It’s HERE! The HUGE Fall Round-Up of shoes you ACTUALLY want to wear and are ACTUALLY comfortable! I can’t tell you how excited I was after the Spring Comfort Shoe Round-Up to find out you guys LOVE Fly Londons and Comfortable Shoes!!! Who knew? Well…let me backtrack a bit…not all of you love comfort brand shoes (Ha!). They are a bit divisive in this fashion-mom world, but I was thrilled that many of you wrote in with your tales of why comfort shoes work for YOU! They work for me too!
Now to address a couple of concerns—price and style. Yes, they are ridiculously expensive and no, you aren’t going to find stiletto slouch boots in this post. As I have been excitedly rounding up fantastic Fall walkable shoes, my stomach sometimes drops at how expensive many of them are. Those of you who wear comfort brand shoes on the regular know, however, you almost always get what you pay for in terms of all-day walkability. I have tried to find brands at lower price points, but I keep coming back to my old standbys. They are made well, hold up well, and my favorite….don’t go “out of style” quite as easily.
HEAD’S UP: Shana and I will be trying on 20 PAIRS of these shoes and answering questions about our favorites on Facebook Live and Instagram Live (@themomedit) this Sunday, October 7th, at 4 PM EST. Please come with questions, comments and critiques!
Comfort shoes have come a LONG way in terms of style (the ones below are NOT your old-school-Dr. Scholl’s fastener shoes). Many comfort shoes, though, are designed to look cute or funky or classy-chic, but not necessarily super trendy. The pain is that if you are shopping for a super-trendy shoe that you can walk in, it’s difficult to find. The great thing, however, is that you can wear many of these shoes year after year because the styles of these brands don’t always change. This leads to a darn good “price-per-wear” (as Shana would say). I’m still wearing my Fly London wedges from years and years ago, and they have a very similar shoe to my originals in their line-up today.
Now, without further ado…let me introduce you….Drum roll, please….to our fabulous, amazing, stylish and most importantly — COMFORTABLE — selection of Fall Shoes! Shana and I could NOT agree on our favorites, so we decided to give you picks from both of us, and then the FULL Gigantic round-up. Warning….I had a really hard time not ordering 3 from each category!

One more thing…if all else fails in finding the “perfect stylish comfort shoe”, you can always throw a pair of these inserts into regular shoes. I have one pair and switch them out between different shoes; my husband does the same. They are AH-MAZING—a world of difference from the drugstore ones I used to wear.
Wishing you all happy, stylish and non-aching feet! Let me know what brands I missed — I’m always looking for a new comfy, good-looking shoe. AND, thank you to ALL of you who wrote in or commented with your own tales of transitioning to more comfortable shoes. I think it’s nice for those of us who demand comfort to know we aren’t alone.
