1 week ago 30

Because spring cleaning is for making room for new shoes, duh.

Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

1. A pair of platform Crocs that are literally the comfiest things you will ever put on your feet. I have two pairs, and I wear them pretty much every day because they go with everything. If you want your feet to look as good as they feel, these shoes are for you.

Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in sizes 4–15 and in 15 colors).

2. A pair of these platform cork mules for making you look straight out of the Woodstock Festival in 1969 (nice). Perfect for dressing up with a midi skirt and a peasant blouse or dressing down with a pair of bell-bottom jeans and a tank top. How groovy!

Get it from Free People for $158 (available in sizes 6–11 and in three colors). 

3. A pair of sparkly jelly flats because the Y2K aesthetic is very in right now, and you deserve to relive some early 2000s glam. Plus, because they're rubber, they're super easy to clean, so they look fresher for longer!

Promising review: "I wish to be buried in these. These are great. Not like the terrible '90s jellies of years past. They’re adorable, fit perfectly, and can withstand a beating. They’re remarkably non-slip, too. I’ve tested the theory in the extremely greasy kitchen of the restaurant I work in. And if they get gross, just spray them down!" —Peggy

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in sizes 4.5–10 and in 17 colors).

4. A pair of slides with thick, cushioned soles that will make you feel like you are walking on clouds. You're going to want to wear these at home, running errands, and maybe even while you nap because they are that comfortable.

Promising review: "I was initially skeptical of these slides, as I'd heard so much hype about them that I thought they would be too good to be true. It's all true, though, these slides are so outrageously comfortable! I want to wear them around my house constantly as they are very supportive and feel great." —jazz mcginnis 

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 4–16 and in 16 colors) .

5. A pair of these silver metallic Mary Janes with little bows on them that will have you feeling like you're 5 years old again, dressing up like a fairy, except you're actually in your mid-20s and work in marketing.

Promising review: "Wow, I just wore these for the first time, and I could not believe how comfortable they were even after a 12-hour work day in NYC. I also got lots of compliments. I wore them with pants and no socks, but I'm sure they will also be perfect with stockings/socks and skirts in the winter. I highly recommend!" —aed2

Get it from Anthropologie for $160 (available in sizes 36–41 and in four colors).

6. A pair of Adidas Grand Court tennis shoes designed to look good with any outfit. It's always helpful to have a staple pair of shoes you can throw on and not have to think about.

Get it from Amazon for $55+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 13 colors).

7. A pair of colorful waterproof rain boots for those April showers that are supposedly going to bring May flowers. The anti-slip technology on the soles makes it so you don't have to worry as much about falling as you frolic in the puddles.

They have such a nice shape, and it holds well. I often wear these shoes for 8-10 hours at a time, and they’re very comfortable, too! I will probably purchase these ones again when the time comes for a new pair, they’re great!" —Amazon customer

Promising review: "I am very happy with my purchase!! You need these boots in your life. And they fit like a dream with the right amount of room.

Promising review: "I absolutely am in love with this sandal, and I have been receiving compliments since the first moment I put them on. High quality leather and extremely comfortable.

22. A pair of Hoka One One Clifton tennis shoes sure to convert even the staunchest cardio hater into a runner (or at least a speed walker, like me). I have horrible knee pain, but I've completed two half marathons in these shoes; they're a total game-changer. Plus, they're also super cute and great for just everyday wear.

Promising review: "Omg I love these shoes! I developed plantar fasciitis, and my heels were in terrible pain. Through research, I saw that [these] shoes were recommended by podiatrists for plantar fasciitis or after foot surgery so I thought I’d try them. These shoes are amazing! Comfortable right out of the box, no break-in period! When you wear them, it’s like your feet feel springy (if that makes sense). These are better priced and far superior to the other high-end running shoes I usually wear, and it’s a bonus that they’re cute! I’ve already recommended these to everyone I know and will continue to do so. Get these shoes; you will love them, too!" —Amazon Customer 

Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and in 16 colors).

Promising review: "The MOST adorable shoes. Super comfy and easy to walk in (no rubbing). I cannot wait to strut around in these when the weather is warmer! As someone who has bigger feet, these make me feel comfortable but also really cute." —Linds 

Get it at Target for $35 (available in sizes 5–12 and in three colors).

24. A footbed sandal reviewers say looks and feels similar in quality to Birkenstocks. The contoured footbed allows the sandal to mold to your feet, cutting down on break-in time which is the only not-so-fun part of buying new shoes.

Promising review: "These sandals are by far one of the best purchases I have made through Amazon! The quality of the ACTUAL leather is actually better than the far more expensive ones from the mall! The orthopedic comfort is extremely surprising for a cork-based sole! I will be buying these in ALL colors because they fit so well I wear them with everything! Just buy them!!" —Ashlee Hawley 

Get it from Amazon for $29.50 (available in sizes 5–12 and in five colors).

25. A classic pair of Havaianas flip flops that were a staple in every 2000s wardrobe for a reason. Getting a pedicure? Wear these. Going to the beach? Wear these. Staying up past your bedtime to watch the premiere of High School Musical 2? Wear these.

Promising review: "Still the best flip flop there is! You do not need to break them in; just slide them on and go! I love how thin they are, but still durable!" —ElenaH28

Get it from Nordstrom for $24+ (originally $30, available in sizes 5–12 and in 15 colors).

26. A pair of Crocs low wedge sandals perfect for walking around all day while still looking fashionable and put together. Just picture yourself exploring Paris sporting these bad boys, and you'll understand why you need them.


Promising review: "If you're looking for a comfortable and stylish shoe that you can wear all day long, look no further than the Women's Crocs Wedges. These shoes are perfect for the convenience and comfort of Crocs with a little extra height and style. One of the things that set these shoes apart is their wedge design, which adds a few extra inches of height without sacrificing comfort. The wedge heel is also lightweight and flexible, so you can walk and stand in these shoes for hours without any discomfort. —Jessica F.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 4–11 and in six colors).

27. And last but not least, a pair of these fun sandals with braided straps that are just as easy to toss on as slides but are slightly dressier.

Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in sizes 6–11 and in four colors).
