While I spent most of my late teen years and early 20s wobbling around in strappy high heels, the older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve aimed to put comfort first. I would much rather complete an outfit with sneakers, boots, or ballet flats than have sore feet an hour into my plans. But on special occasions, I do make an exception and often find myself reaching for Larroudé heels.
I first found out about the brand while styling a photo shoot a few years ago. I had requested a pair of the Dolly design after seeing them on Instagram, and quickly fell in love with the chunky shape and all the fun color options. Later, when I slid them onto the talent’s foot, she told me how comfortable they felt. At the end of the day, she asked me to remind her which shoes they were, this way she could buy a pair for herself.
Since that moment, I’ve turned to Larroudé time and time again. I used a few different pairs while working on Stylecaster’s Becca Tilley cover shoot — the sparkles and prints really popped against her elaborate dresses. When I styled a director for the 2023 Tony Awards, she needed heels she could easily walk in while making her way down the red carpet. I brought her a pair of Larroudé’s Colette Crystal Mule and she was pleasantly surprised once she put them on.
Everyone I’ve introduced this brand to has become an instant fan. They can’t help but comment on the comfort factor, which is mostly due to the insole that has a memory foam cushion.
Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve also worn Larroudé — even for my wedding day last year. I was initially worried that I would want to kick off my shoes as soon as the reception started, but I ended up dancing the night away while wearing the Dolly. Aside from the memory foam, the thick heel offered so much support and they ended up being extremely easy to walk in, especially outside in the grass.
Of course, the brand sells more than just two great pairs, so I’m including a few of my favorite options, ahead. They’re definitely a bit of an investment, but trust me — they’re worth every penny.
When it comes to heels, these remain one of my favorites. I find that the metallic color pairs well with just about any outfit, the thick heel is super supportive, and I always end up reaching for them before big events (even my own wedding).
If chunky heels aren’t for you, these mules are a bit daintier yet still super versatile. They’ll stand out in a subtle way, thanks to the silver color and jewel embellishments.
There’s a reason a black heel is considered a closet staple. Thanks to its neutral color, it’s one of the easiest ways to finish off a fancy look. If you’re looking for a twist on the old classic, try this crystal embellished pair instead of something simple.
This closed-toe sling back will surely earn you a few compliments whenever you slip them on. The design is so sleek and timeless that they’ll look just as great with a skirt as they will with a pair of jeans.
As we head into the colder weather, you might be tempted to trade your sandals and pumps for a heeled boot instead. This white pair is a fun way to add some height and is the perfect solution for what to wear with flared and wide-leg pants.
