When it comes to my footwear, comfort is non-negotiable. But neither do I want to sacrifice style. And as someone with (increasingly) finicky feet, it’s not always easy to find both.

Many thanks to Macy’s for their partnership on this post! They provided me two pairs of shoes from Clarks to try. Clarks shoes are well-known for comfort. But I was genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised by just HOW comfortable these styles are. Both passed my ultimate test: I wore each pair for hours at a time and completely forgot about my feet. And they looked great!

I’m a big fan of loafers. They’re a classic style that dresses up or down, and are a favorite for travel. I chose this pair (gifted) in black patent as they’ll go from day to evening with ease. And they’d be a great addition to an office wardrobe. Offered in Wide widths too.
I like sandals that add a bit of height and “visual volume” to balance out my dusters and longer cardigans, so decided to try this cork wedge style (gifted). They’re available in several other colors too, as well as widths. I think these run a little bit small, so went up ½ size from my usual sandal size. The actual heel pitch is only 1½ inches, well within my comfort zone. They feel very stable, even with the platform.
Saturday farmers’ market run…
These sandals would also look great styled with this season’s fuller skirts.
