@LeSpice:  I was supposed to wear the manolos I bought for my wedding but I decided to wear my J.Crew metallic toe pumps for pictures, preparty, etc.  They were so comfortable that I ended up wearing them for the entire night and never changed into my super fancy shoes.

I never had to break them in!

I dont have a specific brand that is ALWAYS very comfortable to me. In my opinion all shoes need to be worn for a few hours before I’m able to determine their comfort. Most of my “comfy” shoes just arent as stylish so I wont wear them often. Even my most comfortable shoes just mean I’m able to wear them a few hours longer than my “uncomfortable” ones but still not all day and walking a lot of blocks here in New York.

I have some Boutique 9s that are comfy, Giuseppe, Zara, BCBG. I also have some Cole Haans that are probably the most comfortable I own but theyre not as stylish (to me).

I love all my Calvin Klein heels for comfort. I find them to be a better fit for me than the Cole Haan Airs – I have a pair but rarely wear them since getting my CK heels.

@LeSpice:  Nine West 3″ pointy heels and Qupid 5.25″ platforms are the most comfortable shoes IMO.

Jessica Simpson and Carlos Santana heels are SO UNCOMFORTABLE, despite being good looking.

I’ve been searching for a pair of navy blue suede shoes for my wedding, with no luck. Prada made a pair a few months ago but I can’t find them anywhere because they’re out of season.. so on a whim, I picked up a pair of blue suede, pointed toe, Salvatore Ferragamo pumps because I liked the color.. and they are SO comfortable. I’ve been ‘breaking them in’ at home but truthfully there’s no need.

Also, Cole Haan with air technology are comfy, not terribly cute but.. practical. Another amazing option is the Rag and Bone newbury bootie.. its not a high heel shoe, but they’re SO comfortable.

Naots and Fluevogs. 

Although this season Naots don’t have very many wedding-y shoes 🙁 (I wear my Naot 2.5 inch heels for 10 hours, standing at work, so I swear by them, but this years are not as pretty as other years 🙁 So disappointing….)

Fluevogs are awesome, as long as you don’t mind colourful shoes. I think I walked about 5km in them once.

I wear a pointed toe pump almost everyday (it’s like my uniform), and I’ve been really pleased with every J Crew everly pump. However, there’s no magic shoe. I find the Saint Laurent 105mm pointed toe pump excruciating, but the Manolo BB pump, despite looking identical to the SL, even in the squared off heel shape, is sooooo comfy!

If I were you, I’d order a bunch of heels and wear them at home for an hour at a time to get an idea. Also, figure out what makes a shoe feel comfy for you. Personally, I hate platforms. I’d wear a 110mm stiletto with no platform before wearing a platform pump. They’re just not comfortable for me. Figure out what works for you via trial and error!
