6 Bold Shoe Trends You Should Try This Spring

Just when we thought we wouldn't have to go shoe shopping this spring — what with last year's '90s slides looking to dominate the summer once again — we caught a glimpse of Coach's new footwear collection. And, suddenly, our Need To Own Now list has gotten a little out of control.

Yeah, the usual suspects are here, but these aren't your typical normcore staples from last year (or 1999, for that matter). Think: chain-link high-heeled sandals, ladylike loafer-slingback hybrids, and tangerine-colored flatforms that look elevated  in more ways than one. Click ahead to see some of our favorites, and get ready to kick your shoe game up a notch...or two.
