How To Choose the Most Comfortable High Heels You’ll Ever Wear
The right shoes are an important part of any outfit – but high heels can be a pain in more than one way. There are a few things you can do to mitigate the problems they can cause, though, meaning that you’ll be on your feet in fabulous comfort all night long.

Rounded toes are more comfortable than pointed ones, and it’s important to find a pair of heels that are wide enough for your feet. The type of heel is important, too – spike stilettos look great, but the most comfortable high heels of all are block-heeled court shoes. If you find a pair with a mary-jane style strap over the foot, you’re less likely to get rubbing and cramping from subconsciously gripping them from the inside to keep them on.
