With the sun finally shinning, its time to ditch the boots, free your feet of their winter captivity and let them loose with a amazing pair of comfortable shoes. There's nothing worse than a pair of uncomfortable heels. Even though they might make you look good while you're standing still, you definitely won't feel too fabulous if you think you're going to topple over every two seconds! And worst of all is the awful pain that they inflict on your feet. The painful blisters, cuts and cramps we self-inflict in the name of fashion - but it doesn't have to be that way. Banish all thoughts of 'clodhoppers' - this season, the most stylish shoes are also comfortable. And we rejoice!
Whether you're looking for the perfect pair of shoes to see you through this summer's occasions, or simple want a day-to-day pair you can feel comfortable in, we've found the best summer heels that don't only look amazing, but are super comfortable too. We love Dune's (opens in new tab) incredible varied selection - but these colourful mid-heel sandals are a firm favourite, and the perfect way to dress up a simple, plain dress.
Feel and look fab in your footwear this season with our top picks - we guarantee that there's something to suit all...
£70, Ravel (opens in new tab)
Pointed toe courts are the perfect pair of shoes to make your pins look endless. Have a fresh take on this style and check out these mint coloured pair from Ravel. The mid height heel and soft suede fabric will make these a breeze to walk in.
£110, Kurt Geiger (opens in new tab)
Wedge heels are wonderfully comfortable. The bigger sole means your weight is distributed more evenly and therefore won't hurt as much. Go seventies and partner with a flared pair of trousers and floaty blouse.
£70, Dune (opens in new tab)
These textured nude heels are the perfect day to night piece. Wear for days with a summery white dress or transform for evenings with a silky pair of culottes and patterned blouse.
£310, Miu Miu at Net-a-Porter (opens in new tab)
For height and comfort wrapped into one, the flatform is the shoe for you. Update your sliders with these espadrilles pair from Miu Miu. We love the glittery cross front, adds that extra bit of glamour to the every day sandal.
£125, Russell and Bromley (opens in new tab)
Give your sling-backs a stylish update with these block heel pair from Russell and Bromley. The larger heel will make them easier to walk in, plus the gold textured heel adds that wow factor!
£19.99, H&M (opens in new tab)
A wonderful white pair of sandals will see you through the summer months. Wear with a pretty floral dress or keep it casual with a light pair of boyfriend jeans. The best part of all is that the 4cm heel means that they won't kill your calves.
£38, Next (opens in new tab)
Although block heels might look a tad scary, trust us when we say that they are far more comfy than a normal flat heel. The wedge underneath the sole as well as the heel means that you are not actually arching your foot as much as you think - which equals more comfort.
£59, Topshop (opens in new tab)
Soft suede mules in a punchy pink tone - what more could you ask for? These shoes are ideal for jazzing up any simple ensemble.
£130, Reiss (opens in new tab)
Add a dash of high shine metallic to your footwear. These two strap block heeled sandals could easily accompany a 50's style in and out dress at your next big occasion.
£45, (opens in new tab)Wallis (opens in new tab)
Show your style savvy with a luxed up pair of lace up sandals. Team this tan pair with military greens.
£185, LK Bennett (opens in new tab)
Give your footwear a tropical spin this season with these pair from LK Bennett. Let them be the talking point of your outfit and wear with a block coloured dress. Pick up a colour from the print, like red, blue or green.
