Wearing a pair of shoes that make you feel uncomfortable or cause you pain is the pits. Cute and comfortable shoes are a must-have for anyone who's on their feet all day or those who lead an active lifestyle. The only thing worse than wearing painful shoes is knowing that you have to suffer for many more hours, while your feet are pinched, blistered, and rubbed raw. There comes a time when bandaids seem pointless and you wish you utilized your gel pads as precautionary measures, because they can't turn back time now the damage is done.
Vacation shoes can soon turn into devilish footwear from hell, trapping your tootsies in a torture chamber of pain. These kind of shoes are often bought last minute, because they look cute and you hope they'll go with everything else in your suitcase. The problem is, you don't often have time to wear in this fancy footwear and by the time you arrive at your destination, it's far too late. Your nature walks or meanders into the hive of your holiday resort soon turn into marathons, where you feel like you're running shoes are made of fire. The most frustrating thing is, you probably couldn't pack many pairs of shoes, so you may be stuck in a pair of (literally) killer heels for the rest of your trip. No one should have to suffer pain for beauty, so here are some super cute shoes you'll find comfort in.
