Since you mentioned Badgley-Mishkas – I got mine from DSW for $70 a couple of weeks ago . . . not TOO bad . . . But not super cheap, either!

I wore Badgley Michka! I got them “new in box” on eBay for $65, marked down from $325 retail!

-were they worth it? (I’m talking comfort, here)

For a $70 pair of shoes, I think they could have been a LOT more comfortable. That being said, they were extremely strappy–And strappy heels are MUCH less comfortable than their pump counterparts, Unfortunately, my two favorite, extremely comfortable, comparably priced heel brands (Jessica Simpson and CHinese Laundry) didn’t sell heels in the height I needed (4″ exactly)

-Did you change into flats for your reception?

I did not! I also wore them out dancing when we went clubbing that night! My feet felt fine wearing them from 9am to 4pm, and then again from 6pm to 3am. That being said, I lost feeling on three of my toes for almost a week after the wedding.

I got a pair of higher end shoes at 6pm.com.  They were not Badgelys – they were actually “comfort” sole Cole Haans.  They were originally $230, marked down to something like $95.

I’m in chronic pain, so a “comfort” shoe with some padding in the sole is pretty much the only way I’d be able to wear 4″ heels for hours on end (and I needed the extra height, as my wife is several inches taller than I am and self-conscious about it).  Since I’ve got that thing called champagne taste and a beer pocketbook, none of the cheaper comfort lines felt “wedding” enough for me (also, apparently strappy gray shoes aren’t common).

These were totally worth it, and I’ve reworn them a few times.

Kate Spade! Definitely very comfortable shoes. And Something Bleu, they even have a little blue crystal embedded in the sole so you’re covered for your “something blue”. You have super high arches, so I think you should find Badgley Mischka shoes to be comfortable, and they are easily found for a lower price at discounted stores like DSW, NM Last Call, etc … Smile And if you happen to find any Louboutins on discount at Last Call, people with super high arches tend to find them more comfortable Laughing

I’m not sure if my response would be helpful since I really wanted my shoes to show; I picked a tea-length dress for that reason.

My heels are two inches; it’s got ample support with rubber sole. Any higher — I’d be limping. It’s interesting to note that Air Canada flight attendants also wear these in the company’s colours.

Expensive? Yes, Fluevog’s shoes are expensive, BUT are comfortable too.

They’re a splurge at 300, but I am planning to wear them for the office after the wedding. I own a pair of black Mollie Johnson — I stood in them all day (6 hours) while volunteering for my employer’s booth at the career fair. It was super comfortable. It never required any breaking in: http://www.fluevog.com/code/?w%5B0%5D=search%3Amollie%20johnson&pp=1&view=detail&p=1&colourID=4051

I might change into dancing heels (Fatima; a discontinued Fluevog product) at the reception for the first dance, but slip back into the teal heels afterwards for comfort.

Check out fluevog.com as there are many selected pairs on sale. (Sorry, I’m an obvious Fluevog fan, haha)
