Spring Shoe Trend: Multi-Strap Sandals
Dubbed the "dental floss" sandals, these straps are thin and slightly minimalist, giving us early aughts vibes. With walkable heels, bright colors, and even in flat silhouettes, these iterations will pair well with all the Spring dresses we're dying to wear.
Spring 2019 Shoe Trend: Animal Prints
Snake, leopard, zebra — no wild print is off limits. From head to toe, these patterns are taking over, but we love them most on shoes for their versatility and ability to perk up any outfit.

Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: Slides
Easy to wear, we'll be having a full-blown love affair with our pool slides, thanks to the many designer versions to choose from. With embellishments, embossing, bright hues, and luxe-looking details, these sandals might have started as a "pool slide" trend, but we're wearing them everywhere else, too.

Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: Mules
With the ease of a slide-on sandal, but the appeal of a more polished pump, these are the have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too of footwear. We're looking to fresh patterns, added embellishments, and beyond for a shoe we can wear work to weekend.
Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: Ankle-Wrap Sandals
When the weather warms and we ditch our socks, what better than to help show off our bare legs than a sexy ankle strap? These shoes add a playful, sultry touch to just about everything, from workwear to your cocktail dresses.

Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: Transparent
PVC, sheer mesh, and otherwise see-through finishes have been added to sandals, flats, heels, and platforms putting a fresh spin on all of our favorite Spring shoe styles. Add them to jeans for a fun juxtaposition, or embrace the leg-lengthening effect when you add them to a flirty dress.

Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: White
White finishes have been favored for seasons now on boots and pumps, but they're not going anywhere this Spring. The bright white hue gives flat sandals, block heels, glove pumps, and everything in between a newness that pops with all our Spring looks.
Spring 2019 Shoe Trends: Chunky Sneakers
From cushy platforms and flatforms, sneakers with the thickest soles are in the limelight. Whether they have a slightly early aughts feel or a more contemporary "dad sneaker" bod, it's all about a sneaker that's got some real kick, so skip the subtlety this season.
