20 Heels You Can Actually Walk In

Between photo shoots, red carpet events, and international Fashion Weeks, we've had our fair share of footwear disasters. But we've also got enough experience to know which heels are going to be manageable and which ones...won't.
Before you roll your eyes at the idea of a "comfy" pair of sky-high shoes, hear us out. The truth is, comfortable heels do exist — and at every price point, no less. You just have to know what to look for. In hopes of saving you from one more painful blister or twisted ankle, we've sought out the most wearable pieces around. Sure, the 17 picks ahead aren't quite on the same level of comfort as your Nike Frees, but they are sturdy enough to wear for hours on end, and they'll (literally) never let you down. So bring on the summer weddings, hour-long commutes, and days packed with important meetings. With the right pair of heels, it's all a walk in the park.
