While it’s still true that 50 is not old, some parts of our bodies may need a little extra love and support as we age! As a fashion blogger, I share a LOT of shoes. Often times when I post myself wearing a trendy pair of shoes, I get comments from readers mentioning that they are limited in their shoe choices because of a painful foot condition like plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammertoes, bone spurs, etc. That’s why today I decided to share some of the best orthotic friendly, comfortable shoes for women. These shoes are not only supportive to keep you pain-free, but they are also cute, stylish, and trendy!

Best Orthotic Friendly, Comfortable Shoes for Women
I decided to call out a few of my best orthotic friendly, comfortable shoes for women, including sneakers, sandals, slip-ons, flats, and heels. You can shop the rest of the list at the bottom of the post!
You will love these supportive tennis shoes from Brooks. They are not only amazing shoes to wear while exercising but also great if you’d just like a comfortable and supportive pair of tennis shoes to pair with leggings or jeans.
I’ve talked about how popular white sneakers are this year many times. I love pairing white sneakers with jeans, denim shorts, and dresses. If you’ve been hesitating about trying this trend because you need supportive shoes that won’t hurt your feet, try this pair from Taos.
Vionic shoes always seem to make the list of on-trend shoes that also feel great! This pair of sneakers have enhanced stability with a deep heel cup, superior forefoot cushioning, and ultimate arch support midsole. They come in 13 different colors so that you can find the perfect shade for you!
It can feel impossible to find attractive and supportive sandals, but these flip-flops prove that theory wrong! These cute thong sandals have an EVA-cushioned footbed and midsole, biomechanically contoured arch support, and heel cup. Plus, how darling is the little bow?
A podiatrist designed the footbed on these chic leather sandals to help to relieve plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches, bunions, heel spurs, and lower back pain issues. They come in multiple colors, and I especially love the white foil leopard print!
If you are shopping for the ultimate orthotic sandal, this is the winner! The wide range of widths along with the multiple adjustable straps offers a customized fit that is great for those suffering from bunions or hammertoes. The pillow-like support helps to relieve pain from your toes all the way up to your knees, hips, and back!
Best Slip Ons:
I love wearing slip on sneakers while running errands! They look great with leggings, a tee shirt, and a long cardigan. These canvas slip on sandals from Taos come in several different cute colors and prints, including a pretty floral pattern.
If you are looking for a pair of slip on shoes that are breathable, comfortable, and lightweight, check out these easy-to-wear shoes by Spenco. The total support footbed gives an unmatched level of comfort and support!
This slip on sandal is a fantastic option if you want to find a comfortable white sneaker, but don’t love wearing lace-up shoes. You can get a very similar look with this platform slip on with stability, arch support, and cushioning by Vionic.
Add a chic and sleek touch to any outfit with these comfortable metallic flats by Vionic. The included orthotic insole is amazing, but you can remove it to add your own custom insert if needed. You can find these shoes in narrow, medium, and wide widths.
I’ve never tried a pair of Naturalizer shoes that I didn’t like! This pair of high quality flats are designed with a flexible sole, lightweight materials, extra cushioning, heel-to-toe balance, and a breathable lining. What’s not to love?!
Best Orthotic Friendly Comfortable Shoes for Women – Heels
I didn’t want to do a best orthotic friendly, comfortable shoes for women list without including dress shoes. Let’s face it, finding heels that are arch and orthotic friendly is hard.
Vionic is known for comfort, and these wedge shoes with arch support shows they also have plenty of style. The neutral color will match anything, so you’ll get plenty of opportunities to wear them.
I have these Aetrex Espadrille Wedge sandals, but in blue. They are comfortable, stylish, and they have a design feature I love. The straps velcro closed, eliminating the hassel of buckles. I feel like I’m standing on my head sometimes, when I’m trying to fasten the buckles straps. Lol!
This is a highly rated brand for orthodic freindly shoes, but I’ve not tried it yet. I love the style, especially the cork and gold combination.
There are certain ocassions that call for a dress shoe. This can be a challenge when you have feet issues. These Vionic sandals have a kitten heel, and orthotic insole arch support, so they might be the shoes you’ve been looking for.
If you already own a pair of shoes that need some extra comfort and support, you can try to add a specialized insole to add extra arch support and cushion. These insoles from Heel That Pain supports the foot arch and apply therapeutic acupressure to your heel, relieving symptoms of heel pain, plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, heel spurs, and shin splints in an all-natural way.
