Have you thought about insoles?

Cole Haan’s line of flats with Nike Air soles may work for you.

it is sooooo hard to find something like this! And insoles don’t usually fit in flats. Geox makes some OK ones.

Bloch flats are like walking on clouds.

Sunshineliz22:  are you looking for any particular style (ballet slipper, sandal, etc)? I’m HUGE on comfortable shoes too as I plan on dancing all night and don’t want to have to think about my feet hurting. Not just for the wedding though as I’m particular about shoes in day-to-day life. I find that shoes with a medium-sized wedge are really comfy while still giving your legs the long, lean look of a heel….not sure if that’s what you’re looking for as well.  Also always, always stick to leather uppers in shoes……the leather will soften and mold to your foot after some time, synthetic will not.

PP is correct, I always also use gel insoles for that extra bit of cushioning plus arch support.

Found these shoes on the Sofft website, I have a couple of casual pairs in this brand and find them great.

Cole Haan are comfortable, the air technology ones with the slight wedge.

Sunshineliz22:  Frye makes really comfortable and supportive flats. Plus they are cute! they have many styles and colors and can definitely work with a wedding dress. 


Here is an example link:

Good luck!

Sunshineliz22:  i bought these for myself! they are soooo comfy. they are a little more casual than i had wanted, but they are so much more comfortable than any other flats i have!

also, they are much more of an ivory than the picture shows, in case your dress is very white.

I wore ballet flats from payless, I bought some insole inserts for them somewhere, worked great!  I just did a quick Google search of “shoe inserts for ballet flats” and a bunch of hits came up.  If you go that route you have more variety of shoes to choose from at many different price points!  Good luck!
