In the market for a cute pair of spring shoes that are versatile enough to go with all your favorite outfits, but could still pass for a summer wedding slip-on? We fell hard for this pair of denim wedge sandals while reading Eat Sleep Denim and had to share. As the site boasts, these babies come equipped with “an ultra-flattering adjustable ankle strap. We especially love them for outdoor weddings (we know grass and skinny heels are mortal enemies, but no sinkage here!)” Grab your pair of denim wedge sandals by MaraisUSA.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your shoe collection and add some interest to the mix. Whether the warm weather will find you hosting gatherings in the park with your friends or embracing downtown New York strolls on the regular, make sure you do all of these things with style. The made-by-hand men’s shoe line n.d.c. has your back (and your feet, obviously). We highlight our favorite pairs from the spring lookbook below.
Our favorite picks…
Espadrilles: Take a stroll along the French Riviera in the 1960s with these flexible, relaxed and easy espadrilles. Made with the flexible and light ‘Strobel’ construction (where the upper and insole are stitched toether), the shoes are slip-lasted and stitched to the leather outsole with natural yute trimming the edge.
Foundation: Reminiscent of 1960′s London’s city-gent style, these elegantly shaped rejuvenated classics belong in every man’s wardrobe.
Faderless Toecup Son
Goodyear: The Goodyear line goes back to the beginning of the n.d.c. story when designer Enrique washed his pair of n.d.c. Goodyear brogues in his home washing machine after deciding that they looked just a little too perfect. The esult was like nothing that has been seen before on the market: beaten-up, washed shoes with a whole personality of their own.

Keep n.d.c. bookmarked and check back for their new website this spring.

Ladies, if you’ve been searching for the perfect shoe to make your torn-knee jeans look a little less grungy, this may just be the perfect solution. Espadrille wedges are the perfect union of casual and cute, and with a cuffed hem and a high-waist, you’ll look more like a vintage pin-up than a ’90s left-over. We love the Marais USA tomato espadrille wedge ($105). Available now at the Marais online store.
