When it comes to spring shopping, a shiny new pair of shoes is usually first on our list. Maybe it's the fact that the best pairs have a high risk of selling out early in the season, or maybe it's that obtaining the perfect pair of shoes kick-starts the rest of our spring shopping list, since our initial outfit planning will surely revolve around that special pair. Whatever the reason, there are a slew of lovely options on the market already, but these are the ones we're most looking forward to wearing.

“These shoes are the life of the party, and I'm RSVPing. The color palette is so wild, I think they'll weirdly go with everything.” — Kat Collings
“I love how effortlessly cool these vegan patent leather slides are. They'll complement everything from a romantic floral frock to a lived-in pair of vintage Levi's.” — Nicole Kliest
“If there's one pair of shoes I splurge on this spring, it will 100 percent be these Gucci crossover sandals. Though the print is unique, there's something about it that still feels neutral and totally wearable to me.” — Michelle Scanga
“I love everything about these Derek Lam booties— from the fact that they're lace-up to the heel height to the buckle in the front that seems to serve no functional purpose yet makes them just look so cool.” — Nicole Akhtarzad
“I love these Mansur Gavriel mules. The color will go with most of my spring wardrobe and the low heel makes them extremely versatile. I can't wait to flaunt them!” — Lauren Eggertsen
“No, I'm not personally going to wear these. Unfortunately, there's no way I'd be able to squeeze them onto my man feet. But they are one of my favorite shoe silhouettes of the season for all of you ladies out there. The lace-up silhouette is classic, and the grommet detail gives it that of-the-moment twist.” — Bobby Schuessler
“These look like a cool grown-up version of something I would’ve worn in high school, and that makes me happy. I like for the shoes that I splurge on to have the ability to be dressed up or down, and these platforms fit the bill.” — Allyson Payer
“I'm getting married in Mexico this spring, and I've been shopping like a madwoman for the trip! These bright and playful sandals are perfect for sunset cocktails on the beach.” — Jessica Baker
“These Dear Frances shoes are on my dream wish list. Mules are obviously a big trend for spring, but I particularly love these because of the fresh white hue and the cool mixed-material look with leather, wood, and perspex." — Erin Fitzpatrick
“I'm currently craving Esquivel's double-monk-strap mules. The color is just right for spring, and they manage to bring together the season's trends while still feeling sleek and minimal.” — Aemilia Madden
