@chai2,
Definately. I've never been hurt by SAS. Doc Martin, Ecco, and Rockport won't work for me. When I get one large enough in the toe box, there is way too much movement in the heel area. Now, if SAS would just whack about $100.00 off the price. . . .

Not all the time, probably. The higher the quality of the shoe the more comfortable it may bring. So, it would really depend on the brand. There are many wedge shoes that are nice in style and at the same time comfortable to wear,. Try one!

Those pointy shoes women wear hurt the most. They leave quite an impression on my back side.


I wouldn't dream of kicking someone while wearing pointy shoes. The accompanying stiletto heels make me feel a bit unbalanced when I swing my kicking leg.

I usually console myself by stomping of the offender's foot with my stilettos. Much safer for me.

coincidentally I was wearing these again today. So comfy.

I've got 4 pairs of Franco Sartos under my desk at work. Always reliable for me - even with fairly substantial heels.

Check out the Easy Spirit anti-gravity line. I have two pair of sandals, and two pair of athletic shoes of this type, and they are wonderful. There is something in the heel, that causes you to feel like you are "walking on air".

And no, I do not buy spike heels with pointy toes.....................any more. Years ago, I used to, but they killed my feet. Shoes being scrunched in a configuration that is against your natural foot, will eventually make a mess of them.

Actually, for about 6 months, in the '70's, there was a style that was absolutely perfect. It had a rounded toe, and very high heel, but the heel was thick. I could run around in them all day, with no discomfort. Unfortunately, they went out of style before they wore out!

My friend in Cali emailed me a photo of her new shoes. They do look nice but not sure I could walk in them.

We wear these around the house, kind of ugly but sure are comfortable and warm on the hardwood floors.

@The Pentacle Queen,
Check the quality of the shoe. And also do not wear a shoe with worn out heel.

@The Pentacle Queen,
Take care of your feet before its too late. I agree with other answers that If there is a regular problem with you wearing one side of your shoe well before the other, you should probably consider a gait assessment.. However you can also try a ballerina flat.

@thecleedus01,
If you have back problems, a very flat shoe can just exacerbate the problem. Nowadays, even the majority of bedroom slippers are very flat. I have thrown out quite a few of them, because of back issues.

I used to wear a Daniel Green slipper that had a wedge. They have cheapened the slipper so much that not only do a have to buy a size and width larger than usual, but the damn things wear out in a few months.

@Setanta,
Can I take this that most women will prefer style and beauty over comfort or is it a matter of finding the right fit for you foot?

@The Pentacle Queen,
I dont know if you have ever tried going for Wooden clogs.
They are so comfortable and supportive of your feet. So your question of "Does nice shoes always hurt" is solved I suppose because clogs are very stylish, they have all the rage that a nice pair of shoes should have.

@AlanGloud,
Clogs can also hurt and not fit. So your spam about comfortable and supportive does not fit all feet.

@saab,
..and clogs certainly do not fit any definition of "nice".

Odd that I didn't respond in this thread. I must have gone on and on about my feet, sometime earlier than the thread was posted, and so was quiet and listened to others.

One time years ago I was in San Francisco with a guy I was crazy about and we walked the city. Not every street and hill, but a lot of them over a few days. I now forget what the shoes were, since this was in the 70's, but on the last day I could hardly walk. I visited the office of an orthopedic surgeon I knew. He took a foot xray of some sort. Told me that I had high arches and needed entirely different shoes, and suggested running shoes. Told me that people with quite high arches tend to slap their feet (probably where the metatarsals meet and greet each other), that our feet don't roll as naturally as others do.

All I could find in the stores back then were men's running shoes. I bought a pair of men's Adidas (not sure if I told them I needed cushioning and arch support, but my feet felt better almost immediately, do maybe I did.

By that time I had already stopped wearing very high heels (very high heels to me means 4"). Some time after that, I started jogging and found my best shoes to be Nike Air Max. They still are, but there are some other athletic shoes that are also ok for me. I had read up in Runners' World all about shoes...

This also affected my choice of dress shoes and later work shoes - a lot of hospital people back then wore Danskos, being on their feet pretty much all day long. Danskos are perfect for my feet, pricy to me, but worth it. I'm up to wearing a 9 equivalent now (a Dansko 40); will try a 41 next time I shop. I shop via our local REI store (they tend to have online sales). I think they might not be right for everybody else's feet.
I later wore Danskos "in the field", as in mapping landscapes. They can take wear and tear.

All these years later, my feet are in pretty good shape, knock on wood.
