    No way i can’t believe so far I’m the only “style” vote. I can’t imagine ever choosing shoes for comfort. Beauty is pain people! (ha though.. If they’re the devil to wear, they don’t get many repeats).

    I voted for style.

    However, my feet are use to it. I have high arches andpretty strong ankles. So, I’m normally not uncomfortable. I think the first time you were a pair of shoes (other than a sneaker), there wil be some rubbing somewhere that isn’t pleasent. So it is important to ‘break in’ your shoes before the wedding.*goes to put mine on*

    Although, I do own some Nina shoes and they are quite comfortable. They both have a pointy toe and do pinch a bit- but I’m a teacher and am on my feet all day. But like I said, if you get your feet used to any shoe, it should be comfortable as long as it is relatively well-made.

    @ksus07:  I voted comfort.  But, I have an infinity to face plant in stylish heels.  I am still going back and forth on shoes.  My dress will be here on Monday, so I need to hurry up and make a committment on the shoes.  I did go and check out the Nina shoes, they have some really nice styles that don’t have huge heels……that don’t look grandma-ish!!

    I have absolutely no suggestion for you on where to look.  I am having the same dilemma!!  If I find something I will come back and share it with you.  Good luck!!

    Beachside, in nsw. You? Sorry to be so vague but I do prefer to be anonymous on the interwebz.

    My shoe dramas have been going on for ages. I just bought my third pair yesterday. Ack. My dress was no trouble but the shooooooo-za! (watch IT crowd?)

    I refuse to sacrifice either, but I have strong feet, so I can take a fair bit of foot abuse before I really notice the discomfort. Try to find some fancy-looking wedges, is my best advice. (I swear they do exist…)

    I buy shoes for style, and then generally leave them in my closet for ages when they’re uncomfortable (which drives my husband crazy)

    I wore gorgeous designer shoes (Badgley Michka), and my feet felt good for most of the night!

    Then I lost feeling in three of my toes for almost a full week!

    Ksus07 (can’t reply directly when on my iPhone) I grew up in a colder part of nsw and I’ll NEVER get used to the cold. NT sounds amazing, I need to go there. Hope you don’t freeze your arse off at your wedding! I hope that for myself too actually. Ah sweet IT Crowd. I hear there’s a new final episode being made, I hope it comes out soon!
