5 Comfortable Black Heels

5 basic black pumps

My friend texted me last week and asked, “Any recommendations for comfortable heels?” Why yes, yes I do. Black high heels are an essential closet staple that goes with just about any outfit. We’re talking about the classic black pump, the heels which go with any and every thing. These shoes are gonna get a lot of mileage so invest in the most comfortable pair. Here are five of the most comfortable black heels:

1. The Pointy Toe

Clarks’ Dalhart Sorbet is the quintessential pointy-toe heel. I like how the front topline of the shoe cuts horizontally across and the point is the right amount point. 3″ heel, cushioned – $139.95

2. The Round Toe

Trotter’s Signature Gigi is the ladylike round-toe pump. Although simple, it has a beautiful silhouette and a thin heel. Rounded toe means no pinching. 3 1/2″ heel, cushioned – $129.95

3. The Platform

Naturalizer’s Michelle features a comfy platform which helps evenly distribute your weight versus a 5″ stiletto.  And the classic almond toe gives the look of a pointy-toe with the comfort of the round-toe shoe. 3 1/4″ heel, cushioned – $98.95

4. The Suede Shoes

Corso Como’s Webster is made with soft suede, sophisticated enough for the office and beautiful with dresses. The slight angle in the topline adds subtle length to your legs. 3 1/2″ heel, cushioned – $138.95

5. The Patent Shine

Cole Haan’s Bethany is sleek and lightweight. From the side it looks like a pointy-toe but it’s actually an almond-toe heel. 3 1/2″ heel, cushioned – $248.00

A pair of basic black high heels are a must-have for your wardrobe. Black pumps go with just about every look so wear the most comfortable pair. Go for the classic pointy pair from Clarks or try the shiny patent from Cole Haan. What’s your favorite pair of heels?
