Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of flatform wingtips with a surprisingly lightweight sole so you can freely skip through the daffodils.


    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5–9 and four colors).

    Promising review: "These shoes are sweet and every time I wear them I get compliments! They're well built and I like that the white sole is a material dirt or scuffs can be wiped off of. The burgundy is a beautiful color, too!" —Enabling Grace

    2. Vegan suede T-strap flats that'll go with basically everything in your closet — to a *T*. So much so, you just might have to stock up on every color.


    Get them from ModCloth for $45 (available in sizes 6–11, regular and wide, and eight colors, patterns, and fabrics).

    Promising review: "I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shoes! Super cute and comfortable. Dressy or casual: they work for both! I seriously may get more colors." —jdm

    3. Minnetonka moccs crafted in a super pliable suede that'll stretch to fit your feet comfortably — aka the end of sock season does NOT mean the beginning of blister season.

    Get them from Amazon for $20.49+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 29 colors).

    Promising review: "I am somewhat of a Minnetonka mocc connoisseur, I have at least 10 pairs. I still have and wear the first pair I bought four years ago. They are durable and go with many outfits from jeans to dresses. Over time as your moccs stretch out enough to fit an insole you might think about adding some arch support but I travel in these moccs and can walk 10+ miles a day, no problem without insoles. I wear them sans socks too. I usually spray fresh moccs with some kind of water protectant when I first get them and they hold up a long time and I live in wet Seattle." —KT Lag

    4. A pair of caged ankle booties for when you want to try out the western trend, but need to feel the breeze on your feet.

    Forever 21

    Reviewers note to order a half size down!

    Get them from Forever 21 for $34.90 (available in sizes 5.5–10).

    5. A pair of budget-friendly ballet flats with elastic wrapping around the ankle for a double whammy of 1. extra ballerina pizzaz and 2. security so these bbs never slip off accidentally., Amazon

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

    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE SHOES! I have kind of an usual foot shape, which doesn’t allow for me to wear flats. Every pair I’ve ever worn in my whole life either tears up my toes, heels, or the balls of my feet — and sometimes cut the skin on top of my feet! But these bad boys are some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn! The elastic cross straps let me bend and twist every which way while staying right on my foot. The rounded toe is super super comfy, and seems like it would have room for even the widest of feet. And the suede is suuuper soft. I love them so much, I think I’ll order more colors!" —Emmie Wellems

    Check out a BuzzFeed writer's review of these flats for all the deets!

    6. A pair of colorful Birkenstocks you can wear — dare I say it? — with socks before it gets sweltering out.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $39.95 (available in sizes 5–10.5 and seven colors).

    Promising review: "I can't say enough about these shoes, I have them now in black and pink. They are so comfortable, and they are amazing in the summer for the pool, and for every day when we are 115 degrees with monsoons, they hold up amazingly." —SBolo

    7. A pair of rain "boots" masquerading as high-top sneakers so you can jump joyously into puddles without feeling like you're stuck in dreary winter.


    They're available in low-top sneaks too if you're not worried about ankle coverage.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and 13 colors and syles).

    Promising review: "I bought these for an event, when the weather report kept saying it was going to rain the whole time. Rain boots would have been great, because the mud was DEEP, but at the end of the day, the shoes never got stuck in the mud, and my socks were dry. They are also super cute, which is a bonus. Everyone thought I was crazy and just wearing regular shoes :)." —Sarah Joy

    8. Perforated, peep-toe booties for the ideal transition item to unite your winter and spring wardrobes — and to let your piggies feel the breeze.


    Get them from Walmart for $38 (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    Promising review: "Super adorable! And super comfortable! I was afraid my feet would slide while walking and cause rubbing on my toes but that is not the case with these! They are super soft inside and they do not slide while walking." —Cristi

    9. Slip-on knit sneaks that'll let you be ~flexible~ enough to stay comfy *and* stylish at the same time. Miracles happen, once in a while.


    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–11 and 23 colors and styles, both with and without laces).

