Spring’s Best Shoe Trends

We like to think of Spring as the most appropriate time to invest in new shoes. You’ve got your pick of both open-toed styles and boots you’ll probably end up wearing year round. Not to mention, there’s a feel-good vibe in the warm air that should inspire you to create outfits with a little more flavor. And we happen to believe the foundation of an eye-catching look starts with solid footwear.

To encourage a closet refresh, we’ve curated a list of the season’s biggest shoe trends, all of which are surely bolder than the ones you’ve tried before. Scroll through a wide range of options, or jump straight ahead to the silhouette you’re searching for.

Rounded Heels

There is just something about geometrically shaped heels that gets our blood boiling and seeing the spring 2017 footwear trends including the circular designs is certainly pleasantly surprising.

Sneakers

You could say sneakers have replaced high heels, they are having a moment!

Open Back Footwear

Open back footwear is totally in and we are not just talking mules either.

Ultra Platforms

Stand tall in over-the-top platform sandals this season. Pair them with your Summer dress or jeans and a tee for an instant standout look.

Slider Comfort Fantasy

Flip-flops were once a huge thing on the streets, particularly in the ‘90s. Now, we have some funky sliders appearing instead, something we noticed last spring as well. They are flats with a laid back presentation.

KLIK Footwear was born when shoe experts and long-time friends, Nancy Olicker and Amy Sprung first met.

As two motivated, busy, self-proclaimed fashionistas, they needed a comfortable shoe that could be worn all day long, without having to sacrifice style. But it didn’t exist. KLIK Footwear combines chic design and classic style with comfort materials. They’ve created the fashion-forward comfort shoe.
