The Hunt: Stylish Comfort Heels

comfortable heels for workSure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

One of our top pages of all time is our regularly updated Guide to Comfortable Heels — and while that guide includes brands outside of those that bill themselves as “comfort” brands, sometimes you just really want a heel that is built like a sneaker, whether for commuting, for long days on your feet, or for general foot problems.  Finding stylish “comfort” heels can be a challenge, though, so I thought we’d round some up.

Some of the Hall of Famers are pictured below:

Coffee Break: Samanta Women’s Nancie Pump

Samanta Women's Nancie Pump We’re liking this lovely pump from Samanta, a brand that we’ve never heard of before but apparently focuses on “stylish footwear with unique comfort features.”  (And they come in sizes as large as 13!)  The “Nancie” pump strikes us as a great basic — the slightly rounded/slightly pointy toe is a perennial classic, and the closed toe means you can get away with it even at the most conservative offices.  Lovely.  It’s $199 at in black, red, and brown.   Samanta Women’s Nancie Pump
