Can anyone suggest something 3 or more inches high that is easy to walk in? I know that's asking for a lot! I desperately need some and I know there will also be walking involved. What has the most cushioning?

Try for a boot or something with a chunky heel.

I have some shoes like that but I'm not wearing them today so I can't tell you the brand. But when I bought them I was at a department store and I told the guy basically the same thing and he sold me a pair that he said the women in the cosmetics department liked because they were on their feet all day. So, check out the shoes on the women in the cosmetics dept. or anywhere else women who dress well and walk around all day and ask them.

Personally I don't consider anything over 2.5" walkable but I know many women swear by Cole Haan Nike Air and Taryn Rose. They are both very expensive though. What is your budget?

Walkable heels...hmm.
Look into Riekers, or Munroes, in no particular order.
But 3 inches is indeed a lot to ask for.

I agree it's a lot to ask for and it's all vanity on my part. Now that I've said that, I will probably fall down and break a leg. I usually wear New Balance running shoes, or winter boots, or sandals. Always sensible shoes.

Since I haven't wasted any money on heels for 30 years, I guess just this once, cost doesn't matter.

I've had Cole Haan flats before but never heels. And Aerosoles as well. I love shoes. Except for heels.

How about Naturalizer, Softspots, or Aerosoles? I have two pairs of Softspots shoes, about 2 1/1 inches high, and they are really comfy. I wear them shopping etc. (I originally bought them at JC Penneys) They are not "old lady" shoes, although I'm sure you will find a lot in that style when looking for comfortable shoes.

I'm otherwise a wimp at wearing high heels, I went to a wedding last fall wearing 3" stilletto heels, and I looked like I had been drinking before I even arrived.

Aerosoles or Naturalizer make 3 inch heels?

I have a fair amount of comfort shoes that are at least close to 3 inches, but they tend to be of the wedge platform sandal variety, not pumps. Not sure what the OP is looking for.

I have very good luck finding taller Clark's, especially in the Indigo by Clark's line. I don't buy it unless I get at least 2 inches. Usually 2.5 - 3.

I also recently got a wonderful pair of very attractive clogs by Born that look like boots when I wear them with long pants. They definitely give me 3 inches.
