    1. A pair of classic Mary Jane heels designed with an extra padded insole for an actually bearable high heel.,

    Promising review: "It's true, these pumps are super comfortable; they have a lot of inner padding but they look super chic and classy. The strap is perfect for keeping your feet from slipping out. I'm a true 10 and I purchased them in 10 and they fit perfectly. The heel size is an ideal, not too high, not too low height, and it's a block heel, so even more balance, and comfy." —Ixian

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 21 colors).

    2. A pair of dazzling glittery sneakers featuring sparkling details, a soft fabric tongue, and lightly cushioned footbeds.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these shoes! They are super comfy, very lightweight, and roomy. I wear between an 8 or a 9 and I got an 8.5; they're perfect! Colors are true to picture as well." —EmHill

    Get them from Amazon for $9.05+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 40 color options).

    3. A bold and colorful pair of Sanuk sling sandals designed with what must be the comfiest soles ever created — they're actually made from recycled yoga mats!


    Promising review: "I bought these while I was pregnant because I needed a comfortable sandal. These are suuuper comfy and great quality, I like them so much I bought another pair in a different color. Highly recommended." —JKW

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 10 colors).

    4. A pair of adorable ballerina flats to help you get through the day on a cushioned footbed.

    A customer review photo of a person wearing the ballerina flats in leopard print.

    Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely adorable! I got my usual size 6 and they fit perfectly. No room to spare, but not uncomfortably small. Plus the slight cushion at the bottom makes them feel comfortable. These shoes are very feminine and everything I could ask for in a flat shoe. Very happy with this purchase. I can’t wait until spring and summer to rock them with dresses and shorts. I ordered another pair in black and one in multi." —Melanie_and_David

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 32 colors).

    5. A pair of floral canvas lace-ups I'm sure you probably owned as a kid — but now you can have the adult-size version.,

    Promising review: "Okay these shoes are PERF! I bought them a few years ago, and I still wear them regularly. No, I would not recommend wearing them if you plan on walking all day long — they are obviously not athletic sneakers. But they're comfy enough to walk around in for sure, around a city or running errands or whatever! They are comfy and cute, and work well with most outfits! I felt like I took a little bit of a risk with these, and I'm glad to say they fit great and have lasted years." —Ruth wanders

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 29 color options).

    6. A pair of ankle booties that'll be your go-to shoe from now until forever...and maybe even a little after that.,

    Promising review: "These boots are amazing for the price! I am a size 7 and ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly with a pair of no-show socks, maybe just a little loose if I wear them with tights. I wear these to work in Wyoming often and have not once slipped or slid on the ice and snow! I think they are well-made and do not seem cheap. I can wear them all day at work and my feet are not sore by the end of the day. I ordered the clay color and it is the perfect taupe-colored bootie. I love them so much I'm about to order them in another color. :)" —awtnm

    Get them from Amazon for $19+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 19 colors).

    7. A brilliant pair of lace-up sneakers, because you're a street-style star and these shoes will be the proof.,

    Promising review: "Seriously O. M. G. I am in love with these shoes!!! I bought them to wear with my wedding dress for our reception but I know I’m gonna wear them for everyday life afterward. 😍 They are super comfy! I would say they’re in between being 1/2 too small and true-to-size, I wear a 6 1/2 in everything but after reading reviews, I ordered a 7 and they are slightly too large. But, I’d rather them fit that way rather than too small, it's nothing that wearing a pair of thicker socks can’t fix!" —S. Holton

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 21 colors).

    8. A pair of lace-up over-the-knee riding boots comfy enough to wear for hours and hours — which you might have to because once you lace these babies up you're not gonna wanna take them off (it'll just take too long).,

    Promising review: "These were comfortable all night. The first time I ever wore them I was at a birthday party at a club and danced in them for five hours. My legs and feet hurt a little bit after but if I only danced for like three hours, I would've felt no pain whatsoever. I received compliments and they were very comfortable. The laces kept coming untied until I knotted them AND tucked them into the top of the boot." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 14 colors).

    9. A delightfully whimsical pair of floral print Superga x LoveShackFancy sneakers so pretty they wrapped them in a ribbon.

    A pair of floral print Superga x LoveShackFancy sneakers.

    Superga is my ALL. TIME. FAVORITE. sneaks. I have semi-wide feet (not totally wide but also not standard) and these are just miracles on my feet for days when I'm walking or standing for hours on end. They're also machine-washable and last for nearly ever.

    Get them from Superga for $119 (available in sizes 38-41.5 and in two colors) and check out the entire Superga x LoveShackFancy collab.

    10. A pair of the most comfortable 4-inch Soludos lace-up wedges your feet will ever know — these are probably my favorite shoes in the world, they give me height but make me feel like I am walking on rubber bands...which I promise you, is a good thing.


