Spring into spring with the right shoe

By Kelsey Miller on March 30, 2015

Spring is definitely in the air. Temperatures are finally staying in the mid-60′s and for us midwesterners it feels like summer out there! Here are a few of my favorite shoes that help liven up any outfit!


My go-to shoe right now are my Birkenstocks. I was hesitant to get them for many reasons, but it is the best decision I’ve made so far! They are SO comfortable to walk in and look great with anything! Just make sure your toes are painted a nice bright color to contrast the dull browns! Check out their website here for all of the newest styles and colors! My favorite are the Arizona style!


My favorite sneaker right now are white Converse. After breaking them in, they become the perfect shoe to walk to class, explore the wilderness (of Iowa?), go downtown in, and casually study on a Sunday afternoon. Like Birkenstocks, they go with nearly everything! My favorite thing about the white Converse is the red line around the rubber. It gives a pop of color with the white and helps to break up the different shades of white! The only thing that stinks about them is that they can get pretty dirty really easily – so stay clear of the puddles!


Ankle Boots 

Ankle boots are the perfect boot to wear downtown on a chilly spring night or window shop in the mall. They are casual enough to wear with jeans, but look great with a dress. I got my favorite pair from Old Navy, but they don’t sell them anymore – so if you’re interested, I recommend looking for them sooner than later! My boots have a small heel that helps to give any outfit a little pop of glam!


Flip flops

My go to flip flops are from Old Navy. I’m talking about the super cheap and not so fashionable ones. They’re my favorites for many reasons. First, they’re cheap and come in a billion different colors. I normally stick with the black because they go with everything, but if you’re into bright colors – they have them. Second, you can do anything in them! I love to bring them camping or on other vacations because they’re lightweight and can easily get cleaned!

Hopefully one of these shoe choices stuck out to you! If not, get to the mall and start trying them on! I know I couldn’t start spring off on the right foot without them!

I am a junior at the University of Iowa. I am double majoring in Journalism and Political Science.
