Chances are, you've got a lot of friends and family members who are getting married right now. Translation? Your 2022 wedding season schedule is packed, and you know what that means—it's party time. Your friends and family are working seriously hard to plan these weddings, so it's only fair you show your appreciation by having as much fun as physically possible on the dance floor.

Sure, you could kick your shoes off at a more casual wedding, but you'll score major style (and safety) points if you have a solid pair of heels, sandals, or flats that are just as comfortable as they are stylish—whether you're the bride or a guest. Aesthetic podiatrist Dr. Suzanne Levine, DPM says that when looking for a comfortable shoe, the first thing to look for is something with breathable material that conforms to the foot and won’t create skin irritation.

So, what shoes are good for a wedding?

Short answer? Comfort means different things for different people. "Comfort is subjective, so what is comfortable to one person may not be comfortable to the next," says functional podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, DPM. But, she says that those of you with flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, or Achilles tendinitis may find flat shoes to be uncomfortable. So, you'll want to opt for something with a bit of a heel, especially for a wedding at which you may be wearing the shoes from a morning ceremony till a late night reception.

Which heels are the most comfortable?

Podiatrist Dr. Tim Oldani, DPM agrees with Splichal. He says you won't want a shoe that's completely flat, and that you'll also want avoid shoes that are too narrow—that's what can lead to bunions, hammertoes, blisters, and corns. The last box to tick on your comfy wedding shoe search? Oldani says to make sure your sandals or heels feature support in both the arch and ball of the foot.

But, as Splichal said, comfort is totally subjective. And, since every type of foot is totally different, you'll want to find a shoe that caters to your needs. Whether you have arthritis, plantar fasciitis, bunions, or all the above, see below for the best stylish, comfortable wedding shoes in 2022, according to podiatrists.
