Today’s the kick-off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, which means fashionistas will be running all over New York for the next seven days in their most stylish heels. We’ve found five fabulous shoes that don’t require sacrificing style or height in the name of comfort.  Party on in these surprisingly comfortable and chic heels.

These gladiator heels are from Maria Sharapova’s Collection for Cole Haan Air ($161.23).  As part of Cole Haan’s special collaboration with Nike Air, these shoes are made to feel like a Nike Air sneaker, but with the style of a Cole Haan heel.  A top tennis player like Maria Sharapova has to take extra care of her feet, so you know these shoes are made to feel good.

Platform pumps are a great way to get an extra boost of height and comfort.  The added support of a platform under the arch of your foot is the key to nearly painless walking.  We love how these Steve Madden pumps ($99) play up the added platform with studded detail along the front and heel.

There’s something so sneaky about wedges and their ability to elongate your legs while feeling almost like flats.  By lifting the entire foot, and not just the arch, your foot won’t feel cramped like in a regular pair of heels.  The hippy vintage look of these BCBGeneration wedges ($87.96) are sending our feet some serious vibes of peace and love.

If you’ve never thought of orthopedic shoes as on the cutting edge of fashion, then you’ve probably never heard of designer Taryn Rose.  Her specially crafted shoes are meant for women who often experience foot pain, but aren’t willing to give up on heels.  The carved detailing on these red pumps ($236.90) make them a piece of high heeled art.
