    1. A retro-inspired shoe with the cutest little cutout on the top for an interesting detail that won't distract from whatever you're wearing with them.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I typically wear a 9.5, which seems to not exist in most shoes I look at on Amazon. After reading reviews, I went with the 9. They fit perfectly. They were as comfortable as heels could be for someone who almost never wears heels. They are well-made, and I was very impressed and pleased. I will be ordering more in another color." —JennyA

    Get them from Amazon for $25 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in 41 styles).

    2. A platform pump to show off your ~wild~ side without having to worry about tripping and falling and spraining your ankle.

    Target

    Promising review: "These shoes are so cute! My boyfriend picked these out for me. It will take you a second to hook the straps around your ankles, but other than that, they're super comfortable to walk in. I love showing them off!"—Aria

    Get them from Target for $29.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and in brown and black).

    3. A pair of wedge booties to boost you up into the world of high heels. Reviewers say they're so comfy, you won't even realize you're not wearing flats.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Buy them!! I was skeptical but they really are as comfortable as they say. They are super cute and love the comfort. I wore them all day yesterday — shopping and vacuuming the house. I want another pair!" —Sarah Gandy

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and 12 styles).

    4. A two-tone sandal you'll ~pink~ out day after day because they've got a modern yet casual feel you won't get tired of.

    ASOS

    Get them from ASOS for $56 (available in whole sizes 4–11).

    5. A classic ankle-strap style — you might as well add a couple to your cart because you'll want them to match with everything you have in your closet.

    Sam Edelman / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "To say that these shoes are perfect would be an understatement. I wear them every chance I get. These shoes offer comfort without sacrificing any style of the gorgeous heel. I've already purchased them in white, black leather, and patent nude. Comfort is of the utmost importance for me when selecting heels and these feel like a second skin. Sometimes I forget that I am even wearing shoes, as I can throw these on casually on errands and run around town looking chic. I chose these over the similar Stuart Weitzman Nudist Song heel and I will never look back. You will not get a better value for the style, comfort, and price. Buy them now!!" —Monique Marshall

    Get them on Amazon for $69.97 (available in sizes 4–13 and in 22 styles).

    6. Slingbacks that are more than they are ~croc-ed~ up to be because they're so easy to just slip on and head out the door.

    ModCloth

    Promising review: "I usually have trouble getting shoes to fit comfortably, but these shoes are great. Wide enough for my foot without feeling squashed in. The pointed toes had me worried, but there were no cramped toes at all. The heel height is perfect for me so I can wear them all day or night, and the finish with the "croc" makes them look classy. I'm so pleased with them! I wear a size 9, and a pointed toe shoe usually makes my feet look like pontoons, but these just looked elegant." —gloria

    Get them from ModCloth for $64.99 (available in sizes 6–10).

    7. A block heel designed to look just as good with jeans as it does with a party dress. Get a shoe that can do both.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wore these shoes all day long to a wedding—I danced in them, walked up a golf course in them, and accidentally stepped in a puddle with them. They were comfortable the entire time. No water damage done! I wear a 9 in heels and have wide feet, and these were perfect."—Puja Saha

    Get them from Amazon for $33.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and in 13 styles).

    8. A platform to help you achieve that '70s vibe you're going for — but honestly, these will never go out of style.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $119 (available in sizes 6–10 and in six styles).

    9. A Harlow boot with a small platform that'll make you feel like you're basically wearing a pair of clouds on your feet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I read the reviews stating they were comfortable, but I didn't expect them to be this comfortable. I need to order the black pair. I have a high arch, therefore the top of my foot is high. Typically, shoes push a little too much and hurt the top of my foot. This one gives because of the elastic on each side. The angle of the wedge is perfect, and I don't feel like I could fall over or hurt myself. I am in love with these!" —Jennifer

    Get them from Amazon for $59.95 (available in sizes 6–11 and 6-11W and black, brown, and taupe).

    10. A pair with an ankle strap for an extra bit of support when you just know you'll be busting out all your best moves on the dance floor.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HATE wearing heels. I avoid heels at all costs. I will usually only wear heels that are 2" max and specifically made for people who hate wearing heels. These are 2.5" (description says 3" but I measured) and soooo comfy plus they look great! I wore these for a wedding and my feet did not hurt at all and no need for bandages. I've never been more satisfied with a shoe before." —Mommy adventures

    Get them on Amazon for $29.49 (available in sizes 5–12 and in 19 styles).

