Off the Rack: Spring Shoes at Target

A day to night red peep toe wedge

Yesterday I went trigger happy with my camera to capture all the latest spring shoe styles at Target. Trends run the gamut: Floral details, pink, metallics, cork wedges, wood heels, gladiator flats, and yes, clog-inspired styles! There are also colorful flip-flops for spring break, Birkenstock knock-offs and funky rain boots for battling spring showers in style. Which styles are you loving? Have you bought anything yet or are you holding out for something else? Keep reading for a ton more photos!

Pink is back!

Feminine flowers

The perfect nude pump is back in stock! It's called the Victoria. Get them before they're gone.

Laser (?) cutouts and stacked wood wedges


Gear up for spring showers with fun wellies in prints like whales, plaid, houndstooth and polka dots.

Remember this style from last season? Vanessa Hudgens rocked a pair. Not sure I could though!

These are super tall! Boho chic. Kinda love them.

A sort of mod yellow wedge with cork heel

Gladiators? Check! These look Matt-Berson-inspired.

Woven gladiators. Love these.

Here's the black version

At first I thought these were kids shoes, but they're not! I kinda love these, too, have a sweet Kate Spade or Marc by Marc look.

The clog invasion is here!

Lots of chunky wood heels

Are you feeling the studs, wood and woven leather-look?

Tan is a great classic color option for spring

A versatile wedge that looks comfortable, too.

Taupe is totally hot for spring. I really wanted to love these but I'm not sure they are "the ones"

nice selections! i found a similiar pair of those suede gladiator sandals from kmart. i love them, they're very comfortable.

All so cute, but that first pair of red patent wedges is my fave.

I think those nude pumps are calling my name...

In my past couple of visits to Target I've noticed quite a downfall in the quality of their shoes/clothes/accessories... has anyone else had the same experience??

I have the black suede sandals and love them! I also bought the nude pumps and could barely stand to wear them for an hour, very uncomfortable.

I was there last week and spent all my time in the clothing section - Merona especially had super cute stuff for spring! I'll have to check the shoes next time, really love those yellow cork wedges.

Why did you show me this? I'm in love with the brown wedges!
#11 Jax on 2010-03-10 19:08 (Reply)
I see a lot of "clog inspired" shoes.

I have the nude pumps - surprisingly comfy. I'm still iffy about those flower wedges.

does anybody ever stop you at target to be like, what the heck are you doing? or to ask if you're the budget babe?

I bought the cognac woven gladiators last night. It's amazing how comfortable Target's shoes are for the price!!

Sorry, I'm not interested in buying cheap shoes that won't last more than one year, it's not in my budget to restock my shoe closet every summer.

Yeah, Target is ON this season.
I'm laughing because I have two of the pair above - the Jack knock offs (which are sold out in stores around here and online) and the metallic flower flats.
Can't wait for the Liberty of London goodness to arrive on Sunday!

I kind of love the look of the "Vanessa Hudgens" shoes. But, like you, not sure I could rock them like her. When I'm at Tarjay on Sunday to check out the LOL collection, I may have to try those babies on...

Just so everyone knows, all shoes are buy one get one half off right now!

I bought the black patents (like the red ones in your first photo) and love them so far. Though, they seem to run a little small. Target does seem to have some great finds this season!
