Our fellow Gloss editor Samantha Escobar recently moved to New York. Unfortunately, no one warned her about bringing really comfortable shoes (New Yorkers walk a lot). For many recent transplants, all those city blocks amount to a shitload of new calluses and blisters–and a constant hum of discomfort from the feet.

Dream big, girls: here’s a whole lot of shoes for better weather, from flats to wedges and towering heels. More
