Now that the days are starting to feel a little bit longer and the air is starting to feel a little warmer (okay, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves), it’s safe to say that spring is finally within reach. And with the changing of the season comes the changing of your wardrobe, which means it’s time to swap your bulky, over-worn, all-black duds for more seasonally appropriate and on-trend pieces. And while it might be a few more weeks until we can actually start to shed some layers and dress for spring, we can’t help but think ahead to all the amazing trends we’ll be wearing in the coming months—this counts for footwear, too. 

From chunky platform sandals to candy-coloured shoes, there are shoe trends that are both stylish and functional that’ll have you feeling ready for spring just by looking at them.

Ahead, discover 10 ten shoe trends that will be everywhere this spring.

The Updated Thong
Call It Spring

The Updated Thong

As soon as the warmer weather hits, everyone wants to start rocking their favourite pair of flip-flops and sandals. Luckily, the style received a much-needed revamp and is anything but touristy. We’re loving this pair from Call It Spring, which shows that less is most certainly more.

Mellow Yellow
Sorel

Mellow Yellow

While we’ve been seeing a lot of statement hues popping up so far this year, one colour range we keep seeing are warm and sunny yellows and oranges, which is the perfect indicator for the season ahead. From sneakers and flats, to chunky sandals and espadrilles, every style, including this pair from Sorel, will make you want to rock these statement hues.

Gladiator Inspired
Dr. Martens

Gladiator Inspired

Gladiator sandals are making a comeback this year as seen on the runways of Longchamp. We’re loving this edgy take on the trend from Dr. Martens, as the white colour is feminine while the bold platform shows off your attitude.

White Booties
Aldo

White Booties

One trend we’re excited to see stick around for spring is the white bootie. It gives you the chance to continue rocking your winter whites, while still embracing your spring wardrobe colour-palette. We’re digging this western-style from Aldo and can’t wait to pair it with a floral dress as soon as the warm weather hits.

Platform
Hunter Boots

Platform

Another trend that’s having a resurgence this year is the chunky ’70s-inspired platform sandal, that’s both stylish and functional. Opt for a statement pair with contrasting colours, like this platform style from Hunter.

Square Toe
Zara

Square Toe

You’ll finally be able to give your toes a break from pointy toes this spring thanks to the return of the square toe trend. Not only will they leave your toes feeling less crowded, but the on-trend look also gives off major ’90s vibes. We’ve currently got our eyes on this stunning pair from Zara.

Mules
Reformation

Mules

Mules are sticking around this year and we couldn’t be happier as the ’90s trend goes with literally everything from jeans to dresses. This spring, rather than opting for traditional white or black, try a pair in a statement colour, like this fun pair from Reformation.

All About Ankles
Nordstrom

All About Ankles

If one thing’s for certain, as soon as the warmer weather hits it’s time to swap the boots for a pair of strappy sandals. This spring, it’s all about playing up the ankle, with ankle-wrapped espadrilles, heels, and thongs gracing the runways of Valentino and Off White to name a few. If you’re looking for the perfect style to ease into this trend with, we recommend this strappy pair by Tory Burch.

$398 at Nordstrom
Loafers
Le Chateau

Loafers

If the runways of Prada, Fendi, and Lanvin are any indicator, loafers are going to have a major moment this spring. This season, keep your eyes peeled for mule, slingback, or slip-on versions of this style, like this timeless pair from Le Chateau that you’ll be wearing well into fall.

$59.95 at Le Chateau
Colourful Sneakers
Vans

Colourful Sneakers

This spring, we’re going to see less all-white trainers and more bold, colourful sneakers that are anything but ordinary. From high-contrasting hues to bright pastels, get ready to see a lot of kaleidoscope coloured sneakers this spring like the new UltraRange Exo from Vans.
