Footwear is one of our favorite categories to shop — but when it comes to shoes, pain doesn’t have to equal beauty. There are certainly heels and other types of footwear on the market that are stunning but truly uncomfortable to wear all day — especially while walking or working. But doesn’t mean that there isn’t an equally as gorgeous pair of shoes out there that won’t hurt your feet!
With that in mind, we’ve been on the hunt for pair of shoes that will satisfy your every need and be extremely easy to wear in the process. Whether you’re looking for a comfortable everyday shoe, a slip-on shoe, a walking shoe, an office shoe or a pair of heeled sandals, we’ve selected sleek options that will provide your feet with the comfort they need. Check them all out below, and get ready to upgrade your shoe game in 2021!
Most Comfortable Everyday Sneakers
Whether you’re running a quick errand, going for a walk or even want to get a quick run in, these wool sneakers from Allbirds are the ideal sneaker. They are incredibly comfortable and flexible, plus they impeccably support the foot. This shoe works for anyone who’s on the go regularly and wants to stay stylish in the process.
Most Comfortable Shoes for Walking
These bestselling sneakers from Cariuma are the perfect walking shoe. They have a low profile and can match tons of different looks. They are made from a breathable canvas material and they are very lightweight. These sneakers consistently sell out fast, so you know that they are fan-favorites for a reason!
Most Comfortable Office Shoes
Rothy’s shoes are celebrated for their no-break-in-necessary comfort. You can walk in them immediately after you pull them out of the box, and we absolutely love these adorable pointed flats for the office! The bright red color stands out and adds a bold accent to your work wardrobe, and they are made from a comfortable knit material that’s perfect for the 9-to-5 grind.
Most Comfortable Slip-On Shoes
Birkenstocks — need we say more? These sandals have been a comfy shoe staple for decades now, and with seriously good reason. The cork footbed is contoured to the foot for support, and the leather straps are both comfortable and supportive. These are the ultimate travel and everyday slip-on shoe!
Most Comfortable Shoes with Heels
If you want a comfortable pair of heels, you need to go low. These heels from Naturalizer have just the right amount of height to make you feel like you’re actually wearing heels — without going overboard. They have an ankle strap that wraps around your leg in two different ways, which is an important detail that allows them to be as comfortable as they are!
Most Comfortable Shoes for Nurses
These shoes are an obvious choice for nurses and medical professionals — and it’s easy to see why! Crocs are lightweight, breathable and made to support the foot in the best way possible. You can wear these shoes all day and not feel any added fatigue or stress on your feet. They definitely make those long 12-hour shifts a bit easier!
