Stylish 8-Hour Shoes for Summer

Summer is for strutting your stuff outdoors. We love to embrace the warm, sunny weather and get our daily dose of vitamin D with leisurely strolls through the park, long walks during our lunch break and of course, plenty of shopping (window or otherwise). But none of these simple pleasures could be enjoyed without cute, comfortable shoes. Here are some sassy shoes for under $70 that you can wear all day long, pain-free—no joke!

Row One: Aerosoles from
Row Two: Indigos by Clark from
Row Three: Nanette Lepore for Keds from
budget babe, you are such a mind-reader!
i have the indigo clark's you show (row 2, left, the white ones), but in black suede. they are extremely comfortable and they give your feet exellent support. no squished toes in these babies. bytheway, they are on sale at the Clark's stores for 59.99! i commented on them in the laboutin article you wrote, because they have the cutest flower sole!

Great minds! That style is one of my all-time faves for style and comfort. They look great with jeans, capris, skirts and dresses. The t-strap combined with the ankle strap give you stability and as you said, won't squish your toes!

Some people hesitate to buy a heel, but that's what makes wedges so perfect--there is elevation, but the arch is a gradual incline, which equals great comfort.

Also, most of the shoes shown above come in different colors, so definitely click on the photos to see all the choices...and to see that hot flower sole, too! Just precious :-)

Budget Babe, this is awesome! I absolutely killed my feet the other week walking through the Taste of Chicago in some strappy wedges. Those Aerosole wedges look like the perfect solution to my next trek. Thanks!

Glad you like them! Those wedges should also elevate your toes just enough to keep them from touching the funk that inevitably accumulates on the hot, sticky, city streets during the Taste!!
