7 Shoes That Make The Transition To Spring Easy

Spring weather is notoriously unpredictable, making it tricky to pick out the best shoe for your day. Do you dare risk breaking out the sandals and hope the sun stays out long enough to keep your feet warm? Building a balanced outfit is hard enough without the risk of spring showers thrown into the mix. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of seven stylish shoes that are perfect for braving the changing seasons. Have fun styling these spring essentials into tons of stunning outfits, you can thank us later!

The Timeless Ankle Bootie

One of the things we love so much about ankle booties is that you can wear them literally all year long. The ankle-high design keeps your legs from getting too warm during the warmer spring and summer months, yet the closed-toe design still protects your feet from the cold if you want to wear these during the wintertime. Plus, a chic suede leather bootie, such as the TOMS Everly Cutout boot, can easily be dressed up when paired with a dress or matched with your favorite skinny jean for a casual outfit you can wear just about anywhere.

Balletcore Flats

You can’t go wrong with a reliable flat. Ballet flats are a must-have for any professional woman as well as anybody who likes to dress up a little bit while still being super comfortable. Ballet-style shoes are super trendy right now, and in a low-heeled flat style, they won’t wreak havoc on your ankles after hours of wear. They’re also super versatile and go great both with dress slacks for a look you can wear to the office or comfy leggings and an oversized sweater for an outfit perfect for lounging at home, going shopping with friends, and so much more.

The Classic Mary Jane

Throw some vintage style into your spring looks with this forever-favorite formal style. One of the best things about Mary Janes is that they come in so many different shapes and styles, meaning there’s a Mary Jane for every aesthetic and every outfit. A great example of this is the Easy Spirit Cindie Mary Jane, which features the signature rounded toe and ankle strap of your standard Mary Jane shoe plus the ankle strap is adjustable for your comfort! This style comes in several different colors and has a 2-1/4” heel that instantly elevates any look.

Fashion Sneakers

We love a comfortable sneaker. We especially love a comfortable sneaker that adds a touch of sporty style to a casual outfit. At ShoeMall, we’ve got fashion sneakers to fit any look you could dream of. Want to go retro for a concert with friends? New Balance has tons of throw-back designs with comfort footbeds that can stand up to a night of fun and dancing. Sparkle more your style? Vintage Havana has tons of glam styles sure to steal the spotlight. Beneath all those fashion-forward details, durable rubber outsoles keep you safe from spring puddles and left-over snow from the tail-end of winter, keeping you comfy all day long.

Sporty Slip-Ons

With the return of warm weather comes all our favorite outdoor activities, and all sports enthusiasts know you need the right shoe to stay on your toes both on and off the court. Since spring weather can be crazy unpredictable, the chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine could come and go at a moment’s notice, and you need an easy-on shoe waiting on deck in order to get out and enjoy as much of it as you can. Propet’s TravelActiv Avid is perfect for the job, with a slip-on design you can get on in seconds. It also has a stretchy, breathable upper that keeps feet cool and comfortable as well as a cushioned footbed that puts an extra layer of protection between your foot and the tennis court. When you’re not working out, wear these as comfy everyday shoes with your favorite leggings and a hoodie. You’ll never want to take them off.

Clear Sandals

Clear sandals are already taking the summer fashion world by storm. They’re a great way to add a touch of style to an outfit without drawing too much attention to your feet, and away from the rest of your look. This spring, try a clear sandal with rhinestone or glitter details and match it to the gems on your dress or jewelry to pull the entire outfit together in a subtly glam fashion. You can also hop on another upcoming summer trend with a clear jelly sandal that’s perfect for the pool, beach, and everywhere in between.

Casual Clogs

Another great slip-on option, clogs are perfect for springtime. Just like several of the other shoes we’ve mentioned, these come in all shapes in sizes that can be styled into both casual and formal looks. For warm-weather parties and get-togethers with friends, try a pointed toe design with an elegant stiletto heel. For something cozy at home, look for a warm style with faux fur or an equally soft lining.
