While a stylish and comfortable heel — aka one that looks great and doesn’t kill your feet — may be the holy grail of footwear, would you put yourself on a waitlist for a pair? It seems like many women would, and back in April, they did!
When the shoes launched on Everlane earlier this year, The Day Heel almost immediately massed a staggering 15,000-person waitlist and were back ordered until summer. Luckily, they are now back in stock and still as comfortable as ever.
What makes these heels so special? For starters, they’re crafted with super soft Italian leather. These ballet-inspired beauties also feature a rounded toe, cushioned insole, two-inch block heel and elastic back. Plus, they’re available in four different colors. They ring in at $145, which isn't terrible considering that they are well-made and the company promises that they’re “a heel you can walk in. All. Damn. Day.”
”I love how the leather of this shoe just molds to my foot — and the soft elastic keeps it in place without any pinching,“ says Lisa Przystup, who took them for a trial run and shared her experience on Everlane’s site.
