    1. A pair of rubber sole platform espadrilles for a little height without any of the discomfort — ::in my best Chandler voice:: seriously, could there be a more perfect summer shoe?,

    Promising review: "Love these shoes. I’m trying not to wear flip-flops these days because of the lack of support. In addition to these shoes being very comfortable to wear all day, they provide the support I need and they’re stylish. I bought two tan pairs and yellow. I’m thinking of getting a third pair." —Sara

    Get them from Amazon for $13.88+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 11 colors).

    2. 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).

    3. 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).

    4. A pair of classic AF 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 $15.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 21 colors).

    5. A pair of dramatic AF pointed toe boots that are quite literally made for walking and that's just what you'll do all damn day in them.,

    Promising review: "They fit true-to-size, are comfortable, the height is perfect, and the style is really cute. The package came in less than two weeks." —Notorious Tye

    Get them from Amazon for $39+ (available in sizes 4.5-14 and in black and snakeskin print).

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

    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).

    7. A 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 literally feel like I'm walking on a cloud! I am a size 8.5-9, and as many reviews said to do, I sized down to an 8. I think it's a perfect fit. My only concern is there doesn't seem to be any good traction on the shoe. I stepped onto a vinyl wood floor and my foot slid around quite a bit. I'm hoping that the shoe will adapt and gain some traction over time. We shall see! In all other aspects, I love the comfort of the shoe and its aesthetics." —kellylstubbs

    Get them from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 15 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 (because it'll 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 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.


    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).

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

    Promising review: "These are SUPER comfy and look exactly like the picture. They also shipped well and maintained their shape. I wear them a couple times a week at least!" —Leah Good

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

    11. 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.

    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." —Amazon Customer

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

    12. A pair of ultra-soft ankle-strap sandal booties, because you don't ever want to give up your booties, even if the temps rise to unbearable heights.

    Promising review: "These shoes are so cute! I was unsure about ordering these because I never get my sizing right but these are amazing! They’re super comfortable and adorable! You can’t go wrong with these — they could go with literally any outfit. I can’t wait to try these out for my vacay in LA!" —Ana Ortiz

    Get them from Amazon for $24+ (available in sizes 5.5-7.5 and in taupe and mauve).

    13. A pair of heeled ankle-strap sandals to throw on in a pinch when you really don't want to wear a proper heel.

    Promising review: "I'm between a 5.5 and 6, and ordered a 5.5 based on other reviews. These sandals are so cute and surprisingly comfortable. The quality looks and feels much more expensive than what I paid for these babies. The straps aren't suede but a soft velvet — very fine and soft. Love the height of the heel. These are perfect for summer and can elevate any outfit. These are a steal! I would recommend these sandals for people with normal or narrow feet." —Liz

    Get them from Amazon for $17.58+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in six colors).

    14. 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).

    15. A pair of fashionable AF 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 $9.87+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 40 color options).

    16. 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 23 colors).

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

    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 $35.70 (available in sizes 5-11).

    18. 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.

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

    Promising review: "Wow, I'm impressed by these shoes for what I paid for! They are very comfortable, the color is exactly what it looks like on the product photo (I bought pink), and they look very cute! Will definitely go back and buy other colors." —Sharon Li

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

    19. A pair of retro-inspired ankle-wrap heels that'll help give your look an office-appropriate splash of color.

    Promising review: "Super cute, very comfortable, and true to size! I got more compliments when I wore these to work than any other shoe. I will be ordering another pair in a different color. Love 'em!! :)" —Susan

    Get them from Amazon for $62.99+ (available in sizes 4-15 and in 11 colors).

    20. A pair of Stuart Weitzman Nudist heels for a perfect sky-high heel you'll literally be able to wear with everything you own.

    Promising review: "The Nudist is a beautiful shoe, made perfectly! I wear heels day-to-day for work and purchased these for a special occasion. I was pleasantly surprised after the first wear, at the end of the night no blisters or sore feet. High-quality shoes and a great value!" —Katie OBrien

    Get them on Amazon for $398 (available in sizes 4-10 and in three colors).

    21. 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.,

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

    Promising review: "I have wide feet so I was worried that these shoes would be too narrow, so I ordered a size up. They're actually quite wide and I really didn't need to do that. They're super cute and comfortable. A great casual shoe!" —Oblivion

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

    22. A pair of cute cutout booties designed with a delightful ruffle detail to help add some whimsy to your step.

    Customers have pointed out that the sizing can be small and you should def check out the sizing chart.

    Promising review: "They are so great. My expectations were low, and these are above and beyond anything I imagined. I’m usually a 7.5-8 and I ordered the 8. They are a true 8. Very comfortable. My only complaint is they are SLICK on the bottom. I’m headed out to scuff the heck out of the sole of them so I don’t do the splits. Again. Haha! Trying them on on the tile in my kitchen was an adventure." —BD8

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 30 colors). And get some anti-slip pads just in case you don't want to be slipping and sliding like the reviewer mentioned.

    23. A velvet pair of bow-detailed slip-ons designed with a chunky platform for a little extra height.

    Many customers have suggested you size down on these bad boys.

    Promising review: "Size down! LMAO! Shoes came off and I almost lost my life going down a hill. Or wear super-thick socks. They’re cute and comfy tho!" —Kimi Curney

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in sizes 9-11 and in four colors).

    24. A pair of 100% vegan ankle booties you'll likely wind up wearing more than any other booties in your closet.

    Promising review: "These boots are exactly as pictured. They are comfortable and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them. They’re also very versatile and go with anything. Jeans and a cute top or a dress! Since I wasn’t sure what the sizing would be like, I ordered a half size up. It wasn’t necessary but with my socks, it’s not too bad. I would order your normal size." —Sara Marie Paisley

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 12 colors).

    25. A pair of metallic star-studded high-top sneakers made of a breathable canvas and vegan leather.

    Customers have noted that these are pretty narrow, so if you have wider feet these may not be for you!

    Promising review: "These are so adorable and unique! I love how the stars shine. Simple and fun! They fit true to size and are comfortable. I've gotten so many compliments on them too!" —Melanie F.

    Get them from Amazon for $22+ (available in sizes 10-11 and in black and white).

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

    Promising review: "I'm in love with these. They just arrived today. I was concerned these might be too tall for my 5'4" 130-pound self, but they are perfect! The measurements here state 26" from the heel, but mine are 24" (closer to 23" when wearing them). If they were 26", 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 $439.99+ (available in sizes 5-10.5 and in four colors). If SW is out of your price range, try these pretty awesome dupes for $20.99+.

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

    Promising review: "I am a size 9 and I always order a 39 in Birkenstock. Go down a size for sure! They are the best sandals ever. You may want to wear them around the house for a couple of days before wearing them for an entire day, it takes a bit to break them in. All they need is the heat of your feet for a bit first!" —savannah cook

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

    28. And a pair of Frye boots so you can still be a total badass — except now you'll have comfortable shoes.

    Promising review: "I have three pairs of Frye boots, including these, and these are by far the most comfortable! The foot bed 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).
