A couple months ago I wrote a post about my latest pair of painful high heels (seriously, my toenail is still bruised from wearing them for three hours!) and begged the Frisky community for help finding a pair of truly comfortable heels.

Last week I was wandering the aisles of Nordstrom Rack and found the cutest pair of blue suede Franco Sarto pumps (shown above). When I slipped them on, they fit my feet perfectly and felt shockingly comfortable thanks to a bit of padding in the sole and a relatively low heel, at least compared to the 5-inch monsters I always accidentally buy and then never wear. I thought I had finally hunted down my white whale: a pair of heels that were cute and comfortable, but then I wore them over the weekend, and after about an hour, I wanted to DIE. Seriously, my feet are still aching, and now I’m feeling hopeless about the existence of truly comfortable high heels. So let’s talk this out, shall we? I would love to hear about any brands you love, or random tips for making uncomfortable shoes more comfortable. Do my feet just need to get more accustomed (and by “accustomed” I mean numb) to wearing heels? Are you one of those people who wears high heels every day? How in God’s name do you do it?!
After the jump, check out other Frisky staffers’ picks for most and least comfortable heels, and please (pretty please) share your own in the comments! Keep reading »
