(SPOT.ph) Heading to a beach wedding this summer? Or maybe you’ve got a garden party on your agenda? We know the crazy heat is uncomfortable enough so wherever you’re headed this season, we recommend sticking to comfy, fuss-free clothes—think breezy pants, protective hats, hands-free bags, and for dressier occasions, comfy heels. Hey, you can’t rock sneakers all the time.
Here are 10 comfy heels for all your summer affairs:
Tortoiseshell Chunky Heel Sandals (P2,795) from Zara
Embrace the return of animal print with these gorgeous tortoiseshell-patterned sandals from Zara. The simple silhouette will look good on anyone, plus, the tawny hues will work on a variety of skin tones. You can take them to work or to a night out—the chunky square heel won’t leave your feet strained.

Sunflower (P3,700) from Artisatch
These slightly elevated sandals from local brand Artisatch (under Marikina-made footwear community The Stride Collective) are great for dressy outdoor events like beach weddings or al fresco brunches—plus, peep that cute, hand-painted sunflower on the side. Pair them with a cute dress and a woven bag for a cool-but-comfy boho look.
Available at The Stride Collective showroom at 23 E. Santos, Marikina City.
Multicolor Sandal (P2,995) from Mango
The '90s nostalgia is strong in these wedge sandals from Mango—we can’t take our eyes off the pretty pink sole and candy-colored straps. Their wedged shape will help distribute the pressure throughout your foot to avoid cramps at the end of the night.

The Selene (P1,450) from Giovanne the Label
The two-inch heels on these dainty slip-ons from local brand Giovanne the Label will give you just a bit of added height without causing too much of a struggle while you walk. They come in elegant pastel shades and are made from vegan leather if you’re opting for a more conscious purchase. Slip them on anytime you’re going for a delicate look.
Sporty Platform Sandals (P1,995) from Bershka
Take a break from sneakers with these chunky platforms from Bershka, which’ll look great with all your athleisure looks this summer. The uniform height on the sole will ensure that the pressure is evenly distributed throughout your foot, thus preventing any cramps and aches.

Block-Heeled Sandals (P1,590) from H&M
These shoes from H&M are just a little over three inches tall, but don’t worry because the thick block-heel and ankle strap will help relieve pressure on your foot. We love the dainty curved design on the top strap. You can grab this pair in black or beige, but if you’re feeling bold, you might want to try it in this bright yellow shade.

Natural Jute Mid-Heel Sandals (P2,395) from Pull&Bear
You’ll love these jute sandals from Pull&Bear for outdoorsy occasions—the thick sole will keep you from sinking into the ground whether you’re at the beach or in the garden. The rustic material gives them a boho feel and makes them casual enough for regular days, too.

MCEZ 0918-17 (P750) from Meigan
These nude sandals from Meigan will make you look (and feel) like you’re walking on air. The short, thick heel is much comfier than a long, thin stiletto and we’re totally loving the retro-inspired transparent strap.
Neon Pink High-Heel Sandals (P1,695) from Stradivarius
Channel your inner Legally Blonde with these neon-pink heels from Stradivarius—they’ll give you that boost of confidence you need for a big meeting or a hot date. If you’re loyal to the stick-thin stiletto heel but still want to be comfortable, we recommend sticking to a short length—the heels on this pair are a little less than three-and-a-half inches.

Kip White (P1,150) from Tutum Shop
Love white sneakers? Switch them up for these white close-toed sling-backs from Tutum Shop. You can take them from corporate to dressy to casual and they’ll go with pretty much anything. Plus, the chunky block heel won’t give you a hard time while you’re hopping from one place to the next.
