Shopping for spring shoes when there are a million new options to choose from and so many trends to keep track of can be challenging, relatively speaking. But that’s life. And as long as beloved affordable brands such as Mango, H&M, and Zara keep making incredibly stylish shoes, you’re going to be stuck making some difficult shopping decisions (again, it’s all relative).

Yours truly is very patient when it comes to shoe shopping, so I cropped through hundreds of pairs of shoes from Mango, H&M, and Zara to find only the very best pairs. I think I say this every year, but the offerings just get better and better, which makes it even harder to narrow it down. So I chose the seven biggest crowd-pleasers (many of them sandals, given the season) from each brand. Scroll to shop along with me and congratulations on making it to spring after a long, cold winter.
