There’s still a nip in the air, but we know that warmer days are just around the corner. We can’t wait to break out in the season’s freshest shoes that will complement our new spring attire. To put our best foot forward, we consulted with the Barneys team to share eight pairs they’re eyeing and how they’ll be wearing them.

Jane Baek, Buyer,

Women’s Designer & Developing Shoes

LOEFFLER RANDALL Louisa Gingham Mules

“I’m already dreaming about the warmer weather. These sandals are a perfect new addition for my spring wardrobe. They’re dressy with a comfortable heel height I can walk in all day. I would pair them with basic tee and jeans to make them my statement piece.”

Lauren Ladnier,

Fashion & Merchandising Assistant

CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC Jackie Leather Slingback Pumps

“Did someone say spring training? I absolutely love going to baseball games (Go DBacks!). What better way to show some team spirit than with these baseball-inspired heels? Sporty, but make it fashion!”

Anna Deutsch,

Editorial Director

GIANVITO ROSSI PVC-Strap Suede Mules

“This is a fun pair of shoes in a great spring color, and I especially love the playful contrast of ladylike kitten heel with the PVC ankle strap. I’ll style these with my light wash jeans, a tee, and a blazer for an easy, breezy office outfit.”

Tangley Baumgarten,

Assistant Shoe Buyer

GOLDEN GOOSE Women’s Francy Mixed-Knit Leather Sneakers / GOLDEN GOOSE Women’s “Slide” Suede & Leather Sneakers

“I love these knit Golden Goose sneakers. I will wear them with a mini skirt and an oversized boxy sweater. These are also exclusive to Barneys making them extra special.”

Marina Larroudé,

Fashion Director

GUCCI Lyric Metallic Leather Mules In Fuchsia / Gold

“I just can’t get enough of a fun shoe. These Gucci slides are a conversation starter and easy on the feet. They would make any outfit fun – how can you not like them?”

Jaclyn King,

Associate Buyer, Women’s Designer Shoes

FENDI Logo Mesh & Leather Pumps

“I love this season’s pumps from Fendi. Not only are the mesh and pop of color on trend, but it’s the perfect transitional shoe to take your workwear from day to night.”

Athena Petropoulos,

Associate Shoe Buyer

MANOLO BLAHNIK Scolto PVC & Denim Mules

“I love the way the Manolo PVC mule can be paired with denim or a sexy evening dress. The sheer straps coupled with the beautiful Manolo navy suede makes for quite the perfect mule: comfortable yet still elegant.”  

Jillian Scorsese,

VP of Online Merchandising

PIC/ VALENTINO GARAVANI Stretch-Leather Ankle Boots

“I typically wear head-to-toe black, but I’m also a fan of the logo trend – this boot is a great wear-to-work option that comfortably fits into my personal, neutral style, but also allows me to explore the logo trend in an understated way.”
