While many of us are still land-locked in our snow boots, the seasons are a-changing. Open-toe and ankle-baring season will be here before you know it, so it’s time to slide into some must have styles for spring.

As with every new season, there are lots of options. Our editors have put together their favorite 20 footwear for 2024 to share with you.

Ready to dip your toes in?


Whether flats or heels, Ballet inspired style shoes are ‘on point’ for this season.

Starting with these ‘classic with a twist’ by M. Gemi. We adore the soft Italian Nappa leather and square toe that make this shoe so comfortable and iconic in beautiful black. So what’s the ‘twist’? They’re not flat! There is a hidden 20mm wedge inside that gives you just a *chef’s kiss* of lift.

M. Gemi, The Danza in Black $248

Coming from the future to a foot near you, this surrealist interpretation of the ballet flat by Jil Sander is a piece of modern art you can wear.

Jil Sander, Plaque-Detail Pointed Ballerina Shoe $613

Another fresh take, these marvelously metallic flats by Mansur Gavriel are the perfect way to rotate in one of this season’s big trends – silver.

Mansur Gavriel, Dream Ballerina in Silver $395


The wedge heel obsession continues as we migrate from our wonderful winter wedge boots into equally exciting wedge heels for spring.

These denim blue beauties from Aerosoles are a great shoe to transition your current wardrobe into spring. The brand’s superior comfort features a cushy feel, and a solid rubber sole for navigating those sometimes slippery spring streets.

If there’s one heel that has taken the season by storm, it’s the block heel. Chunky, angled, and all out funky, no matter how you slice it, this trend is here to stay for quite a while.

With a slightly angled heel and adorable ribbon wraps, this block heel ballet shoe from Circus NY is your new perfect spring staple.

As the nostalgic Y2K hits keep coming, an interesting emerging trend is the return of the peep toe. If you’re a purist, the kitten heel is your huckleberry, but don’t knock the block heel if you’re looking for a fresh take. Either way, why not try this trend out and give your toes a little ‘peep’?

Rotate this classic beauty into your wardrobe without breaking the bank with these fab Magenta peep toes from Nina.

Nina, Contesa Wine-Crystal Satin $89

If you’re looking for height, these these nicely neutral peep-toe booties from Joie are sure to give you a little boost with their 3″ stacked heel. And of course, who can resist soft, supple suede?

Loafers are seamlessly striding from winter to spring without missing a step. And while your staple black, gray and browns will serve you well, why not upgrade your spring line with some playful power colors instead?

Classic style meets major trend with these red-hot loafers from M. Gemi. This will look amazing paired with this season’s wide leg, light denim.

M. Gemi, The Sacca Donna in Sunset Red $298

Combining the love of loafer with the block heel, Clarks’ new season adds a little snakeskin for a look that is truly unique.

Clarks, Martine Rose Loafer 2 $180

More fun with flatforms, this time mixing the elevated styling of the loafer with a sneaker-inspired sportswear feel. The result is the Bess flatform Loafer by Matisse. This shoe will look just as great (and comfortable) with your french terry sweats as they will with your office slacks.

Matisse, Bess Platform Loafer $47.50

Looks like it’s time to start booking that pedi appointment…because when it comes to straps, we’re seeing a definite ‘thin is in’ trend. Reminiscent of the naked sandal circa 2018, super strappy sandals are again having a moment. Things to look for this season are the square toe and a dash of bling.

This gorgeous silver and rhinestone strappy heel from Nina is the one-and-done wedding season shoe you need.

Nina, Rikki in Silver $119

Like the trend, but not the high heel? These gold strappy sandals from Nine West have plenty of thin strap appeal, in a flat, square toe version.

Windsor, Glam Strides Rhinestone Strap Heels $32.90


A huge trend over fall & winter, we’re loving the spring versions of the iconic mary jane. Exuberant shades and playful patterns meet chunky and block style heels.
