The most comfortable boots for women are those you can wear right out of the box and for days on end. And while we must admit we’re kind of suckers for trendy riding boots, they aren’t exactly ideal for walking...or even standing. Rather than put our poor feet through the aches and pains of yet another cute-but-toe-pinching experience, we’ve made up our minds to track down the most comfortable boots, from Merrell to Stuart Weitzman, for any occasion, be it a stroll through the park, a weekend hiking trip or a night of dancing, come rain, sleet or snow.
We sought out PureWow editors’ personal favorites, took note of podiatrists’ picks and heavily vetted customer reviews to find the la crème de la crème of comfortable boots, like the UGG Suede Lakesider Heritage boots (from
$150; $90 at Amazon) and the Hush Puppies Amelia Chelsea boots ($100) our editor-in-chief can’t live without come fall and winter. Without further ado, here are 17 styles that stand out from the pack and are well worth investing in.
