    Treats for your feet.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of patent red pumps with a memory-foam insole supportive enough to help you out-run a dinosaur (or just dance your heart out at your best friend's wedding).

    amazon.com

    They're also available in several different colors, but patent red's currently the only one with a full range of sizes in stock.

    Promising review: "I actually bought these shoes for a cosplay!!! Claire Dearing from Jurassic World. I bought my husband the inflatable T-Rex costume. We go to Cons and I light up my 'flare' (a plastic red glow stick), and he chases me. SO YES — they are VERY COMFORTABLE. Comfort Plus is ALL I will ever buy when it comes to heels. As Claire, I am RUNNING in these during the Cons... walking until he suits up as the T-Rex, and then the running ensues. So they must be comfortable!

    They are nicely padded, the toe-box is big enough for comfort, and they don't fall off. Good sized heel, too. I have high arches and these support them, too, very nicely.

    I do also wear them for business related meetings and stuff, so they would work for "normal wear", in case you don't want a T-Rex to chase you." —Stephanie H.

    Get them on Amazon for $15+ (sizes 5-13, including some half sizes and both medium and wide) or with a pointed toe for $24.99 (color availability depends on your size; they come in four colors and sizes 5-13, in both medium and wide.)

    2. Light-weight foam wedge sandals that will give you three inches of height without any of the associated foot, knee, or ankle pain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So, these are great! The shoe is made out of the basic Croc's material where your foot sits, a sturdier material for support on the bottom, and fabric straps over the feet. I've worn them a few times, and they haven't caused me any issues yet with foot pain! I have plantar fasciitis, so that's a huge thing for me. They've been super comfortable every time I've worn them. " —Brittany Gibson

    Get them on Amazon for $32.99+ (sizes 5-11 and full-sizes only; two colors).

    3. Low-height (2.5") pumps available in multiple colors perfect for any occasion where you would reaaaallly rather just wear your favorite flats.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "I'm shocked! I needed a pair of heels to wear to a wedding. Seeing as I don't get out much I did not intend on spending a lot of money on them. Not only do these shoes look amazing, but they feel amazing as well! I wore them during the reception and the ceremony. They were so comfortable and did not leave blisters or my feet sore. I danced in them all night!" —Jennifer Hanns

    Get them on Amazon for $17.99+ (10 colors available in most sizes 5-12, including most half sizes).

    4. A trendy low-height ankle-strapped pair you can wear literally anywhere, whether you're a bridesmaid or just heading into a regular old workday.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HATE wearing heels. I avoid heels at all costs. I will usually only wear heels that are 2" max and specifically made for people who hate wearing heels. These are 2.5" (description says 3" but I measured) and soooo comfy plus they look great! I wore these for a wedding and my feet did not hurt at all and no need for bandages. I've never been more satisfied with a shoe before." —Mommy adventures

    Get them on Amazon for $21.99+ (15 colors available in sizes 5-12, including most half sizes).

    5. Psst, they also make the same style with a block heel, if you long for a bit more stability (or just like the look)!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I WALKED 8.3 MILES IN THESE HEELS AND HAVE NO REGRETS. I wore these for the very first time for Disneyland's Dapper Day and I was OVERWHELMINGLY surprised with how comfortable they were! I have never bought shoes on Amazon before and was worried that the fit and or quality would make me regret my purchase. But truly it was far from it. The heel is the perfect height to give you a lift and wide enough for you to feel secure! At the end of the day the balls of my feet were a bit sore but that's just the effects of Disney. But I'm happy to report that I have no blisters and I can't wait to wear them out again!" —cissyjworstell

    Get them on Amazon for $25.99+ (eight colors in sizes 5-11, including most half-sizes).

    6. Faux-leather Chelsea boots with a slight platform — they'll add a 90s vibe to basically any outfit you decide to pair them with.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Beautiful shoe for a gorgeous price! I've had them for a week now, and I've worn them to work every day (8-10 hours with significant walking around). I have no blisters, and the only discomfort I have is in my calves because I'm not used to wearing heels every day. I even bike to and from work (2 miles each way) and I've had no problems. I have no arches so I have $10 Dr. Scholl's arch supports in them which fit perfectly, and I highly recommend the combo for anyone who plans on wearing these all day every day like me." —Amazon Customer

    Get them on Amazon for $26.99+ (sizes 5.5-11 in black, or 5.5-10 in brown).

