    Promising review: "The saying 'If I like it I’ll just get it in another color' is my obsession with these shoes! I bought a neutral pair at first to try them out and loved them so much I got black, red, white, and I’m already trying to decide on my next color. They are super comfy! I can be in them all day long, walking or standing. They go with so many outfits and you can dress them up or down — pair them with a dress or jeans. I think they look great on my feet and I wear them all the time! Perfect shoe for spring and summer! 😍" —Jessica

    They've got a 3.5-inch chunky heel.

    Promising review: "Amazingly comfortable. I was very skeptical when I bought this pair of heels. I thought I had to return them as they might not be comfortable for me. I have wide feet, so I thought they might not work but I wanna give it a try. Wowww!!! They blew my mind and they are very comfortable. I ordered size 8.5 and they fit me well especially my wide feet. They’re very cute and very comfortable. The material might not last me for years but they gave me a beachy feeling, which I love it. I totally recommend these shoes. They don’t hurt my feet at all." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $34.98+ (available in sizes 5–11 regular and wide and in 27 styles/colors).

    6. Some adorable, classic Mary Janes to match the cottagecore vibes your style gives. Dress 'em up, wear 'em casually...no matter how you wear 'em, these shoes will always be a fashion win.

    I am a Crocs stan, honeyyy *but* I wasn't always. I was the biggest Crocs hater until the pandemic hit. One day, after I got my stimulus check (LOL), I decided *what the heck* and bought a light blue pair with some Lisa Frank Jibbitz. I put them on and immediately fell head over heels in love with these shoes. They are beyond comfortable and have become my go-to shoes. I even keep a pair in the car in case I'm wearing shoes that aren't comfortable. I have so many pairs now (fleece-lined, normal, themed ones), it's getting ridiculous. I do agree, they aren't the absolute cutest shoes I own, but once I put the little charms on, I think they're literally the most adorbz things ever. The pink ones pictured above are mine and I'm obsessed with them. I mean, Mean Girls charms?! Come onnnn, so cute. 

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in sizes 4–19 and in tons of colors). 

    9. A pair of so cozy orthotic flip-flops that'll provide you with the arch support your achy feet need. Reviewers with plantar fasciitis are praising these as a holy grail shoe for comfort and relief.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these flip-flops. I own two pairs and have had them for two summers. I wear them every day nonstop. They are they only shoes I wear all summer and I wish they made a shoe for colder weather. They are the only shoes I have ever found that I can wear all day long where I have absolutely ZERO foot pain at all. I can stand all day, walk around all day at theme parks, on concrete, and my feet will never ache or get tired. I had plantar fasciitis and it went away completely. My feet completely stopped feeling bruised when I woke up in the morning. I have searched far and wide for a cold weather shoe or insole that even remotely comes close to the support of these flip-flops. They never gave me any blisters. They were a tad tight across the top at first but they stretched out after wearing them a while. I can’t say enough good things about these shoes. I love them and would buy a million pairs if I could. I hope they never stop making them. I seriously only wish they made shoes for winter!" —Liz L.

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 18 colors).

    10. Multicolored platforms with a 4" heel that are so bright and so cute, they're sure to have you flooded with compliments. A little white dress + these colorful beauties?! A *chef's kiss* 'fit.
