Fashion editor and self-proclaimed shoe addict, definitely a dangerous combination. As a New York City resident, shoes aren’t to be taken lightly. Comfort, versatility, and quality are non-negotiables when it comes to city commuting. As someone who shops for both work and play, I have an ongoing wishlist of footwear trends and links at the ready at all times.
Since I am on my feet often, picking a comfortable silhouette is key. For spring, I’m eyeing trends that include low heels or flats like retro sneakers, slingback kitten heels, low-height thong heels, and sculptural wedges. But if I do sacrifice for a statement heel (silver heels specifically), it must involve an ankle strap and back strap for extra support.
Below I’ve highlighted my choice shoes from each of these trending categories. Let the spring shoe shopping commence.
