Arches, Rejoice! 18 Mid-Heel Shoes To Soothe Our Soles

Striking the right balance of "not too high" and "not too low" with your footwear is suddenly a whole lot easier this spring. Thanks to the popularity of the mid-heel shoe trend, we've got a brand-new roster of steppers to love — basically, they're super-chic soles that won't destroy our arches. And, they stack the right amount of height to still technically be considered pumps — which, in our books, is referred to as a sartorial slam dunk.
Because, let's be honest: Just about every time we leave our homes in four-inch clackers, we've got another, comfier pair of shoes stashed away in our bag. It's simply a matter of how long it'll take before we cave and swap in our trusty flats. But, with these styles, there's no need to go the extra-cautious route. Try out colorful block heels and slingbacks for a fashion-forward take on work shoes. For weekend, slip into strappy sandals and PVC pumps for a party-ready finish. Ahead, 18 totally wearable styles are now yours for the shopping — have at 'em!
