    1. A ballet flat you don't even have to be a dancer to enjoy., Amazon

    Promising review: "These ballet-ish flats are simple but sophisticated, very secure thanks to the zippered back, and most importantly, have a very minimal breaking-in period. They fit perfectly, neither too tight nor loose. I’m tempted to buy these in a bunch of different colors too, because true to my flats-loving lifestyle, I've been wearing them every single day since I got them. Maybe one day I'll invest in an expensive pair of flats, but these are pretty damn dependable for the price — and yes, I've even worn them in the rain and they're still doing just fine. *skips off into the distance*" —Sarah Han (Read Sarah's full review here (#1).)

    Get them from Amazon for $10+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 33 colors and patterns).

    2. A platform espadrilles that'll soon be your go-to pick for your weekly brunch dates with your girlfriends. Carrie Brandshaw would be so proud.

    Promising review: "I love these platform sandals for spring and summer! I wore them all day for the first time last weekend, and they were really comfortable. I got lots of compliments!" —Lindsay

    Get them from Amazon for $13.88+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 16 colors and styles).

    3. A pair of floral sneakers that'll get you SOOOO many compliments. I mean, this babies are worth not seeing the sun for the past couple months.

    Kate Spade

    Keds have become my go-to sneakers over the past year. They're so comfy and cute, and every collaboration they have is amazing. You'll rock these babies all spring (and summer long).

    Get them from Keds for $89.95 (available in sizes 5-11) or from Kate Spade for $90 (available in sizes 5-11).

    4. A double-band slide sandal you ~clearly~ need in your life.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $98.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in four colors) or Walmart for $98.95 (available in sizes 6, 7, 8-9, 10 and in snakeskin, white, and pink).

    5. Or a pair of braided sandals more than 2,500 reviewers swear by for their water-resistance, comfort, and cuteness.


    Promising review: "I bought these for a trip to New Orleans, which involved lots and lots of walking in high humidity. I literally got compliments on them everywhere we went, and they were so comfortable I could wear them all day. We walked miles and miles and my feet didn't hurt (which is a small miracle given that I have arthritis). They're surprisingly durable and the woven fabric is incredibly soft. Even when my feet swelled due to the heat and humidity, they were still pretty darn comfy. I highly recommend these sandals and plan to buy a few more pairs this spring." —UrbanUtah

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in whole sizes 5-11 and in 17 colors).

    6. Some moccasins you can wear on the days when it's not super warm and sunny out, but you just can't bear to put boots on again. Plus, these feel like you're wearing slippers in public, so that's always a win in my book.,

    Promising review: "I love these shoes so much that pink is my fourth pair. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, look great for casual days, and come in such an array of colors. I bought my first pair for comfortable shoes pre-foot surgery, and I knew I hit something right when I noticed the younger girls wearing the same style. Now that the surgery is done, these are still my go-to for everyday wear. They hold up well to the elements, and I really do wear them from the end of March until it's too cold to go without socks. Such a great value, and I get so many compliments on them." —boysrus

    Get them from Amazon for $21.30+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 29 colors, with some colors also available in wide sizes).

    7. Some mid-heeled mules – watch out because Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett might try to steal these gems right off your feet.


    Get them from ASOS for $56 (available in sizes 4-11).

    8. A velcro canvas sneaker because laces are sooooo last year. Why tie your shoes when you don't have to?

    TJ Maxx

    Get them from TJ Maxx for $29.99 (available in sizes 5-12).

    9. A vintage-inspired Mary Jane that'll pair perfectly with that dress you've been saving for nice weather. It's finally time to let it out so everyone can see it in its full glory!

    Promising review: "These are very cute and super comfortable. According to my Fitbit, I walk about three to five miles a day at work, but these were just as comfortable at the end of the day as when I put them on in the morning. I will be ordering additional colors." —I. Frederick

    Get them from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 18 colors).

    10. A pair of breathable sports shoes you can wear all weekend long as you run every errand you put off during the week. That's what Saturday and Sunday are for, right?

    Promising review: "I have never been compelled to write a review, but these shoes are soooo beautiful!!! I got the pink and gold and they are comfy and pretty. I cannot keep count on the total strangers on the street stopping me and saying how much they love my shoes and asking me where I got them!!! This price is amazing, and I truly can say I got bang for my buck! True to size, I'm an 8 and ordered the 8 and they fit perfect." —Dora M.

    Get them from Amazon for $16.19+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 16 colors and styles).

    12. An open toe cut out bootie to show off the cute pedicure you DESPERATELY needed after months of your toes being covered.


    Promising review: "I love these shoes. I live in a warm climate and was looking for a style that would transition from early spring to summer and into fall. These are perfect. They've very well-made and comfortable. They'll go with everything from jeans to more dressy clothes." —Dee

    Get them from Amazon for $33+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in four colors).

