Three Pairs Of Shoes To Try The Next Time Your Feet Hurt

Insanely comfortable footwear that won't slack on style.

What does a loafer, a sneaker, and a boot have in common? They are all crazy comfortable. 

I’m no stranger to painful shoes in the name of style. But seriously, once you slip into something that caresses and cushions your soles, it literally gives you that extra bounce in your step. Here are three pairs to sort your weekend game, without losing you any points in the looks department.

1 | Nike Mayfly 

These Moccasin-inspired hybrids are so super light, you might not quite believe it when you pick up a pair and throw it about like a rugby ball (which is exactly what happened at the Esquire office when someone’s online nike shopping haul arrived). With a soft suede upper and Pylon midsoles, you’re looking at your next best travel buddy.

2 | Redwing Heritage

You are looking at six inches of premium Red Wing Oro Legacy leather combined with Goodyear welt construction, a Traction Tred rubber outsole and triple stitched quality. And since they were originally designed with the aim of being easy on your feet all day, you can be sure that comfort is a priority.

3 | Tod's MyColors Gomminos in nubuck 

With a soft, flexible construction and it’s iconic gommino sole, Tod’s has perfected the casual loafer both in style and comfort. With almost a gazillion colors (ok we exaggerate but it does seem like it) to choose from and a variety of leathers, including this superset nubuck, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
