They were made with a smooth folded edge that won't create raw spots on top of your foot and come in a trio of neutrals to cover every base. They're made of faux leather but many fans noted that the leather looks real. Available colors: 3 colors Available sizes: 5 - 13 3 This Chic Pair Of Sneakers With A Sock-Like Feel
You can't go wrong with a reliable
pair of sneakers, and Adidas knows how to make a great one. The Swift design features a lightweight, synthetic mesh upper designed to feel sock-like.

Several shoppers praised them for their style and comfort, agreeing that these are more elevated than your trusty gym kicks. "Fantastic shoe with great support and style offering a lightweight alternative," one review raved. Available colors: 25 Available sizes: 5 - 11 4 A Subtle Kitten Heel With Some High-Tech Insoles

The contoured microfiber insole boasts an additional layer of foam, with even more padding over the ball of the foot. "I absolutely love these shoes," raved one shopper who fielded several compliments, calling them "comfortable and stylish." (This is another option on the list that offers wide shoe sizes as well.)

"Such a great boot. The heel and slight platform are perfect. Comfortable for their height, sized just as expected," one recent buyer remarked. "I have very wide feet and a lot of issues that make it hard to wear normal heels, but I wear these shoes at least 3 days a week," another gushed. Plus, they're vegan-friendly to boot.
