    1. Platform pumps featuring foam padding so you can boogie-oogie-oogie all night long without the pain that normally comes with heels this high.

    Promising review: "I ordered these shoes to arrive on a Thursday to wear to TWO weddings that weekend. I didn't get to try them on before the first wedding, so I brought back-up shoes just in case. These shoes fit perfectly and were comfortable enough to dance in two nights in a row. Really glad I ordered them. They are super cute, too." β€”RZen

    Get them from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and three colors)

    2. Lightweight yet ~chunky~ T-strap platform sandals that you won't even feel as you disco until sunrise.

    Promising review: "Walk all day and dance all night. These shoes were the most comfortable platform sandals I’ve ever worn, straight out of the box. I was leaving a cold climate to vacation in a warm one, so hadn’t broken in these shoes at all and immediately was walking long distances over uneven streets with no problem. My feet never hurt. These sandals are sassy, and look as good or better than advertised. Easy to dress up your outfit and remain comfortable." β€”frequentcustomer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.90+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and three colors).

    3. Cut-out ankle boots with a small but mighty heel. Some lesser boots were made for walking, but these boots were made for springing into a moody line dance whenever a Kacey Musgraves song comes on.,

    Reviewers suggest going up a half size for the perfect fit.

    Promising review: "After reading reviews, I went up a half size, which was a great idea because they fit perfectly! My foot tends to be a little on the wide side in the front, but not wide enough to actually purchase wide shoes. They are extremely comfortable and look great. I am very happy with my purchase." β€”Lisa

    Get them from Amazon for $30.21+ (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors).

    5. Heeled knitted booties so your feet can wear a literal sweater while shuffling off to Buffalo. Or β€” like one reviewer who swears by these babies β€” Coachella. Follow your heart!


    Reviewers suggest going up a half size for the perfect fit.

    Promising review: "These are so comfortable. I got them in a size 7 but had to exchange them for a 7.5 because they run a little small. I wore them to Coachella and they didn't hurt my feet at all, are super easy to clean, and I got tons of compliments! Love love love." β€”Gabs1995

    6. Slingback kitten heels whose cheery color will make any dance you do in them a Happy Dance.


    Promising review: "Oh my god. If your favorite slippers came in a high heel version, it would be these. These shoes are like CLOUDS. The upper is soft and very flexible, and the sole is padded. No break-in period. And are blisters even possible in these? I think not." β€”Krista

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and 19 colors).

We did county swing dance for our first dance, and I was even able to do a backflip in these. I have had these shoes for a year now, and I wear them almost every day! They have held up really well, they've gotten a little scuffed up, and they're starting to show some wear and tear, but they still have a lot more life in them." β€”Allyson Brackett

    Promising review: "Love love love this purchase! I got the black suede boots. Fit is true to size. I’m 5’7 and the boots come up about 2 or 3 inches above my knee. Gave them a test run on a night out, and to my surprise they were so comfortable I had no problems at all wearing them all night even with good amount of walking and dancing. Well-made and absolutely worth the money spent! I will be ordering more pairs in different colors!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.50+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 10 colors).

    13. Strappy flats that have palpable "fun guest at a wedding" energy. Look at these shoes. It's undeniable. They love to do the "Cha Cha Slide."

    Promising review: "I love these shoes. I can never find flats that don't rub my heel. Recently I've developed a bone spur on the joint of my right big toe, so most flats also hurt in that area as well. Not these shoes. They are super comfortable. No rubbing or chafing. I can walk in them for hours." β€”Sparkletastic

    Get them from Amazon for $16.50+ (available in sizes 6–11 and four colors).

    14. Dansko clogs you could literally clog in if you really wanted to. I have several pairs of Danskos and they are my Certified Groovin' Shoes, they're so comfy. And trust me, I go HARD.

They don't take up too much space in my bag, and the sole is cushioned a little so I don't feel my feet hitting the ground too hard. I used to spend tons of money on more expensive brands, but I honestly went through them too fast. These are cost-effective and comfortable. Very happy with them and I plan to buy back-ups." β€”Mars Leigh

    Promising review: "I have a VERY hard time finding flats that don't destroy my feet, and the first time I put these on I was amazed at how nicely they fit! These flats did not rub or cause blisters AT ALL. They have a little cushion of support in the sole, which my mid-arch appreciates. My only concern is how long it'll last before these flats stretch out and start slipping off my heels, but I always have that issue. Would recommend, would buy in other colors." β€”Hannah Schlueter

    Promising review: "These boots are sooooooo comfortable! It's hard to find heeled booties that I can walk in all day and night in. The boots are perfect for someone with wide feet (like myself, size C/D width). They don't look cheap, but don't look extremely expensive either. I didn't need to break them in or anything before wearing them for a long period of time. The size 7 fit perfectly for anyone that is a true 7 with enough room to wear thicker socks or thinner depending on your preference! Love these booties so much. They're just in time for fall and winter!" β€”Sharon Adickes

If you are on the fence about getting yourself a pair, don't be! These shoes are truly one of my all time favorite dance shoes! True to size, very well cushioned, and so beautiful. Great price for the quality!" β€”Cyn

    Promising review: "I have wide feet in the toe area with a bunion. This shoe is so cute. No discomfort at all. I usually wear a little-hidden footy sock but with these shoes, it isn't necessary. I have already got a second pair on order. I plan to wear these during all seasons." β€”JLOVEALL

    Get them from Everlane for $115 (available in sizes 5–11 and 16 colors).

    You've got your comfy shoes β€” now get dancin'!
