The Frisky’s Ultimate Guide To Comfortable High Heels

A couple months ago I wrote a post about my latest pair of painful high heels (seriously, my toenail is still bruised from wearing them for three hours!) and begged the Frisky community for help finding a pair of truly comfortable heels. You guys delivered with some awesome brand recommendations that I’ve been meaning to compile into a list–complete with online shopping links–for quite awhile. Thanks again for all your suggestions, and now, without further ado, I present The Frisky’s shoppable guide to comfortable high heeled shoes…
