I have trouble with true flats also, but it’s because I have a high arch. I wonder if you put arch supports in (like Dr Scholls) if that will fix the heel problem too? It may lift your foot a bit. Good luck!

I have a slightly different problem.  But I guess I can relate to having a problem with flats.  I have a super high arch, and long toes- so I can only wear Footprints (Birkenstocks).  They make some great ones though- especially if you buy from Germany.  I shop on ebay:  I think the shop is called click4you2 .  They are made to correctly support your feet, and yes, I even wore some on my wedding day with my super fancy dress.

With your specific problem, I might suggest Cydwoq (super expensive) but they have some rad styles and they are handmade, so the only thing touch your ankle bone (I think that is the problem, right?) would be a piece of leather (soft, malleable leather).  It would form to you or you could trim it down.  Good luck!

I have this problem, too! I love the look of flats and wish I could wear them because I’m almost 6′ tall and look freakish in anything over a 2″ heel but it hurts so much to walk in them.

Have you tried using BlisterShield?

 It is a roll on product designed to reduce friction and prevent blisters.

Other than that I would suggest insoles or arch supporst that will lift your ankle above the edge of the shoe.

I bought a pair of gel inserts that adhere to the for the back of the shoe (at the heel) and it’s pretty comfy.. the inserts prevent the shoe from digging into your heel. I’m kind of confused about what you meant by butting a pad between the shoe and your foot, though. Do you mean that the pad doesn’t prevent the back of the shoe from diggin into your foot at all?

I don’t have that problem, but I do have the problem of flats flipping off the back of my feet when I walk.  I’ve tried bigger pairs, smaller pairs, I’ve tried gripping insoles…nothing works.  I just stay away from them. lol
