Trending shoes for Spring 2024 featuring Vionic Pacifica Sandal to showcase the strappy sandal trend.

Keeping up with the trends can feel like a full-time job these days! We’re here to take the work out of looking and feeling good from the ground up.

When it comes to shoes, the secret to success is blending trendiness with quality. It’s a common misconception that the two are mutually exclusive; a stylish shoe doesn’t have to hurt your feet, and a comfortable shoe doesn’t have to be boring or blocky.

Our team carefully curates shoes from around the world with just that in mind. Stan’s carries the freshest styles that are still great for your foot health, encompassing in-the-moment comfort, fatigue relief, and injury prevention. You really can have it all!

Check out our list of spring styles & trending shoes below, and shop online 24/7 or in-store at our 7 convenient Midwest locations today.

Style #1: White & Cream Shoes

Clean-cut style is back and trendier than ever! White and cream are no longer “basic” colors; they’re the peak of footwear fashion. 

Style Spotlight: Women’s Remonte Liv 02 and Kendra 03

Remonte casual sneakers provide white with a flare: the Liv has soft floral accents while the Kendra enjoys a light brown zipper and heel. You’ll stand out in style in any Remonte shoe, especially these!

Shop the Remonte Liv 02 and Kendra 03 and more in-store and online today at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet. 

How to Keep Your White Shoes Clean

Bright white shoes can really make an outfit pop, but it’s hard to keep them unblemished for long. Whether it’s discoloration from everyday use or specific scuffs and stains, here’s how to keep white shoes good as new in our recent blog: How to Clean White Shoes and Cork Sandals

Style #2: Shoes with Pops of Color — Especially Red

With the popularity of white and neutral colors, many shoes will feature an additional “pop” of color to help you stand out this season. Red is an especially prominent color, adding brightness and flare to any outfit. 

Style Spotlight: Men’s Olukai Punini

The Olukai Punini is the best of two trends: a white and cream base gives way to an orange-accented heel, the epitome of “business in front, party in back.” An anatomically contoured footbed and lace-up, slip-on design make these perfect for every stylish man on the go.

Style #3: Shoes with Cork Detailing

Birkenstock popularized cork over a decade ago, and the trend is still going strong today. In addition to cork-footbed sandals, visible cork detailing will be a staple of summer style this year.

Style Spotlight: Women’s Birkenstock Soley

Wedge heels meet Birkenstock’s cork footbed in the Soley, the perfect dressed-up but ultra-comfortable sandal for summer. The exposed cork heel is a natural accent to any elegant outfit, and adjustable leather straps add an extra level of style.

Style #4: Baby Blue Shoes

Spring has always been a time for pastels, and this year is no exception. The color of choice this year is baby blue, and wearing it will make you feel like every day is clear and sunny, no matter the weather!

Style Spotlight: Women’s Hartjes Phil Zip Sneakers and Groove Sandals

Hartjes is your go-to brand for baby blue this spring! Velcro straps make for an easy on-and-off, and a suede upper and leather lining make for a soft and cozy wearing experience

Style #5: Straps, Straps, Straps

Sandal season is upon us, and this year’s accent of choice is straps—the more the merrier! Strap in (pun intended) to comfort and style this year.

Style Spotlight: Women’s Vionic Pacifica Sandal

With several wide straps criss-crossing your feet, you’re locked in for style in the Vionic Pacifica. The buckle adjustability makes it customizable for your feet, and Vionic’s patented VIO MOTION™ technology provides arch support that aligns your whole body.

Style #6: Neutral Colored Shoes

In addition to white and cream, neutrals such as beige and black are equally popular. The best part of neutrals? Every pair matches with any outfit! 

Style Spotlight: Women’s Naot Krista Sandal

Coming in black and white colorways, the Naot Krista sandal also combines exposed cork accents with a studded middle strap. Basically, you can’t get any more in-style! You’ll also enjoy comfort from a footbed that molds itself to the anatomical shape of your foot for extra support.

Style #7: Lifestyle Athletic Shoes

Athletic shoes aren’t just for the gym anymore: they’re for every moment of your day! Casual style is more popular by the day, and athletic shoes are the cherry on top (or bottom, technically). With a wide variety of styles and color palettes, there’s a pair perfect for anyone.

Style Spotlight: Men’s and Women’s On Cloud 5

Coming in almost a dozen colors and men’s and women’s styles, the On Cloud 5 is an everyday athletic shoe everyone can love. CloudTec® in Zero-Gravity foam makes for a cushioned walk, while breathable mesh counteracts warm or sweaty feet.

Great article. Thank you for all the tips.

I will be stopping in soon for walking shoes for sure and maybe sandals. I’m still on the look out for a comfortable pair of low black dress shoes with an arch and wide shoes box.
