Like any good New Yorker I care a lot about shoes. And I also care a lot about being able to walk in them.

I know Carrie Bradshaw made it seem like we’re all clip-clopping around in sky-high heels but if you see Sarah Jessica Parker dropping her kids off at school, she’s wearing moccasins. When it comes to footwear, living in NYC is kind of like being pregnant. You want cool shoes that won’t trip you up.

Teetering habits of Jessica Simpson and Rachel Zoe aside, I’ve found most pregnant women seek comfort in footwear. There are swollen feet to consider. But also the fact that walking during pregnancy is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

I’ve assembled some really good, sensible but seriously stylish shoes that work so well during pregnancy, postpartum with a baby and when you’re chasing a kid around the playground. Some are wedgier than others but all boast some reasonable level of wear-ability.

1. The Saltwater Sandal

I have two pairs. I love them.

Available from Amazon for $40.70

2. Madrid Birkenstock Sandal

You can’t wrong with the Birkenstocks during pregnancy. This model got me through two pregnancies and I still wear them. The yellow makes even the pastiest legs look sun-kissed.

Available from Amazon for $67.54

3. Dansko Tasha Sandal

Next to Birkenstock, Danskos are the go-to-brand for the practical hipster. These shoes have a ton to offer pregnant women, special insoles that “wick” away moisture, a “soft footbed,” and beveled heel for “stability at impact.”

Available from Amazon for $89.95

4. UGG Kayla Sandal

Ugg meet Third Trimester. Third Trimester meet Ugg.

Available from Amazon for $49

5. Minnetonka Moccasins

Not technically a sandal, but these hipster slip-ons are perfect summer stompers. They’re everywhere downtown these days and frequently found on the feet of Boho chic moms Kate Moss and Nicole Ritchie. (Check out the other colors, too.)

Available from Amazon for $44.95

6. Kork-Ease Sandal

Huge in the late 60s and 70s, Kork-Ease shoes are fabulously sensible.

7. Fleece Sidewalk Surfers

It’s a shoe. It’s a sweatshirt.

8. Kork-Ease Wedge

The original 1970s wedge in all it’s corky splendor.

Available from Zappos for $145

Love the denim. Very sensible. Win-win.

I have seen New Yorkers work the Baha flip flip with the most urban clothes. The surfer look — comfortable, casual, strong — works perfectly for pregnant women and new moms.

Available from Amazon for $25.51
