The IMAGE Team's Ultimate Shoe Edit

From chic sneakers to look-at-me loafers, the ultimate news-season shoe edit is in this month's IMAGE Magazine. Here, six members of the team choose the shoe?they've fallen for this season. Have you found your spring sole mate yet?

I love these block-heel sandals. The pretty pink print feels less girlish because of the solid heel and robust ankle strap: feminine without being saccharine.

I have a strong urge to channel my inner Phoebe Philo this spring in these gorgeous leather, snakeskin Stan Smiths from Adidas. I love her androgynous style and I personally want to thank her for making trainers high fashion again!

While I would adore to spend the summer in a pair of spindly Sophia Webster Flamingo Frills, this year I'm being more realistic. My next pair of shoes will be a pair of Stella McCartney rose gold flatforms.

I'm a practical girl, so this season, for me, it's all about the understated flat, preferably with embellishment to add interest. These Malone Souliers embellished suede flats would certainly brighten?up my spring.

As a self-proclaimed shoe addict, I'm constantly looking for the latest trend to sweep the high street. Boot-style sandals have really caught my eye this season, and I need these Zara leather sandal boots in my life.

I should probably invest in a pair of flatforms (although, the word makes me shudder slightly), but I'm a strappy sandal kinda girl, and my heart belongs to this beyond-pretty pair of Rupert Sanderson beauties.
