It’s happened to all of us: You pick out the cutest outfit to go with your brand-new spring sandals (chic but not overly trendy) and set out on your commute. Five minutes later, you feel a slight ache in the ball of your foot. Six hours later and you're cursing your shopping habits and frantically asking every coworker in sight for Band-Aids. Take solace. We’ve rounded up ten styles we know won’t kill your feet.

Orchard Mile

Embellished Block Heels

Before military jackets and denim, eye-catching accoutrements were hitting footwear. We love this walkable (read: two-inch) pair the most.

Michael Kors ($450)


Leopard Print Block Heels

This classic print is making a major comeback this season. Throw in on-trend embroidery touches and you've got yourself a serious winner.

Steve Madden ($100)


Fringe Mules

The open-back shoe of the season is even more fun covered in fringe.

Mango ($76)


Tasseled Lace-Up Pumps

Give your feet a festive lift with a lace-up heel.

Aquazurra ($775)


Scalloped Pumps

A closed-toe pump doesn’t have to be super high to be super ladylike.

Asos ($43)

Neiman Marcus

Stacked Heel Sandals

OK, we know this is hovering around three inches. But the thicker heel makes these shoes far more comfortable than their stiletto cousin.

Sam Edelman ($120)


Chunky Mules

Speaking of stacked heels, the rule goes: The higher the heel, the chunkier it should get for optimal comfort levels.

Kenneth Cole ($150)

Neiman Marcus

Floral Stitched Sandals

White heels can go a long way—with the help of white shoe polish.

Tory Burch ($325)


Lace-Up Gladiators

An option that provides adjustable security is a no-brainer.

Dolce Vita ($150)


Poppy Sandals

This bright style is the perfect addition to jeans or a midi dress. Just remember to spray them with a suede protector before your debut strut.

Louise Et Cie ($99)
