Ladies, now that the dress has been crossed off the list, I’m moving on to my next purchase…shoes!! I’m looking for a 3 in pair and am quite enamored with several of the NINA offerings.
I wear heels sometimes in my line of work, but they almost always end up hurting after wearing them all day.
So, my question to you all … how do these feel/hold up on your feet? Will getting insertable pads do the trick and provide relief?

I have wide feet and they’re fairly comfortable on me- but I would break them in first! Good luck! Nina shoes are soo pretty!

OMG these were the most uncomfortable shoes I’ve ever worn! My friend made me buy them when I was in her wedding and all of us in the bridal party only could stand to wear them for the 15 minute ceremony. But I have wide feet, size 10 so maybe it’s just me! 🙂

I have one pair of Nina and they are farily comfortable on me, but I don’t wear them all day, either.. Usually just for special occasions, which would last a few hours.

I’m curious about these too – I need a lower heel and this is the only affordable brand I’ve found that looks nice at that height. I saw one of the Bees review the shoe I wanted though, and she said it hurt. Boo.

I have Nina’s I got when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my friend’s wedding and they are really uncomfortable. The pair I have at least has a very thin sole so you feel EVERYTHING. I never wear them which is a shame because they are really cute.

I have a pair that I wear for special occasions that I really enjoy. Which ever shoe you go with, just make sure that you break them in and practice wearing them.

It depends on the shoe. I have several pairs. Most of them are somewhat more comfortable than most of my shoes, one pair is one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, and one pair is about the LEAST comfortable pair of shoes I own. My shoes have a variety of heel heights, the most and least comfortable both being 3.5-4″. The good pair, I can wear all day with no problem. The bad pair gives me blisters in about 10 minutes.
I will say that it’s been pretty obvious what the comfort level of all the shoes would be right from the start…there hasn’t been significant change with breaking them in. So, if you can find them at a store, try them on and wear them walking around the store for a little bit.

Go with Cole Haan–I think the extra money is worth the extra comfort!

thanks all, this is helpful. I think I’ll stay away!
