15 Comfortable Heels To Wear On New Year’s Eve So You Can Ring In 2017 With Ease

Just like that, the end of the year is upon us. Time flies when you're slaying 2016, I guess! While I could go on and on being sentimental about 2016, with the New Year comes New Year’s Eve, and with New Year’s Eve come parties and social gatherings like no other, which means you're going to need a comfortable pair of heels to get you through the night (and day!)

I don’t know about you, but I have definitely spent one too many New Year’s Eves dressing for style rather than comfort — which, to my dismay, has never been a good decision. From making the rounds at a party to trekking through the snow and ice, if there’s one thing you should do on NYE, it’s wear sensible shoes. I’m not saying you have to wear snow boots, but who said you can’t be smart and stylish?

So in the event that you have a party (or a few!) coming up as this year comes to an end, I’ve rounded up some of the perfect shoes that’ll keep you comfortable while maintaining your NYE fashion throughout the entire night, no matter what kind of event you’re going to. Your feet will thank you.
