More to Think About When Finding Comfortable ShoesHere are some additional things to think about when you're looking for the most comfortable fit.
Look for shoes with round or oval toes pointy-toed shoes can force your toes into an unnatural and uncomfortable position.
Look for hidden causes of uncomfortable shoes. Many times what makes a pair of shoes uncomfortable can be found on the inside. exposed seems, bits of rubber or leather that rub against the back of your heel, or openings that press against the top of your foot all can make an attractive pair of shoes unbearable to wear.
As a general rule flats are more comfortable for you and better for heels. But not all flats are created equal some can really be uncomfortable to wear for any length of time.
Keep in mind you need a comfortable shape, good arch support, and look out for those exposed seems inside.