    7. Some wedge booties that you can buy now and wear all the way through fall and winter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My sister recommended these wedges to me for wearing at work since I am on my feet a lot but still have to have a dressy shoe, and my goodness, I could seriously wear these shoes all day long! They are fabulous! It's like wearing nothing at all... They don't squish my toes or the sides of my feet, they are so easy to walk in for the size of the heels, and they don't even rub my ankles like other ankle booties that I own. The neutral color is also great (I bought the khaki color), so I can wear them with practically anything. If you need a stylish neutral shoe, this is it!" —kacieD

    Get them on Amazon for $25.99 (color availability depends on your size; sizes 5-12 and 16 colors available).

    8. Strappy low-heel sandals available in basically every color of the rainbow, at a price that lets you get a few colors to go with all your favorite outfits.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "I was really hoping to like these shoes and ... they did not disappoint! I have wide feet so I was afraid that they would be too narrow but they are very comfortable. It's the perfect heel height for me since I do not like too high of a heel. The chunky heel also makes the shoe very comfortable for hours and hours to wear. This is a staple shoe for a very good deal." —Star K

    "Love love love these shoes!!!!! I don't normally buy cheap shoes, because my feet suffer. But I just wanted a really cute low heel, open toe sandal to wear to my sister's wedding. I knew I would probably just wear them one time, so I didn't want to spend a ton of money. These shoes are gorgeous, comfortable, and just ordered them in two other colors!!! You can dress them up or dress them down, so they are totally versatile!" —Leah

    Get them on Amazon for $21-35 (color availability depends on your size; there are 30 colors in sizes 5.5-11) or check out a similar style with a much higher heel for $21.78+ (color availability depends on your size; there are 15 colors in sizes 5.5-11.5).

    9. Or a pair of medium-heeled sandals that may not be the best shoe to stand in all day, but are a safe bet if you're looking for the perfect balance between comfort and stilettos.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "To say that these shoes are perfect would be an understatement. I wear them every chance I get. These shoes offer comfort without sacrificing any of the style of a gorgeous heel. I've already purchased them in white, black leather, and patent nude. Comfort is of the utmost importance for me when selecting heels and these feel like second skin. Sometimes I forget that I am even wearing shoes, as I can throw these on casually on errands and run around town looking chic. I chose these over the similar Stuart Weitzman Nudist Song heel and I will never look back. You will not get a better value for the style, comfort and price. Buy them now!!" —Monique Marshall

    Get them on Amazon for $38+ (though most seem priced at $44.99 or $99.90; the Sam Edelman site has them for $100. Color availability depends on your size; there are 33 colors and sizes 4-12, including half-sizes and wide options).

    10. Cut-out booties you can wear (almost) year-round, except on the coldest days of winter and the hottest days of summer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these little booties! I don't like to wear high heels often because they hurt my feet and ankles (I broke both of my ankles playing sports growing up so they care not the most stable) but I love the look of heels! These shoes are perfect because they give enough height to feel sexy and make my legs look amazing. But because the heels are chunky and not overly high, they're more comfortable than regular stiletto heels. I work these to work for 7 hours and they still felt tolerable, which for me is HUGE!Lennox Marie

    Get them on Amazon for $20+ (colors available depend on your size; sizes 5.5-11, 13 colors available).

    11. A pair of basic pumps that come in several different neutrals, so you can get just a one or two colors and wear them with basically everything you own.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This shoe is AMAZING. When I put it on this morning I could not wait to get online and tell you about it. I have to wear good shoes because of arthritis on my spine and feet. I have been wearing another brand that starts with Aero and they are good but this shoe has them beat. I am a LifeStride convert now. It does not even feel like a new shoe. If you are looking for a classy, dressy shoe that provides awesome comfort, this is it. It is also true to size and the heel height is perfect." —Deborah Sharpe

    Get them on Amazon for $14.97+ (color availability depends on your size; 25 colors and sizes 5-12 — including most half sizes and wide and narrow options — available.)

