Strappy heels can be your friend… and your foe. They’re plenty breathable during the dog days of summer, but questionable heights can leave you with aching feet by the end of the day. We’ve got you covered with block heels, kitten heels, platforms, wedges, and arch-hugging designs that are as comfortable as they are stylish.

1. Miss L Fire Color On Call Leather Heel ($165): These brightly colored beauties bring substance and style with a comfortable block heel. You’ll practically feel like you’re walking on rainbows when you strap them on.

2. Mango Strappy Espadrille Wedge ($67): If your arches are sore after a long day of walking in traditional heels, opt for a little more support with a wedge espadrille. They’re more stable than stilettos and just as trendy.

3. Nasty Gal More of a Grower Embroidered Wedge ($60): These are not your typical wedge heels. The additional floral embroidery gives just the right amount of flourish, whether you’re stepping out in a sundress or workwear.
