Chic and Comfy Spring Shoes

Springtime means blooming flowers, April showers, and the perfect excuse to stock up on new shoes. As much as we love a stiletto, our busy, active lives demand that we take both comfort and style into account. Luckily, we can have our cake and eat it too with these comfy and chic shoes!

A pair of midheel peep-toe booties will effortlessly take you from spring to fall and everywhere in between. Try playing with an on-trend pastel color, which also is hot for all seasons. Model Liu Wen opted for baby blue, but pink, mint green or lilac work just as well!

While her sisters wore their sky-high heels for a cross-country flight, Kourtney Kardashian smartly opted for a pair of easy-luxe espadrilles. Her warm-weather-friendly flats get a downtown-edgy update with sleek leather.

Silver sandals will be a staple in your spring and summer wardrobes. The metallic sheen complements a spectrum of colors. Plus, a chunky heel brings you stability in anything from slouchy boyfriend jeans to a dressy flared midiskirt, as seen on Rashida Jones.

If you didn’t get the memo, luxe sneakers are the hottest accessories for the season. So take a cue from Rihanna (and her Chanel kicks) and wear them in an Easter-egg hue with a skirt (or just your weekend-casual jeans). Your feet will thank you.
