    When will women learn to buy comfortable shoes?

    Ladies, we need to talk about something very serious that occured on American Idol last night. Sure, "serious" and "American Idol" shouldn't be in the same sentence, but it needs to be addressed. In her opening interview, the large and fabulous Mandisa complained to Ryan that her shoes were killing her. Most women would and should power through this, but Mandisa took up Ryan's offer to remove the shoes and performed BAREFOOT on national television.

    Words cannot describe how disgusted I am by this, and it actually made NOT vote for her (as I had planned to all week). Too many women make the mistake of choosing uncomfortable and unrealistic shoes. Any woman could have looked at Mandisa strappy stilleto in the store and easily determined that it was not the right shoe for them. Very few women can get through more than 15 minutes in very high heels - you basically have to be superskinny with giant sturdy feet like Paris Hilton to wear heels higher than 3 inches. Even if you do somehow manage to get through the night with them - they can cause serious damage to your feet. So you can save yourself a lot of pain and barefoot humiliation just by choosing suitable shoes that you can wear for hours at a time.

    Fortunately, there are brands that offer comfortable dress shoes. My favorite comfort brands are Cloud Nine by Nine West, Aerosoles, and Easy Spirit. Because mostly older women buy these shoes, some of the styles can be quite matronly (to say the least), but if you dig through all the styles you can find a fantastic and comfortable shoe. For example, look at these cute shoes:

    Aerosoles - Refresh (Azalea Combo) - Women's
    Aerosoles - Bubble Trap (Tan Leather) - Women's

    Aerosoles - Refresh (Azalea Combo) - Women's

    $55.95 (Original Price $63.95)
    Aerosoles - Bubble Trap (Tan Leather) - Women's

    $83.95
    Just by looking at them you can't tell they are extra-cushioned, but your feet will know the difference!

    Keep in the mind the following tips when choosing an a comfortable shoe.

    1) Choose a sturdy heel. A thicker heel is still dressy and gives you more ground to work with.

    Easy Spirit - Await (Dk Blue/Dk Blue Leather) - Women's
    Easy Spirit - Felicidad (Dark Red) - Women's

    Easy Spirit - Felicidad (Dark Red) - Women's

    $76.95 (Original Price $92.95)
    Easy Spirit - Await (Dk Blue/Dk Blue Leather) - Women's

    $72.95

    2) Get a lower heel. A heel between 1 and 2 inches is still a heel - and instead of dancing barefoot at weddings like a hillbilly - you can actually dance in these.
    Aerosoles - Cutting Edge (Buttercup Leather) - Women's
    Aerosoles - Microphone (Blue Leather) - Women's

    Aerosoles - Microphone (Blue Leather) - Women's

    $51.95 (Original Price $62.95)
    Aerosoles - Cutting Edge (Buttercup Leather) - Women's

    $64.95 (Original Price $72.95)

    3) Get a wedge heel. Bless the wedge heel! It has all the height but none of the horror of a high heel shoe. Many designers make fantastic wedge heels, so you don't have to stick to the "comfort" brands. But here are some my favorites anyway.

    Aerosoles - Masheen (Pink Leather) - Women's
    Aerosoles - Planket (Caribbean Leather) - Women's
    Aerosoles - Masheen (Pink Leather) - Women's

    $54.95 (Original Price $69.95)
    Aerosoles - Planket (Caribbean Leather) - Women's

    $61.95

    Aerosoles make the most comfortable shoes!! I've recently found my self looking at their catalog when one of the ladies at my office gets it in. I didn't realize how fashionable their shoes were, but know that I know that I think I'm going to have to make a shoe purchase.