    12. A pointed-toe pump perfect for power-stepping your way through any part of life, whether you work in an office or just want to feel fabulous on date night.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have wide feet and a narrower heel so needless to say I've never found a pointy-toe heel that didn't leave me feeling injured within a short time of wearing them, the heels falling off my feet with every step. I'm so excited to say that these heels cause zero pinky toe pain and zero toe numbness and they don't slide off my feet! I wear a 7.5 wide and I ordered a 7.5 wide and they fit perfectly. The heel in back grips my foot so they stay on securely. This is a dream come true....for the first time ever (and I'm 57) I can wear a beautiful pointy toed high heel and feel totally comfortable. I placed a small foot pad in the ball of the shoe to increase the padding but that's my only minor issue. Thank you Naturalizer for giving us a wide comfortable heel!" —Tracy

    Get them on Amazon for $25.05+ (though most pairs are $46-$99; they retail at Naturalizer for $99. The color availability depends on your size; there are 18 colors, and sizes range from 5 to 12, including most half sizes, plus wide and narrow options).

    13. A strappy pair with a 1/4-inch platform, so you get the extra height without the extra woes of wearing heels higher than three inches.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I walked/danced in these for hours the day of my wedding and didn't take them off until the very end of the night. I was pleasantly surprised at how they transitioned from cocktail dress to formal lace gown. I never had an issue with the back strap coming unvelcroed and the straps didn't bother me until I'd been on my feet for literal hours. I should also note, I'm usually one who prefers wedges as I like a 'clunkier' heel and the stability that goes along with them. These shoes provided both of those things in a way that was much more appropriate for a formal event. The best part is, I can wear these again for future occasions, since they don't scream bridal. I searched months for wedding shoes, but it was definitely worth it to find these unexpected gems." —Kristin

    Get them on Amazon for $35.25+ (most pairs are around $60, which is comparable to the current price on Naturalizer's website. The color availability depends on your size; there are six colors, and sizes range from 4-12, including half-sizes and narrow/wide options).

    14. A pair of summery wedges you can count on no matter where your weekend takes you, from brunch to bars to the boardwalk.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    They are ~loud~, but that makes them fun!

    Promising review: "Not only are these shoes totally adorable, they are extremely comfortable even after hours of wear. I bought them to match a dress for my niece's wedding. They fit perfectly and I wore them for about 5 hours at the wedding, which included a lot of dancing and walking around. My feet didn't even hurt at the end of the evening. I am pretty picky when it comes to dress shoes because my feet tend to hurt almost immediately after many years of painful shoes. I can't wait to wear these again!" —Moosegirl67

    Get them on Amazon for $19.80+ (5 colors, sizes 5-9, though color availability depends on your size).

    15. Ankle boots with a just-subtle-enough layer of rose gold sparkles on them to give 'em a little bit of sheen.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Pros: True to size (I ordered a 6.5 and it fits exactly as expected.) The shoes appear to be well made — no left over glue or thread anywhere. The dye is consistent throughout the shoe, no blotches. I've worn these for a few weeks now and they're holding up very well. They are of average comfort — about what you'd expect for a boot with a heel. I can wear these for a few hours without complaint. And have I mentioned they're adorable? :) I'm usually leery of things with buckles, but these don't look cheesy and don't have that cheap look I hate.

    Cons: No real cons I can find. They're a decent price, fit nice, wear well. If I could tell the manufacturer anything, it'd be to add some padding on the heel so I could wear them all day long, but that's what store bought insoles are for. ;)" —2roos

    Get them for $16+ (colors vary depending on your size, sizes 5-11 and 30 colors) and some highly-rated cushioned insoles for $12.99+ on Amazon.

    16. Cork-heeled sandals ready and waiting for the next time you go out dancing, but also down to go to dinner with your best friend.

    Aerosoles

    Promising review: "I. Love. These. Shoes. I'm a 25-year-old who has had multiple hip surgeries in the past few years and when my I complained to my mom about not finding comfortable shoes to work in she introduced me to Aerosoles. I get so many compliments on these shoes! I can put them on at 7:30am for work, wear them all day and then wear them into the night for happy hour! Seriously... they're THAT comfortable." —Emily

    Get them on Amazon for $39.99+ (two colors in sizes 5-11 including half-sizes).