    11. A square mule so on the ~dot~ of fashion, you'll be crowned the ultimate fashionista of your friend group.

    Express

    Get them from Express for $52.80 (available in sizes 5–10).

    12. A pump made with a flexible sole so you won't have any trouble walking (or maybe even running a touch) in them.

    LifeStride / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "First of all I never wear heels! And I tried on about 15 different pairs, and these are by far the best for a normal pointy heel. The shoe is cut well and very attractive. The arch support is non-existent (as with every other pair of heels), but they are comfortable enough for me to wear them, which is saying a lot! The 9.5 wide fit me well, which is pretty true to size." —Timothy B. Sweeney

    Get them from Amazon for $46.24 (available in sizes 5–11, 5W–11W, and in 13 styles).

    13. A mule designed to quickly become one of your favorite shoes.

    Nisolo

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these shoes! They are sooo comfortable (I was pleasantly surprised) and so cute. I am extremely happy that I decided to purchase them. I’d love to get another pair someday." —Cynthia W.

    Get them from Nisolo for $150 (available in sizes 6-10 and in four colors).

    14. A pump that has a bit of a platform, which might look intimidating but actually makes the incline of your feet smaller, so you almost feel like your feet are flat.

    Naturalizer / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "These were actually comfortable!! My feet hate almost all shoes, and I had to dress up for a luncheon. I had to stand and walk around quite a bit and my feet were fine. I love these!" —JanellHouston

    Get them from Nordstrom for $98.95 (available in sizes 4–12 and in eight styles) or from Naturalizer for $99 (available in sizes 4–12 and in 17 styles).

    15. Scalloped sandals with a heel small enough that you'll feel a little boost of confidence but won't have to worry about your feet hurting in a matter of hours.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these shoes. The block heel is very comfortable, and the front strap is loose enough for my wide feet. The scalloped straps don't dig into your foot. They do run a bit big (I'm usually between a nine and a nine and a half, and the nine here was perfect). I was skeptical about the material, but they are soft and smooth like real suede." —I. Koehncke

    Get them from Amazon for $37 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in six styles).

    16. A chunky pump you can wear to an outdoor wedding so you know for sure that your heels will not sink into the grass.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These shoes are really comfortable to wear. They look perfect, and I definitely would go for the same type the next time." —Sagar Tamang

    Get them from Amazon for $41.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and in four styles).

    17. A mule that is basically a gold medal for your feet and will show the world that you are winning at life.

    Madewell

    Promising review: "I wore these right out of the box for an entire day. I wasn’t sure if I loved the tone of gold online, but in person, I think these are pretty perfect. They're versatile, and you can dress them up or down. Plus, they're comfortable! As a New Yorker, I wish they weren’t mules but they are cute enough to get over that issue!" —MzNYC

    Get them from Madewell for $119.99 (available in sizes 5–11).

    18. A chunky ankle-heel sandal you can wear to work and leave your backup shoes at home because you won't need to change out of these at any point during the day.

    Amazon

    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." —Mj

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 4.5–11.5 and in 11 colors).

    19. Chunky Chelsea boots that might look a bit intimidating, but trust me, they are so comfortable and will make you feel like a badass as soon as you put them on.

    Boohoo

    Get them from Boohoo for $26 (available in whole sizes 5–10).

    20. A Sorel mule with a fun pattern on the heel for an addition to your closet that you'll love.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "If I could rate these 10 stars, I would. I never wear heels, maybe once or twice a year. I had to wear these all day and late into the night, and I must say they are extremely comfortable! I highly recommend." —Megan Spangler

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 5–13 and 5–13W and in seven styles).

    Get them from Zappos for $59.99 (available in sizes 6–11 and in four styles).

    23. A pointed-toe style with a small heel to subtly elevate your look for a night out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I WALKED 8.3 MILES IN THESE HEELS AND HAVE NO REGRETS. I wore these for the very first time for Disneyland's Dapper Day and I was OVERWHELMINGLY surprised with how comfortable they were! I have never bought shoes on Amazon before and was worried that the fit and or quality would make me regret my purchase. But truly it was far from it. The heel is the perfect height to give you a lift and wide enough for you to feel secure! At the end of the day, the balls of my feet were a bit sore but that's just the effects of Disney. But I'm happy to report that I have no blisters and I can't wait to wear them out again!" —cissyjworstell

    Get them on Amazon for $39.99 (eight colors in sizes 5–11 and in 11 styles).

