I am 46 years old. I quit wearing heals a few years ago because I couldn't find any that were cute and comfortable. Not even kitten heals were comfortable anymore. I'm still wanting to wear cute shoes, but unfortunately was only able to find ugly Granny shoes that were comfortable. Making the discovery of this shoe was a huge surprise!For a heal of 3", this is remarkably comfortable. No pinching of toes due to gravity forcing them to the front of the footbed. No more pain in the ball as it bares the weight of the whole body. The unique design of the footbed cradles your foot, gives excellent arch support and distributes the weight of your body evenly. I have worn them around the house and they feel great. The wedding happens in May, so I will let you know how I fare.
