10 Chic High Street Spring Shoes To Put A Pep In Your Step

10 Chic High Street Spring Shoes To Put A Pep In Your Step

Yesterday was a cracker of a day. For the first time in a long time, it didn’t feel as though we’re trudging through the depths of winter; it felt like spring, in springtime. Imagine that? With the weather lifting our spirits and putting a pep in our step, our attention naturally turned towards our step, only to find that our feet have been buried in heavy boots since last autumn. We don’t even remember what our toes look like. However, without wanting to jump the gun too soon, we’d still rather keep our tootsies under wraps; it’s not that warm yet, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. However, the current spring-like conditions certainly warrant a step away from the boots towards something lighter in both style and colour. Below we round up 10 high street must haves that you can shop online right now. From platform trainers to dainty little office-appropriate loafers, you’ll soon have a pep in your step in more ways than one.

Technically you could still wear these during the darkest winter days but this style of brogue is always relevant, particularly at springtime, if you opt for a tapered leg trouser and wear those little hidden ankle socks.
