Daffodils blooming, opening day, the scent of just-cut grass, cork wedges freshly out of the box—wait, what? Hey, some people have their own ideas of the harbingers of springtime. This season’s footwear is chock full of bold colors, pretty platforms and a modern twist on classic design. I brought some sassy styles to The Rhode Show yesterday from local shops that may just be your next must have:

 The Zelia Square Perf Peep in sea blue from Rockport in Newport has had my eye since it debuted in February. It’s highly shock-absorbent cushioning by adiPRENE protects the heel at impact making is comfortable to wear all day. $120 at Rockport

Merrell’s funky Trail Glove Barefoot Trail Running Shoes for men (and women) are ultra-lightweight, breathable and fit like a glove—perfect as you start hitting the great outdoors again. $110 at Sole Desire (10% off through Sunday)

Mootsies Tootsies Motinsy wedge with color blocking detail in patent leather navy and turquoise features a platform cork wedge sole. $39.99 at Sole Desire (10% off through Sunday)

The Madden Girl Lyons heel is a vintage-inspired polka dotted pump with a Mary Jane strap. $45 at Sole Desire (10% off through Sunday)

Take a classic driving loafer and add a bright, bold hue and you have the Pink Pineapple loafer at a fraction of the price compared to similar styles by Gucci (avg. $575) and Tod’s (avg. $495) at $118 at Island Outfitters.

Feeling hot, hot, hot with these stunning Pons Quintana Lola Platform featuring hand-woven leather. $350 at Active Sole

A more stylish take on the flip flop, OKAb.’s Sandy sandal in metallic hues features  a silver and gold sand dollar pendant, along with a sporty and supportive fit. $35 at Active Sole
