Sporty Sandals

The more it looks like it would stay on during a whitewater rafting excursion, the more on-trend it is. But it’s more versatile than you think, especially in a neutral shade.

Teva ($85)



Even if you live and die by your all-black wardrobe, Day-Glo hues are huge this season, and a little accent on an otherwise clear pump is a great way to dip your toe (sorry) into the trend.

Schutz ($155)

Saks Fifth Avenue

Retro Colorblock Sneakers

Throwback joggers in a pastel palette conveniently coordinate with all those cherry blossom pics you’re about to take.

Veja ($150)

Mary Janes

ICYMI, the ’90s silhouette is back and better than ever. Think of these as the 2019 version of the ballet flat (even if there’s a mini heel, as the case may be).

Spherical Heels

Neutral shoes are a necessity, but they have a tendency to disappear into your outfit. Not so with these elegant, sculptural mules.

Cult Gaia ($320)



Primal patterns are nothing new on boots or flats, but our favorite way to wear them right now is on skater-esque lace-ups or chunky dad sneaks.

Golden Goose ($600)