    Promising review: "Excellent quality. These espadrilles are SO soft, light in weight, and the material delicately hugs the shape of your feet upon the first try. The design is absolutely flattering. Initially, I considered a lower heel, worried that a 4-inch may be too high. Not at all. Go for the 4-inch. It's worth it and very comfortable. I'm a 9 but ordered an 8.5 size per their advice. Definitely order half a size down. I would not recommend these shoes if you are a wide fit." —Luli

    Get the from Soludos for $109 (available in sizes 5-11 and in three colors).

    11. A strappy little pair of faux suede flats that are lightweight and designed with a rubber sole so you're not slippin' and slidin' while you walk around town.,

    Promising review: "I originally was looking for red shoes for a costume, but I'm too practical for one-time-use items so instead I looked for cute and comfy that I could wear more than once! These shoes are exactly that! These never fail me in the comfort department, and as for style, they definitely are as the picture shows! My suggestion would be to size up. I ordered a 7. My foot is also both on the narrower side but I'm flat-footed." —GmaDIAZ

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 6-11 and in three colors).

    12. A pair of Rothy's new slides designed to be just as comfortable, fitting, and easy to wear as your favorite flats — they have comfy knit straps, a luxe, contoured footbed, and require zero break-in period.


    Get them from Rothy's for $115 (available in sizes 5-13).

    13. A pair of lightweight mesh running sneakers for full support, a cushioned insole, and breathable lining that'll make your next run a walk in the park.

    A customer review photo of a person wearing the mesh running sneakers in light blue.

    Promising review: "I love these shoes!! They are lightweight and don't feel clunky. My socks don't slide forward in my shoes. They have good support on my arches. They are breathable. These are my favorite running shoes now and I just ordered another pair." —Momma Bear

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in four colors).

    14. A pair of ankle-strap sandals with an elastic strap, to get the stretch and movement you need from a summer shoe.

    A customer review photo of a person wearing the ankle-strap sandals.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a comfortable alternative to flip-flops for work, and these are definitely it. I can see wearing these at the lake as well. I was worried about the section covering the toes being too tight, but it actually stretches a bit. I ordered the tan and black pair, and I am glad that I did." —Angela Otto

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 26 colors).

    15. A pair of Allbird's Tree Dasher running shoes — arguably the most comfortable shoes in the world, these sneaks are made of renewable materials that are machine-washable and minimize odors, are super flexible that they conform to your movements, and have a supportive dual-density sugarcane midsole for easy wearing.

    A pair of Allbird's Tree Dasher running shoes in Cyclone.

    Promising review: "I waited in order to give this a longer road test. I have been walking almost daily during the quarantine. These shoes are comfortable and have great support. I tend to have blisters, but not with these shoes. They are a big winner in my book!" —Lisa L.

    Get then from Allbirds for $125 (available in sizes 5-11 and in eight colors).

    16. A timeless pair of metallic Birkenstocks 'cause you're a hippie — a glamorous hippie, but nonetheless a hippie.

    A customer review photo of a person wearing the Birkenstock Arizona Leather Sandal in copper.

    Promising review: "I bought these over three years ago and am now a hardcore believer in Birkenstock. So comfortable! They've lasted so long, I'm just now buying my second pair and will be making my first pair the 'around the house' sandal. They're the only shoe that completely eliminates my foot/back pain. It's awesome. Once you get them they take a few days to break in/mold to your foot but after all that you'll love them forever. Get these!" —MC

    Get them on Amazon for $89.95+ (available in women's sizes 5-10.5 and in a variety of colors).

    17. A pair of wrap-around 4-inch wedges designed with an open toe and a whole lot of pinup inspiration.


    Promising review: "Waited a long time (three weeks approximately) but it was worth the wait. Shoes are comfortable, cute, and a true size." —Giovanna

    Get them from Amazon for $26.88+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 15 colors).

    18. A pair of lightweight sports sneakers made with a durable fabric mixed with gold thread so they sparkle just enough., Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these shoes for the price! I got them for fashion purposes and so far they are so lightweight and so cute! Can't beat the price, and great quality! Putting another order in today!" —Katlyn Holmes

    Get them from Amazon for $8.47+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 17 color options).

    19. A pair of adorable ankle-strap sandals with a heel you can actually walk in and a beautiful selection of colors to choose from.,

    Promising review: "Love love love these shoes!!!!! I don't normally buy cheap shoes because my feet suffer. But I just wanted a really cute low-heel, open-toe sandal to wear to my sister's wedding. I knew I would probably just wear them one time, so I didn't want to spend a ton of money. These shoes are gorgeous, comfortable, and I just ordered them in two other colors!!! You can dress them up or dress them down, so they are totally versatile!" —Leah

    Get them from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 24 colors).

