Heading into week three of your New Year’s Resolution (you are sticking to your new workout regimen this time, right?), everyday activities like brushing your teeth, putting on your pants and — yep — bending down to tie your shoes can be a workout on their own. And, even though we try to muster up the courage to squeeze our feet into a pair of heels, when morning comes, we’d rather slip into, well, anything else.
Enter moccasins: the no-tie flats that cover more than just your toes, making them perfectly appropriate for the colder months (especially when paired with thick-knit tights). Not only will a good pair of moccasins be ultra-comfy without the lounge factor of slippers, but they provide more support than ballet flats, and aren’t as clunky as your cold-weather boots. Because they’re a no-brainer for tired soles, we rounded up eight of our favorite modern-moc iterations. Click through for our picks!
