I have never owned a pair of heels that I thought were comfy. I want to know if you have bought your wedding heels and you truly think that they are comfy….what is the brand and style? Thanks….Oh and I am looking for heels that are probably 2 1/2-3 inch…I don’t think I can manage anything higher. Available in ivory, champagne, nude, gold, or navy in color. I have no clue what my budget is right now for them because I have a few other things I want to finalize first…right now I am open to humoring any pair up to 300. Thanks in advance ladies.

This is a subject very near and dear to my heart, because I have NEVER been able to wear traditional high heels without wanting to gnaw my feet off by the end of the day (hell, by the end of two hours!). One brand that I turn to again and again for comfortable but CUTE shoes is Sofft. I believe their website is sofftshoe.com. I actually bought a pair of red patent leather shoes for my engagement pictures, and have a pair of black strappy shoes by them that I can literally walk miles in before feeling any discomfort. I wore those same black strappy shoes to a wedding and by the end of the night I was the only woman who still had her shoes on! I can highly recommend comfort wise, the trick is to find the right shoe. They come out with different collections for Spring and Fall, so right now I am anxiously awaiting the debut of the Spring 2012 collection to see if my perfect shoe is in it. If not, I may just pick a pair of silver or pewter shoes from Sofft to dance the night away in!
PS – Here’s a pic of my shoes in my engagement shots =)

I haven’t worn mine for a long period of time yet, just around the house and for fittings, but they are very comfy! The brand is Butter (they also make the Something Bleu line). They are very cushy inside and they have a whole range on heel heights, colors and styles. I got mine on endless.com , take a peek!

Another great brand of comfortable heels: Seychelles. From viewing @TheGirlinBlue’s photo above, Seychelles heels have a thicker heel in the back, which I think is partially why they are more comfortable.
Also, would you consider wearing wedges? I find wedges are easy to wear all day!

I cannot recomend angela nuran shoes highly enough. I’ve probably posted about it on every comfort shoe thread. They’re made specifically to be ridiculously comfortable, not just “pretty good for high heels”, but legitimately comfortable and such a lifesaver. I bought a pair on recycled bride for $100 off (orig $300, supposedly “slightly flawed”, but I found no flaw) and it was the best shoe investment I’ve ever made. I can and have danced all night in them. I got the tallest ones (Starletta) so I imagine the shorter ones are even more comfy because your foot isn’t bent. They come in ivory and dyable, and pink and black in some styles. Definately check these out.
*update* this is ridic, there’s some pairs for 20-50 from the same pro (actual angela nuran rep) that I got mine from. if it’s your size anyone, buy them now.
If you’re looking for a less traditional style, børn shoes are also very comfy, super nice padded footbed and a wider heel for stability. I have the cornflower style in 2 colors and I can wear them almost just like regular sandals. Right now in the winter though they’re mostly selling boots on their site.

I have arthritis so I only wear heels on good days. That said, I have several pairs of heels that are extrememly comfy, and adding inserts does also help (Dr Scholl’s are cheap, available at lots of places and work well). Via Spiga are probably my favorite shoe line ever. I have a pair of 4 inch heels that I can wear for teaching (and I move around the room a ton when I teach) and be fine on most days. I wear them to conferences all the time. Sofft is also great, but don’t tend to make as high of heels as Via Spiga. Wedges tend to be comfier and more stable for me than heels, so that may be worth looking into.

I dont know if your budget allows it or if there is a store that can do this for you. But for my wedding I am going to be getting a shoe maker to custom make them for me. Its only going to be $250 Australian (which is less than the $800 Mahlano Blahniks i wanted :P) but they are AMAZING when they fit properally and the brand im going with lasts for ever.

@Butterbee: I just bought mine from the seller, and she told me that you can message her and they can get any size (even if its not listed in a posting) from the manufacturer. I understand your postings, I have been doing the same thing, they are so great!