    20. A pair of ComfyCush Vans designed using some seriously soft (but still supportive) memory foam footbeds — like I'm not even being super dramatic or anything, but these will change your life.

    A photo of the ComfyCush Vans in classic black and white.

    Check out exactly how much we love these ComfyCush Sneakers!

    Promising review: "I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I got these. I've always loved the looks of Vans but always found them incredibly uncomfortable. Because of this, I haven't owned a pair for over 10 years. I decided to take the plunge and try them again when I heard about the ComfyCush sole. Super happy that I did. I hated them when I first put them on but my feet acclimated quick and they've been great since. They are super comfy and are great for walking. They are by far my new favorite shoe. I love that I can be comfy and have a good looking shoe. Also appreciate that they're not narrow! I have wide feet but don't have a problem with these. Definitely, recommend." —Samman

    Get them from Vans for $70 (available in sizes 5-14.5 and in eight colors).

    21. An adorable pair of rubber Chelsea booties to comfortably take you from puddle jumping to trail walking.,

    Promising review: "These boots look amazing. I’m usually a 9.5 or 10 and I have very wide feet and they fit perfectly, although because they’re basically rubber I’m sure they’d be OK on narrower feet as well. They’re super comfortable, even without socks. You can see the front top of the shoe jets out to give more movement in the shoe when you walk which looks a little strange if you look at it too long. But they’re great! I can’t wait for it to rain again! :)" —Heather C

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and in 13 colors).

    22. A pair of waterproof mid-calf snow boots designed with a fully lined interior and a deep rubber thread — you won't be slipping and sliding in these.,

    Promising review: "I just received these boots and tried them just around the house. Super comfy and light, very warm. They have a thick fur lining inside to keep my feet warm. They look waterproof, though I haven't tested them yet. My favorite part is the zipper!! The laces make the boots adjustable to fit snug or loose to your calf. So different types of pants can fit in them. I am ready for the snow!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 18 colors).

    23. A pair of pointy-toe ballet flats to literally wear all the time — and they come in a ton of colors so you can have a pair for any outfit.

    A customer review photo of a person wearing the pointy toe ballet flats in black with two other pairs surrounding her feet.

    Some customers have noted that these are one-season shoes, but you'll be comfy that entire season.

    Promising review: "Soft, flexible, comfortable, easy to walk in, and surprisingly durable. I wore them every day to work in an office for 6 months (12-hour days) and they were still in good condition except my pinky toes were rubbing a hole almost through the shoe. I'm on my second pair." —Karolineus

    Get them from Amazon for $9+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in 17 colors).

    24. An attention-grabbing pair of velvet Soludos slip-ons you'll wear when you feel like peacocking around town.

    A pair of the Soludos velvet peacock sneakers.

    Promising review: "Comfortable from first wear. Super fun shoes; I received multiple compliments from strangers first time I wore them." —Beth M.

    Get them from Amazon for $57.99+ (available in sizes 5-11).

    25. A pair of luxurious suede Stuart Weitzman Highland boots that are surprisingly comfortable: like seriously, you'll be shocked.

    A pair of the Stuart Weitzman Highland boots in gray.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with these. They just arrived today. I was concerned these might be too tall for my 5-foot-4, 130-pound self, but they are perfect! The measurements here state 26 inches from the heel, but mine are 24 inches (closer to 23 inches when wearing them). If they were 26 inches, they'd be more like a full-leg boot rather than an over-the-knee boot on me! Instead, they hit a couple of inches above the knee, just like in all the pics I've seen on blogs. They tie in the back. Also, I found them to be true to size for a boot. I wear a 7 in sandals or shoes with no back and a 7.5 in everything else. These are a 7.5 and they fit right, without socks. Anything more than a very thin sock or tights would make these tight on me." —Emily C

    Get them on Amazon for $635 (available in sizes 9-12). If SW is out of your price range, try these pretty awesome dupes for $20.99+.

    26. And a pair of leather upper and rubber-soled Frye boots so you can still be a total badass — except now you'll have comfortable shoes.

    A pair of the Frye Engineer Boot in black.

    Promising review: "I have three pairs of Frye boots, including these, and these are by far the most comfortable! The footbed is the softest. The sole looks like leather from the side but actually has grippy lugs. I didn't have any issues with using the zipper right away — easy on, easy off. The two buckles are both adjustable, but I haven't needed to adjust them. These are perfect right out of the box, and the dark brown color is gorgeous and goes with everything." —Utahn

    Get them on Amazon for $179.95+ (available in sizes 5.5-7 and in three colors).
