Steve Madden Irenee Ankle Strap Sandal
WHERE TO WEAR: Thanks to the sensible heel height and chic (but secure) ankle strap, you can walk miles in these sandals pain-free. They'll be a go-to for outdoor weddings and workdays alike.
HELPFUL TIP: While you can't go wrong with blush or black, we'd grab them in the on-trend snake print for a fun but still easy-to-style vibe.
Sam Edelman Loraine Loafer
WHY WE LOVE IT: "These are the softest leather loafers I’ve ever worn, and they go with EVERYTHING. The gold details are perfect for a more polished look." —Emily Carter, Rank & Style Digital Marketing Manager
Rothy's The Sneaker

FUN FACT: Every time you slip on these kicks, you can feel good knowing that your purchase helped divert millions of water bottles from landfills. Bonus: they're also machine washable.
Superga 2750 Cotu Sneaker
WHY YOU NEED IT: Meet the easiest, most comfortable, and most versatile white sneakers money can buy. Whether you wear them with your sweatpants in the city or with polished pieces at work, these do-it-all sneakers are a lot more premium than their price tag suggests.
AS SEEN ON: These are Kate Middleton's faves.
Sam Edelman Hazel Pointy Toe Pump
LOVED FOR: The leg-lengthening heel, classic silhouette, and padded sock make these pumps pure perfection—and they've got over 800 positive Nordstrom reviews to prove it.
USERS SAID: "Like so many law students, my dream is to become a trial lawyer, which means I already spend an exorbitant amount of time on my feet. I own approximately 10 pairs of the Hazel Pumps, and they're the only shoe I can wear all day, every day."
Adidas Originals Stan Smith Sneaker
LOVED FOR: Whether you wear them to play tennis or not, this old-school sneaker is one of the most iconic styles on the market.
HELPFUL TIP: These run large, so you'll want to go down a size for a perfect fit.
Converse Chuck Taylor Low Sneaker
WHY YOU NEED IT: They were cool in 7th grade, and they're still cool now. Chances are, these chic canvas sneaks aren't going anywhere.
STYLE WITH: Pair them with black pants and a blazer to give them a slightly elevated look.
Adidas Originals Superstar
WHY YOU NEED IT: Loved for their sheer versatility and cool-girl factor, these wear-with-everything shoes will become your go-to summer sneakers. Can't beat that $80 price tag, either.
STYLE WITH: Wear them with an LBD for a chic high-low look.
Vans Old Skool Classic
Birkenstock Mayari Birko-Flor Sandal
BEST FOR: From chunky trainers to platform Tevas, it's safe to say that the ugly shoe trend gained far more ground than we ever thought it would. These Birkenstocks are a total blessing for any girl who wants to be on-trend but feel comfy while doing it.
LOVED FOR: With a suede-lined cork footbed and super cushy sole, these babies provide supreme comfort with every step.
