I need comfortable shoes...

Hello Ladies,

I can't wear heels or boots with a heel anymore only because my feet hurt like crazy at the end of the day. When I get home from work my feet are hot & sore. I've been looking for flat comfortable shoes but I haven't had any luck.

I only have one pair of flats and they feel great but they are not dressy for work. I need something I can wear everyday with either a dressy shirt and slacks or nice top/jeans. Anyone have any suggestions? What are you ladies wearing?


Re: I need comfortable shoes...

  • Maybe check out Born or Sofft.  Not the most stylish, but they both usually have a couple of cute but comfy flats!  I used to sell shoes, so that's where I would lead someone looking for cute and comfy shoes.

  • Oh and since you asked, I usually wear Born myself.

  • Do you have a DSW near you? They have a huge selection of flats ( I think you can order online if you don't have one local) I bought 2 pairs of flats there this past weekend.. I got more casual, but they had tons and tons of dressy flats, def. worth checking out. 

    Hope you find some you love :)

  • I wear flats every day and my usual go to shoes are the Jessica Simpson Leve flats in black that are around $50 on Zappos. I also just purchased some new flats this weekend by AGL sold at some Nordstrom stores that were pricey but they are sooo comfortable. I didn't believe how comfortable they would be when the salesperson told me about them but after I tried them on for 10 seconds I was sold. They seriously feel like butter!
  • I got some 2" chunky dress heels at wally world. It's from the George line. Inexpensive, comfy, & goes well with office apparel. I like that I can just slip my feet in them & not have to fuss with straps & buckles. Bought them for about $14. I love a good deal! I'm obviously not a name brand h** ;-)

    My feet nowadays hate flat shoes just as much as high heels. Something with a short, chunky heel (& lot's of padding) makes my body feel more balanced & lessens the strain on my back, feet, & ankles. HTH

  • I have a lot of foot problems in general, particularly in pregnancy.  Other than tennis shoes, I only wear Danskos or Merrells. (I'm too lazy to get up and see how they're actually spelled.)  They're expensive but worth every penny. 

  • Don't laugh, but I looove my Crocs! They actually have some cute styles that don't look like the ugly clog ones.

    They're sooooo comfy!

  • Thank you so much for all the feedback. I do have a DSW and I have been there 3 times but I can't find anything I like. (maybe if I try some on I will like them) I've just been "looking." lol We do have a Nordstorms so I will try there next. I'm also looking online so I hope to find something soon! =)
  • I love naturalizer and ecco shoes esp the flats `~ so cute . Thats all I am wearing now .

  • I tried on a pare of Earth shoes and they were very comfortable. But I don't know if they would work for your style. They didn't work for mine.

    I have resorted to flip flops. So trashy but I am on my feet all day and my feet are no where near their normal size.
