    Don't get us wrong: We love a gorgeous, towering platform heel. Our feet? Not so much. And, while we're willing to sometimes suffer for fashion, it can't be an everyday thing. So, we're giving our poor tootsies a break and embracing the not-so-humble shoe. These clever kicks manage to be that magical mix of stylish and practical — and we are wearing them everywhere.

    The last couple of seasons have seen the preppy staple shake off its fusty past. In its place are metallic, bejewelled, two-tone, and monochrome styles just perfect for nearly any occasion. And, that’s the real reason why we place this shoe above all others. The trusted lace-up is so darn versatile. It makes a basic outfit feel fancy and lends a hipster-vibe to a glitzy look. Plus, when you wear them, you can run to catch a bus or dance the night away. Ahead, our edit of the best styles for spring. Slip them on, tie them up, and get walking.
