It’s hard to forget Carrie Bradshaw’s fabulous wardrobe, especially her shoes.

While, of course, TV doesn’t always reflect reality (and we’re sure there were lots of scene breaks involved), the question still remains: Wasn’t Carrie suffering in those beautiful yet painful-looking styles?
Fact of the matter is, heels often skimp on comfort — with designer options being some of the worst offenders.
