The Different Styles Of Comfortable Shoes You Can Buy On Amazon
If you’re wearing casual clothes, your shoes should be casual. If you’re wearing formal clothes, your shoes should be formal. Shoes made of canvas, rubber, straw, or plastic are typically casual; shoes made of good leather or fine fabrics (satin, lace, tweed) are typically formal. Thick heels, cork heels, platforms, and wedge styles are typically casual; thin heels and simple silhouettes are typically formal.Note: flip flops are beachwear, designed for use near sand and surf. They are too informal for most casual clothes. Save them for the pool, the beach, and your backyard.
A pair of Dansko clogs that you may think are clunky and weird, but I promise you, they’ll look absolutely adorable on you!
These clogs have a dual density EVA footbed with memory foam for cushioning and support!
Promising review: “I broke my foot 37 years ago, and it left me with a bump/deformed foot, so I can only wear Mary Jane type shoes. These are so comfortable, so stylish, and so quiet for clog-type shoes! I have tried other more expensive clog-type nursing shoes, and they do not come close to the comfort of Dansko shoes! I love them!!!” —Amazon customer
Price: $124+ (available in sizes 5.5–12 and two colors)
Classic Birkenstocks because you’ve seen people wear these for years, and trust me, there is a reason they’re popular (they’re super comfortable). Do it. You know you want to. There are even 26 colors to choose from!
They feature pronounced arch support with an extra layer of super soft foam cushioning and a cork footbed that conforms to the shape of your foot the longer you wear them.
Promising review: “Fits like a dream. I’m in love! This is my second pair of Birkenstocks. I’m used to open-toe style sandals, but these are way more comfortable! I thought I would have to break them in, but they were so comfortable right out of the gate due to the suede top and the soft footbed. Trust me, they’re AMAZING!” —LorenaMae
Price: $89.95+ (available in sizes 4–15.5, narrow sizes, and 26 colors)
A pair of pumps short enough to provide some necessary comfort, but high enough to be like “Hey, see? I wear heels, mom!” —me, an adult.
Promising review: “I am not a big heels person – I work a professional job and attend a lot of meetings and do a lot of walking. I typically stick to flats or shorter heels when absolutely necessary. I love the way heels look but never seem to find them comfortable enough to endure all day. I ordered these LifeStride Parigi pumps and several other heels at the same time, but these were the CLEAR winner. They are so comfortable!!! I only really intended to wear them for one occasion, but they are so comfortable and stylish that I’ve worn them several days already.” —Erin D.
Price: $14.39+ (available in sizes 5–12, narrow, extra narrow, wide, and extra wide sizes, and 27 colors)
Sperry sneakers that will basically become your designated important errand shoes. By important errands, I mean your third trip to Target for the week.
Promising review: “I loved these shoes so much I ordered a second pair when I saw them on Amazon. They are sporty but don’t look too old or young. Love the laces. They have a padded footbed for added comfort!” —Pennsylvania Shopper
