    1. Pointed toe mules that'll bring your search for a stylish and comfy flat to a screeching halt. One reviewer refers to these as "wonderful" and says that they "feel so good on my feet," so rest assured you'll feel pure bliss the next time you need something fancier than a pair of dingy sneakers to run your errands in.

    2. Western-style ankle boots with velvet and faux snakeskin accents for the swoonworthy style giving summer weather the ~boot~. Because there's no better way to celebrate black denim season than in a standout style that'll make you look and feel like a total rockstar.

    3. A trusty pair of 2976 Dr. Martens TikTokers have been doting on for a minute, and I'm sure you will too. *Plus* they're super practical for longgg days on your toes, as they're supportive and can be slid on and off easily — no laces as far as the eye can see!

    Check out how this TikToker styles their Docs.

    Promising review: "Was thrilled to finally find this style in my size. Very comfortable, can wear them all day. Slip-on style loosens after a few wears, which is a good thing! Great with leggings, skinny jeans, and skirts/dresses. They even work with sweats. Add a sheepskin insert if you want a bit a warmth." —Kelly

    Get them from Amazon for $149.95+ (available in sizes 5–10 and five colors).

    4. Franco Sarto patent loafers complete with thick rubber soles and a business-casual tassel, so you can actually make those ripped jeans look more refined than you ever thought was humanly possible.

    6. Slip-on sneakers (in 70+ styles!), the failsafe option when you need to go check the mail...which turns into needing to grab a few things from the store, and now all of a sudden you're at the post office. But hey! At least you were able to slide into an easy breezy pair of shoes, that were *made* for your skinny jeans, to take you there and back.

    7. Or! Corduroy sneakers with fuzzy shearling lining, because cooler temps are just around the corner and if you're someone who likes to continue wearing slip-ons sans socks, these gems need to be in your arsenal.

    Promising review: "I could not adore these sneakers more! They're comfortable and look so well-made.

(Also, easy to find LOTS of cute coordinating shirts!)" —Erin R.

    12. Gorgeous, supplely soft waterproof leather booties because *these* boots are made for walking [through falltime showers in skinny jeans] and that's just what they'll do...and one of these days, they might just make their way into your cart! 🎶

    13. Hidden wedge high-top sneakers that thousands of people are besotted by for their comfort. With the height of a heel, but the all-day tranquility we expect from a pair of kicks — you and your jeans will be heart-eyed over your new sole-mates.

    15. A chic Chelsea rain boot to stomp in style whenever you're commuting in weather that can only be described as soaking. In these solid shoes, your feet will feel warm, protected, and, most importantly, bone dry — so you can wave ta-ta to that spare pair of socks you usually carry around with you.

So, when a brand markets itself as having a focus on stylish comfort, I am all ears. Fresh out of the box, I wore these red beauties out to dinner (a 20-minute walk each way), and my feet were no worse for wear. So, I decided to put them through the ultimate test — a wedding. Even after hours of dancing, my feet felt great, and I got loads of compliments. A statement shoe that really does look and feel great? *Big swoon.*"

    24. Bright and colorful clogs that I'm being served ads about on Insta almost daily. And what's not to love? Comfort served in the form of '70s-era fashion that looks divine with denim. OK, I think I just convinced myself that I need these....
