Spring waits for no one. While on one hand, thank God, on the other, if you don’t get a new pair, it also means the likelihood of getting stuck on an unexpected spring day without cute shoes increases exponentially each day. The horror! Get these online right now and your future self will thank you when you don’t resurrect last year’s trends in the meantime.

Cut Out Shoes

There’s no better way for your feet to survive the heat of summer than with built-in ventilation. Luckily for all of us, shoes with cutouts are not only functional but a huge trend as well. Wear them alone in the summer and with socks and tights for spring and fall to get more wear out of them.

Miss Sixty, $92, from $155;  Nine West, $119.

Colorblock Shoes

Why stick to one color for footwear when everyone knows that more is more? The graphic colorblock shoe trend has been seen on runways and celebrities, so we think it’s time you take your shot at it. There’s no better way to step into spring than with any one of these fun options:

Opening Ceremony, $545; Nine West, $89.

Perforated Shoes

Once designated for only sportswear, perforated accessories have made a fashionable debut in a major way. It’s the perfect material for transitional seasons and a sophisticated and effortless way to add some texture and interest to your shoe collection.

Strappy sandals are a summer must, but finding comfort without sacrificing style can be a mission impossible. These are on-trend and totally comfortable too.
