Finding sexy, stylish shoes that are also comfortable doesn't have to be the holy grail of shoe shopping. Here, 10 party-ready beauties with heel heights of three inches or less
Wearing these strappy heels by Michael Michael Kors is like wearing little disco balls on your feet. And with a 3" heel you'll keep the party going all night. ($165, macys.com).
These tiger-print kitten heels look a little wild but they'll actually work well as a neutral. The d'orsay cut and pony hair material add to their style quotient. ($165, rowenfootwear.com).
The heel height of these Loeffler Randall wedges will take you from day to night. The rose gold hue is refreshingly unexpected. ($295, loefflerrandall.com).
Silver shoes are having a major moment this season. Wear these textural pumps with everything from your favorite coated denim to a little black dress. ($250, piperlime.com).
When paired with a short, stacked heel, a jewel encrusted bow becomes more polished, less juvenile. (Kate Spade, $350, nordstrom.com).
If ever there was a modern day version of Cinderella's glass slippers, these Jimmy Choo pumps with a 2 ½-inch heel are it. ($575, nordstrom.com).
Any anglophile will know that L.K.Bennett is the favorite shoe line of the Duchess of Cambridge. And for good reason: the exquisitely crafted shoes are known for their style and comfort. We love the rich color and texture of this pair.
Manolo Blahnik needs no introduction and neither will you when you walk into the room wearing these understated but stunning cobalt slingbacks. ($645, saks.com).
These Lanvin heels are so gorgeous you'll want to skip Starbicks for a year in order to afford them ($980, net-a-porter.com)
The look of Valentino is often known for it's girly-meets-edgy aesthetic, and these leather and lace stacked heels are a perfect example. ($995, netaporter.com).
