Comfortable shoes are a priority for me: I have a long commute to work, plus I generally enjoy using my most accessible form of transportation, my feet. Walking is how I destress, and just like any busy professional, (opens in new tab) working mom, and juggler of many responsibilities, I don't want to trip or be pinched by my footwear. (opens in new tab) I just don't have time for it. I find that it's best when shopping for footwear to go with classics, (opens in new tab) not trends (opens in new tab). So I've rounded up some comfortable shoe brands that have stood the test of time! For example, Dr. Martens celebrated their 60th anniversary last year because they make tried-and-true styles that are comfortable, cool-looking, and will never appear dated.

I’m Aya Kanai, Editor in Chief at Marie Claire. I am a native New Yorker (born and raised!), people think that’s weird but it’s actually NBD. Before I became a fashion editor I was a puppeteer, so yeah, I’m only qualified to work in a very few industries. I work in fashion but I don’t wear heels cause I’m already tall.
