Every single pair of shoes in our closet is purchased with a reason in mind. We love how comfortable our sneakers are and we love how chic our mules can be, and for the most part, we’re extremely pleased with all of them. The one time we’re not? When we’re looking to slip into a pair of heels. In a matter of seconds, heels have the power to help our legs reach supermodel status. It’s impossible not to love the look, but what’s not to love? How uncomfortable those chic heels can be.
When it comes to our heels, we try to stay optimistic. We continuously start off any day or night giving our heels the benefit of the doubt. We start out thinking “maybe this time will be different,” but always end up disappointed, in pain or both. See, similar to our favorite sneakers or mules, it’s always a tradeoff. Most chic heels are wildly uncomfortable and so-called “comfort heels” aren’t exactly stylish. But we found the perfect pair at Nordstrom, that are the full package and up the ante in the comfort and chicness departments.
The 1. STATE Saffy Block Heel Pump is comfort and style all wrapped into one. These pumps manage to tackle the biggest problem when it comes to heels — the actual heel itself. Most heels are flimsy, too thinly designed or both. Despite wanting to wear them all day and night, it’s often impossible to since they are simply not built for long wear. That’s why this heel is such a gamechanger. It’s looking to rewrite all of our heel horror stories of the past and give the comfort we need.
These pointed-toe pumps feature a chunkier heel that’s unlike all of those other uncomfortable ones. This heel style is great for anyone looking for a reliable shoe that won’t disappoint. Think of that blocked heel as a sturdy base that will protect our feet from the usual pain of walking and standing. This comfy heel is paired to perfection with a cushioned footbed that only makes these heels that much more comfortable.
While we’re swooning over how strategically designed this shoe is, we’re just as in love with the style. Pointed-toe pumps are a forever classic that we can wear anywhere. With several neutral colors and luxe patterns to choose from, the options really are endless. It’s impossible not to want to wear these pumps any chance we get and we can since this shoe is easier-than-ever to style!
For work or other professional settings, it will look as chic as ever with our blazers, trouser pants, and satin camis. For when we have a dressy event or fun night out on the calendar, these heels will look just as fashion-forward with any dress or jumpsuit. Plus, when we’re looking for an easy way to elevate any T-shirt and jean combination, again, these chic heels get the job done!
