Katherine Kallinis Berman’s Pick: Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots
“Comfort is key during pregnancy, but you also want to look chic and put together…these have elastic material on the back half of the calf, so they're super comfortable and they will stretch if your feet or legs get swollen.”
The Best Maternity Shoes
Some might not believe this before they get knocked up, but it’s actually true: your feet grow when you’re pregnant—about half or more on average. Oh boy! Sometimes these changes are permanent too, so your pregnancy shoes might turn into your mom shoes once you’ve delivered. This means that when you’re expecting, it’s necessary to treat your toes right with a go-to pair of shoes you can rely on to be comfy. But that doesn’t mean all moms should wear podiatric shoes all nine months. And why should they? There are so many chic but comfortable options on the market, so why look frumpy? We asked our moms about the maternity shoes they relied on during their pregnancy, and they gave us a great list of the best shoes for pregnant women. The interesting part? They all recommended totally different types of shoes. Click through the slideshow to find the best flat sandal, the best platform, the best boots, and the best flats. They’re all pregnant-mom approved, so you can trust they’ll get the job done—and that they’ll continue to be wardrobe staples once your pregnancy is over
