Huge thanks to Zappos and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post
You know I’m all about easy style, and that includes footwear! Today I’m partnering with Zappos and ShopStyle to share four shoes that are easy to wear for spring. When I say “easy to wear,” I mean that they’re easy to put on your feet, easy to walk in, and easy to make outfits with. These four shoes fit the bill, and if you don’t have anything like them in your wardrobe yet, you should definitely consider them. They’ll make style much easier!
Zappos is one of my go-to stores when shopping for shoes because they have a huge variety, carry some of my favorite brands, and create a really fuss-free shopping experience with 24/7 customer service, a 365-day return policy, and easy shipping policies. Zappos provides a lot of other perks as well, like free upgraded shipping if you link your Amazon Prime membership with Zappos, a 30-Day Runlimited option where you can try running shoes for 30 days and exchange them for something else if you don’t like them, and promotions for students, teachers, and military members. And, if you’re a Zappos VIP member, you get FREE expedited shipping, earn points on your purchases, and get more perks that you can learn about HERE. So much good stuff!
Also, Zappos carries way more than just shoes. They carry handbags and clothing, including some of my favorite brands for denim, pants, and tees, which I’ll share about below.
Let’s talk through four easy shoes to include in your wardrobe this season!
SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.
Sleek Athletic Sneakers
First up are sleek athletic sneakers. Specifically, I LOVE my Nike Tanjuns, which are currently ON SALE! These are great sneakers for athleisure outfits with leggings and joggers and casual outfits with jeans. Sleek sneakers like these Nike Tanjuns are key to looking modern and stylish in casual outfits!
I personally love these because, in addition to the sleek silhouette, they are super comfy. They are lightweight with a cushioned footbed made of memory foam. They’re not heavy duty trainers, so I rely on them mostly for athleisure, casual outfits, and light activity. Check them out HERE and grab them on sale! I wear size 9.
I love these shoes year round, and they absolutely work in the spring!
I’m wearing them in an athleisure look with leggings and a black and white striped tee. This striped tee is by Madewell, and it is lightweight and super soft. I really like the black collar and overall vintage and relaxed vibe, as opposed to a classic or preppy feel. Find it HERE. I’m wearing size S in the color Coal. Unfortunately, sizes are limited in Coal, but it is in stock in a similar olive striped version. There is also a similar black and white striped tee HERE.
Also, if you are looking for a very stretchy, comfy denim jacket check out THIS one from KUT From the Kloth! I wear size M.
Nude flats definitely fall into the category of easy shoes! Nude goes with pretty much anything and is especially great for softer and brighter colors that are popular in the spring. It’s an easy, versatile option to finish off nicer casual outfits and business casual outfits.
My favorite style is a simple slip-on with a little shine and a pointy toe, like THESE, which are also currently ON SALE! The sheen and the pointy toe add an extra touch of polish to outfits.
I’m showing them in a work look with plaid pants by Liverpool. These pants are SOOOO comfy! They are lightweight, soft, and extremely stretchy, but they look tailored, polished, and put-together! And, they’re ON SALE as well! The lighter grey and plaid pattern are perfect for spring. Find them HERE. I wear size 6.

If you’ve been around a while, you know I always recommend slip-on sneakers for casual style. First, they are easy to slip on your feet when you’re running out the door quickly and have your hands full. Second, the sleek, low profile pairs well with a lot of different bottoms, from skinny jeans to straight leg jeans to shorts to casual dresses. They are very versatile and easy to wear, and they give you a lot of options for casual outfits that aren’t athletic sneakers.
Here, I’m wearing the Marianne style by Naturalizer, which I’ve owned for 1-2 years. This pair has a fairly soft upper with a cushioned footbed for overall comfort. I’m wearing them in Oatmeal Snake Nubuk, and they come in black, light pink, leopard print, and metallic snakeskin! And guess what? They’re also ON SALE! 😁 Check them out HERE. I’m wearing size 8.5.
They work great with boyfriend jeans, like I’m showing here. These boyfriend jeans are by KUT from the Kloth and are a huge fan favorite! They are on the thicker side and have a classic vibe that is still fairly relaxed. You could easily dress these up or down! Check them out HERE. I wear size 6.
The graphic tee is soft with a worn-in feel, and it’s thick enough to keep it from clinging or being see-through. It has a nice, relaxed vibe. It’s available in this color and in black. Check them out HERE. I wear size S.

Last, add a pair of slide sandals for a super easy-to-wear option in the spring and summer. These work with jeans, skirts, dresses, and shorts, as they usually expose a lot of the top of your foot around the ankle, which extends your leg line.
I’m wearing a pair by DV by Dolce Vita in an off-white color called Bone. I love how white sandals add a pop and brighten up outfits in the spring and summer, but I sometimes find white too bright. I really like how this off-white tones down that brightness a bit! These have a really sturdy sole and sturdy straps, but the straps are comfortable and don’t rub your feet in a painful way. They come in this off-white color in addition to black, yellow, and shiny copper. Check them out HERE. I wear these in size 9.

These four types of shoes will take care of soooo many of your spring style needs. They go with lots of different types of bottoms, lots of different cuts of jeans and pants, and work with a lot of colors. If you are ever stumped on shoes, or if you just want to make it easier to get dressed, definitely look into adding some of these to your shoe wardrobe!
