“Spring in New York usually comes at the tail end of the season and lasts for maybe a week, if we’re lucky. These fishnet ballet flats can be worn with my winter black hosiery or black socks — and come warmer weather, just bare!” - Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR

Jil Sander
Leather Ballet Flats
“The pointed toe, the soft pink hue that reads neutral — everything about this sweet ballet flat screams spring staple for me. I also love its versatility, as it pairs nicely with dresses, denim, and even cozy leisurewear.” - Angela Melero, executive editor, TZR

"I've been coveting a pair of Church's loafers for over a decade, which really is a testament to how classic they are. This spring, I’m taking the plunge. I'll be using them as I transition shirt dresses and denim skirts into warm — but not sandal warm — weather." - Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

"I want a spring flat that doesn't look like a ballerina and found the perfect option from HEREU. The crinkly, glossy lambskin gives the shoe texture and interest!" — Marina Liao, senior fashion news editor, TZR

Mary-Jane Pointe Shoe
“While I won't partake in wearing leg warmers, I plan on embracing the Balletcore trend with these satin Mary Jane flats – if I'm able to get a pair before they sell out again. The soft blush satin is the perfect shade for spring's transitional weather.” - Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

"While I'm dying to give in to the romance (and twee nostalgia) of classic ballet flats, my size 10 feet require something a little less delicate. I'm in love with these Hot Topic-ified, buckle-covered GANNI flats, the perfect combination of elegance and edge." - Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR

Simon Miller
Grip Bubble Clog
“Simon Miller’s shoes are my *absolute* favorites, and its Grip Bubble Clog is at the top of my wishlist. I’d wear these babies with slouchy jeans and fun socks. I love the yellow and pink styles — but the latter feels more my sartorial speed.” - Kelsey Stewart, associate fashion editor, TZR

“I'm fully obsessed with red accessories at the moment, and these cherry red ballet flats will definitely be my It-shoe for spring. I see myself diving head first into this trend by pairing them with bright red tights.” - Maggie Haddad, senior social media strategist, TZR

The Demi
“If I'm wearing flats, they’re going to be classic ballerinas. They're effortless, elegant, and comfortable. This beautiful shade of blue feels very spring-forward. It’s a more unexpected choice, but still neutral enough to pair with everyday outfits.” - Rebecca Iloulian, director, newsletter revenue and marketing, BDG

Maison Margiela
Tabi Ballerinas
“I didn't expect to find myself interested in flats again but these are definitely on my radar. The pale blue has the spirit of a neutral but still pops! They're way outside of my price range but with Century 21 making a comeback, I'm hoping to stumble on an unreal deal.” - Samantha Scott, newsletter editor + strategist, BDG
