Not for my wedding, but I wear heels nearly every day for work and swear by Naturalizer. That includes walking nearly a mile each way to get to work from public transit.

 Cole  Haan  Nike Air and Sofft  are very confortable.

I wore Stuart Weitzman to the wedding, they were supple kid leather and fit like a glove. I had them from around noon till about 2am. For work I usually pick Michael Kors because they are lined with leather on the inside. For more casual days I pick Clarks because of the heavy cushioning.

The only heels I really buy any more are from Kensie Girl. They’re seriously the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn. They’re also moderately priced and have such cute styles!

I wouldn’t necessarily say more money = more comfort; a lot of designer shoes run narrow and can be pretty uncomfortable! I think it’s true for flats though, cheap flats tend not to have any support and fall apart quickly (especially if you walk long distances in them!).

My most comfortable “heels” are 5″ wedges that I bought at H&M for ~$25. Even after walking around in them all day at work my feet don’t hurt a bit. I think wedges are generally more comfortable anyways, and I have come to looove them. I have a super comfortable pair of Michael Kors wedges I wear to work a lot.

I’ve found that a lot of Steve Madden heels are comfortable, and I really like my pair of Nina Electras.

I agree with @julies1949:  Cole Haan (with Nike Air tech) are comfortable and totally worth the money.  I also had a pair of Naturalizer slingbacks that I loved, but they need to be repaired because I walked so much in them!

entirely agree that Cole Haan w/Nike Air tech are comfortable. I have a dance injury, so I have to be very careful about the heels I wear, and my go to heels are my Cole Haan Nike Air Wedges. Joan & David also makes very comfortable shoes. I have the Flipp Pump in blush patent, and they are super padded.

I think the style and quality are both very important. A wedge or a thick heel, or a low heel, will almost always be the most comfortable (certainly more so than a stiletto), but fit (especially width, which is more often ignored) and manufacturing details (strap adjustability, loose or exposed seams) are going to make a huge difference.

 

If you can’t walk in them a few times around the shoe store without tripping or feeling pain, you’re not going to want to wear them for more than a couple of hours.

 

I have Anne Klein 3″ patent heels (thick heel) that I wear all day at work about 50% of the time (other 50% is a mid-heel boot or flats) and they don’t bug me at all.

I didn’t wear heels to the wedding but I wear heels to work everyday.  Most of my shoes are Sofft as someone has already suggested.  They’re very, very comfy.

My most comfortable heels are 4.25″, with a thin heel, by Cole Haan.  I have an odd size foot (5.5 W), so finding the perfect fit is super important; plus Cole Haan uses Nike air technology so I can walk around in these all day.

I find heels with a slight platform are almost always more comfortable than ones without. Also, classic pumps, peeptoes and ‘supportive’ strappy sandals are way more comfortable than skinny straps or jewelled shoes.

My most comfortable high-end shoes are by Jimmy Choo and Dior.

Dansko has some heels and they are the only ones I will wear.  Feet are so important!
