    2. A wear-everywhere pair of of strappy flats so comfy, they'll put a spring in your step.,

    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 β€” and yes, I've even worn them in the rain and they're still doing just fine. *skips off into the distance*" β€”Sarah Han (Read Sarah's full review here.)

    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." β€”UrbanUtah

    10. Comfy knit sneaks woven with metallic thread for when you wanna keep it casual but still look cute.,

    13. Vegan suede sandals with scalloped straps sure to ~wiggle~ their way into your heart.

    Plus, they zip up in the back so you'll never have to futz with an annoying buckle πŸ™Œ.

    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." β€”I. Koehncke

    18. Cool stacked heel babies that basically look like your favorite sandals and your favorite booties merged to form one glorious pair.

    Promising review: "I am in love with these shoes. They're classy and so stylish. I had to buy more than one pair, because they look so cute with so many outfits and I needed a couple more colors to go with everything. They fit perfectly and are true to size." β€”ZoesLove
