Chic shoes for tired feet (that aren’t trainers!)

The most comfortable and chic shoes I ever bought were from Maje, so I’m pretty certain that these gorgeous biker boots will be just the thing for well-walked feet. I spotted a friend of mine wearing them last week, and the look even better on. Admittedly, they don’t scream summer, but buy them now and save them for September. They’ll feel even more special after being stored away for a few months.

Leather ankle boots, €350 at Maje

Texture is so important to any outfit, and that’s one reason why I love these & Other Stories dusty pink loafers. I recently travelled to Stockholm and met one of the brand’s shoe designers, and having been talked through the design processes there, I’m convinced of their shoes’ comfort. Plus, one of the designer’s colleagues was wearing this particular pair that day and she seemed nothing if not comfortable on her feet. These are on my wish list for summer.

I’ve yet to try an ankle-strap shoe that wasn’t comfortable, especially when the strap is thick and sturdy like this one. It will provide great support for weary feet, without detracting from the elegant cut of the shoe itself. I also love this poppy shade of tangerine; perfect for brightening up neutrals in spring.

Ankle-strap pointed toe shoe, Attico, €480 at net-a-porter.com

Okay, you’re going to love or hate these sock boots… but paired with silk jogging-style pants, they can work really well, and your feet will never get tired. Ever.

Toucon sock boots, €38 at Topshop
