I used to be a cocktail waitress for 4 years so I hear your pain! I found wedges to be most comfortable. A black leather pair would go alright with a suit. Also, shoe insoles can be a life saver.

@tinylittlebird:  Check out Naturalizer.  You might have to dig to find the cute stuff, but they hold up well.  I’m on my feet constantly as a teacher, and I had a pair of wedges that withstood 4 years of abuse.  I also hear good things about Aerosoles.

@AlwaysSunny: & peaches13:    I triple wedges!

 Also, I would avoid peep toes like the plague if at all possible

Anything at Aerosoles would work. I have a number of pairs of their shoes, and love them! My sister is on her feet too, and she wears them as well, and never has problems

Clarks. The padding is amazing.

Oh boy, I have been a cocktail waitress for the last 13 years so let me help ya! Most of my coworkers and I wear Clark’s. They make professional looking shoes that are comfy too. I have also worn Soft brand shoes, which were sooo cute, but not quite as comfy. The most comfortable brand that I’ve worn by far is Nurture. They seriously feel like you’re walking on air. The only reason I’m not wearing them now is because they quit making the style that I wore for years – it was a mary jane type style with the strap across the top. 

Lots of girls have just recently started wearing a brand called Dansko. (sp?) They’re not my favorite to look at, but they must feel great on because I know they usually cost over $100! 

I will try to find some to post.

The ones above are Clark’s.

 

 This one is Sofft.

 

 

These are Dansko. Most of their shoes look like clogs so it’s hard to find a pair that looks professional enough for work, but if you do they’re supposed to be well worth the price.

I have a lot of pain in my feet but I feel I need to wear heels at work. I just got these about a week ago. They’re so light & very comfortable. The only thing is that walking around outside ripped them up quickly. If I were you I’d get them but wear flats to work & change, if that’s allowed.  Also, I know it’s not a huge heel, but you should check out the brand
