All that bright, happy spring fashion you've been pinning, seeing in stores, reading about: Doesn't it all feel a tad too soon? Not in the sense that you wouldn't want to peel off your gray layers and that dutiful Uniqlo puffy liner in favor of a flimsy, floral mini. But, in reality, you're probably not quite there yet. Whether it's a cold snap down south that'll catch you by surprise, or a full-on arctic blast — those frothy threads are going to have to wait.
Fret not, because there is a way to put your best foot forward in the most sensible of ways — a new sneaker purchase. Not only is it ideal timing to get some fresh active gear with those warmer, clothes-shedding months ahead, but a pair of kicks is sure to put a little spring in your step in more ways than one. Designer duds, athletic trainers that look like they're from the future, and retro soles are all fair game for getting a case of happy feet.
