We are already over the winter season and we're really looking forward to the spring days ahead. Firing up our anticipation even more are the wonderful assortment of pastel-hued spring shoes waiting in the wings to be worn. Today we're sharing a few favorites from Spanish footwear brand, Pikolinos Footwear's Spring/Summer 2017 collection. We became enamored with their stylish flats for the season, especially the Pikolinos Cadamunt, a collection of comfortable and stylish slip-on, and lace-up styles available in fresh spring hues that boast adorable details like cute fruit motifs and classic cutouts.

Cadamunt W3K-3633CR Espadrilles

How adorably sweet are the espadrilles? The hand sewn Cadamunt boasts a semi-vegetable, tanned leather upper, embroidered fruit (lemon, strawberry, and kiwi) on the vamp, a gel foam padded mid-sole, and a 1/2" heel. This perfect for the season shoe comes in a pale mint green, soft pink, and sand color options.

Cadamunt W3K-3628 and W3K-3629 Slip-Ons, & W3K-3631 Lace-Ups

Just like the above shoe styles, these three shoes are also hand sewn and feature a semi-vegetable, tanned leather upper. The two-toned Cadamunt W3K-3628 Slip-ons boasts a stunning etched motif on the vamp, a gel foam padded mid-sole, and a 1/2" heel. The classic Cadamunt W3K-3629 Slip-Ons features a woven upper, a slightly thicker sole, and a 1/2" heel. Continuing the woven leather upper, the Cadamunt W3K-3631 Lace-Ups also feature many of the previously mentioned details, like the woven leather upper, and also a multi-strand, leather laces that wraparound and close at the back.

Cadamunt W3K-4594CL, W3K-4596CRC1, and W3K-4604C1 Lace-Up Espadrilles

We move from slip-ons to true laceups with these three multi-toned and multi-textured styles. Whether you prefer a perforated or smooth leather upper, these Cadamunt shoe styles make a great spring or summer shoe. These, along with the rest of the Pikolinos styles are unique, comfortable and perfect for any style personality.

All these, and more Pikolinos Footwear styles, are available now for under $200.00 on www.pikolinos.com.

Shoe lovers and fashionistas proved that no storm can deny them the opportunity to help Tumblr celebrate it's 10-YR Anniversary. Braving the freezing cold and journey out of the city, attendees swarmed to Tumblr's opulent dance party, sponsored by Melissa Shoes and Stoli Vodka, at National Sawdust, the artist-led, non-profit venue in Brooklyn, during NYFW to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Along with great music, guest were treated to yummy hors d'oeuvres, a never-ending supply of delicious Stoli Blueberi Vodka cocktails to keep us warm, and some cute Stoli Vodka swag

While we certainly enjoy all of the above, we were most certainly there for the shoes. In partnership with Melissa shoes, all guests were treated to go home with their very own pair of blueberry-scented Melissa shoes from their new spring 2017 Mashup Collection. After much back and forth (how do you choose a favorite?) we decided on the Melissa Shoes She, a slick, flat closed toe slide which is definitely a future Shoe of the Day candidate on Shoeography.

Tumblr’s Head of Culture Content, Valentine Uhovski, briefly took the stage in between DJ sets to talk about Tumblr’s trademark artist and blogger program, with almost 100 of Tumblr’s NYFW alumni past and present in the crowd. Also in attendance were Tumblr Founder and CEO, David Karp, and top models from the agencies who are most active on Tumblr.
