When you think of "sexy shoes," the first thing that comes to mind is probably a pair of high heels. While nothing turns heads quite like a pair of stilettos, it's no secret that they can be a pain to wear, quite literally. Between the blisters, sore toes and balancing act, it's easy to feel anything but sexy while wearing them. Well, here's a little secret: Women in their 50s and beyond are sharing their go-to sexy shoes in a handful of savvy-shopper Facebook groups, including one for QVC aficionados. The answer? Wedges, wedges and more wedges — specifically, Skechers wedges.

Facebook fans have worn the brand's styles everywhere from formal weddings to picnics in the park. One devotee even wore them every day on a Roman holiday last summer. And all the love makes sense — the shoes are stylish, versatile and supportive enough that your feet won't scream bloody murder. Dr. Dana Canuso, podiatrist and founder of Dr. Canuso Skincare for Feet, previously told Yahoo that wedges "disperse the pressure" placed on your forefoot, making them way more comfortable than heels.

Heel height: 2¼ inches

Who doesn't love a touch of pink? This sweet pair features a luxe foam footbed for all-day comfort and a cork wedge heel for style and stability. 

Oh, and they're seriously lightweight. Take it from this five-star Amazon reviewer: "I thought there was a mistake with my order when I received the package because I was sure [the shoes] were not in there because of how light the package was." They added that they're "really comfortable to wear."

Don't be turned off by the heel height — this classy braided wedge is one of Facebook users' most recommended styles. It features a foam-cushioned footbed and lightweight sole for easy wear. There are four colors to choose from.

"They're beautiful and surprisingly comfortable for a shoe of such height," explained one five-star Amazon shopper. "I love wearing them at work and out and about. Highly recommend!"

Get a little festive this summer and slip into these colorful cuties. The natural woven fiber, open toe, crisscrossing straps, cork wedge and cushioned footbed are all great — but we really love the rainbow of colors. Pair them with a white flowy dress for a sunny, stylish look.

"Wide-feet girl approved," declared a happy Amazon customer. "Absolutely the best wedge/heel I've ever had. There is nothing more to say other than, just get them. No really, get them, your fancy feet will thank you."

Lean into the boho trend (yes, it's back) with this pair of scalloped wedges. The cutouts keep things spicy while the flexible traction outsole and adjustable hook and loop closure keep your feet (and you) safe and secure. 

"I had originally bought some orthopedic sandals and they were not as these," explained a five-star reviewer. "They fit perfectly, they look great, they don't look orthopedic and they feel comfortable."

We're not surprised that wedges this classically chic are part of the Skechers' collaboration with Martha Stewart. Made with 100% vegan materials and a cushioned, contoured footbed, you can take these from the park to the dance floor. 

"Shocked to find such cute and comfortable sandals with orthopedic support," wrote one five-star Amazon reviewer. "Can be worn casually or with a dress. They're actually much nicer than I expected, and they are super comfortable for my high arches."

Another stylish pick from our girl Martha, this slip-on style goes with everything. Crafted with a breathable fabric lining and arched footbed, these are as kind of like slippers you can wear outside. 

"Love these," exclaimed an Amazon shopper. "So comfy and I've gotten lots of compliments!"
