Give your sky high heels a break and opt for fashionable flats instead. They’re comfortable, highly functional and you don’t have to worry about being in pain the whole time you’re wearing them.
Here are the 10 pairs of comfortable shoes that every woman needs:
Whether you’re a little quirky or love classic designs, there are a pair of leather loafers out there for just about anyone and they give you a comfortable break from wearing heels.
Depending on the colour and style, they can go with just about anything in your wardrobe. Whether it’s a pencil skirt or flared pants, they easilly pull your outfit together.
Leather loafers, $965, Nicholas Kirkwood
They’re comfortable and match with just about anything you have in your wardrobe. Plus, they’re a little more chic than flip flops.
Lace-up open-toe flats, $75.90, Charles and Keith
We recommend getting a pair of white sneakers and keep them as clean as possible. They can take you from the office to the weekends and you’ll still look stylish wearing them.
2950 white sneakers, $63.90, Superga
Basic flats will help you when you’re rushing out of the house but want to look put together. They may be nondescript and purely functional but they can be chic too. This is especially so when you’re wearing something statement making like a brightly coloured dress or one that’s full of patterns.
Plus, depending on their shape (pointed or rounded), they channel a different vibe that could give your look more substance.
These flats are also the ones you wouldn’t mind getting a little wet in the rain or a little dirty.
Velvet ballet flats, $36.90, Topshop
Dressy flats will save you when you’re required to wear shoes a little dressier but don’t quite want to wear heels.
They’re there for you when your basic flats just don’t cut it and want to look exceptionally statement making. They don’t always have to be expensive either!
Flats, $1,158, Miu Miu
They’re a little dressier than your regular sandals and are perfect for wearing when you’re on holiday. Plus, because they’re dressier, they can take you from the beach to an upscale restaurant easily.
Women’s slipper, $135, Soludos
Depending on the style you’ve picked, they can go with just about anything in your wardrobe. We recommend going for colours like black, brown or grey for easy matching and pairing.
Be sure to get a pair that’s easy to slip on and off and ditch all the added buckles.
Grey boots, $69.90, Dorothy Perkins
Much like dressy flats, dressy sneakers can also elevate your style when you’re feeling particularly fancy.
There are plenty of options to choose from when you’re out shopping so be sure to take your time and really consider a style that fits you.
Sneakers, $140, New Balance
Jelly shoes might take us back to our childhoods but with brands like Melissa and Jelly Bunny making them look tres chic, who could say no?
They’re also really easy to clean and if you’ve ever been to an outdoor concert before where grounds can easily get muddy, you’ll be thankful for them.
Sandals, $110, Melissa
If you absolutely need to add some height block heels are your best bet. They’re comfortable, stylish and can work on the weekends too.
Open- toe wedge sandals, $49.90, Charles and Keith
