It's one thing to see the same shoe in every single magazine and shopping roundup, in any given month, but it's an entirely different thing to walk into your local coffeeshop and notice that three of the women in line are sporting the same kicks.
Ever since we've retired our grody winter boots, our shoe wardrobe has been desperate for a little retail therapy. And we're not the only ones — we've noticed more than a few people on the street breaking in their first spring shoes of the year in styles we've been seeing in ads all winter long. Take a look at the real-life shoes that we been seeing on the very real streets of NYC… and tell us, which pair is perfect for your spring debut?
