As if splashing color into your wardrobe is not enough of a spring statement, designers have also set their eyes on bringing the brightest colors onto the season’s shoe must-haves. From open-toed pumps to strappy sandals, the color-blocking trend is springing into life. In keeping up with this cheerful trend, we’ve curated the best color-blocked pairs from our favorite shoe masters.

Brian Atwood | Alima pump | Price not available

Brian Atwood’s Alima pump is by far, the best materialization of what shoe color blocking is all about. The quad-color combination is in-your-face, and irresistibly catchy.

Christian Louboutin | Summerissima | $995

Christian Louboutin’s Summerissima pair hit shoe success by employing classic shades such as red, white and black. May it be a leisurely breakfast run or a chic night affair, this pair can deliver a knock-out finish to your look.

Giuseppe Zanotti | $695

Giuseppe Zanotti channeled the pop art movement with ease in this fun pair of peep-toe pumps. The refreshing turquoise hue set in contrast against the fuchsia platform is a combination that begs for everyone’s attention.

Vionnet | Price not available

Women wary of loud and proud hues can also tone it down. This pair of open-toe sling-backs from Vionnet keeps up with the trend sans the acid-bright hues. The yellow and nude combination still makes for an enviable spring pair.

Stella McCartney | Lomax Satin High Heel Sandal | $1,025

Stella McCartney’s highly feminine pair of satin sandals hit all the right points under spring’s color blocking trend. Playing up pink and red with such vivaciousness, we’re eager to see this pair trotting around the city this spring.

Alice + Olivia | Lada Shiny Snake Skin Heel | $345

Color blocking and minimalism don’t always sit side by side, but Alice + Olivia made it work with this snake skin pair which also paid tribute to black and white’s undeniable class.

Tory Burch | Anastasia High Heel Sandal | $395

Charming and lady-like were the first two words to slip our tongues after seeing this Tory Burch pair. Besides the classy play on neutral shades, the suede and leather skin afforded a winning texture that floored us.

Gucci | Tri-color suede platform sandals | $895

Seemingly inspired by the ocean, this pair of suede platform sandals from Gucci is an invigorating dose of black, blue and aqua. The cool hues is a refreshing change from the onslaught of citron yellows and sunny oranges.

Nicholas Kirkwood | Price not available

Walk into the bright side with this breathtakingly bubbly ankle strap pumps from Nicholas Kirkwood. We like the tangerine heel that complemented its aqua body like a dream.

YSL | Cassyopee High Heel Sandal in Black Patent Leather | $995

This wedge-and-high-heel hybrid snagged our attention for its simple yet bold merger of pink and black. Undeniably stylish and sophisticated, YSL earned our nod for its restrained take on this spring trend.
