like the leopard Teva Midform Universal Sandal. Not into the flatform? Don’t worry. We have some super comfy, very stylish flat sandals for you too.
Slides and Mules
Nothing is easier in summer than a slide or a mule. Slip it on and go. Super helpful when you don’t have a free hand! You know by now how much we love our Birkenstock Arizona EVA Essentials as a flip flop replacement. Kyle still loves her Birkenstock Madrid Big Buckle Slide Sandal. And, even though I already have the flat version of the block-heeled Vaneli Choux Sandals (in two colors!), I don’t want this style any less!
Wedges and Heeled Sandals
A wedge or heeled sandal is the perfect spring comfort shoe if you wear a lot of dresses or skirts in the spring and summer. My best friend has a version of the Dansko Malin Clog Sandal in a gorgeous light tan color. Practically every time she texts me to ask which shoe she should wear with an outfit, I pick that one. It just makes the outfit! Now if only they would reissue her shoe so I could buy myself a pair…
Kyle has been searching for a replacement dressy black sandal, and I think the Cole Haan Adella Sandal in black is the answer!
Sometimes you just need a pump. But that doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. My favorite Ally pumps now come in Vegan Black Leather! If you need a shoe with a really low heel, you can’t beat the Naturalizer Banks Flat. Which is not a flat, so I don’t know why they call it that!
You should have a pair of sneakers in your spring comfort shoe arsenal. Not running shoes, but cute spring sneakers. I’m loving the pink Freya Suede Sneakers myself. A mom at school (who always looks amazing!) has been sporting a pair of muted pink leather sneakers the past few weeks. If that doesn’t sound practical, how about a Rothy’s Sneaker (made from recycled materials) that you can throw in the washing machine? They come in great colors and patterns. You can also wash the Everlane Forever Slip-On Sneaker. Bonus! There is a lace up style too and they are are fully recyclable!
