You're mid dance move at your friend's wedding when all of a sudden it hits you: pain — horrible, horrible pain — caused by those sky-high heels. You need a minute (or 20) to rest/ice your feet, and then you'll be back, this time rocking a pair of oversize flip-flops supplied by the bride. It's not exactly ideal for re-creating the entirety of NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" music video, but, sigh, do you even have a choice?
The answer, quite simply, is yes, and it all starts with the prep. You'll want to snag yourself some fancy flats, platform or caged heels that provide support, or something with a shorter heel height in general. We've found a few options ahead that are comfy enough to rock all night long, meaning you can get your early '00s Justin Timberlake on without causing major damage.
