When it comes to footwear, it used to be you had to forfeit comfort for beauty. Thankfully, designers are finally marrying the two, so you no longer have to walk around in boring “comfort shoes” when you need to look good and be on your feet all day. What to look for? New York City podiatrist Emily Splichal, DPM says, “If you’re someone who is standing all day, you should look for a slight heel, which seems counterintuitive, yet it off-loads the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon — very important for foot health. Standing is actually really hard on the body, so having the slight lift off-loads those areas that get stressed from prolonged standing.”

Dr. Splichal also advises looking for shoes with built-in cushions, especially when you’re on hard surfaces like marble and concrete, because they act as shock absorbers which will help with extra impact; otherwise you could get plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, or just plain stinging and foot fatigue, because your foot is working harder than it should. Built-in arch supports are always good— especially if you have flat feet, which get tired more easily.
