"Cute, comfortable, and well-made so they'll last figuratively forever."

"They're incredibly comfortable, and a lot of their shoes don't have the bulky, 'old person' look that a lot of comfortable shoes have. I'm 16 and I get compliments on mine all the time, not to mention the fact that I can walk in them all day (even on cobblestone streets) without my feet hurting at all."
Prices: Starting at $39.
"They come with a really lovely insole — you could walk all day on them. Bonus: If, like me, your feet are wide, your arch is high, and your calves would not be described as dainty, they still fit comfortably."
