I know that if I want to maximize comfort when it comes to my sandals, they usually have to be flat. And if I want to wear heeled sandals for anything that requires more than a few hours of commitment — and some walking — well, I better just grin and bear it.
That’s what I thought, at least, until I found these cute Steve Madden platform wedge sandals — shoes that give me some height AND are crazy comfortable. I was skeptical at first, but I did my research online, and the reviews were stellar everywhere I checked. I immediately bought them and haven’t looked back since. Being my first pair of platform sandals since the ’90s, I was amazed at how comfortable and walkable they were. When I first posted about these on Facebook, one of our readers, Tracy asked a terrific question: are these, like, walking around Target comfortable or are they spending a day at Six Flags comfortable?
So, I recently did an all-day walking tour of Versailles while visiting France (my equivalent of Six Flags) to really test them out. From the palace, through the gardens and around the town square, these babies never let me down.
For more casual, everyday looks, I’ve been pairing these platform sandals with my favorite pair of jeans and a tank. Easy and cute.
Cute, Comfy Platform Wedge Sandals For Everyday
Sandals: Steve Madden Bandi Platform Wedge Sandals. More color options at Nordstrom. (Size: 7.5, TTS for me) I love the black and white geo-stripe options at Nordstrom so much that I just ordered my second pair of Bandis. (Obsessed much??) Important note: Nordstrom suggests ordering one size up, as they tend to run small, but I found that my regular size fit just fine. My feet are on the narrow side, so take that into consideration when you buy.
Top (similar): DL1961 Tiered Cami Top. This similar style top to the one above is on SUPER sale right now at Bloomingdale’s where it’s currently 55% off and miraculously still fully stocked!
Jeans (similar): AGOLDE Jaime Hi-Rise Classic Jeans. AGOLDE has been my absolute FAVORITE brand of denim for several months now. I especially love the vintage styling and the light distressing on this pair. Plus, AGOLDEs are SO comfortable. I really can’t say enough about this brand. I’d highly recommend the Nico Hi-Rise Slim Fit Jeans, too.
