We're only on day two of New York Fashion Week (or #nylonFW as it's known around the office) and our feet already hurt even though we wore flats yesterday!

Instead of continuing to complain for the next five days, we decided to ask the models backstage what shoes they're wearing to keep their toes un-squished and their insteps supported. We figure if anyone would know the comfiest of comfy shoes, it's the girls who's feet really need a break after after spending hours in six inch stilettos. 

What we learned from top faces like Manuela Frey and Mijo Mihaljcic is that looking cool and comfortable from the ankles down doesn't have to be an expensive endeavor, especially if you add some cushioned insoles to your loafers like Tilda Lindstam did. (She also got her epically cool white purse at Goodwill for only one dollar, so clearly she knows what's good.) From Converse, to Nikes, to Steve Madden sandals with socks, the models of Fashion Week taught us how to keep our feet happy and not break the bank. 

Check out all the gals and their go-to kicks in our exclusive backstage gallery from the BCBG and Richard Chai Love spring '14 shows!