    13. Scalloped sandals with a heel small enough that you'll feel a little boost of confidence but won't have to worry about your feet hurting in a matter of hours.


    Promising review: "I love, love, love these shoes. The block heel is very comfortable, and the front strap is loose enough for my wide feet. The scalloped straps don't dig into your foot. They do run a bit big (I'm usually between a nine and a nine and a half, and the nine here was perfect). I was skeptical about the material, but they are soft and smooth like real suede." —I. Koehncke

    Get them from Amazon for $32+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in seven colors).

    Promising review: "These are so cute! They are going to be great this spring! They fit perfectly and are true to size. They don’t offer a ton of support, so I wouldn’t wear them when I have a lot of walking to do." —LL Ham

    Get them from Amazon for $17.69+ (available in sizes 6-11).

    16. A lightweight slip-on sneaker with a breathable knit so you don't get stuck with sweaty feet (one of the worst feelings ever).

    Get them from Amazon for $24.96+ (available in whole sizes 5-11 and in six colors) or from Roxy for $36 (available in sizes 5-11 and in seven colors).

    18. A pair of rain boots you'll glitterally fall in love with the moment you see them. I mean, come on, have you seen cuter rain boots ever!?!


    Promising review: "These boots are amazing. I've gotten quite a few compliments while wearing them. I linger between an 8 and a 9, so I got a 9 and feel that was a good choice. There's some extra room, so I can wear thicker socks without having my feet feel squished. I've only worn them with jeans so far, so no reviews on if they rub against your bare leg." —catherine

    Get them from ModCloth for $39 (available in sizes 6–10).

    19. A cut out ankle boot you'll wear so much, people may be shocked when they see you without them.


    Promising review: "I love, love these shoes. They’re comfortable and stylish. I wear them with my skinny jeans, wide leg ankle length pants, gauchos, and long dresses. They go well with everything. I'm very pleased. I like the ventilation sensation offered by the cut-out pattern too! :) I ordered 1/2 size up from my normal size, and they fit nicely." —Avril Lucie

    20. A espadrilles that'll ~wrap~ up any doubt you had when it comes to trying this trend. It's here, and your style will never be the same.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect shoe for spring and summer! I walk two miles to and from work everyday, and these are the most comfortable shoes I own for that walk, even more comfortable than sandals. The day I got them I wore them to work and they didn't give me blisters. I don't have any other shoes that don't require any break-in time! Seriously, these shoes are amazing. They're so worth your money for a slight heel that can be worn for hours without causing any pain!" —cookie barber

    Get them from Amazon for $74.95+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 22 colors and styles).

    21. Some yellow pumps to celebrate the fact that the sun is out again *and* the fact that it's out past 6 p.m. Thanks, sun, you're the true hero.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $159.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in 19 colors and prints).

    24. A pair of heeled sandals specifically designed for comfort so you'll be able to wear these to work and then out to happy hour with your friends. Yes, those friends you've been cancelling plans with for months because it's been too cold!


    Get them from Vionic for $139.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in four colors).

    25. A cut out ballet flat with a sweet rose design to help your outfit truly ~bloom~.


    Promising review: "I love these. They're true to size, at least for me. I teach 8th grade and am on my feet most of the day; these don't have the most support, but they work just fine. I will definitely look into them again when the first pair is finished, or I'm just now looking at the gold..." —KSummers

    28. Some canvas slip-ons great for people with wide feet – you deserve pretty shoes, too!


    Promising review: "I was so excited to try these shoes! I am a 7 and only half sizes were available. I first ordered the 7.5, and they were way too big. I reordered the 6.5, and they fit great! I noted them as a little big since the 6.5 fit my normal size 7 foot just fine. They are soft on the inside with lots of cushion in the soul. They're the perfect transition shoe for spring!" —Book Reviewer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-9.5 and in five colors).

    29. A woven block heel shoe that I can't lie-lac about, I'll be dreaming about these beauties for a LONG time.


    My actual reaction to seeing these: 😍

    Get them from Toms for $99.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in cream and lilac).

    30. A pair of gladiator sandals you don't even have to fight in an epic battle to wear.

    Promising review: "Wow! These are amazing! I ordered a pair and was surprised that not only do they fit perfectly, they were broken in and ready to go within 15 minutes! I bought them for an upcoming summer trip to Rome because I wanted something that had enough style to them while being comfortable to walk in and that would be versatile enough to wear with shorts, skirts or a sundress. I ended up liking them so much, I'm now getting a beige color to wear this spring and summer. So happy I found these!" —firstcrush

Even the first time I wore them, I did not get blisters or rubbed spots, like most new shoes do. These are beautiful and you won't find anything at this price that's comparable. The quality is noticeable." —clynch
