If you love heels, but hate the pain they sometimes inflict on your feet, we’ve found comfy stylish shoes that won’t torment your toes.
The trick to finding the right pair is to scout out a subtly arched sole. If it’s too high, your feet will be under pressure.
Also, the thicker and flatter the surface area of the sole of your shoe, the less pressure put on your foot. Rummage through our guide of this season’s must-have comfy shoes to find your dream pair…
