4 Comfy Shoes That Tap Into All of the Cool Spring Trends

In my mind, I'm already dressing in sky-high revenge heels and party clothes like micro minidresses and aughts-inspired fashion items. The world hasn't quite reopened, though, so my outfits haven't transitioned there yet. In reality, I'm still wearing loungewear and comfy pieces more than anything else in my closet. Among them are many of the comfortable spring shoes that have hit the market this season. The good news? The shoes are all insanely chic, so the cozy footwear doubles as a cool fashion statement.

From puffed-up sandals to clogs, there are plenty of stylish flats that you'll spot fashion people wearing. If you're not a flats person, you can opt for the rugged lug-sole boots that are bubbling up right now or a pair of the candy-colored kitten heels that seem to be everywhere this spring. Ahead, you'll find my favorite comfortable spring shoes of the season that you'll want to add to your cart right away.

What sounds better than slipping into a pair of puffy, cloud-like sandals? To me, not much. With so many cool shapes, from velcro-strap slides to thongs, you'll surely find a pair that fits into your wardrobe.

Candy-Colored Kitten Heels

If you're still easing your way back into taller shoes, kitten heels are the best place to start. With a micro-heel, they're much more comfortable than the sky-high versions you probably have sitting in your closet. This season, look out for pretty candy-colored hues.

While you might associate boots with the cold winter months, you can keep wearing them now if you opt for the canvas lug boots that are popping up all over Instagram. Finished in a range of earthy shades, these are the perfect piece to wear with anything from sweatsuits to denim.
