I purchased a pair of Nina shoes years ago… they were one of the most comfortable flats I have ever purchase. I am 5’7 and wear a 6.5 which is considered to be small; therefore, my feet start hurting faster than the average person. Hope this helps.

I was just wondering the same thing while on Zappos website a few minutes ago. Hopefully you get some comments on this. I will be following.

I can’t speak about the flats but I bought Nina heeled shoes for my wedding and I couldn’t wait to take them off. Nice for the first half hour but painful after and that was with a Dr. Scholl’s insert.

I am sure you will have better look with the flats as there shouldn’t be too much pressure on your feet like a heeled shoe can do.

@ RoddyBride09, Thanks for the info. I would be getting heels, so that is good to know!

@Roddy: did you break them in before wearing them for your wedding?  If so, how long did you break them in for? 

I have a pair of Nina’s that I bought for the wedding and love and they are comfy, but i’ve only worn them for maybe 10 minutes at a time…I’m hoping that if I start breaking them in now they may be more comfortable or if I should start looking for something else completely!

My friend wore a pair of beautiful closed toe pointy Nina heels on her wedding day and said they were the most uncomfortable shoes she ever wore. She was dying by the end of the night, even after she took them off.

I have no personal experience with them.

Oh no!  Don’t tell me this!  I’m in lust with a pair of royal purple round toe nina pumps.  *dies*

@Hunny – good question. I really didn’t break them in. Never really had to do that with shoes before. I think the heel may have been a little too high. I think they were either 3.25 or 3.5 in heel.  However, when my cousin saw I was wearing Nina’s she did make the comment, “I love their shoes but they hurt like heck”. I know that doesn’t mean much. Oh and I should mention, my sister had the same shoe and also was waiting to take them off. It really could just be the shoe.

My friends shoes were also on super sale as they were being discontinued, so maybe that had something to do with it..

Interesting.  I bought Nina heels for my wedding specifically because I’ve never had problems with the brand and knew I’d be comfortable.  I picked the Forbes in new navy with a 3 inch heel.

Keep in mind that any heel over about 3.5 inches is going to be painful unless you’re in the habit of wearing shoes that intense.

I found Nina heels very uncomfortable. No padding, narrow, etc. I returned both pairs I ordered from Zappos. Cute but no way I could wear them for more than 30 minutes without pain.

I have a pair that I will be wearing to my rehersal dinner…they are cute but *not* the most comfortable. You could try them just for the ceremony and change into cute ballet flats? Or use foot petals with them?

here are mine

For me, the Nina’s tend to run pretty narrow (I think someone already mentioned that) but I have a very high arch, so anything that runs wider usually fits me better.

I think that with any formal shoe – you’d have to break them in. Most BM/formal shoes I’ve ever worn I’ve had to break in. I usually wear them around the house with thick sports socks, or I put moleskin (felt padding – cheap at most drugstores) on the inside to pad my foot & so it stretches out the shoe.

Also, most good shoe repair stores can stretch a shoe out for you if you need it – I bring new boots to my shoe guy all the time.
