Here at FN, we’re dedicated to showcasing the hottest footwear styles — whether that means scouring industry trade shows and catwalks to see what looks will be huge for the next season, meticulously keeping tabs on the latest celebrity trends or getting exclusive access to showrooms to find that ultra-comfortable pair of shoes you’ll practically want to live in.
Last season, we rounded up a range of must-have footwear for men and women. And now, we’re back with our top picks for spring. First up? Women’s sandals. All the items originally appeared in our Sept. 19, 2018 print issue and were selected as some of the most trend-driven and comfortable looks to hit shelves this season. Plus, there’s something here for everyone, as the shoes fit a range of occasions and budget.
Cole Haan G.OS Avani City Sandal
This snake-embossed style from Cole Haan is more than just a pretty exterior. It’s equipped with the brand’s Grand.ØS technology, making it ultra-lightweight, flexible and plush thanks to special cushioning. It also features a sturdy block heel and ankle straps for added support.
Chloe Gosselin Celeste Sandals
This barely-there stiletto, featuring eye-catching bamboo accents, will make your legs look miles long.
Sorel Ella Slide Sandal
A ground-level sole makes this slide super-easy to wear, while a woven vamp offers up cool retro vibes.
Chocolat Blu Wapi Wedge Sandal
Go for a Canadian Tuxedo look by pairing jeans with these denim-clad wedges set on a high cork platform.
Giuseppe Zanotti Satin Flower High Sandals
If you’re willing to splurge on your next spring shoe, these Guiseppe Zanotti stilettos are a supremely elegant pick. Featuring a bold flower applique at the heel and sleek satin finish, they’re perfect for any spring wedding on your calendar — or simply channeling Carrie Bradshaw.
Days spent on your feet are made easy with the Naot Vixen, complete with a cushioned cork footbed and convenient hook and loop straps done in vibrant colors.
Jerusalem Bashan Sandals
Subtle details elevate this classic slide, including side cutouts along the wide leather vamp and contrast stitching on the sole.
Mango See-Through Heel Sandals
Geometric heels are having a huge moment right now. This style adopts the trend with a clear, cylinder-shape heel, and adds on thin ankle ties for a particularly svelte effect.
Asos New Look Square Toe Mule
Another huge silhouette for spring? Square-toed shoes. Asos offers a great option in this strappy metallic mule, ideal for date night or amping up everyday jeans and tee combos.
Schutz Electra Platform Wedge Sandal
A fun take on the traditional espadrille, this open-toed wedge features lace-up ankle ties and bold contrast stitching along the heel and front strap.
Jewel Badgley Mischka Devonee Sequin Sandal
Colorful sequins and a semi-embellished heel offer a tasteful dose of shine in this Jewel Badgley Mischka sandal.
