The cush life
Believe it or not, these shoes are all as comfy as they are cute. No really: Seek stomped around the office in some for a few days to make sure they'd last from "I do" to dancing.

Shane & Shawn Carmen stiletto
At first, these towering spike heels scared the bejesus out of me. But after teetering around all day, I must admit that they are awfully cushy. They have a bizarre padding inside that makes it like walking on little mattresses. Now I just have to work on my balance. —Erin Wylie

Frye Rose Woven T-strap sandal
These are so beautifully crafted and special. They felt really comfortable, but the foot bed is pretty thin so toward the end of the day, walking while carrying boxes became quite a challenge. —Ashley Hoffman

Re-Mix Vintage Promenade pump
These retro shoes were cute and super comfortable, but limited as far as the type of wedding they can be worn to (they’re not very dressy). The Broadwayish look makes me think I could dance all night in them—if I were the kind of person that danced. —Allison Williams

Timberland Katri T-strap
When I think of Timberland, I think of chunky, rugged hiking boots. But these woven brown leather wedges are just as easy on the eyes as they were on my tootsies. I wasn’t in any hurry to take them off. —Rachel LeWinter
