I Want So Many Pairs of Shoes Right Now—Here Are My Picks, Starting at $40

Fun fact about me (even if it’s not all that unique): I really love shoes. And when new pairs begin arriving for the forthcoming season, I find myself browsing them on a daily basis. As you know, the forthcoming season is spring, and seeing that it’s now officially February, it’s the perfect time to at least start thinking about which pairs you’ll want to be wearing come May (or sooner, hopefully). 

I spent several hours compiling a list of new shoes that I’m considering adding to my collection (although I regretfully can’t have them all, so I must narrow it down drastically). I that realize when you don’t shop for a living, it can be a bit overwhelming to know what’s worth buying for the new season, so I’m sharing my list of new shoes with you. Narrowing it down from there is up to you though. Scroll to spring into shoe shopping (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

Nordstrom really nailed it with these trendy mules.

I like that the platform on these isn’t too intense.

Given Gia Borghini’s track record, these are definitely going to be It shoes, and I think I need them.

These look like something Audrey Hepburn might’ve worn.

Honestly, who wouldn’t want these?

I’d wear these with socks now and without in a few months.

I love how simple and streamlined these rain (or shine) boots are.

I think about these sparkly slingbacks a lot.

Based on how comfortable On’s athletic sneakers are, I’m sure these are a treat.

I’m usually not into patent leather but these are very chic.

These are perhaps the prettiest shoes I’ve seen yet this year.

Are you as intrigued by these as I am?

Zoom in to see the cute herringbone detail.

These are a vibe.

I own these in cream and they’re so perfect, I think I may need them in black too.

These are giving me ’80s (but wearable).

I’ve wanted these shoes for awhile now, especially since seeing this spring-friendly navy pair.

I’m not usually big on pink sneakers, but I’m oddly drawn to these.

These are sure to go with every spring outfit.

Have I been brainwashed or something or are these really great?

The Row is so good at making simple styles look incredibly chic.
