I started a new job where sometimes I have to spend 8 hours on my feet at events. Dress code is a pant suit, and all of my suits are tailored to work with 2-3″ heals.
Do you have any suggestions on name brands for comfy heals which don’t end up killing my feet by the end of the day??
I tried using Dr. Scholl’s inserts this week and they didn’t seem to make much of a difference.

cole haan’s nike heels are super comfy but not cheap. i recommend investing in a few pairs!

Birkenstocks. Or Keens. If you think Birks look bad- check out Footprints, Tatami, -there are so many options now. Also, Dansko can work- some have a bit of a heel. I have a really high arch and these are the only shoes that work for me. Dr. Scholl’s were like a joke for me- they didn’t do a thing. Good luck!

Menbur makes some really comfortable heels. Most of their heels are about 3″ and they are the only pairs of heels I’ve ever owned that I’ve felt comfortable being up and around in for extended periods.
Naturalizer also is know for making very comfortable heels.

Clarks! I can’t tell you how comfortable these shoes are. You have to dig a big to find a cute heel but I’m telling you I spend a lot of my work days standing up with no break for 8 hours at events as well and these are a life saver. Also their 2 inch heel on the shoes helps with lower back pain on those long days. Also i love cole hann with nike tech but not for events. those are great for long nights out but just won’t cut it at 8 hour events. Naturalizers are also good.

Danskos or Sanitas. They have a basic black and brown line, or fancier colors if you wish. My Fiance wears his every day at his hospital job and I wear mine at my office job – but they’re also instantly translatable to casual events!

I was all set to relpy to this thread with some excellent suggestions, but then I saw that you are an office worker.
In that case, I really think the only one of my suggestiongs that would still be valid is Dansko. I can’t waer then because I have narrow feet, but they are sworn by.

I’m a teacher and I have Danskos. I’ve managed to scruff them in the past 4-5 months but they are quite comfy. They’re just bulky and I’m always in pants. But if I wore skirts Cole Haans are more stylish I think.

I worked retail full time for a good 4+ years and spent 7-8 hrs running around on tile all day. My FAVORITE pumps for this are Nine West, regular ole pointy pumps with about a 2.5-3 inch heel. They make kitten heels, medium sized ones and tall (4 inch or so) basic pumps…go for the middle height. They come in every color and change seasonally, and I highly recommend having them stretch out the toe box before you take them home. Most specialty shoe stores can do this- I have had Steve Madden and Macy’s do it as well. Life saver!

I agree with FutureKMM & MrsSl82be, I have some Naturalizer boot wedges and they are SOOOO flipping comfortable! I could wear them all day everyday and be happy as a clam. They’re also about 2 years old and still comfy – you know that’s a good sign!

I like Me Too shoes when I’m going to be on my feet all day but need to look professional. Also, stock up on those foot petal things at DSW–they’re pretty cheap and they really help if you’re wearing shoes that don’t have a lot of cushion.
