When it comes to footwear, we all have shoes we hesitate to put on . . . and can’t wait to get home and take off. Sometimes this was completely obvious from the start (but we hoped things would get better), or we bought them for a special situation where we planned to be mostly seated. No matter our justification at the time, it’s safe to say they won’t ever see much action when we do get up and go again.
But, you know what? It doesn’t have to be like that. There are shoes that are totally cute and comfy, sometimes straight out of the box. Flexible, memory-foam soles are a good place to start, as are soft materials that won’t rub in all the wrong spots. Whether you love sneakers, sandals, or flats, there’s a pair of cushy shoes for you right at Nordstrom and, yes, we’re sure, since we combed through hundreds and hundreds to find the most comfortable ones.
