Spring officially starts this weekend, so we say it’s definitely time for new spring shoes. Ease those feet out of those boots and trainers, get yourself a pedicure, and then pop them back into something lighter.
Platforms, wedges, heels, low heels, mules or flats – there’s something for everyone when it comes to new spring shoes. And who doesn’t love a pair of new shoes? Any excuse we say.
Let’s start with heels. Come spring, come weddings, and you will need new spring shoes for your friend’s big day, agreed? The stores are full of bold colours, with fringes, ties, prints, straps, and studs. There are so many styles to choose from, to fit with whatever trend you’re rocking this spring.

If heels are too much, maybe wedges are more your thing? They fit perfectly into the 1970s trend that’s still with us, and are brilliant holiday shoes. Wedges are also fab with tights, and under maxi dresses, so the perfect new spring shoes when the weather isn’t that spring-like yet.

Bringing things back down to the ground a little bit, low heels are great for everyday wear, or if you just can’t do heels any more. Courts or sandals, clogs or block heels, just keep these new spring shoes on the down low.

And if you want to feel the terra firma beneath your feet, then chose some flats. Flats don’t have to be boring, or trainers. Try pumps, sandals, loafers or brogues. Play with colour, pattern and finish to brighten up those flats. We love daytime metallics.
