8 Comfortable High Heels You Can Stand in All Day


At my first job after graduating from college, I wore heels all the time. It was at a museum and I was always walking around the huge space and spending a lot of time on my feet. I quickly realized that comfortable high heels were just as important as stylish ones, and I was constantly on the lookout for shoes that would check both of those boxes. Luckily, there are actually options out there that will keep you looking and feeling great. Here are eight of the most comfortable high heels you can buy—from pumps to block heels—that are as easy on your feet as they are on the eyes.
