8 Summery Heels You Can Actually Walk In

Give your feet a break from stilettos.

It’s no secret that we love us a stiletto, whether it be a delicate pointed-toe pump or a feminine ankle-strap sandal—but there’s no way around the fact that we live in a city. A very walkable city. Which means we’re often faced with a dilemma: Wear the skyscraper heels and suffer the consequences? Or resort to flats and settle for bemoaning our lack of genetically gifted height? Thankfully, there’s another option: Behold, the chunky heel. All the extra inches; way less foot pain. Here, eight styles that perfectly fuse summer style with comfy design.

Top row: Sam Edelman Yuri beaded sandal, $134.99 at Piperlime; Shaky woven-heel sandal, $79.99 at Nine West; Edita color-block sandal, $332.50 at Tibi; Rachel Roy Fawn mixed-media sandals, $147.50 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Bottom row: Nicola nude leather sandal, $131.90 at Dolce Vita; Ella Moss Tessa City heel, $188 at Bloomingdale’s; Jovian color-block heel, $275 at BCBG; and Platform printed sandal, $79.90 at Zara.
