Sacha London slingbacks: weddings or work

Special thanks to a kind reader who recommended Sacha London brand shoes to us! Sacha London makes stylish high heels with a vintage flair and with an emphasis on stability, elevation, and comfort. These suede slingbacks (and many of their pumps) have a thick platform under the sole of the shoe, which makes the height of the heel much more manageable. You get the height of a nearly 4 inch heel while really only enduring the pain of a 2 inch heel. As with all high heels, there is no arch support and they might run a bit narrow, but cheers to a comfortable and elegant option for weddings and for work.

HUE “No Show” Socks for Flats

If you experience sticky, sweaty feet when you wear flats with bare feet, try these low cut, “no show” liners made by HUE. The soft fabric is much thicker than panty hose material and will keep your feet dry and comfortable. They have both cotton versions and nylon versions (which are sheer but durable).

Hue liners come in several different styles, including their standard liners (made of cotton or cotton/nylon/spandex) and what they call “low cut” liners which are more likely to not be visible. If you have smaller feet, the standard liners may still peak out around your toes when you’re wearing flats. In that case, you’ll want to go with the low cut liners, which sit even lower around your feet but tend to be tighter in order to stay on.

There’s a small piece of silicone on the heel that keeps them in place, and they stay hidden inside your classy flats or dress shoes. All flats are different, of course, but they tend to be invisible with most of my flats.

I also wear these comfortable liners with sneakers or low profile casual shoes (Tom’s, Sperry’s, Keds, Vans, Converses, Sketchers) when I don’t want my socks to show.

Taryn Rose: pumps for pros

Thanks to Nevis from Canton, OH for writing in about Taryn Rose pumps! We love this brand for comfortable dress shoes – it was created by an orthopedic surgeon in Beverly Hills who wanted heels that had better cushioning and grip. Taryn Rose makes low wedges but also 3-inch pumps for those who want the full high heel look while retaining some semblance of comfort. We love the soft construction and stylish look of their designs.

LifeStride pumps: Mid-size heel, modern pointed toe

Thanks to Kerry S. from Bloomington, IN for sharing her recommendation on these Klarissa pumps from LifeStride.

It’s so difficult to find a stylish heel that is reasonably priced, soft and flexible, has a modern pointed toe, and is not too high. These mid-height heels are really comfortable for the office and fabulous for going out in the evening.

We love these practical pumps as well as LifeStride’s equally comfortable mid-height slingbacks from this recent post!

Tsubo: pressure points on your sole

A big thanks to Core from Austin, TX for recommending these lovely pumps from Tsubo, a brand for the “fashion conscious and comfort-driven.”

Tsubo is Japanese for “pressure point,” and each shoe contains oval bubbles on the sole at different pressure points of the foot. I’ve never worn Tsubos before but the rave reviews for their flats, boots, and wedges have also peaked my interest! What a great find!

ECCO pumps: classic and reliable

Thanks to Elle W. from Seattle for recommending ECCO pumps, a well-known comfort brand that is easily found in most malls. Some of their pumps can look a little chunky, but the selection is so large that you can usually find a range of heel heights and colors that match your preferences.

The good news is that ECCO tends to be a more affordable brand that updates their selection fairly frequently, so if you don’t find something you like on your first visit, you can check back later to see what’s new.
