4 shoe styles to put a spring in your step

What to wear for the sunny season, and the one rule that applies no matter what footwear you go for.

March 30, 2015

Even though winters here in the UAE don't get anywhere near as chilly as you'd be likely to find in Europe or North America, the ushering in of Spring still comes with a seismic shift in the footwear landscape.

Heavy boots in darker shades are cosigned to hibernation in the depths of your wardrobe, to be replaced with playful and bright shoes made from high-end materials. Springtime is all about classic styles given a fresh twist, but getting it right isn't easy, so we spoke to the experts at Level Shoe District to learn what we should be putting on our feet this season…

The style was a hit in the autumn, and it seems like Monkstraps are sticking around through the spring, too, as the recent revival of this classic style continues. The double leather strap brings an element of formality, while also offering an alternative to the classic lace-up. Good-quality leather dominates the trend, but a contrasting mix of suede and leather can help keep the look fresh. 

This season we're all going to learn what Arab men have known for a long time: sandals are really comfortable and the best thing ever for keeping cool in the heat. High-quality dark materials make up this month’s must-have transitional shoe, making them perfect to pair with casual wear and great for wearing on the beach

Fashion sneakers
Gone are the days when sneakers were for sports days - this season the classic high-top sneaker comes of age. Classic silhouettes are reworked, with slimmer and less cumbersome shapes dominating the trend. While some designers have let their imaginations run wild with some pretty garish kicks, we prefer to air slightly on the side of caution when it comes to trainers.  

Bold colours
Regardless of the type of shoe, there's one thing that promises to be a common theme across all styles this season: bold colours. Springtime is all about solid blocks of primary colours. Not only will they help refresh classic silhouettes, but they're also bound to make a bold statement. Wear them with confidence.
