These Are the Shoes to Wear With Your Jeans This Spring

No matter how hard we may try to think outside the box, it’s likely (in any season) that a good portion of our outfits will end up involving jeans. At least mine do, and I don’t mind it because, well, I love them, and I feel like most people reading this probably do, too. I mean, who doesn't?

With this in mind, I figured we could all use a little lesson in the best footwear to pair with our beloved denim for spring. After all, a little update never hurt anybody. From flat sandals to heels, below, I’ve compiled the five must-have shoe categories for a functional and forward-feeling wardrobe. Some of them are on my wish list, others in my cart, and perhaps one or two have already made their way into my closet. To see and shop all the shoe styles that made the cut, just keep scrolling.

Loafers

This grandma-inspired style might be my favorite.

Heeled Mules

I love how these make a subtle statement thanks to the woven detail.

Strappy Sandals

These comfortable heels will become so useful.

Thong Sandals

This color will be surprisingly easy to match.

The perfect heel height for wearing anywhere.

Flat Slides

Who said flat sandals have to be boring?

Fancy-feeling satin is always a good idea.
