50 Walkable Spring Flats You (& Your Feet) Will LOVE

No one wants their first spring steps to result in blister-ridden ankles and sore arches. Any pair of shoes that restricts our mobility and causes us pain (we're looking at you, four-inch pumps) probably isn’t a great option for commuting. Unfortunately, we've all been caught wearing untenable kicks at inopportune times. Whether you were the unassuming victim of a pair of secretly binding fashion sneakers, or the willing party in a pair of not-yet-broken-in, heeled booties, every painful pair of footwear has made you appreciate more comfortable options even more. To that end, we gathered up 50 pairs of spring flats — including pointed-toes, oxfords, espadrilles, and more — that you can actually walk in from point A to B to C to D. Cringing with every step? Forget about it.
