We’re surrounded by shoes all day. Boat shoes. Sneakers. Sandals. Boots. The list goes on.
Ever wonder which styles make the top of our list? Wonder no more. Here, our crew shares their favorite spring shoes for the upcoming season.
“I couldn’t resist adding this striped canvas sneaker to my growing collection of Crest Vibes. It will be pair #3 for me. I’m a fan of this sneaker because it’s so comfortable — easy to slip on and then kick off at the end of the day. The new vertical striping is a fun twist and will pair well with just about everything for me this spring, from culottes to frayed edge denim and my favorite camo green slouch twills.”
– Michelle Tomlinson, Sr. Visual Merchandising Director
“I’m constantly on the go, running around the office and traveling nonstop, so I need something comfortable and cool that I can get on and off easily. I also tend to wear a lot of the same colors, so these allow me to add a nice pop to any outfit. I’m loving my newly updated Striper II sneakers.” – Dan Leonardi, VP of Sales
“This is my first pair of penny loafers! My style is typically more athletic, but with the resurgence of casual, I had to give them a try. The metallic color offers a nice pop against my dark, mostly black wardrobe.” – Shannon Buono, Senior Designer
“I’m running in and out of airports weekly, and these wingtips are the perfect travel companion that are not only comfortable but can go from meetings to mai tais (or martinis) with ease.” – Chris Mottler, Director of Sales
“I love this boat shoe because it’s modern and clean. Also, it’s super comfortable, and since it’s lined with dry-lex, my feet don’t sweat!” – Nawal Khan, Associate Product Manager
“The A/O Daytona is a great update on the icon. Soft, tumbled leather uppers give them a pre-worn feel. It’s a classic, versatile look with subtle but fun nautical details that tell you it’s here to party.” – Christian Allen, Global Senior Product Line Manager
“The Seaside Perforated sneakers are the shoes that I wear the most during transitional months. They’re comfortable, lightweight, and stylish, so you can pair them with any outfit day or night. Being able to slip these shoes on and off easily is always a plus as well. I love the latest update we made to the pattern, which I feel elevates the style and looks almost floral. I can’t wait to add this back into my regular rotation when the weather warms up!” – Angela Chen, eComm Digital Marketing Manager
“Modern contemporary styling, rich velvety suede upper, soft lambskin linings, true moccasin construction, a padded collar, and a hand-crafted leather heel wedge with a natural crepe sole. This is my perfect go-to luxury chukka boot for multiple everyday wearing occasions. Extremely comfortable, this is the only shoe I need when traveling to a relaxed weekend with friends or a day at the design studio.” – Chris Kittle, VP of Design
