5 Pairs of Lace-Up Flats to Help You Step Into Spring

We all know Carrie Bradshaw loves a good strappy sandal and we completely agree with the shoe queen herself. There's just something about that lace-up detail that adds a little something extra to any outfit. But we know that strappy Manolos with a steep heel aren't perfect for every occassion, unless you ARE Carrie Bradshaw (how did she manage to trot around New York City in those anyway?!). So we've found the 5 best lace-up flats to help you step into spring.

1. Steve Madden "Sunshine"

These simplistic flats ($69.95) come in 5 different colors and have a pop of metallic in the heel. Pair these with some baggy boyfriend jeans to wear to class! 

2. Caslon Espadrilles

Nothing says spring and summer quite like a pair of espadrilles ($89.95). These come in three different colors and can easily add a beachy feel to any outfit. Plus, how perfect are these for this summer's music festivals?
