The phrase “spring clothes” summons visions of strappy sandals and equally strappy tops. But let’s be real here—spring isn’t actually that warm. Sure, it depends on the city, but spring is about as temperate as fall; the days are sunny, but breezy—meaning, you might be better stocking up on spring booties than you would on spring wedges. (Or, you know, you could always shop both.)

Spring booties are one of those things that sounds so wrong but feels so right. Ankle boots offer the perfect way to keep your toes warm and cozy without rendering your ensemble totally winter-facing. Booties pair just as well with sundresses as they do with tees and jeans, making them a fitting and versatile addition to any spring wardrobe. (And seriously, ankle boots are cute—if you get an excuse to wear them, why resist?)

While the winter booties landscape was vast and varied, the spring booties landscape is even more so—likely because spring booties don’t need to survive the snow (or pair well with tights). Ever-trendy snakeskin is on the sartorial menu. So are boots in classically vibrant spring shades. And studs. And glitter. And florals. And peep-toe cuts. Call to mind the spring booties of your wildest dreams, and odds are, they exist—you just need to shop them.
