Put a Spring in Your Step: Great Walking Shoes
It’s time to pack away your winter boots, pick up a pair of walking shoes, and get ready for balmy spring expeditions on foot. Check out our favorite kicks from The Shops at Columbus Circle, where comfort is definitely in style this season. Hitting the streets of New York never looked so good.
A little glam goes a long way at Michael Kors. The Laticia Metallic Leather Espadrille is an update of the classic silhouette, finished with a ruffle trim. The Val Woven Bow Slip-on Sneaker is a fresh take on skater chic, with a rubber sole, a basketweave upper, and an oversized grosgrain bow. These shoes will take you from the city to a beachside boardwalk in style.
Are your high heels killing you? Slip a pair of the J.Crew Lea Ballet Flats into your bag in case of emergency. And stock up: They come in multiple colors and fabrics (suede, metallic, snake). Or reach for an iconic pair of white-pique SeaVees Legend sneakers, which are exclusive to J.Crew and inspired by the California coast of the 1960's.
When it comes to versatility, the signature Tali Bow Flat from Cole Haan has no peer. Pair it with slim trousers and a silk blouse for work, skinny jeans for an evening out. It’s also ideal for travel — easy off (and on!) for airport check-in. For longer strolls, the stretch-knit Zerogrand Sneaker molds to your foot and mimics its natural movement. Both styles are cushioned with exclusive Grand.OS technology for ultimate comfort.
Gotta have bling? The Décor Flat slip-on sneakers from Stuart Weitzman are made from nubuc leather and adorned with pearls and gems. Stuart Weitzman’s Speedwalk Flat comes in fresh nautical navy or sophisticated taupe with a white rubber sole. Pick up a coffee and a macaron at Bouchon Bakery, and stroll over to Columbus Circle or Central Park. With shoes like these, nothing will slow you down.
