With all the hustle and bustle that comes with living in New York City, some say it’s impossible to wear heels. Commuting by train is stressful enough in flats, so who would be daring enough to wear heels? Sure, stilettos are beautiful and fun, but they can have you flailing to the ground in the Big Apple.
Don’t worry, we have some good news for you. It is completely possible to wear heels in the city without giving up comfort or style. As NYgals, we are here to give you the best fashion advice to help guide you through the city in shoes that you will love.
Here are some heels that you can actually walk in that look and feel great.
The best heels to walk in are chunky heels. They offer more support and will help you navigate through the rocky roads in the city.
These shoes by Steve Madden are perfect for any occasion. From the office to the bar, you can sport these adorable heels and avoid the blisters that come with skinny heels.
We know that Steve Madden can be on the expensive side, but don’t worry. DSW and other department stores sell them at a discounted price. Everyone can enjoy these comfortable and stylish heels.
Platform heels are easy to walk in because they support the top of the foot. You can go higher in the heel if you have a platform. So for the ladies that love a six-inch heel, this is the shoe for you.
Straps also make heels more comfortable to walk in. You don’t have to worry about these shoes slipping off your feet.
If you just need a bit of height for confidence, try on these wedge sandals. Wedges give you the height and style of heels with much more comfort. These Anthropologie sandals pair great with a sundress or skinny jeans. They will definitely get you around the city without the aching feet.
The best thing about Anthropologie is they are almost always having a sale. These cute wedges went from over $100 to just $45. Now that’s what we call a deal.
There’s a trend for businesswomen in the city and it involves kitten heels. They’re fashionable and versatile, making them the perfect on the go shoe.
They work for the office, a night out, dinner with bae, and so many more occasions. These bow tie kitten heels from Shein provide the flirty look without the six-inch hassel. And they cost less than $20!
Fall is just around the corner and that means it’s time to break out the booties. You’ll get the most support from ankle boots. These metallic heels from Zara will give you a walking boost with all the weather change we’ve been experiencing in the city lately. Rain or sunshine, booties work with every outfit.
If none of the heels above fancy your fashion, remember that you can always add insoles to all your favorite shoes. You don’t have to give up style for comfortability. Rock those high stilettos anywhere you want…then get a taxi.
