Yep. When you try them on in the store they are deceptively comfortable, then after you wear them for a few hours if feels like your feet are going to fall off. Also, the dreaded "wearing in" of shoes. *Shudders* I get lots of Party Feet (little squishy pads that you put on the heel/sole/etc of the shoe) and hope for the best.
Many pairs of riding boots I've owned were the same way. They're built for a purpose, just like your high heeled shoes, and just like your high heeled shoes, they sacrifice comfort to be good at that purpose. You just kind of have to accept it if you worry about that purpose. But just like there are some pairs of riding boots that can be comfortable for all day wear I'm sure there are some heels that are comfortable for all day wear.
Pretty much any pair of heels - 4 hours plus - hurt my feet. I mean like proper heels, I wear like 2/3 inch heels in the day.
But yeah when I'm wearing heels - if it's for a long time, no matter how big the platform, wide the heel, or deceptively comfortable they were when I put them on, the balls of my feet always end up hurting at some point.
Not anymore. Nowadays I buy for both comfort and style and if a shoe - no matter how good it may look - doesn't fit the "comfort" criteria then I won't purchase it.
Personally, I learned my lesson about 2 years ago; I had this gorgeous red pair of high-end heels and I wore them out to this one event I had to attend. Anyways, the first hour was fine, but every second after that my feet were in so much pain. I didn't realize how bad it was until I finally got home and took them off. There was a fair amount of blood considering, and I had huge noticeable scars on my feet for the next year and a bit. After that incident, I vowed "never again".
I own over 100 pairs of heels and the majority of them hurt my feet after a while but they look good, it nearly impossible to find heels that are comfortable for long hours unless they have some platform at the front or the heel is only about 3-4 inches :)
I think every girl has shoes that hurt their feet.. it could be because they are made out of thicker materials or even different materials. Could also be the straps are different or the shapes different.. sometimes I have to chose certain shaped shoes to stop it hurting
I won't buy a pair of shoes if they don't fit my feet right. I have a couple pairs I'll throw a band-aid on the back of my ankle first, but that's the extent of discomfort I'll put up with.
That said, I was walking around in my friend's 7" (with a platformed front) heels...and I really didn't have a hard time of it. I don't don the heels often as I usually walk to campus/work and back in crap weather, but I seem to have a high heel endurance.
I have, but I don't use them since I rather wear ugly shoes than ones that kills my feet.
Everyone's feet are different, just like body types. One brand might make shoes that fit's feet that are broader and some that are thinner, some that have an higher arch and some that are more flat. Everyone might walk differently too. I tend to wear my left shoe more than the right one so there is a lot of factors to why a shoe would feel uncomfortable. :)
Yeah I do they all end Up brusing My feet I Don't know If that's the word for it, some shoes are Good just to wear in An inside enviroment or just to use sitted down lol... But I do have some comfortable ones... Some are confortable for the first 30 min than it isnt...
i prefer flats than heels. so my shoes does not hurt my foots. maybe becasue you did not choose the fitted shoes when you buy it.
It might be the shape of your foot - some people are just more uncomfortable in shoes (any shoes) than others. It depends.
Other than the shape of your foot, have you tried Steve Madden? They make crazy high heels that somehow are always still comfortable to me.
yeah I do. buy inner soles at the drugstore, they help. some are cheap brands and poorer quality. like, my cheap shoes from some no name store that are not real leather are a lot less comfortable than my similar steve madden ones or zara ones, that are just as tall AND don't have any sole in them.
