When you hear ‘comfort shoes’, you probably picture footwear that feels so great you don’t want to take them off your feet…but nor do you want to wear it anywhere other than the corner store.
Don’t believe us? We’ve picked out some of the best styles for your life moments – big and small, at home and away.
If you have a special event coming up but you dread the idea of wobbling while you’re walking or standing up for ages in heels that give you no support, this Supersoft by Diana Ferrari pump could be your new best friend.
The Linden Black Patent Pump is part of the Supersoft by Diana Ferrari range, and its fans love it for how smart it looks while also being really comfy. One reviewer said, “From day one I could wear them all day and they are so comfortable I have worn them to work every day since.” And she’s not the only one.
Meeting up with the ladies for a cuppa at your local cafe? Ditch the car and get some fresh autumn air in a pair of Easy Steps Ratio Glove Sneakers.

We are in love with these classy pumps in the Supersoft by Diana Ferrari range. If you ever thought slip-resistant couldn’t be sexy, the Janina pumps prove you wrong. Available in nude, navy or black, the elegant design is perfect for both work and play.
The memory foam cushioning and a soft-touch foam lining make them easy to wear if you are moving around a lot – in fact, a Sydney woman who bought them for her mother to wear to her wedding said, “They were so comfy we couldn’t get her off the dance floor all night!” Read more reviews here.
Just because you’re at home and want to be comfortable, doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. This Supersoft by Diana Ferrari shoe is crafted from supple suede and premium leather so you can rest assured it lives up to its name.
The side zip for ultra-easy entry, arch support and slip-resistant rubber sole make it suitable for a relaxed day in, but the metallic accents and trendy colours mean you won’t need to swap them for something else when you go out. You can keep things light with rose gold or go for the more subdued blue suede or olive options.
With nearly 300 people giving the Go Walk Joy sneakers by Skechers a star rating of 4.4, you know this is a winner. One happy customer said, “These shoes are awesome. I’ve bought 3 pairs.” (Read the other reviews here.)
The mesh fabric upper keeps them breathable, while the innovative 5gen midsole design makes walking a pleasure – so they’re perfect for holidays where you’ll be doing lots of walking. And the best part? They’re also ridiculously affordable.
If you’re sailing in tropical waters, Sandler’s Alamo Elastic Sandal are a must-have. They feature flattering elasticated straps, an easy slip-on design and a practical wedge heel for added support while you’re out and about.
Versatile enough to be worn with nice dresses for dinner or trousers for sightseeing, they are perfect for looking great on holiday without testing your luggage limits. These wedges are available in classic black as well as gentle blush or pewter.
As the weather gets colder (or if you’re heading for chillier climes), you’ll probably be breaking out your jeans again – which means you need a pair of low-heeled boots to match.
The Sandler Miller Taupe Glove Boot features a low 5cm heel for comfort as well as a slick leather upper reminiscent of ye olde western style. It also comes in black or mid brown if you prefer a more low-key look.
If you’re embarking on a summer adventure, these slip-on flats could be the perfect companion. Round-toed and designed using contour technology, they won’t pinch your toes or strain your arches while you sightsee.
Sightseeing, but don’t fancy sneakers? Iconic brand Hush Puppies has the solution for you. Their Loren flat shoes are fitted with luscious memory foam from top to bottom for softness and shock absorption, while the sleek leather look will be stylish wherever you’re walking.
