We Wear-Tested These Shoes, and Yep, You Can Comfortably Walk Miles in Them
Ah, the ongoing struggle to find cute shoes that won't kill your feet and are wearable for hours without any pain. There's a delicate balance to a great pair of shoes, where style doesn't come at the cost of your poor little toes. And it's hard out here, given that more often than not those drool-worthy shoes you just *had* to have spend more time in your closet than on your feet. There's no greater feeling than when you stumble upon a fabulous pair of shoes that goes with any outfit and passes the comfort test. It's a victory that must be shared.
As fashion editors, we try all kinds of shoes, from the sandals having a huge moment right now to the fashion set's favorite sky-high platforms. And while we love experimenting with new styles, there are a select few tried-and-true pairs of shoes we keep returning to time and again that feel like a dream to wear. Trust—you're going to want to pay attention to the shoes these six editors can't stop obsessing over. Comfort has never looked so chic.
"I have these in both black and brown, and they are the definition of comfortable. They truly mold to your specific foot shape and also happen to go with everything I own. The cherry on top is that my stylish friend asked me if they were one of the designer collabs that Birkenstock does. They're definitely regular old Birkenstocks, but I think the statement buckle makes them look more premium."
"I'll say it forever—Zara makes great on-trend and comfortable boots. I wear my pairs for years, and they haven't steered me wrong yet."
"If I sound like a broken record about these boots, it's because my devotion to them truly knows no bounds. They are easily my most-worn shoes not only because the timeless shape goes with everything but also (and most importantly) because I can walk miles and miles in them. Living in NYC, believe me, I have the step count to show for it."
"Love heels but love comfort more? Meet the shoes you'll want to wear all spring and summer. I know because I did so last year, and they're at the top of my rotation list again for 2022."
"When I say that these are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn, I'm not exaggerating. I bought my first pair two years ago and have worn them so much that I just ordered a fresh new pair to swap in for my very worn-in sneakers."
"Since getting them, I've worn these cool and comfortable shoes approximately six days out of every week. Once you start, you just can't stop."
"This may seem obvious, but my Birkenstock Arizona sandals continue to be my favorite comfortable sandals of all time. They're easy to wear with practically everything in my closet, and they never let me down when it comes to walking long distances. It's hard not to buy them in every color and fabric."