    24. Mules you can slide on when you oversleep and were supposed to meet your friends 10 minutes ago. Whoops!

    Chinese Laundry / Via instagram.com

    I own these shoes and wore them for our company holiday party. I loved how dressy they looked without having a ridiculously high heel. Since I live in New York, I rarely wear very high heels, but these were a perfect height. I was able to dance the night away and still take the subway home without my feet hurting and me regretting my shoe choice.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $69.95 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in three styles) or Chinese Laundry for $69.95 (available in sizes 5–11 and in black and white).

    25. A pair of gorgeous rhinestone kitten heels that are great for if you have a wedding coming up (or even if you don't, TBH).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am in love with these shoes. I always have issues with shoes. They always hurt me and give me blisters, but not these ones. I wore them for my wedding and every single person complemented my shoes. They were absolutely comfortable. I don’t wear heels at all, but I gave them a chance and I am not disappointed at all. My only advice is to buy a little bit bigger. I wear 7.5 but I wanted to be safe so I ordered the 8, and they fit like a glove." —Kyle Bianchi

    Get them from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and in seven styles).

    26. A pair of platform boots to help start every day on the right foot.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "These shoes are exactly what i was looking for! They are comfy, easy to walk in, and sexy! They are so versatile and will work just as good with leggings and a skirt as they will with jeans. I can't wait to start wearing them more!" —Charlotte

    Get them from Amazon for 22.97 (available in sizes 5–11 and 10 colors).

    27. A leather pump with a heel so on ~point~, even strangers will be asking you where you got them.

    T.J. Maxx

    Get them from T.J. Maxx for $49.99 (available in sizes 6–11).

    28. A pair with a bow because it's okay to give yourself presents, no matter what month it is. And you deserve comfortable heels all year-round.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are perfect shoes!! I wore them from 5 pm to 12 am in a floor-length gown and walked, stood, and danced a lot. I had no blisters, no chafing, no pinching, no problems. They're extremely comfortable and sturdy. What you see is what you get. I have wide feet with skinny heels (duck feet) and I was glad the strap kept the shoes on well. I will be buying more in other colors for future events I have to attend. I got tons of compliments, too. You won’t be disappointed!" —S Phillips

    Get them from Amazon for $41.99 (available in sizes 5.5–10.5 and in 12 colors).

    29. A slingback with a contrasting heel for anyone who wants to ~stand~ out from the crowd.

    Anthropologie

    30. A wedge you can wear on those days when you need to look nice but also know you'll be on your feet for hours and hours and hours.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I never wear heels because after about 30 minutes my arches and balls of my feet are killing me. I got these in the mail and in the same day without breaking them in, went out and did not take off these shoes for about 12 hours. They are incredibly comfortable (balls of my feet hurt by the end of the night but like I said, I had them on forever). I wear a 10, and they fit like a 10, and everything on the shoe looked well made! I'm very happy!" —Rachel Gibbs

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and in 18 styles).

    31. Ballet flat–inspired heels you'll be dancing down the street in as you wear them, with a block heel and elastic back to keep your comfort level at 100% all day.

    Everlane

    Promising review: "Thank you for making what is honestly the perfect heel. As someone with bad feet, two bunion surgeries later — plus rods and pins left behind — no matter how great a shoe looks, it's simply not worth the discomfort for me. THANKFULLY because of Everlane, I have two pairs of beautiful heels which I wear all the time. At night with dresses, but even better, in the daytime with jeans too, because they really are that comfortable. I've told all my friends with foot issues about this shoe because real friends share what makes life better, and these heels absolutely do just that for me." —Lakgrs

    Get them from Everlane for $145 (available in sizes 5–11 and eight colors).

    32. A block-heel boot that will go with pretty much everything in your closet and always have you looking put-together.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these boots. They look so expensive and trendy. They fit perfect to size. I've worn them all day and they are still comfortable. I like that they have the zippers so you're not bending the material trying to get your foot in. They're the perfect heel height for work. And cute enough to go out in! I am very satisfied. Great buy!" —JSinNJsc

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in sizes 5–11 and in 22 styles).

    33. And a splurge-worthy pair you'll love forever and ever and ever. I promise.
