Janetor here: Rachel, thankfully, supportive shoes have come a long way. Brands like Hush Puppies, Naturalizer, Born, and Birkenstock offer foot-healthy-but-still-stylish options. I focused on finding you some cute flats, as I don't want to get yelled at by your doc for recommending heels! :) However, they do offer heels, oxfords, and the like, just FYI...
If any of you readers have other supportive shoe brand recommendations, let us know in the comments!
1 - Born Clever Flats ($85, in 5 colors)
2 - Hush Puppies Fermata Loafers ($115, in 7 colors)
3 - Born Kira Flats ($85, in 2 colors)
