Sometimes the cutest shoes aren’t necessarily the most comfortable. I’ll admit, I definitely wear uncomfortable shoes just because I love the style, but there are times where I really prefer comfort, or at least at shoe that’s more manageable for the occasion.
While the shoes I’m sharing today aren’t the most comfortable, or something I’d wear to go for a run, they are great options to meet in the middle of style and comfort. Keep reading for my top 5 choices!
Low Heel Sandal
These have been my go-to lately for that happy medium between style and comfort. The low heel gives it just enough height, but still comfortable enough to walk for long periods of time. These were my most worn shoe during our trip to Europe this summer where we did a ton of walking, and I never had a problem. I wear these to walk around the city here in San Francisco too.
Wedges are a great option because you can go a little higher with the heel, but they’re a lot more stable so they’re also easier to walk in, and generally more comfortable.
Low Heel/Wedge Boots
During the fall and winter, I always love having a pair of ankle boots that either have a low heel or a wedge so I can wear them with anything, but the little extra height makes me feel a little more dressed up than a flat boot.
Dressed Up Flat
Probably the most obvious choice for comfort, but I love a cute flat! My go-to is a leopard print because its cute and fun and also works with almost any outfit. I’ve had these for years and have gotten so much use out of them. I would definitely recommend a pointed toe because it looks a little more stylish and also elongates your legs.
Lastly, if you must wear heels, I would have to say that Schutz makes the most comfortable heels I’ve worn. I can’t speak to every style they have, but in my experience, I’ve never had any problem with them and always feel like I could wear them all day without being in pain. I’m currently lusting after these!
A few other things I like to use with my shoes to make them more comfortable is gel cushion pads that you can stick in your shoes so the back of your heel doesn’t rub, and I like to keep an anti blister balm in my bag that I can rub on any area of my foot that feels a blister coming on. I always keep some bandaids too!
