Masseys has shoes for everyone and every occasion. I am sure you can find what you need there.

Yes...the fact that there is a little bit of platform keeps your heel from being hitched up so high.

Also try:

zappos.com

...where you enter what height, color, etc of shoe. I've bought many a pair here.

Their descriptions are true though I’d caveat most of their shoes have hard leather soles. Which of course are not like the comfort of rubber soles.

Years ago, and I do mean years, there used to these things that were essentially earrings for shoes. Decorative clip ons. So you could wear a pair of simple pumps to work, and dress them up for evening. My mom had a few pairs.

OMG. Shoe clips. Just found them on Etsy.

I'm familiar with all the known comfort brands so I'm looking through them in the meantime (Born, Naturalizer, etc.)

The ankle strap is a nice sexy touch for this low heel!

Thanks so far guys. These may be about the fanciest I've come across & they come in different heel heights, but still don't know how comfy they are until I try them on:

Tallysmom, I remember those too...never had any though.

The soles! OMG, do NOT forget to scuff them up. I fell, hard, twisted my ankle and have a huge bruise because I forgot to do that. But they are comfy, and pretty (these, they are gorgeous https://mgemi.com/boots/the-cavallo/...l/#!/color/101 ).

Those are on my wishlist. I got some similar Steve Madden boots. Not sure year but I havenít decided if they will be staples.

Super comfortable with heels that high?????? Well everybody has a different definition.

I lived in 3 and 4 inch heels (though often platform type) throughout my 20's, but at this point in my life I can't go above an inch and half or so (maybe 2 at most?) without pain. My feet are nice looking, but I consider that I have very "bad feet" for my age given this issue.

Giving up the height was a tough adjustment for my vanity at first, but now I'll never again choose shoes that cause me pain. I do have a collection of nice looking flat and low heeled shoes, but given that I also have a wide toe box, I seldom find them on a budget, unfortunately.

OP, go talk to a shoe salesperson at Nordstrom's about your specific foot issues. They really know their brands.

Anything Sam Edelman is super comfortable for me. I cannot wear Steve Madden. The arch is too high or something and they cripple me in under an hour.

I live downtown Fort Lauderdale and walk everywhere and have literally walked miles in them. Three miles one night. They come in ten colors and I have them in five and the nude goes with everything.
