    Forget The Foot Pain: 16 Oh-So-Comfortable Pairs Of Shoes To Add To Your Collection

    Because life is way too short to spend it walking around in uncomfortable shoes.

    1. Adidas Cloudfoam Pure running shoes that'll make you feel like you're truly walking on a cloud — thanks to the memory foam sockliner, stretchy mesh upper, and Cloudfoam cushioning. Plus, you can slip these right on and off without tying and untying the laces!

    2. Some Skechers walking shoes designed to revolutionize your walking experience with responsive cushioning, a rebound insole, and a mesh fabric upper to help keep your feet comfy no matter how many steps you take.

    3. A pair of waterproof Columbia hiking boots — they're ultra-breathable and designed for long-lasting comfort. Plus, the advanced traction rubber soles will help keep things slip-free in case you're trekkin' through any rough terrain.

    4. Slip-on mules that are surprisingly comfy and easy to walk in for those days when you need something a little dressier than a sneaker.

    6. Lightweight and breathable sneakers that go all out for comfort while looking chic and giving your outfit some minimalist vibes. The knit upper hugs your foot and stretches with it as you move, the ventilating insole keeps things dry while making you feel like you're walking on pillows, and the pattern on the bottom of the sole is made from flexible grooves for extra grip to help avoid unexpected slips and falls.

    7. Cute faux-leather, strappy pumps — they're flexible, cushy, and way more comfortable and supportive than any heels you've ever known.

    11. Slip-on OLUKAI sneakers ingeniously designed with a drop-in heel, so you can slide your feet right over the foldable back — making them convenient to slip into when you're in a hurry.

    12. A pair of pumps loved by reviewers who usually *hate* wearing heals. These are adored because 1) they look taller than they feel — making them much easier to walk in, 2) they're designed with soft cushioning that makes them feel almost as comfy as sneaks, and 3) they don't make that loud ~click clack~ sound that alerts everyone to your arrival when you're still way down the hall.

    Here's what BuzzFeed editor Danielle Healy has to say about these:

    "Sometimes it feels like my feet are made of paper with how easily they blister. 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.*"

    Get them from Ma’am Shoes for $150 (originally $300; available in sizes 4.5–11 and in five colors — not every color is available in every size).

    16. A pair of versatile clogs that go nicely with a variety of outfits and have a memory foam footbed your soles will adore.