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best pair of sneakers I’ve ever owned. I am 39 and a lunch lady, on my achy feet for every minute of my workday, 7:30a-2p. These are the most comfortable shoes I think I’ve ever owned. They actually help my feet and whole body! I am able to do things after work instead of collapse in pain once I get home. I don’t care if they aren’t the most long-lasting shoe (though after over a week of all-day wear, they still look like new), I will be happy to keep repurchasing. They are very cute too, and look great with yoga pants and jeans, and I’m sure everything else I wear that is casual (basically my whole wardrobe). I plan on buying more colors and never being without them! I am so so happy I stumbled onto these shoes." —79mommy23

    10. A pair of wide-fit, mid-height heels made in a textured faux croc to make you feel ferociously cute.


    Get them from Asos for $48 (available in sizes 5–11).

    11. Classic, lightweight Oxfords for an alternative to your boring and worn-out flats. And these are *so* versatile; you can wear with jeans, dress pants, and the flowiest of summer dresses.


    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 6–10 and five colors).

    Promising review: "These shoes are ridiculously comfortable and professional looking at work where i am always looking for something more substantial than ballet flats. Bay Area winters can be COLD and I don't always want the top of my foot exposed. These are great for a day at the office and suit my vintage wardrobe very well, while also looking great with jeans, an oxford dress shirt, and vest." —C Barrera

    12. Chunky Fila Disruptor 2 sneakers so you can walk tall and oh-so trendy just by adding these to your closet.

    Urban Outfitters

    And with the no-slip treading and cushy insoles, you'll feel like you're walking on a very secure cloud. Btw, reviewers suggest to order a half size up.

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $65 (available in sizes 5–10 and in white with red and blue detailing).

    Promising review: "I was hesitant because they are so trendy right now and for that reason I wasn't interested. I saw them in person and tried them on and did a total 180. I live in these. They're so comfortable, they go with everything, they give a little extra height and they're not overly bulky. Great shoes at a reasonable price." —sloanranger1

    13. A pair of wedge espadrilles for a comfortable and secure high-heel option even the clumsiest of walkers (🙋‍♀️) can feel confident strutting their stuff in.


    They're ~handmade~ in Spain — fancy!

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

    Promising review: "If I could give these shoes 10 stars I would. They are the most comfortable shoes I have; I can wear them all day long, to go shopping, lunch, etc. I have worn espadrilles for practically all my life in the summer time. This brand is one of the best for comfort and look. Got them in black also. Worth every penny." —Currita

    14. A pair of metallic penny loafers, because the sun is *finally* shining, and your shoes should ~reflect~ that...literally.

    J. Crew

    They're also available in four other non-metallic colors, listed separately.

    Get them from J. Crew for $158 (available in sizes 5–12).

    15. Grid-print d'orsay flats you can fold up and keep in your desk or purse and switch from cold weather shoes to these babies as the day warms up.


    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 7–9.5 and three styles).

    Promising review: "These are the best folding ballet flats I've tried. The sole is so much sturdier than other brands, so these can actually be used as outside shoes not just slippers. I also like the shape; they have pointed toes rather than the typical round, stubby toes of most ballet shoes. The fit is perfect. I ordered my regular size. Didn't flop off or slide on my heel at all. I use these to get through airport security because my heels and boots always trigger the alarms. These shoes actually fold up small enough to fit into a purse making them a perfect fall-back shoe if your feet start hurting in your high heels." —Suze

    16. Jeffrey Campbell jellies that'll bring you right back to your younger days. Get ready to head to your nearest swing set to enjoy the almost-summer breeze.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $38 (available in sizes 6–10 and three colors).

    Promising review: "These are the best! The colors are very neon on my caramel skin tone. The fit is just right. I am an 8.5 regularly and the 9 is an EXACT fit. They are comfortable and are must haves as a fashionista." —elisenicole

    17. Tassel-topped mules so you can add a little flutter to every step you take. Heading out the door is as easy as sliding these babies on.


    Get them from Amazon for $32.33 (available in sizes 5.5–10 and six colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "Love this shoe! I get more compliments on these mules than any shoe I own. Comfortable and a fashion statement. Love!" —Amazon Customer

    18. A pair of wide-fit crochet slip-ons for a springy, breezy addition to your year-around all black outfits.


    Talk about a twist on the word shoe~lace~.

    Get them from Torrid for $39.67 (available in sizes 7.5–13).

