Does anyone know of any? It seems like an impossible quest.
I normally buy a pair of flats every spring/fall (or a pair of sandals in the summer), walk everywhere in them, and wear them until they die. Because they’re cheap shoes, they normally aren’t very good for my feet and they are worn into the ground within a season. I’m willing to invest in a better pair of walking shoes, but all the ones that I see are so ugly! Does anyone have any suggestions?

I’ve heard the best walking flats are the “naturalizers” I dont own any but have tried them on at the department store and they have a lot of cushion. I am like you though and always buy cheap flats to walk in.

@ChicFoodist: Just saying, I live on Sketchers Go Walks. It’s like walking on clouds! I got them when I worked retail and was on my feet all the time.

I had this problem when I was trying to find shoes to wear for my honeymoon in Italy. She suggested Clarks and I got several pairs of their sandals. They had some cute ones (and some not so cute ones) but I wore them all over Italy with no problems and we walked miles every day.

I’ve been lucky with a few pair of Ked’s as well as Minnetonkas, but it’s always a struggle finding a new acceptable pair once the previous one has died!

AGL. Pricey, but so comfortable you can walk for miles and miles without blisters or pain. Not as ugly as most comfortable walking shoes.
Also, Cole Haan, Repetto, Stuart Weitzman
For a more affordable choice,check out J. Crew or Banana Republic. Their shoes are surprisingly comfortable, but won’t last as long.

I love my Skechers scrunchy bikers flats. I wear them all over and even to work, they’re fancy enough.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will look into these.
Part of me was ready to be resigned that I’d have to wear ugly shoes after all, LOL. Especially since I like to wear skirts/dresses most of the time, and when I’m not wearing heels, I default to ballet flats, which often have no support. >.<
