5 Spring Flats We Love

BY: Rachel Matuch |Dec 11, 2018

There’s nothing that will make your feet feel as free as ditching snow-weathered, mud-spattered boots for an airy pair of flats. And after a winter spent tugging, zipping, and lacing, it's heavenly to slip flats on and go. We rounded up some of our favorite new pairs for spring.

Bayley Twist Flat: Payless, $12–$16.99bayley2.jpg

This basic spring flat from Payless comes in a variety of shades. We love the chambray for its breezy versatility, but there’s a very pretty spring floral, too.

The twist design adds eye-catching detail that’s understated enough for everyday wear. The price can't be beat, and reviewers have been giving it high marks, too.


Aldo Laforte Flats: Aldo, $34.98 (originally $50)

Dramatic colorblocking and bold black lines give these Aldo flats a pop art vibe that’s subtle enough for the office, but still makes a fun statement. There's also a cobalt blue option available.

Sperry Top-Sider Miramar Grosgrain Stripe Flat

Miramar Grosgrain Stripe Flat: Sperry, $69.99 (originally $90)

The classic smoking slipper gets a breath of fresh sea air with nautically inspired navy-and-white stripes. The rubber outsole is designed to grip the ground whether it’s wet or dry (as you should expect from Sperry). Create a color contrast with skinny slacks in bright coral, or tuck a crisp white shirt into a navy A-line skirt for a seaworthy style that doesn't go overboard.

TOMS Fiesta Flats

Fiesta Suede Perforated Jutti Flats: TOMS, $89

Cutouts give these flats an airy vibe and let your foot breathe. We love the “Fiesta Red” color for a bright pop in spring outfits (maybe pulling out the red in a floral print?).

We'll splurge on TOMS for two reasons. First, the quality is worthwhile. More importantly, your purchase means someone in need gets a pair. (TOMS also often has promo codes for discounts, so check out our TOMS coupons page before you shop.)

Clarks Lockney Hot spring flats


Lockney Hot Flats: Clarks, $79.99 (originally $110)

The Clarks Lockney Hot flats are available in Honey Leather, a buttery shade of deep daffodil. Cutouts add a special touch to the ballet flat style. Like most Clarks shoes, these are made for comfortable wear, too.
