Have you ever looked at Zappos.com? They have customer reviews of their shoes and also good descriptions of how much arch support, and how each shoe fits, etc.
Their shipping is free and it is so rapid that if you order in the afternoon, you will have them at your door the following morning...Instant gratification!

I love heels and need to buy more. Problem is my ankles are too skinny and pop out the back, so I have trouble finding ones that fit.

Not that Im into fashion trends but the thicker style 'chunky' heels work pretty good and some gel insoles take a lot of pressure off your feet. I love heels!

I could pretty much run in platform wedges- they are much more stable than pointy high heels.

I'm wondering if women who have high arches can wear high heels more comfortably than a woman with "flat feet". Those high heel shoes pictured earlier would be the death of me, I would be lucky to lunge upright across the room in them. LOL! I have flat feet with no arch, it's just uncomfortable for me to wear anything higher than 3".

There may be something to this. I have high arches and narrow feet and heels are a natural thing to me.

I, too, have very high arches and heels have always been more comfortable. Even with sandals or otherwise what would normally be considered a "flat shoe", I still need an inch or two to walk comfortably.

Yes! It's good to hear this. It's much easier on my feet if the heel is a little elevated.

yellowsnow...do you have foot pain normally when you walk a bit or stand for a long time? Do you have flat feet or high arches...back pain?
