    Promising review: "I had right ankle surgery six months ago and I was looking for low-heel ankle boots. I ordered these in cognac and they are so comfortable and a beautiful color. The fit is perfect and I feel that my ankle is secure with the zipper. I can't believe the price! I will buy all the colors because the heel size is perfect for me since I'm 5'7" tall.

    Keds / Via

    I have these sneakers and I love, love, love them. I recently wore them for the first time on a weekend outing. They're very supportive, didn't cut-up my heels, and gave me a little extra height. The gold detail on the ends of the laces are a lovely bonus. Basically, they're amazing and a must for your spring/summer wardrobe.

    Get them from Keds for $74.95 (available in sizes 5–11).

Can be dressed up or down, go with plenty of different outfits. The strap in the front at first seemed a bit loose, but as long as you tighten the back you’ll be fine. Fit me true to my size 10. Highly recommend!" β€”JeanellyBeans

    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." β€”Mj

    17. Or these similar shoes with a scalloped trim so gorgeous, you'll want to wear them every chance you get.

If any of you have been in either of those roles, you know there is no such thing as sitting during either event. These shoes saved me!

    Get them from Nordstrom for $119.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and in eight colors).

    18. Doc Martens, because you can't go wrong with a tried-and-true classic., Amazon

    Promising review: "These boots are BEAUTIFUL. Exactly as I remembered from my pair I owned in high school. They fit tight on first wear, especially where the tongue meets the boot (the seam). I wore wet wool socks for three hours in them to soften 'em up and form them to my feet. I wore them with regular socks last night for five hours and they fit AWESOME already. No discomfort at all. Super fast and easy to break in when it comes to a leather boot. My Fryes took months to break in and quite honestly, they still aren't nearly as comfortable at these. I'd feel confident wearing these all day or to walk around in a lot. LOVE LOVE THEM." β€”Sjeasley

    Get them from Amazon for $87.87+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in 29 colors).

    19. Vintage-style pumps that'll transport you back in time to another (possibly more fashionable) era.


    Promising review: "I bought these shoes to wear with my 1940s vintage dress and wow! They are awesome. The strap buckle is actually a clever device to save time buckling. You put the buckle where you want it to be and it slips on in place in front of the hook, which is VERY convenient! They are well made and I am very happy with them. I bought them based on reviews by other Amazon customers, who were right!" β€”C. Baldwin

    Get them from Amazon for $31.50+ (available in sizes 4.5–10.5 and in four colors).

    20. Simple sneakers that come in a variety of colors, so you can pair them with all of your workout gear.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable shoes, material is very soft so it stretches with your toes much like Nike shoes do, but for way cheaper! I've been using these for my 4 mile-at-a-time jogging or power walking, and they offer great support, fit, and there are no blisters on my feet or ankles. Ample room in the toe box so no rubbing whatsoever! I love these shoes and cannot believe how much they compare to my $65 dollar Nikes!! They have a nice lightweight sole, that let my feet breathe. I bought the black pair, but will be buying the other colors too." β€”MonkeyBizness1

    Get them from Walmart for $9.98 (available in sizes 6.5–9.5 and in 11 styles).

    21. A ballet flat for a flawless outfit that won't result in crushed toes and cut-up ankles.,

    These flats are my go-to. I have two pairs of the black and one in cognac. I keep them at the office and in my closet at home because I refuse to have them on-hand at all times. Yes, they are THAT comfortable.

    Promising review: "I wear these shoes pretty much every day unless it is raining or snowing. I walk everywhere and easily walk 3–6 miles day in these shoes without problems. I probably go through 1–2 pairs of these black flats a year. That sounds like a lot, but I rack up significant mileage on these shoes and wear them while walking on everything from concrete to gravel to low-moderate difficulty hikes (I have accidentally ended up on at least two hikes in these shoes and have been able to navigate very uneven terrain without difficulty)." β€”CynthiaH

    24. Sandals embellished with pearls to look simply heavenly with your warm weather wardrobe.

    Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely lovely! The color is vibrant, and the style is exactly what I wanted. The toe box is slightly snug, but that shouldn't deter you from buying these shoes because it's not overly uncomfortable. The bottom is slippery prior to wear, so scuff them up a bit as you walk and that issue is resolved right away. Otherwise, you will not regret buying these. So cute!" β€”camille

    Get it from ModCloth for $55 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in five colors).

    A few years ago I broke my foot and found I needed major support from my sneakers, not just for working out but for everyday use. I bought my first pair of Asics and never looked back. They are cushioned, comfortable, and exactly what you'd want in a sneaker β€” and over 3.7K Amazon customers agree!

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! I am hard to please due to plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, and lots of screws in my ankle. Great arch support and really beautifully designed shoe.
