20 Comfortable Heels You Can Dance In Without Hurting Yourself, Just In Time For Prom Season
A host of festive soirees are just around the corner, not the least of which are graduation and prom. It's time to pop on your dancing shoes in preparation for the celebration, and by dancing shoes, I do mean heels you can actually dance in . If you possess even a minor interest in stilettos, you likely understand the impulse to slip on the tallest, pointiest, and most arch-injuring heels for black tie occasions. However, doing so only ends in tears as you hobble wincingly to the side of the dance floor, leaning on the shoulder of you date because your shoes are meant to be admired, not twerked in. If you wish to have the best of both worlds, that is, heels that are visually arresting and movement-friendly, read on for 20 of the best options on the market.
