These Comfy Heels Once Had a 28,000-Person Waitlist—And Are the Perfect Work Shoe
The low heel and elasticized back make this shoe surprisingly walkable.
A pair of work-appropriate heels that you can actually wear all day without cramped toes or back pain may be a lot to ask for, but according to more than 1,500 reviewers on Everlane, this cult-favorite company for modern essentials may have created the perfect pair. The Day Heel ($145; everlane.com) launched in April 2017, sold out of all colors within 24 hours, and then quickly raked up an impressive 28,000-person waitlist, according to InStyle. Since then, the shoe has restocked and the range of colors has expanded, but the shoe's popularity as a work wardrobe staple hasn't waned.
Now the work-friendly heels are available in 16 gorgeous colors and three different finishes: leather, smooth suede, or shiny patent leather. From a bold bright red that will give you confidence during a big presentation, to the palest whisper pink, there's a hue to match every day of the week. In February, the company expanded the range to include patent leather options, and in the beginning of March, they added the new mule style ($155; everlane.com) in five colorways. Whichever style you're after, you'll want to snag them now while they're still in stock.
What makes the Day Heel so comfortable? The manageable two-inch heel means it's very walkable, while the elastic at the back solves the typical problem spot where blisters often appear. According to the reviewers, this is the ideal work shoe. It's elegant and versatile enough to go with dresses, skirts, or skinny jeans, so you really can wear them every single day. They also note that the sizes run small, and recommend ordering one half size up to find the perfect fit. But once you find the right size, you'll want to order a pair in a few different colors to go with everything in your wardrobe. Getting dressed for work just got that much easier.
