    1. A chunky ankle-heel sandal with just the right amount of height to wear to work regularly β€” no need to bring backup shoes to change into!

    Promising review: "Let me start off by saying how obsessed I am with these shoes. They are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I'm going to order the other colors. I've worn these shoes all day, and I can go on all night too. However, I recommend anyone interested in buying these shoes to go a half size smaller. You won't regret it." β€”Mj

    Get them from Amazon for $17.52+ (available in sizes 4.5-11.5 and in 15 colors).

    2. A pair of snakeskin pumps that will make you look like a million bucks for a fraction of the cost.

    Promising review: "I bought these in three colors, and I'll probably end up buying more. The sizing is really good. I normally wear a size 7.5, and that's what I bought, and they were true to size. The heel is about as high as I can take (I don't wear heels all the time), but they're not too high. The foot pad is soft and comfortable, and my feet don't hurt when I wear them for a long time. I feel like I could wear these shoes for the next 10 years and the styling will hold up. They seem to be built well enough that the shoes will hold up too. I recommend them." β€”GinaV

    Get them from Walmart for $29.99 (available in sizes 6-6.5, 7.5-10 and in 23 colors).

    3. Or glittery block heels you'll surely ~sparkle~ in all night long.

    Promising review: "These shoes are so fabulous! I bought them to wear to a wedding and got so many compliments. I was able to wear them from the early afternoon until late into the night, and I can't wait to wear them again!"β€”Jenna

    Get them from DSW for $34.98 (available in sizes 6-10 and in black).

    4. A pair of embroidered velvet platform sandals that'll add a statement to any outfit you wear this fall.

    Promising review: "This is my second time buying these shoes. They are very comfortable and beautiful. I will recommend them to a friend too. My first ones were taken off my feet by my girlfriend. After wearing them for six hours straight at my birthday, she claimed them." β€”Dee60

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $99.97 (originally $180; available in sizes 6-10).

    5. Or sandal pumps with straps for extra support and extra chic-ness.

    Promising review: "These shoes are so comfortable! I don’t ever wear heels, and it’s like I don’t have heels on when I wear these! They are super cute and true to size. I will be ordering other colors!" β€”Becky Coit

    Get them from Amazon for $22.89+ (available in sizes 6, 7-8, 9, 10-10.5 and in nine colors).

    6. Platform crochet sandals with a 4.5-inch heel you won't even feel as you dance the night away.

    Promising review: "These are great heels. They feel sturdy, my foot feels well supported, and they're very easy to walk in. I have comfortably worn these for about 10 hours with zero discomfort. High-heel wearers know that this is an exceptionally rare thing. I was truly shocked. I ordered a second pair. If you like this style, I promise, you will be a happy camper. They are quite pretty too. I get several compliments every time I wear them."β€”KathyJac

    Get them from Amazon for $16.77+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in eight colors).

    7. A gorgeous patterned block heel, because we all know that florals are appropriate for every season.

    Promising review: "These shoes are super rad! They are a very comfortable heel that will most definitely be a staple this spring and summer. They seem well-built and sturdy. I bought them for the Kentucky Derby this May, but I will certainly be dressing up a pair of skinny jeans with these bad girls as well. I can wear both a size 7.5 or 8 shoe, but I ordered 7.5 to prevent my foot from sliding. I did buy gel inserts to make them more solid and now they fit like a glove. I definitely recommend these." β€”Oli

    Get them from ModCloth for $29.99 (originally $55; available in sizes 6-8.5 and 9.5-10) or from DSW for $39.99 (available in sizes 5.5-10)

    8. A pair of leather pumps with studs on the straps to lend your look a little bit of an edge.,

    Promising review: "I was not expecting to love these shoes as much as I do. I expected them to be cute (and they were) but they are also so comfortable. I wore them to a wedding and was in them for many many hours and my feet didn't hurt even a little bit. They're definitely the most comfortable heels I've ever worn." β€”Emily Czajowski

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 5-9 and in 20 colors).

