Sneakin' through spring.

For me, nothing signifies spring better than a fresh pair of sneakers. Stepping out into a crisp, dewy morning with the smell of new rubber wafting up from your feet is the penultimate April experience. This year, I'm looking at floral, lady-like sneaks especially...

These lovelies also come in black... while these sneakers are saccharine-pink and bearing both little birds and butterflies, I strongly prefer them to the Liberty version. Perfect for wearing with grey jeans and a slouchy fatigue-green parka.

Women's Pinwheel by Simple Shoes.

Keds had a similar version of this style last year, however, Simple's rendition seems slightly more adult-worthy (and it's made of organic cotton, to boot).

Women's Satire-Silk by Simple Shoes

I'd be surprised if these haven't been used in a fashion editiorial yet. With a playfully chubby shape and in unmistakibly warm-weather gingham, I find this shoe to be charming as hell, and versatile, too. I can see them equally with a short denim dress, some bright yellow shorts, wide-legged linen pants, or rolled-cuff, boyfriend-style jeans.

If you're more the hi-top style girl, then this pair might fit the bill. As a habitual wearer of dark denim, this bright plaid/stark white combo is utterly irresistible.

While not necessarily overtly feminine, I love the lollipop-style design in the mid-century hues. The other reason I love this sneaker is that it reminds me of going to the thrift store with my sweetay.

Skymyra Metallic W by Tretorn

The Skymyra is Tretorn's way of helping me fulfill my dreams of becoming more Jackie Kennedy-like (I refer to the sailing in summertime Jackie Kennedy).

Mia Mesh W by Tretorn

I'm completely in love with these... so ladylike, yet so simple... this is the type of shoe that would result in me looking at my feet all day long. The other reason I love these sneakers is because the yellow colorway reminds me of a pair of shoes I found in the street in NYC when I lived there. I referred to them as my "duck" shoes (and correspondingly drew a duck face on the captoes). I wore those shoes constantly until I ironically, lost them off of my feet at a festival. Hope someone out there is enjoying my duck shoes, or at least gave them a proper send-off.

Converse Tie-Dye Chuck from Delia's

And, at the other end of the "class" spectrum, are these irresistibly juvenile tie-dye Chucks. I am completely smitten with them. I also am flirting with the notion of soaking these in a weak bleach solution to create a dreamier palette for these shoes.

What about you? What sneakers are showing up on your radar?

Those little Tretorn flats are darling. Any chance we'll see the original duck shoes?

I love the Nikes and Adidas! So cute! I love the idea of florals on a sport shoe.

Sal: Nope, they are permanently and irrevocably gone...

Megan: Hopefully someone from Nike or Adidas will notice this post and sponsor a giveaway... ;)

Those top two floral pairs are insanely good.
