15 pairs of heels you can actually walk (and maybe run!) in

Forget sling-backs and mules; they may be on trend but they never make me feel like anything other than an awkward teenager trying my mother’s heels for the first time. Ankle straps, a middle-height court and a good old block heel, on the other hand, make me feel sophisticated and chic without any crippling downside. Here’s my edit of shoes that have form form and function.
