Mango, H&M, and Zara Have Gorgeous Shoes Right Now—30 Pairs You Need to See

If there's something I can always be talked into, it's buying new shoes. Unlike splurge-worthy bags or classic, everyday basics, I see my shoes more akin to an outfit topper rather than an accessory: I'm constantly buying new pairs, both minimalist and statement styles, to incorporate into all of my spring outfits. Given how often I'm shopping for shoes, I know my way around a good deal or two, and after spending hours on Zara, Mango, and H&M, I stumbled upon the best low-cost, high-joy stylish options and affordable designer alts that might be the best buys of the season, if I do say so myself. Plus, they're all under $150. Score.

Below, I've gathered all of the can't-miss shoes you need to be adding to cart ahead of spring from Zara, Mango, and H&M before they sell out as soon as the weather gets warmer. From European-inspired woven sandals to runway-esque pierced shoes, you need to get your eyes on these pairs, immediately.

I was about to spend $600 on a pair of designer mules until I saw these stylish alts for a fraction of the price.

Yes please!

I've never seen a satin ballet flat I didn't like.

Perfect for spring.

I'm going to wear fisherman sandals non-stop as soon as the weather gets warmer.


No thoughts, just these jaw-dropping mesh flats.

Another pair of mesh flats to ease your fears about this controversial shoe trend not being chic enough. In my opinion, they're simply too good to pass up.


These minimalist kitten pumps give me major Prada vibes for a fraction of the budget.

Can't you tell I have an obsession with Mary Janes and ballet flats?

I'm heading out on vacation next month and I'm already adding dozens of sandals to my cart— this chunky pair is no exception.

Not a want, but a need.

Mark my words: jelly sandals will be everywhere next month thanks to their retro, nostalgic feel.


I did a double-take after I saw how well-priced these are.

If you're only going to have one pair of flat black slides in your closet, let it be this pair.

Say yes to these platforms as well.

Sofia Richie-Grainge would approve.

Okay H&M, I see you!

Simply stunning.
