4 Shoe Trends You’re About to Spot Everywhere This Spring

A new season means a new flock of spring footwear. But not all styles are created equal. We turned to four fashion-inspo pros to showcase our favorite spring shoe trends for this year and exactly how to wear them. Psst, you can score them all at Kenneth Cole.

Jules Jacobson

Embellished Pumps

First things first: Note the rock-star studs against the ladylike D’Orsay silhouette. Second, take note of how style blogger Jules Jacobson pairs them with a masculine blazer, T-shirt and jeans. The way she plays with opposing styles is 50 percent of the fun of this shoe. The other 50 percent? The fact that it’s made using Kenneth Cole’s Rebound System, meaning it’s got super-comfortable cushioning at key points of your foot and a rubber-injected sole for maximum walkability.

Flaunt and Center

White Mules

Consider them spring’s iteration of white winter booties. This crisp color is here to stay, and we’re loving the fresh slip-on shape and edgy heel. Use this pair to add a bit of flair to a tonal outfit like Tiffany Jais of Flaunt and Center. Notice how they punch up her outfit while still keeping it neutral and streamlined.

Mireya Rios

Pointed-toe Slingbacks

Flat, kitten, block or stiletto—whatever heel you prefer, a slingback with a pointed toe should be a closet staple. Fashion influencer Mireya Rios makes a perfect case for why this trend is so chic. Her nude pair adds length to her legs, and the strap across the back of her heel makes these shoes suitable for nearly any spring-weather scenario.

The Luxi Look

Chunky Platform Sneakers

You didn’t think we were only favoring heels this spring, did you? Not to worry, we’re still obsessing over sneaks. This season we’re on board with the drama of a platform sole and exaggerated lines, like the pair above. We suggest taking a cue from Amy Zhan of The Luxi Look and  and pairing them with ruffles and sheer fabrics to ground an otherwise feminine outfit. It’s all about balance, people.
