Hey Ladies. I’m looking for a pair of comfortable flats that have support that I can wear to my wedding. I know most of you are going to call me crazy for not wearing heels but I don’t wear them and honestly i’m so clumsy i’m worried i’ll fall. I also need support in the shoe. I hate those flat sandaly things that have no support they hurt my feet. I should also mention I have a ball gown so the only time you’ll actually see my feet is when the groom goes looking for the garter at which point my shoes might already be off lol Any help would be much appriciated!

Sunshineliz22: Look for the dressier shoe in the lines that you usually wear. Aerosoles, Cole Haan, Clarks etc all make very comfortable flat shoes. You just need to find a dressier model. I’m sure there are other brands that we might not have.

Cole Haan’s line of flats with Nike Air soles may work for you.

it is sooooo hard to find something like this! And insoles don’t usually fit in flats. Geox makes some OK ones.

Bloch flats are like walking on clouds.

Sunshineliz22: are you looking for any particular style (ballet slipper, sandal, etc)? I’m HUGE on comfortable shoes too as I plan on dancing all night and don’t want to have to think about my feet hurting. Not just for the wedding though as I’m particular about shoes in day-to-day life. I find that shoes with a medium-sized wedge are really comfy while still giving your legs the long, lean look of a heel….not sure if that’s what you’re looking for as well. Also always, always stick to leather uppers in shoes……the leather will soften and mold to your foot after some time, synthetic will not.
PP is correct, I always also use gel insoles for that extra bit of cushioning plus arch support.
Found these shoes on the Sofft website, I have a couple of casual pairs in this brand and find them great.

Cole Haan are comfortable, the air technology ones with the slight wedge.

These aren’t technically flats (little bit of a wedge), but they are super comfortable!

absolutely_tati: I thought about insoles but I thought they were judt for sneakers… I’m definately open to the idea.
julies1949: I think like a ballet shoes. I’m not one of those girly girls. I have 3 pairs of shoes. sandals. sneakers. and one pair if black flats. I’ll look into the cole haan and clarks thanks.
lanibug: I’m definately looking for more of a ballet flat than a sandal. it’s a formal wedding and I told my mother I was going to wear these really cute ballet slippers (actual slippers) and she almost had a heart attack! I’ll definately look into the Soffy shoes. i can put an insole in that too I suppose if I needed to.
Thanks everyone for your imput.

Sunshineliz22: i bought these for myself! they are soooo comfy. they are a little more casual than i had wanted, but they are so much more comfortable than any other flats i have! http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/lucky-brand-womens-elisabeta-flats?ID=833424&CategoryID=50295&LinkType=#fn=BRAND%3DLucky%20Brand%26sp%3D1%26spc%3D23%26ruleId%3D69%26slotId%3D21
also, they are much more of an ivory than the picture shows, in case your dress is very white.

I wore ballet flats from payless, I bought some insole inserts for them somewhere, worked great! I just did a quick Google search of “shoe inserts for ballet flats” and a bunch of hits came up. If you go that route you have more variety of shoes to choose from at many different price points! Good luck!
