They are on the funky side, which is great by me. I can, and have, walked over a mile in them with surprising comfort. And the bonus is, for the last couple seasons the styles have been getting less and less clunky, so I heartily second that option.
They are infamous for being difficult to wear. Christian Louboutin has said it does not matter to him if women are in pain when they wear his shoes, he has been quoted as saying: The same height heel for example a four inch heel , will feel very different on different size feet.
The long side of the triangle which is the ramp, is in relation to the other two sides which are the heel height and the distance from the heel to the middle of the ball of the foot. The most comfortable way to wear quite high heels such as four inches, is to wear platforms. I have found Clarks to always make excellent comfortable shoes in my student price range.
And the bonus is, for the last couple seasons the styles have been getting less and less clunky, so I heartily second that option. Not usually in stores, though, have to get them online, and the styles tend to fall in the funky Fluevog category. Cole Haan Air are hit or miss for me. I agree—I find that the Air part reduces toe room and makes them squished and blister prone. I typically bring a pair of flats to switch into for any walking further than 3 blocks — at first, I did this for comfort, but now that I have found some more comfortable heels, I do it to save the heels from the uneven streets in San Francisco.
And of course any heel is more comfortable with a Dr. Cole Haan Nike Air — anything for me — the mid talia ones are my go to shoes for giving 4 hour lectures to graduate students.
I have a pair of sling back platform wedges and even with a medium high heel they feel very comfortable to walk in. Part of their appeal for me is that the bottoms are very light weight so they stay on the foot very well. When I put my contoured foam high heel inserts into them they wear like flats for either all day at the office or for a kilometer walk to the corner store.
The wedge high heel sling back style with peep toes looks great with both dresses and pants, or jeans. They have extra padding in the footbed. In summer, I wear these shoes to work every day. I just wish they made shoes for all seasons. Bunkster, I love the pairs of Athena Alexander sandals I have! Spent about 5 hours walking the San Antonio Riverwalk in a higher-heeled sandal, and my feet never flinched. I really like Kate Spade pumps — great colors and styles — and very comfortable.
For what it is worth, I have a large 10 wide-ish foot. FYI, Taryn Rose no longer owns the shoe company by her name, but the company still makes comfortable shoes. DSW sometimes has a few styles in stock. No idea if they are comfortable, but I would guess yes, given her background.
My favorite work pumps are from Botticelli. They make some very sensible but fashionable work shoes and are on the less expensive side for shoes actually made in Italy their boots are still a fortune, though. Seinfield fans might also recognize the brand from the episode where Elaine buys a pair…btw, the website is a little busted, so this might be a nyc-only recommendation…. I feel like I am walking in tennis shoes and they are stylish and well-made.
I have to stop myself from wearing them everyday. Without a doubt, Cole Haan Nike Air. I have a wide range of shoes in my collection — 3-inch pumps, 4-inch pumps, boots, work-appropriate sandals, and casual sandals. I have bought no less than 3 pairs of the Nine West Barbe pump. I find Calvin Klein shoes to run a bit narrow—just a PSA for those out there who run into this problem. I second Calvin Klein Diema for a 1. Break in period is almost nil,which i a huge bonus.
I can feel the little bumps my toes made in there. I have been hunting for comfortable heels for a lifetime it seems. My hands down favorite are a pair of Facconable peeptoe sling backs that are 3 inch high. They are so comfortable despite the height. I have tried every brand named above in varying heights and none are as comfortable as the Facconable. I used to think that it was the narrowness of the shoe that was making them uncomfortable, but after trying on pairs and pairs of shoes, it is not the width, but the depth.
I think I need a deep toe box or the space between the bottom of the shoe and the vamp. I guess I have thick feet sounds awful, no? I have had some luck with the Calvin Klein pumps of late, but need the heel stickies to avoid shoe slippage. If anyone has any other recs for thick footed people, please let me know! I second the Corso Como recommendation — priced right, extremely comfortable without being stodgy and fashionable enough to wear to after work events too!
Kenneth Cole Reaction, the 9 to 5 line are the best! I was skeptical, but they Gracie and Denny pumps were so comfortable from the first minute I tried them on. I have yet to put them through the test of walking marble floors at my new workplace or go through an entire day with them, but they come well recommended from many other friends.
As I mentioned in the other thread, I have found Farylrobin heels quite comfortable. They are of a style — rather than classic stilettos — with a chunkier heel most often, but I could walk blocks in them. My go-to black heels are Naturalizer, and I have a couple of cute pairs. They are quite comfortable and very reasonably priced, especially if you wait for sales and promos. Can anyone rec comfortable heels for high arches? I find arch supports are only helpful in flatter shoes.
In heels, I just need to find a pair that fits well and provides all-over support. A very strong and stable shank is particularly important when you have high arches. Generally, Stuart Weitzman seems to be the best overall line for my high-arched foot, but the brand is at the edge of your price range.
