You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, ‘cuz remember, you’re a ~cool~ mom. And yes, you’ve still got it. Since you’re no longer heading out to da club at the wee hours of the morning, ankle-breaking stilettos are no longer a necessity (thank you, NEXT). Comfort is our favorite seven letter word these days, especially when it comes to shopping for sensible heels that we can wear all damn day—from brunch dates with the moms from school to networking luncheons to Friday night Salsa dancing lessons with the hubs (hey, we can dream).

At this point of our adult lives, investment pieces are what we’re after. It’s better to be picky than settle for something that’s going to fall apart in six months’ time. We know you’re not buying a car or anything, but girllll, you’ve got to check out the specs before you *add to cart.* According to Alexa Buckley, the co-founder of Margaux—a contemporary footwear brand for women on the go—there’s a few basic elements to look out for. “Besides the height of the heel, the most important factors for comfort are the shape—a thick, block heel will always offer more support than a spindly stiletto—and additional padding. Our special padding is an important part of all Margaux shoes, including The Heel. We do 5mm of a plush insole that makes walking in them incredibly comfortable,” she says.

Ahead, we’ve got you covered with nine walkable AND comfortable heels for work and play that were made for strutting (err, surviving work and then school pick-up). From traditional power pumps to open-toe heeled sandals to a trend-right mule, you’re guaranteed to find your sole-mate. Pun intended.
