100 Sensational Shoes for Spring

Get Ready for the Warmer Weather with These Fresh Styles

— March 24, 2013 — Fashion
Although the weather might go from warm to freezing in a pinch, it's never too soon to start looking for fresh shoes for spring that will help liberate your soles from clunky boots and rugged designs. It's a little bit of a strange sensation when you switch from boots to shoes because the weight difference is nothing short of huge and there's a definite sense of rejuvenation.

Here, you'll find some vibrant styles that range from being great for guys and killer for girls, but there's one defining factor that brings them altogether: they're great for walking. There aren't any heels or constricting styles here because as soon as the warmer weather hits, it'll have you ready for a walk with the dog, a pint on a patio with friends and a craving to make the new season the best yet.
