Promising review: "These fit as expected with lots of room at the toes. Don’t believe for one second these aren’t comfy. I’m a hairdresser: I walk and stand over eight hours a day. These are comfortable enough that at the end of my work day, I have zero discomfort or pain. I don’t typically ever wear a shoe with a heel, so the fact these cause no pain, have a heel, and all of this with the fact I stand all day is awesome. Would recommend." —Ruelle

Promising review: "I had been looking for a pair of leopard print flats for forever. I found this brand in a boutique on vacation but when I got them home they were the wrong size. I decided to try to find them in Amazon and I did! They fit perfectly and are made of good quality material. I love these shoes. They are my go-to for work and a night out. They are also comfortable, which is important because I am on my feet all day. These were also way cheaper than the price I paid for them at the boutique. I will buy from this brand again!" —Ashley Thornton

The first time I wore them I was walking around the airport, and they were SO COMFY! No blisters, rubbing, or friction. They are literally perfect. I have wide feet too, so this was a pleasant surprise. I'm buying two more pairs of these!" —MaryGet them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 18 colors).

Promising review: "I’ve been searching for a cute flat that actually stays on my feet and are comfortable — a task that seemed unattainable until these miracles entered my life. They're true-to-size, have comfy insoles, and the straps aren’t too tight or too loose. These are the only flats I’ve owned that didn’t need to be broken in! I'm definitely buying these in other colors." —Legss

amazon.com

Promising review: "I needed a shoe for a fancier occasion and found this one. The flower pattern looked so cute! I was a little worried, because ordering shoes online you don't know if it'll fit correctly or not. When I received the shoes, they looked exactly like the picture. I was worried because my feet are wider than normal feet, but they fit perfectly. They slide on without effort and the back zipper makes it easier. Everything Is wonderful! Truly beautiful shoes!" —Jessica Mattison

These boots will be my go-to this fall." —HAYHAY14Get them from Torrid for $52.42 (originally $69.90; available in sizes 7-13, in wide and extra-wide calf, and also in black).

17. Minnetonka suede moccasins, because these will make a smooth transition into colder weather. Plus, you'll find yourself wearing these whether your in or out of your house.

Promising review: "This is my third pair of Minnetonka moccasins, and I'm still wearing the first pair. I've just simply moved them to my 'around-the-house' shoes. I love these moccasins! They are very comfortable, and not tight. I wear them when I'm running errands, working in our office, and even to picnics. The first pair I have is a few years old and the material has never torn, and the sole of the shoe is still attached to the shoe. I've tried other brands of moccasins in the past only to be disappointed, because they fall apart, come unglued, or can not stand up to a little rain. The Minnetonka brand is a very well-made moccasin." —GrannyMJGet them from Amazon for $29.90+ (available in sizes 5-10, medium and wide widths, and 27 colors).

18. Suede ankle boots that'll quite literally help you put your best foot forward (and actually feel that way).

Promising review: "I’m amazed at how comfortable these shoes are, I could feel the soft cushion inside. If you’re between sizes I would recommend sizing up. I’m a 7.5 and an 8 was a good fit. They're so beautiful." —vivamGet them from Urban Outfitters for $59 (originally $79; available in sizes 6-10 and in two colors).

Promising review: "I have very lame feet from injuries and surgeries (scar tissue and ruptured fascia/now flat feet). I am constantly looking for shoes that I can wear that make my feet feel better. I bought these while traveling because I just wanted some good 'airport' shoes and the price point was attractive (shoes for bad feet can cost over 100 dollars, generally). Well, imagine my surprise at how doggone comfortable these were. I wore them all day and into the evening the day they arrived at my location. I then wore them the rest of my trip. They are so comfortable! I am buying another pair." —G.I. JaneGet them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 6-12 and in 13 colors).
