Share

Spring is nearly here, and with it comes the urge to bust out of our cold-weather footwear and into fresh silhouettes. This season, shoes are hitting a practical stride—from the return of the kitten heel (modernized, of course) to sensible slides and mules (though not without a twist) plus feminine-fun styles like exquisite satin and platforms. Here, your guide to shopping the season’s most prominent trends, suited for every budget.
