Beauty Isn’t Pain: The Most Comfortable Heels in 2021

The old beauty is pain sentiment just doesn’t ring true anymore. Many women just aren’t as willing to sacrifice their feet to an evening of blisters, bruises and rolled ankles to look good. While for many years, comfort was restricted to shoes that not even your grandmother would want to wear in public, these days, more and more brands are blending comfort and style into their heels. From heels with supportive insoles to extra layers of shock absorption, these are some of the most comfortable heels that you can buy.
