    Promising review: "Love them so much. They go with everything I will be wearing all spring and summer. And comfortable! I am not one that finds too many comfortable shoes with my arthritis. My feet do not hurt while wearing or when I take them off. I really like the strap in the back as well so that I am not constantly gripping my toes to keep sandals on." —Amazon customer

    Get them from Amazon for $58.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 12 colors).

    2. A pair of platform Vans with cute little flower decals. Perfect for spring or any day you need more floral highlights in your life!

    Macarena Collection is a small business based in Buena Park, California. All of the shoes are handmade by Mexican artisans. Since they only make whole sizes, they suggest sizing down if you're in between as the shoes will stretch and mold to your feet as you wear them.

    Get it from MacarenaCollection on Etsy for $43.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and eight colors).

    5. Strappy pumps you'll want to dance the night away with. How romantic! 

    Promising review: "These shoes are some of the most comfortable heels I have ever purchased. I have heels that I paid over $100 for, but they aren't near as comfortable as these LifeStrides. I've worn these shoes several times to events or out to dinner, but today I wore them to work for 8 hours. I walk quite a bit at work, but these heels did not hurt my feet. I usually get pain in the balls of my feet, but these have just the right amount of cushion." —Joni R. Harris

    Get them from Amazon for $49.98 (available in sizes 5–12 and seven colors).

    6. Very cool slip-on boots with a memory foam insole and a sleek silhouette gunning to be your night-out shoes of choice. Look at these paired with some distressed jeans and tell me you don't want them! (I want them.)

    Promising review: "I don’t give reviews unless I feel it’s worthy of either praise or warning. I have a lot of issues with my feet and finding shoes that fit and are comfy is very hard. After reading one review on these boots I took a chance and ordered them. What I can tell you is they are true to size, they don’t cut into my legs, and they are amazingly comfortable! If you are looking for cute and comfortable Chelsea boots, I highly recommend these!" —Roodale

    Get them from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes 6.5–10 and three colors). 

    7. Strappy pumps that one reviewer said they could even run in! Very handy for any impromptu foot races or sudden alien attacks.

    Promising review: "If you'd like to add 3 inches to your height without the dangers of toppling over, you've got to try these platform sandals! They're absurdly comfortable, soft, lightweight, and breathable. I've walked miles in these. The open strap design visually elongates the length of the leg. Also, there are lots of colors to choose from, and you will! I've got three and counting." —CC Mac

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes before leaving on a trip where I would do a lot of walking.

Added bonus is they are super cute too! Can’t say enough good things about these!" —K.C.S.

    Promising review: "These are my first Cole Haan sneaks, and I don't think I'll ever be tempted to buy from another company. They are beautifully made yet stylistically subtle and were immediately comfortable. I can wear them with everything in my closet, and they're now my go-to shoe. I love the way the leather has broken in so that the shoes now look lived-in but still very chic. I'm invariably a size 9–9.5, and I purchased the 9. They fit perfectly snugly, and I prefer them with thinner socks. I couldn't be more pleased." —K. C. S.

    Get them from Cole Haan for $109.95 (available in sizes 5–11).

    19. Allbirds tree runners that are honestly a fan-favorite of the BuzzFeed Shopping team. Anyone who has worn them has claimed that there isn't a single sneaker in existence that can beat them in sheer comfort.

    Get them from Allbirds for $105 (available in whole sizes 5–11 and 17 colors).
