Hot Party Shoes You Won’t Hate in the Morning

You could say we have a dysfunctional relationship with fashionable footwear. We love to look at them--we hopefully take them out for fun nights on the town, but after a few spins on the dance floor, they burn us and we end up cursing ever giving them a chance in the first place. And yet we keep coming back for more. Luckily the hidden-platform and stacked-heel trends of the last few seasons may help us end our masochistic relationship with party shoes. Following are hot shoes that at least look as if they could hold up to a holiday party or two without killing your feet or your festive spirit.
