You might still be searching for your New Year's Eve look and with winter weddings soon to follow, now's the perfect time to snag a few new sets of heels that you'll actually be able to stand in all night. No one should have to cut their fun short because of a pair of painful shoes, and yet, most party-goers have likely had this experience one or twice. Luckily, this season, it won't be you, as the most comfortable heels have been rounded up for you to shop — so you can finish off this year (and start the next one) on the right foot.
Now, while these heels will provide the comfort you seek, they also certainly don't skimp on style. Take the popular Editor Heel from Everlane: it has a sleek, modern shape but its low-heel and soft Italian leather interior will allow you to remain on the dance floor all night long. Available in four different shades, the $165 heels have been reviewed by over 540 costumers and have a rating of just under five stars.
While kitten-heel styles can provide less pressure on your feet and better stability, a block-heel can tick those boxes, too. The $355 Perfect Emma from Sarah Flint is a great example of a heel that brings an eye-catching twist to a classic, pointed-toe pump shape; however, it also offers added comfort with its expanded toe box, molded arch support, and extra foot bed padding. On top of that, this style is celeb-approved, as it's been spotted on the likes of Amal Clooney and Alexa Chung (among others).
For those shoppers looking for more height, consider a platform style like this Slingback Platform Sandal from Prada for $650. This chunky-heeled style has a low platform that'll give you the lift you're after without creating too steep of an angle. Plus, the double straps across the front of the sandal and the adjustable back-strap will make sure your foot stays in place as you make your way around the party.