    9. Some red platforms that give Sandy from Grease a run for her money. Tell me 'bout it, stud.

    Promising review: "These are great shoes! They really elongate your legs. I wore them all night at bachelorette party in Atlantic City, and they were very comfortable!!" β€”Kukuy

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $49.97 (originally $79.95; available in sizes 5.5-8.5, 9.5-11 and in red, black, and beige).

    10. A pair of pumps with "comfort" literally in their name, so you know it's part of their game.,

    Promising review: "I have tried many a heel, but this by far is the most comfortable I've ever worn. I can spend all day on them without them hurting at all, and that's saying a lot with my feet. They're conservative and classic, yet preppy and nice. I highly recommend them. Mine last for about two years, and I wore them about 60 times a year. The sizing is about right, maybe just a little snug until you work them in. But that's better then having them fall off, in my opinion. :) All in all, I recommend these shoes!!" β€”Emma

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 5.5, 7.5-9, 11-12, 5W-13W, 6 B(M), 7 B(M), 13 B(M) and in nine colors).

    11. Heels with a chic bow detail that will turn heads as you walk β€” no, strut! β€” down the street.

    12. Peep-toe "shooties" you can wear with jeans, skirts, or dresses to step up your fall look.

    Promising review: "These boots fit true to size. They are super comfy. I wore them to work all day and had no issues. You can wear them with jeans or a cute dress and the color is beautiful!!!" β€”Maria

    Get them from Francescas for $64 (available in sizes 6-9, 10).

    13. A pair of elegant dress pumps with an ankle strap to help with some extra support.

    Promising review: "These shoes are my favorite! They are super comfortable, extremely cute, and simple! I can easily wear these for several hours and not have any foot pain like most heels give women. They have great support around your ankles, and the straps are slightly cushioned so they don't hurt or give you blisters. I will be getting more of these in other colors." β€”Kayla B

    Get them from Amazon for $22.71+ (available in sizes 5.5-10, 11, and in 24 colors).

    14. A glittery pair of pumps that may put your feet in a (comfy) cage, but not you, because you can't be tamed in these babies!

    Promising review: "I LOVE these cute pumps! The ruffle adds a hint a cuteness/feminine touch without going overboard. The height is perfect (I just had my baby and am slowly getting back into my heels). They are true to size and very comfortable. You don't have to break them in. I read reviews that they scuff really easily, so I bought suede protector spray, which I plan to use generously on then before a long busy day out. I hope that helps." β€” SoCalGal

    Get them from Target for $29.99 (available in sizes 6-10, 11, 12, and in wide widths).

    17. A classic pointed heel with a velvet toe to give it just a touch of elegance.

    Promising review: "These are gorgeous shoes! It's a comfortable heel height even at 3.5 inches. I rarely wear heels, and I am a heavy girl, but I wore these for an entire evening with no difficulty. The toe bed fit my wide foot without pain. Your weight is distributed such that you do not tilt forward causing back pain. It's a great shoe! I wish I had bought in silver before my size sold out!" β€”paulathebrat

    18. Some stiletto booties that were made for walking all over you.

    19. A pair of platform boots to help start every day you wear them off on the right foot.,

    Promising review: "I love these boots! They are so comfortable and so very sexy! I am a heavy girl with thick calves and a weak ankle. These come above my ankle, so I can tie them tight like ice skates. They have really good tread on the bottom, so I can strut around town or just in the bedroom with confidence!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 4-13.5, 14, 15 and in black, brown, and beige).

    20. A gorgeous pair with bows and glitter that would make for a showstopping look with a wedding dress and are totally worth the splurge.

    Promising review: "My 3-year-old daughter, Grace, actually choose these for me for my 20th high school reunion. She said, 'Mommy you need these queen shoes, and then we can wear glass slippers together.' She was right. They are a beautiful fairy-tale shoe. They fit perfect and were very comfortable." β€”SJG

I almost panicked and returned because it seemed short but as the top loosened, it was perfect." β€”Ames

    22. A pair of strappy stilettos that'll dress up any business-casual or night-out look.