    Promising review: "After searching for a long time I finally found a pair of flats that are actually comfortable! So cute and stylish, they go with just about any outfit." —Angie Angel

    19. Retro-inspired metallic heels you can comfortably wear to every spring and summer wedding you have coming up. Sigh.


    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 13 colors).

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! Stylish yet comfortable at the same time! I love the block heel since I have trouble walking in thinner heels. And I got many compliments on them the first time I wore them out. Love the price too! I bought them in patent red and the nude color." —Shawn Radke

    20. Ruffle-strap flats for a running-out-the-door, throw-on shoe that's still on ~point~.

    21. Pearl-embellished espadrille flats so you can *weave* together the perfect "omg it finally hit 70°!" ensemble.


    Get them from Amazon for $30.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and four colors and styles).

    Promising review: "Ok for starters let me just say these are the cutest shoes ever! I got the cream but will definitely be purchasing the black as well! I had been wanting the Chanel espadrilles forever, but obviously I don’t have $700 to drop. These are the closest dupes I found! P.S. They also feel like you're walking on clouds; they are super comfy 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼" —lucinda silva

    22. A pair of incredibly lightweight mesh-knit Allbirds perfect for matching the newly-sprouting foliage appearing on all your favorite trees. Are those my allergies, or am I tearing up?


    I have the wool runners and the high-tops and they are both SO COMFY — if you don't have a pair, you're majorly missing out.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 (available in sizes 5–10 and nine colors).

    Psst! The wool runners won best mid-price casual sneakers on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    23. Floral-embroidered pumps even Miranda Priestly herself would approve of. And the pointy toe and low block heel make them basically the perfect (and walkable) shoes.


    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 22 colors and styles).

    Promising review: "Wore these to a wedding and received one compliment after another on the style and beauty of the shoes. I have wide feet and do not like to wear really high-heeled shoes any more. The wide heel gave me stability and some height. The material of the shoe stretched to my wide feet. I wore them all night, no pain. This was an amazing find especially given the price. I highly recommend!!!" —Barb

    24. Vintagey v-front heels that might get you talking in "v" alliterations all day. "Would you like to go view the vernal valley with me?"


    Get them from Everlane for $111 (originally $155; available in sizes 5–11 and four colors).

    Promising review: "Congratulations Everlane. You did it again with this perfect shoe. First, it is super comfortable, a big plus. Following that, it just plain looks good. What more can I say? It works. Out with a closet full of shoes I never wear. These work for me." —Ecjay

    25. Surprisingly inexpensive ankle-strap sandals with pearls in the heels so you can truly ~step up~ your warm weather outfits.


    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 6–11 and seven colors).

    Promising review: "Got these special for a wedding, and, I was SO glad I did. I danced all night in comfort. I even have plantar fasciitis and didn’t have any pain after wearing them all night. Even prettier in person." —Stephanie G. Richardson

    26. Peep-toe, lace up bootie sandals in the perfect grey snake print for an inexpensive and easy way to let this trend ~slither~ into your wardrobe.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–10.5 and three colors).

    Promising review: "Fits as expected with lots of room at the toes. Don’t believe for one second these aren’t comfy. I’m a hairdresser, I walk and stand over eight hours a day. These are comfortable enough that at the end of my work day I have zero discomfort or pain. I don’t typically ever wear a shoe with a heel so the fact these cause no pain, have a heel, and all of this with the fact I stand all day is awesome. Would recommend." —Ruelle

    30. Mustard-colored slingbacks that'll be the perfect condiment on your outfit sandwich.


    Get them from Mango for $59.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and in black).

    31. A pair of Gladiator-inspired sandals with EVA foam footbeds to keep your feet cushioned and happy no matter how far you roam. Traveling this spring? These deserve a place in your suitcase.


    Get them from Amazon for $64.07+ (available in sizes 5–12 and six colors).

    Promising review: "I have suffered with large flat feet my entire life. No matter what kind of shoes I've tried (many very expensive) my feet would ultimately be in pain and forget long distances. These shoes are a miracle! Not only are the really stylish, but they have arch supports, come in wide sizes and have non-slip bottoms! I love them so much I've purchased four pairs! They are like walking on air. This last week we were on vacation and tracked just under 30,000 steps on my Fitbit in one afternoon sightseeing, and my feet didn't feel a thing! Wonderful shoe!!!! So excited !" —Barb L.
