Spring downtime calls for light, casual shoes that can handle the various new occasions that come with the warmer months. Our suggestion? Slipping in to something more comfortable and carefree, like a pair of slip-on sneakers. The right pair is affordable, versatile, and easy to dress up when the dress code permits (you know, for that mid-May outdoor wedding). 

Make room for a pair in your shoe rotation, especially if said pair is from our list of the nine below—all of which feature another versatile trend we endorse: two-toned black and white. If you're feeling adventurous, opt for a bold graphic pattern. Add extra interest with a textured suede or canvas. But whatever you do, never wear socks. If shoes rub your feet the wrong way, pick up a Band-Aid friction block stick to protect your skin.
