Experts Guide to the Best Shoes for Spring

What are Spring Shoes?

Spring shoes for women and men are those that allow for breathability and versatility while featuring the fresh and airy colors of spring.

As a transitional season between winter and summer, spring often calls for a shoe that can withstand cold and rain just as well as it can offer ventilation through warmth and sun.

Footwear that features light, breathable, or water-resistant fabrics are ideal to have on hand for spring. Think canvas or mesh sneakers, sandals, and weather-resistant leather or rubber boots.

KURU offers a lineup of versatile, season-friendly spring shoes for men and women, so you can stay prepared no matter the forecast.

"Lightweight and supportive

My first purchase was the Chicane, which is a great shoe and offers support, so I wanted to try the Quantum. The picture doesn’t do it Justice. The purple and blue shoe is beautiful on my feet. It’s lighter than the Chicane, so I like that, and it feels supportive and comfortable. I’m glad I own both kinds. I think the Quantum will be better for me in spring and summer, while the Chicane seems good for colder and wet weather. Great shoes and fit perfectly. I wear 9s and ordered 9s."

- Jen P

"Great Shoe

Have been having trouble fitting my wide feet for some time this while fits well and gives my toe the room they need. So far it’s a great product. I will let you know more after I have walked more. Camino is planned for the spring."

With a versatile season comes versatile footwear styling. Bring on the options this spring!

For those chillier March days just barely past winter, we recommend pairing a weather-resistant leather boot with pants or jeans with a tuck or small cuff to avoid splash stains.

A new spring dress might call for an airy slip-on or slide sandal. Even a stylish sneaker can be a fun way to play with style with skirts and dresses.

Spring hikes might do best with a closed- or open-toed hiking shoe to stay comfy and dry even on wet, slippery trails.

Finally, pants and jeans work well with almost any spring footwear option. From lifestyle athletic shoes, boots, boat shoes, ballet flats, sandals, and classic canvas or leather sneakers to desert boots and dress shoes, you can take your pick.

The options are nearly endless this time of year, so feel free to create your own trends this season.

Best Materials and Colors

With the right materials and colors, you can enjoy your shoes throughout the Spring season.

  • Breathable fabric: As the sun starts to stay out longer, materials that offer plenty of ventilation, including mesh or canvas, can help feet stay comfortable in warmer weather.
  • Weather-resistant leather: Since spring can bring rain and shine, water-resistant materials can help you stay dry. Choosing a shoe with weather-resistant leather offers tremendous versatility during the spring season.
  • Rubber outsoles: Shoes that feature rubber outsoles provide grip and traction on the often slippery surfaces of spring.
  • Lighter, neutral colors: Trade your darker black and brown winter shoes for lighter shades in line with the season. That said, water and mud can come into play during the spring, so opting for easy-to-clean canvas or leather is a smart option.

Sandals: Easy, breezy sandals for men and women often make their debut in the spring. This shoe style can easily transform from casual footwear to a dress shoe.

Slip-On Shoes: An everyday spring shoe, a slip-on shoe or leather loafer like KIVI can easily transition from a work shoe to a lounging shoe.

Sneakers: Sneakers or athletic shoes for women and men are a versatile option for just about any weather. Choose a mesh upper for warmer days and leather for cooler ones.

"Finally! I can wear a flat tennis shoe again!

I tried the white, straw yellow, and deep navy options. Love the fit of these! I returned the white, as I prefer the canvas vs. vegan leather. Very comfy and supportive. I can see these will be my favorites in Spring with shorts & dresses."

-- Gwen P

"Great shoes.

This is the second pair of the leather Chicanes I have bought. The others lasted 2 years, worn everyday from fall through spring. During the summer, I wear my mesh Chicanes."

-- Bryan F.

"Love my new Stride shoes!

This was my first pair of KURU shoes and I'm loving them. They were comfortable right out of the box and work well with socks (no-show socks) or with no socks. I imagine wearing them most in spring and fall, with cooler (but not cold) weather."

-- Carrie H
