haha pretty much no. I’ve always heard Jimmy Choos are comfortable though (can’t say from personal experience)

Good question.  In my experience it is not the price of the shoe but the quality of how it is made.  (altho I have never paid a TON of money for shoes as of yet.)   😉

You really need to try them on.  It’s going to depend on the padding and where the toe area hits you. (does it hurt your toes?)

I have 5 inch heels that I could jog in (if I felt like jogging lol) and 3 inch heels that kill my feet.

I wouldn’t say expensive heels are necessarily always more comfortable – sometimes you’re paying for brand and not for craftsmanship. But cheap shoes seem to always have cut cost by cutting linings and padding and good stitching. I’d love to find out if it’s true that Jimmy Choos are comfy! 🙂  But there are some really trustworthy brands that you pay a bit more for, and you are paying for quality and comfort.

Most important things with heels is to make sure the treatment of the ball of the foot, and the toes, are well done, because that’s where all the weight is going to go. So check for padding under the ball and wiggle room for toes (even good pointy toes can be made so that there’s room to move). Also check the stitching around the edges of any straps to make sure there aren’t any sharp spots that will cut in.

Eh no. Lol. I love wearing high heels (4 inches or greater) but only do so with Dr. Scholl’s padding. You can buy some at your local drugstore, walmart, etc. They are awesome!

I personally think Jimmy Choos are suuuper comfy, but my friend does not feel the same way. I think it depends on your feet. I’m used to heels and the cushion in Choos is GREAT. But my friend never wears heels so everything is uncomfortable to her regardless of price. On the flip side, I find Louboutins to be uncomfortable despite their price tag. So just because a shoe is expensive won’t guarantee it’ll be comfortable.

Honestly- yes.

I’ve been wearing high heels since I was 16. I rock a 5.5″ heel 5+ days a week. I had a pair of “shorter” dress pants that I needed for a funeral, so I quickly went to Payless to buy a pair of 3 inch heels. 

Oh my GOD, I was DYING.

You don’t need to spend like, $500 on a pair of heels. You can go to Aldo and get a great pair, and then buy a nice pair of gel insoles to keep you comfy.

i’ve noticed that as long as a shoe as a platform, they tend to be a bit more comfortable but maybe thats just me. The soles of my feet are usually what bother me the most so those help and Dr. Scholl’s Wink

@longtime_no_Si:  see, I don’t find platforms all that comfortable because I can’t roll the ball of my foot

@gertrude:  I think it depends on your foot shape/width?  I find Manolo’s to be very comfortable even if they are 4″ or more. To me, they are worth every penny!  On the flip side I despise Louboutins, they tend to run narrow and do not love my slightly wider foot.  I would suggest trying on some shoes at a local boutique to get a feel for what you think is comfortable and if you could walk down the aisle with them?

Totally depends on the shoe- though I’ve had terrible luck with all heels I’ve bought from Payless. 

I would try TJMaxx orMarshalls…they have a bunch of different middle range (some high range occasionally) brands and you can try them on and walk around.
