Retailers share the top-performing shoes for the week:
STELLA MAE, Burlington, Vt.
1. Frye Sabrina boot
2. Clarks Caslynn Cheryl wedge sandal
3. Victoria Classico sneaker
Spring trend: “We have a big assortment, so really there isn’t one trend that people will come in to find. For summer, we’ve been selling a lot of sneakers and wedges — both high and low,” said store manager Laura Cunningham.
GOODMAN’S SHOE STORE, Indianapolis
1. Naot Kirei Mary Jane shoe
2. Mephisto Helen sandal
3. Bernie Mev Comfi slip-on

SCARPA, Charlottesville, Va.
1. Coclico Sela sandal
2. Attilio Giusti Leombruni oxfords
3. Lola Cruz Toe-Ring Sandal
Spring trend: “Clients are buying more Birkenstocks than they were a few years back, and more people are picking up lace-up oxfords than in years past,” said merchandising and store manager Susie White.
DEBRAS BOUTIQUE, Mobile, Ala.
1. Pura Lopez wedges
2. Rag & Bone Wyatt bootie
3. Dolce Vita Nona heel
Spring trend: “Funky shoes that aren’t so matchy-match are very popular,” said store associate Chad Chappell. “And things that are versatile sell well.”
