Default Comfort walking shoes poll

We ladies find it hard to find comfort walking shoes that look great so I was hanging out on the Nordstrom's website and decided to get your opinion. This time I didn't pick any cheap shoes alternatives foot comfort is just to important.

Shoe A (Söfft 'Padua' Skimmer $89.95)

Shoe B (Munro 'Cindi' Pump $144.95)

Shoe C (PIKOLINOS 'Ginebra' Mary Jane $164.95)

Shoe D (ECCO 'Cloud' Mary Jane $119.95)

While I really think shoes B and C are cute for real comfort I chose D. They definitely look much more comfortable and without the higher style heel for me at least would be the best choice.. A is cute but would not bive me the support I need.

Default Comfort Walking Shoes Poll

It depends on how much walking you plan to do. If you mean "walking"
as in shopping at the mall, or walking tours, I would not pick any of the choices offered. I have problem feet with arthritis and painful bunions. For serious walking, I wear New Balance walking shoes. No, they're not fashionable, but for me, these shoes create a pain-free walk so that I can enjoy my outing.

If you're just doing light walking and some sitting, then A is really cute.

Kat,

I think I would call those "strolling shoes". I don't think anyone would want to put thirty blocks of walking in while wearing any of them.

Take care,
Mike

To be truthful, "none of the above" look like a comfortable walking shoe to me, but "D" would be my closest choice, only because it has a strap, and I can't keep the slip-ons on my feet!

Give me my comfortable, sturdy, athletic shoe any day over anything that fancy or with a heel!

I chose "B", but "D" is probably the most comfortable. The only problem with "D" is that it looks like something some" Nurse Cratchet" would wear. IMO! O.K.,,go ahead and flame me.... Just my opinion.

I wouldn't be able to walk from one end of our office to the other in a, b or c. D looks more comfortable, but for real walking I wear tennis shoes (sketchers). I also have bunions on my big toes and shoes, most any kind of shoe, hurt my feet. I hate shoes!!

None of the above. For walking, I pick my sneakers every time with nice fluffy socks. Last thing I want is blisters.
