I don't know what to do. Every pair of attractive women's shoes just kills my foot. I have tried at least 40 or 50 pairs on in the correct size and I cannot wear them. Most hit my foot right where the bone sticks out. My niece is getting married this Saturday and I am in a total quandary. I want to look good, but I dont' want to cripple myself. Any suggestions?

You can buy one of those ortho shoe/boots at a drug store and wear a flat on the other foot. Or buy cheap wide width shoes.

How about a pair of house slippers in a ballet style?

or these

Dressy Sneakers Shoes, Custom Dressy Sneakers Shoes, Keds Dressy Sneakers shoes

Wedding Sneakers Shoes, Custom Wedding Sneakers Shoes, Keds Wedding Sneakers shoes

Custom Bridal Sneakers and Decorated Wedding Tennies - Affordable Wedding Shoes

Time is your problem, though, for ordering off the net.

You could get a pair of plain white keds, hit the craft store, and do your own custom design!

Use a slip on, or choose a lace up style and swap the laces for a fancy ribbon or a bit of real lace.

When all is said and done, everyone will remember what the bride wore, not what was on your feet.

Wear something comfortable and enjoy the day.

Best wishes to the bridal couple.

Who has not worn an uncomfortable shoe in years. Too many other potholes in the roads of life.

Have you tried to wear one of those bunion pads with a shoe that is cut wide? You can pad the back heel to keep it from slipping.

But this shoe would be perfect:
Arcopedico L14 Black - Zappos.com Free Shipping BOTH Ways

It stretches as the top part is a fabric and it looks like a little flat. You could even wear them with jeans after so its not one pair of dress shoes you will never wear again.

That's what I was thinking - heck, they can be gold leatherette as long as they're comfortable for one day.

What type of wedding is it, Cmacf1? Formal evening or day venue?

Have you tried the Naturalizer shoes?

This may not be of help for this event, but considering you have this issue. Try looking into this website. They specialize with ortho and other issues related to the feet.

Could you buy the same show in two sizes? Wear the "right"size on good foot, and the wider size with bunion pad on the other?

I wouldn't stress it too much - everyone will be looking at the bride. If you chose one of the other options - sneakers, slippers, orthos I doubt anyone will pay much mind.

SOOOOO comfortable! And Bakeneko is right - nobody's going to be looking at my feet!
