Comfort Does Not = Ugly!

A common reaction from “fashion forward” people who have just heard the phrase “comfort shoe” is typically a disgusted look followed by a sentence including the word “orthopedic”.

I’ve set out to periodically show you the best “comfort shoes” for the fashionable woman. These shoes are great for walking, commuting, shopping days, or just looking good – you’d never believe they were “comfort shoes“…

The Best Flat

$79.95 $34.50 – $67.96

These win because they’re flexible, cute, and they come in 11 colors. Yeah. (I like the “Metallic Copper” color, personally.)

The Office Shoe

The Cute Wedgie

I love the criss-cross strap… And I have a thing for cork wedges – I know, I’m totally stuck in 2003.

The Bootie

Back to the basics of booties. Simple shape, simple color, good height… It’s all about the basics!

The Saucy Date Shoe

These come in a grey/taupe combo that would make it virtually impossible to feel anything less than totally saucy.

The Best Boots

These would be great beneath a dress for city girls! I love the equestrian vibe the top seam gives off.

Believe in comfort with style, ladies!
