As a New Yorker who walks everywhere, I’ve come to the realization that sacrificing comfort for fashion isn’t worth it. Stilettos may look great, but they can wreak havoc on your feet, especially if you’re pounding the pavement for hours on end. It’s time to say goodbye to the painful sky-high heels and hello to comfortable styles that can take you past the 10,000-step benchmark. Whether I’m running errands or heading to work, there’s no reason I should ever sacrifice comfort for fashion, and thanks to my favorite brands, I don’t have to.
From sleek sneakers to on-trend loafers and slide sandals, these comfortable shoe options are perfect for the woman on the go (aka me). So with that being said, I’m convinced that it’s time to say goodbye to the seven styles below and hello to their comfortable yet chic replacements. Your podiatrist can thank me later.
