Spring has fully sprung, and with it comes the promise of more outdoor dining, the sweet smell of night-blooming jasmine all over Los Angeles, and more excuses to wear actual, real sandals outside (we're currently that Jonah Hill gif, if you're looking for a visual touchpoint). In shopping for our own summer slides, we noticed so many trends—hand-painted florals, pastel snakeskin, quilted straps—that we couldn't help but round up them and share a few selections with you. Here are 18 of our favorite sandals to put a spring in your step this season:

Birkenstock Forager Slides ($450): A huge splurge, but mark our words: These will be ev 👏 ery 👏 where 👏 this summer.
