Winter is finally starting to thaw away, with brighter evenings and warmer temps creeping in and bringing with them a lift in mood. But while we get carried away with how much more time we have to be social, it can be easy to forget to upgrade your footwear rotation. Luckily, SSENSE is here to remind us. Spring footwear is on the cards, and it means that some changes are in order.

We were big on boots this winter, and when we weren’t wearing boots, we stuck to tried-and-tested GORE-TEX uppers and rugged sneakers almost always in black colorways. But, with less severe weather settling in, look to spring footwear with brighter colors and lighter builds. Sure, there might be a pesky shower here and there, but on the whole, your Vibram soles can have a break in favor of lightweight sneakers from Gucci, Casablanca, and others.

Alongside a renewed look at sneakers, we’re translating our wintertime love for boots into a focus on leather shoes within our spring footwear rotation. While we didn’t want to traipse through snow in mules or loafers, it didn’t mean our love for them disappeared. Now, with spring here, we can let that love shine with selections from Toga Virilis, Adieu, and more.

Keep scrolling to shop the best spring footwear, from sneakers to loafers.

Spring sneakers

Of course, sneakers are our priority. Perfecting the transition is all about performing a masterful balancing act. We're talking about an equal consideration of utility and style.

Pairs like Gucci's new Run sneaker are the lightweight, summer-leaning styles we've been talking about while pairs like Boris Bidjan Saberi's Bamba 5 and New Balance's XC72 combine rugged sole units with mesh uppers and brighter colors to survive potential weather mishaps as well as fitting a new-season color palette.

Spring shoes

After fashion's love affair with boots this winter, we're finding it a little difficult to let go of the look. But it's possible to translate the look closely into the new season.

Toga Virilis' slingback loafers and Rombaut's Venom2 Loafers are bold choices stacked with attitude: at once formal and playful thanks to their silver-tone detailing. But considering the brighter weather, you might prefer to opt for something of a lighter hue for more styling potential: Vinny's furry loafers and Adieu's Type 175 Oxfords are the MVPs in this category.
