15 Fashion Week-Tested, Lucky Editor-Approved Pairs of Comfortable Heels

"My two go-to brands for comfortable heels right now are are Aquazzura (which I always get confused because of Altuzarra—the spelling confounds me!) and Gianvito Rossi. My last fashion week, I had a lot of great experiences with both those brands in terms of comfort. In terms of Gianvito, the pointed toe pump is really comfortable, and also super popular—I've seen a lot of my blogger friends wearing them. The style comes in great colors, and there's one pair that has this clear plastic cut out in the shoe that's really cool. My other favorite shoe, from Aquazzura, is a strappy, lace-up cage sandal; it's one of the brand's classic styles. I was able to wear them for 12 hours one day during September fashion week! Unfortunately it's too cold to wear them now, but I highly suggest investing in a pair for next season. It's worth it." - Eva Chen, editor-in-chief

Even with all the love our editors give flats around here (which, as you can see from this, this and this, is quite a lot), they can't deny the power of a great pair of heels. It's a shoe style guaranteed to make everyone look taller and leaner in a way that even the most flattering ballerinas can't, an instant confidence boost right before a big event, the difference between walking into a room and making an entrance. Who wouldn't endure a few measly blisters for all that?

Well, for starters, the 15 Lucky staffers in the slideshow above. Instead of suffering through long meeting, working lunches and after hours parties in pinchy, uncomfortable footwear, they've tracked down logic defyingly comfortable pumps and stiletto sandals that actually let them look and feel good*. Click through to see and shop 15 heels that won't hurt after five minutes (or five hours!).
