6 Cute, Comfortable Ankle Boots Bring Blissful Relief to Problem Feet
Ankle boots have established themselves as a wardrobe staple deserving of top-shelf status right next to tall boots. In fact, I find I gravitate toward ankle boots as a more versatile and comfortable option to tall boots. Have you found a pair of stylish, comfortable ankle boots yet? The ones that cradle your foot, fit like a glove and look great with your cool-weather wardrobe? With the thousands of ankle boots online and in store, it’s mind-boggling trying to decide which one will work for you and your particular foot issues. Let us help you narrow the search with our round-up of 6 comfortable ankle boots available from Zappos.
I feel this innovative brand doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Yes, it’s on the pricey side, but the quality is top-notch and you know how hard it is to find truly stylish footwear that manages to comfort and support problem feet. The LDP Hadirat bootie features a premium leather upper with soft nappa lining, removable memory foam insole with arch support, and a lug sole outsole with 1 3/4″ heel. A happy Zappos customer raves:
These boots are the best! I have horrible arthritic feet and I can wear these shoes all day! A happy Zappos customer
We love the Sorel Evie line of cozy ankle boots–they’re sporty yet chic, warm and comfortable. Sorel Evie ankle lace (seen above) features a manageable 2.5″ wedge heel, cushioned footbed and slip-proof rubber outsole. Find it in sizes 5-12 for $140-160 from Sorel.com, Zappos and Amazon.
They accommodate my high arch/high instep feet easily with room for medium or heavy weight socks, and I easily added my orthotics. Nordstrom customer
We love a nice chunky heel and the Josef Seibel Marta 03 wears it well. With flexible goring on one side and a zipper on the other side, these comfortable ankle boots are easy to put on and take off. A generous toe box accommodates bunions and wider forefeet. Reviews state the boot runs a little large, you may want to order down a size unless you plan to wear with thick socks. Find the Josef Seibel Marta 03 in sizes 5.5-11 for $180 from Nordstrom, Amazon and PeltzShoes.com.
I wanted some boots to accommodate my wide feet (including painful bunions) and these have been and excellent fit. I use the half inserts to give a bit more space in the toe box. The boots are excellent quality and looking great dressed up or down. Melody, Frankie4 customer
Beautiful and foot-friendly, the Frankie4 Liberty classes up any outfit. Each pair comes with a Sole Saver pack enabling a customized fit (two full-length footbeds, two half-length footbeds and two forefoot cushions). Available in sizes 6-13 from Frankie4.
I have a neuroma, a painful foot condition, and have trouble find shoes that don’t exacerbate the condition. These boots are fantastic! Naot customer
Israeli brand Naot does it again with the Pali lace-up boot with faux shearling collar. Featuring Naot’s removable cork/latex footbed, the Pali provides structured support while maintaining a lightweight feel on the feet. Find the Naot Pali in euro sizes 35-43 (4-12) for $214.95 from Naot.com, Zappos, and Nordstrom.
I have hammer toes and find most shoes to be very uncomfortable.. until these boots! Orthofeet customer
With too many features to mention here, these comfortable ankle boots come with premium orthotic insoles plus an arch booster for extra support and fitting spacers for a more loose or snug fit. A generous and high toe box accommodates bunions, neuromas and hammertoes. The Orthofeet Emma is available in sizes 6-11, medium and wide widths for $119.95 from Orthofeet.com and Amazon.
