There’s no easier way to put your best foot forward this spring than with a pair of brand new shoes. Yes, your closet of shoes could probably be featured on an episode of Hoarder’s, and rivals the backroom where the store associate goes before magically bringing back your brand new pair. That said, you literally have nothing to wear this spring. We all know shoes are important because if they helped Cinderella bag a Prince the least they could do is find you a guy who will buy you brunch. Let us help you out with all the right styles. You’re welcome.
Ankle Strap Heels
Ankle strap heels are the signature shoe of Bad Gal RiRi and I have never not seen her prancing around in them. Maybe this is just Riri’s really chic ankle bracelet for all the weed she is smoking?! Strap into spring by pairing this girly shoe with a mini or even a boyfriend jeans and a crop.
Ever since Kanye made Kim cut out all her slutty bodycon dresses from her wardrobe she’s trying to get her fix any way she can. Enter these laced up heels, clinging tight to your foot and showing just the perfect amount of skin. Pair it with tight clothing to match, these are perfect for going out or just going to meet that bro with the foot fetish.
Flatform sandals: KG Kurt Geiger Madrid Flatform Sandals
Throw out those hidden-heel sneakers because (1) they make me want to vom and (2) you no longer have to be ashamed of the fact that you’re packing some extra height. These platform sandals and sneakers are the perfect casual option with some bite to it for Spring. Wear them with a romper like Riri or a short sundress like Cara D.
THIS IS SPARTA
Money to spend? Try: Valentino Rockstud Tall Gladiator Sandals

Any shoe that let’s you imagine you look like this when you wear them is always a trend in my book.
I hate the term mule unless the word Moscow is in front of it. However, we are going to give these trendy shoes the pass. Although they won’t get you drunk, looking chic is a close second. These look best paired with tight fitting pants like Chrissy or even a flowy ’70s spring dress.
This is a bad betch shoe. The type of shoe that looks great propped up on your desk when your boss walks by and asks you to stop watching Netflix. As if.
North West wore espadrilles, so I wore espadrilles. These cute, casual, canvas flats are the best shoe to pair with literally everything. They’re the pair of shoes you’ll wear out to brunch, hopping down to the bodega, or holding hands with Kim and Kanye while they fly you around the world and shower you with gifts (in my dreams).
You can make an in-store purchase of North’s flats at the Chanel store. For now, try these similar looks:
For all my shorties, add some height with a heel.
BOOTIE, BOOTIE, BOOTIE
Some people have booties, like Kim Kardashian, and far-off admirers like Kendall Jenner have, well, booties. While we can’t all have an ass gifted by the world’s most talented plastic surgeon and squat instructor, booties of all shapes and sizes are trending strong for spring. 2014 might have been the year of the ass, but 2015 is the year of the bootie.
