30 Delightful (And Wearable!) Shoes From NYFW’s Spring ’14 Collections

An Alternative View - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014

Fashion Week has but two days left! We’ve seen a lot of the expected for Spring 2014–bright citrus colors, florals, white looks, unfortunate crop tops and more unfortunate peplums–and a little of the refreshing (trapeze tops! swing coats!). But, thankfully, anchoring so many of Spring collections are a whole lot of wonderful, colorful, wearable shoes.

And when we say wearable, we (mostly) mean it–designers are all about chunky sandals, flatforms and sweet boots for Spring. Here’s a smattering of some lovely shoes from NYFW…

Suno - Backstage - MADE Fashion Week Spring 2014

We are usually anti-sandal (New York is dirty) but these from Suno are perfect.
