Shopping for the perfect pair of shoes often comes down to finding that balance between comfort and chicness. Sometimes, we, myself included, just end up settling for one or the other. But yes, function and fashion can mix when it comes to footwear. On that note, I asked my fellow fashion editors to share their go-to shoe pick that's not only forward and cool but also actually comfortable.

Below, you'll uncover the six shoe selects that are front-runners in the eyes of fashion editors, complete with intel on why. You'll notice everything from stylish loafers to top-notch sandal options. 

I also went through my favorite retailers to find other shoe options (non-sneakers for the purpose of this story) that are chic and appear to be quite comfortable based on customer reviews. I included the actual customer testimonials for the shoes in question below to showcase the styles further. Keep scrolling for more.