    17. A pair of cork wedges with a marshmallowy cushion so you can wear them for hours without thinking about your feet even once.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy Cow. I bought this pair of shoes in conciliatory fashion because the pair I really wanted were unavailable in my size. Color me surprised...I LOVE THEM. First, it doesn't even feel like I'm in heels. It's the perfect amount of lift paired with platform. My foot isn't painfully protracted and I'm not trying to balance on a pencil thin stem. I can't get over how comfy the foot-bed is and the adjustable strap makes getting the perfect heel fit so easy. GREAT BUY. Of note, I'm on the larger side of a size 7, so sometimes I size up to 7 1/2 and with these, the size 7 fit perfectly." —Melin08

    Get them on Amazon for $39.97+ (most are around $60-$70, a similar price to most wedges on the Clarks website. Five colors in sizes 5-12, including half-sizes and wide styles).

    18. Another not-too-heavy, solidly constructed pump with a layer of cushion in the sole to help keep your feet happy from sunup to sundown.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Gorgeous shoe! The leather is so soft. Actually it is the softest I have felt. The picture does not do it justice. It also has great support, the inner is also very soft and comfy in addition to supportive. Because the shoe is so beautifully crafted and the leather is so soft, it does not hurt my feet while walking in it (without pantyhose). The pantyhose may or may not help further. I highly recommend this shoe but I recommend you go up a half a size on your current work shoe if it is not a pointed tip shoe as this one is." —Akeela W

    Get a pair on Amazon for $9.99+ (many pairs around $30-50, color availability depends on your size; there are 22 colors and sizes range from 5-12, including some wide options).

    19. A low heel that ties at the ankle for extra stability disguised as something cute AF.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "Buttery-soft leather! So gorgeous and I get lots of compliments on them. The ties enable you to get a good fit whatever your ankle size. I was worried about the skinnier heel but I have no problem walking and balancing in them, even for longer periods." —gardengirl

    "Holds up to city walking. Tying them comfortably takes a bit of practice, but it's the first truly comfortable pump I've owned. They are just wide enough in the toe and do give a bit over time." —A.O.

    Get them on Amazon for $32.99+ (most pairs $40-80, compared to $89-99 on Franco Sarto; available colors depend on your size; sizes 5-13 and 14 colors).

    20. Block-heeled oxfords that are practically begging you to wear them with your favorite plaid skirts.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fits as expected with lots of room at the toes. Don’t believe for one second these aren’t comfy. I’m a hairdresser, I walk and stand over 8 hours a day. These are comfortable enough that at the end of my work day I have 0 discomfort or pain. I don’t typically ever wear a shoe with a heel so the facts that these cause no pain, have a heel, and I stand all day are awesome. Would recommend." —Ruelle

    Get them on Amazon for $23.99+ (three colors available in sizes 4.5-10.5).

    21. A pair of almost-sling-backs with a flexible strap that lets you jump, dance, run, and — most importantly — walk without any troubles at all.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "Excellent choice for a fashion shoe. I wore them today for the first time for 9 hours. Mostly on my feet at work. They are pretty to say the least and very stylish. Love them, as you can see in the picture, I wore them with some good ol' fashioned fishnet knee highs ;-)" —Denise

    "I have major foot issues so I buy and return many shoes before I can find one that is both stylish and comfortable. Well, this shoe is perfect and easily rivals a much more expensive pair. The heel height is also perfect. I have an average width foot but ordered the wide in case I needed to put in my orthotics. Turns out I do not need orthotics in these as they are comfortable right out of the nix and have enough room so my toes move freely. I am elated with this purchase!" —LuvCO

    Get them on Amazon for $25.49+ (sizes 5-11, including half sizes and wide options, two colors).

    22. A pair of pumps with an ankle strap (which will help support your ankles) and block heels (which are easier to balance in) that make these higher heels at least a little more bearable.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "They're very cute and very easy to walk in! I grew up playing in swamps and my balance is absolutely awful, so I'm not generally the type to wear heels — for both style and safety reasons. I trip and roll my ankles a lot! However, the base of these heels is wide enough that I don't roll my ankles, and I haven't tripped once! I did put a gel insert in the shoes to make them more comfortable to wear long-term, and that has worked very well. I also think they are absolutely adorable! I've never loved a pair of heels before! I highly recommend them, especially to women who have a hard time walking in heels." —Chrstina Norwood

    Get them on Amazon for $18.98+ (color availability depends on your size; sizes 5.5-10 and two colors, plus a second ankle-strapped style.)
