This time last year, we were swapping our trusty riding boots for ankle-skimming booties and ditching those old T-strap sandals for slides.

But in 2016, there’s a whole new crop of trends to look out for as weather gets sunny in the city. NYC, prepare for pom-poms.

Here are five pairs we can’t wait to get our toes into.

NY SpringShoes List1


We love a ballet flat, but this year we’re psyched to elevate the lace-up look with a pump. They’ll upgrade your work wardrobe during the week and dress up your jeans on weekends.

Get the look: Public Desire ($42); Gianvito Rossi ($665); Jimmy Choo ($950)

Bright white kicks have been gaining in popularity for a few years, but they’re about to be all over the streets of NYC this spring. (And since white sneaks get dirty fast, keep a Magic Eraser around.) 

Get the look: Topshop ($35); Adidas ($75); Anine Bing ($299)

Look, we’re not telling you to give away all of your other pairs of ankle boots--but for a warm-weather twist on the traditional booties, try these guys on for size. 

Get the look: Lucky Brand ($82); Kristin Cavallari ($149); Rag & Bone ($495)

Get ready to see tassels swinging on everything from gladiators to heeled sandals this season. (Just resist the urge to wear them with your new tassel bag or you risk looking like a dining room curtain.)

Get the look: Asos ($60); Schutz ($190); Aquazzura ($785)

This whimsical trend began in Greece--you’re sure to see these bright little puffballs adorning flats, slides and gladiators as the weather heats up.

Get the look: Percent ($99); Dimitra Fragia ($172); Sophia Webster ($650)