Finally, when you can afford Prada someday, they are fab. Second — Love the perfect pumps. Have owned 4 pairs of them, bought over several years. I have been in search of the perfect pair of pumps forever. I want to buy something not made in China, that has a inches heel, no chunky heel or super skinny heel, no toe cleavage, somewhat wider shoes than a size medium, but wide. Is my list too long? I must have weird feet. When available in other brands I usually opt for wide sizes, but medium width works for me in these shoes.
I like corso comos, but the last pair of flats I bought were way too tight across the ball of the foot. Maybe it was just an off pair. They are a little funky, not for everyone, but the heel is never skinny or chunky. Oh, I forgot to state, these pumps must be comfortable and do not make too much noise while walking on tile floors.
No one has mentioned Fitzwell; is that not a common comfort brand? I bought a pair of 2. My pumps are extremely comfortable and very classic, bordering on boring, which is great for upcoming interviews. Seychelles have not been mentioned yet. They are the most comfortable heels I own and I own a lot ;p. I loved the padding in the shoes so much that I walked away with 4 pairs.
They are cute, and so comfy! I have even run in my heels! They are also reasonably priced. These are my go-to shoes for when I need a basic, every-day shoe. I highly recommend these! I have been really happy with a couple of pairs of Corso Como shoes. They have a really nice leather padded footbed with a lot more padding than most shoes. The look absolutely nothing like Crocs, but carry the Crocs comfort. I am always in search of a perfect pump. My best pair right now is a pair of Me Too wedges — I swear I could walk in these all day.
The patent pewter is cute but too close to black. They are also the first pair of pumps I have been able to comfortably wear both with and without stockings. The style can often lean toward the clunky, but occasionally you can spot a good work shoe. I bought a pair of Ecco pumps after recovering from a pretty severe ankle break — for a long time they were the only non-flat shoe I could wear.
Not only comfy all day long, but even after wearing them almost daily that year, they still look great! Second the Ecco shout-out. I heart the Ecco Junction. Incredibly comfortable and sleek, and not at all chunky-heeled.
This is such a great list. There are so many more comfort shoe brands today than there ever used to be. I have her Indico pumps in several colors. And I have to 2nd Cole Haans. They are beautiful, and last forever when well taken care of. Nothing else will do on those days. How high is too high?
I prefer cone-shaped mid-low heel 2. I have lots of black and dark brown shoes and want to expand. Is bone or beige inappropriate office wear? What color shoes is appropriate with a dark brown pant? Just wanted to post a site for shoes that are gorgeous at a great price! Quiet the sound of your heels while also protecting them and making them more comfortable!
Clickless is the revolutionarily simple invention that silences your footsteps in heels. Check them out at www. I can, and have, walked over a mile in them with surprising comfort. My only note is that the leather is a bit larger than the patent and suede. I had to put a pair of insoles into the leather pair although they are the same size as all of my others.
A classic pointy toed pump I can wear all day, even tromping around in The City and my feet are happy. I have them in several colors. Pricey, dressy but comfy: Chanel, YSL and Dior in that order. I need a bigger toe box because of my bunions and these are fab. I can walk in Chanel all day. I just got my first pair of Fluevog. But I had to pick the less chunky styles.
Cole Haan fits great and I could walk for miles in them but the new Nike ones are wider and too big for my narrow heel. Naturalizer heels are also comfy in the lower height versions but the quality is not as good they have not lasted long for me. An inexpensive, but super comfy , decent quality would be jessica Simpson! I have 3 pairs of platform heels made by her and must say theyre a great buy. Pair these pumps with a sleek pencil skirt for a go-to professional.
Classic pump but the arch is perfect. Some heels have a weirdly placed arch and it looks funny. I have searched high and low and I have not found a better shoe for the price.
The heel is stable to walk in. Don't hesitate to buy these! Have the[m] in 2 colors.. Love them with a dress or dressy skinny jeans! My usual size fits perfectly and the heel height is both sexy and comfortable! The point is perfect and the block heel makes them very flattering. These shoes are beautiful. I don't wear heels all that often because I hate to be uncomfortable but these were on another level—I'm talking 'feet weren't in pain for one second' comfortable.
They are adorable, and very comfortable to walk in. They don't make the balls of my feet hurt after wearing them for several hours like some heels. The perfect shoe for any outfit. I bought them in ballet pink and I absolutely love them. Compliments galore when I wear this shoe!

About a year ago, Stacy and Jenny were sitting side-by-side, as their hair was getting colored at a Manhattan salon—and they were frustrated. There was no way, they realized, for them to wear their reading glasses and get their hair colored at the same time.

The unique, patent pending design features proprietary black diamond hinge technology, which enables wearers to put their readers on in the traditional way—or flip the temples for an entirely new experience. Flip them during a face mask, so you limit the mess! Flip them while cooking, so you can read your recipe, knead your dough, and never get food in your hair!
