All You Magazine (March 2015 issue) is one of my favorite magazines, and they tracked down “comfy” versatile shoes for any occasion – ones that won’t rub, pinch or hurt! Time to trade in those ballet flats? The majority of the comfy shoes have 2 1/2″ heels, which is my favorite heel height to wear to maintain comfort.
Party Time – Comfortview Saffi Strappy Sandals, $50
Shimmery gunmetal acts as amped-up neutral. And extra padding at the toe and heel bed means you don’t need to swap these 2 1/2″ heels for flip-flops as the night goes on.
Busy Saturday – Dr. Scholl’s Molton Platform Wedge Sandals, $80
The contoured footbed keeps your heels stable for easy walking in these 2 1/2″ wedge sandals.
On The Town – Aerosoles Party Plush Wedge Sandals, $60
Stylish 3″ wedges offer nice height of a night out. Soft uppers hug the top of your foot for stability. And the wide fabric straps don’t run the way leather straps do.
Ready For Business – Sole Society Tamra Pointy Toe Pumps, $69.95
Pointy-toe shoes can wreak havoc on your feet. The key is finding a pair, like these suede, 2 1/2″ heels that boast plenty of room for your toes.
Make any heels more comfortable
That magazine suggests you lightly tape your third and fourth toes together. A nerve runs between them that can hurt under pressure (like when you wear high heels). This trick can relieve strain and pain. I personally think the tape around my toes would drive me nuts, but I’m finicky about my toes!
