Walk a Mile in These 5 Super Comfy High Heeled Sandals -- I Did!

born sandals heels blackSummertime is probably the most active of all seasons, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort or style when it comes to your sandal choices -- not with so many "comfort" sandals on the market. While really comfortable, well-made shoes don't come at budget prices, your feet will seriously thank you for the investment in a pair of these.

I road tested several pairs of sandals with a range of heel heights, and what follows are my picks of the best five pairs! My three requirements? Comfort, stylishness, and a heel of some sort (no flats!). Can't wait to show you what I found!


I wrote to several shoemakers to see if they'd supply me with my choice of their stylish-looking sandals to road test -- because I would do that for YOU. I received several samples, walked them all about town and in my daily life, and I've narrowed down my favorites to share.
