Could you do a wedged heel?

Wedges are usually way easier to walk in and provide a little more stability. You might also try a flatform! I can’t wear anything with a heel, but flatforms work when I want some height or something a little more fun. These black ones from ASOS are super sleek and will go with just about everything.

Wedges and thick heels are your best friend. Also some booties with a thick heel are fancy enough for a party!

I totally agree with you – I used to wear heels all the time but since seeing a small bunion and trying to wear flats most of the time, I’ve completely lost the motivation or ability to do it anymore!

If you find that some of the fancy flats aren’t too “feet friendly”, you can try one of those Dr. Scholl’s pads.

But yeah wedges are killers shoes that don’t pain your feet too much.

Some ideas:
If you plan to wear ankle boots, a good way of dressing them up is by wearing shoe chains on them as seen here
If your ballet flats have that little loop at the back, you could attach some bracelets and make it an ankle chain as seen here

Alternatively:
1) You could try wearing heels that have this band that goes around your foot for stability like this one
2) You could also try wearing espadrilles, they seem lighter and relatively easier to walk in. Here is a picture of celebrities wearing it.
3) Take a cue from Alexa Chung and pair your look with dressy flats. Embellished loafers/ballet flats are great.
4) Kitten heels perhaps?

I’m loving the new block heels that are making their rounds this holiday season. I can’t wear stilettos anymore either, these babies are a god send!

Thanks for all your suggestions! I finally invested in a pair of flatforms. They look amazing and I can still walk in them all day.

Platforms and stacked heels can also be an option

I also like Mary Jane flats that have some glitter. I saw some at Anthropologie and Zara this season that looked good

1. kitten heels

2. wedge heels ( easier to walk in and adds height)

3. platform heels ( the platforms adds support)

I notice that Zara has cute fancy flats every winter season. There was one from last season I wish I had purchased - a studded mary jane flats.

Could you manage a stacked or block heel?  Those still give you the height you want, but without the tiny little stilleto.  I find block heels to be really comfortable too!
