Promising review: "Ordered these for a wedding I was in as a bridesmaid and I wore them all day and night.

Loved them!" —Amazon Customer

Are you there, spring? It's me.

Get them from Amazon for $16.89+. / Sizes: 5.5-11 / Available in 27 colors and styles (including lace-up versions).

Promising review: "This are a great pair of winter-to-spring transitioning shoes, but I intend to wear them now and straight through summer. They are well made and fit perfectly. The heel is a natural height and comfortable. I teach and I am on my feet 8-10 hours a day. My feet and back do not hurt after wearing these all day. The style and color are great to wear with wide-leg slacks or skinny jeans. They go dressy or casual." —Beth Keene

Promising review: " I bought these in tan and am very much regretting not getting the black too! I usually wear 6-6.5 shoes and the 6 was perfect. Comfortable, heel is nice without feeling like a flat but also adds a slight something as well. Cannot wait to wear them!" —Amanda

Printed with pretty flowers so you remember the results of rain when tromping through puddles.

Promising review: "These boots are wonderful! I have the original Hunter rain boots and Burberry rain boots... I wanted an inexpensive pair that I wouldn't mind beating up to wear on muddy trails and in shallow creeks. These boots surpassed my expectations! They are so comfortable, light weight and flexible, I love them more than my expensive rain boots! I originally ordered them in grey and after receiving them I purchased another pair in black and a grey pair for a friend. (After trying mine on she wanted a pair for herself!)" —Brit999

Promising review: "I absolutely love these booties! I didn't get them all that long ago and I've already worn them a ton of times! They go with just about anything, and because the heel isn't too high they are still really comfortable! I usually don't write reviews but these shoes are so cute and perfect especially for the price! I might even buy a second pair!" —Keilah

Because they transition perfectly from day to night.

Get them from Aldo for $31.98 (on sale from $65). / Sizes: 6.5-8.5

Promising review: "I bought these for a weekend trip to Vegas because I was looking for a cute shoe that was elegant enough for a night out without the pain of heels. I knew I would be walking up and down the strip as well as dancing at the club so comfort was a major factor. I usually can't stand more than a couple hours in flats so I was very skeptical about these, but I wore them three consecutive days and nights, and was left with no blisters at all! I'm definitely going to buy a second pair to have when these get destroyed from the many wears they'll be getting. They also are made from great materials as they survived those crazy nights with only slight scratches. They're a must buy, I highly recommend them. They went well with every outfit and I also got very many complements :)" —Selena Babeee
