Anchie, I may give them a try, the more I look at them the more I like them.

Did anyone say dress birks? No? No?

Birkenstocks x manolo

Hi Staysfit - I have a morton's neuroma and need to wear a 3/4 orthotic so I also need a stiff footbed. Did anyone mention Eileen Fisher? I have several of her booties and they are amongst the more comfortable and stylish go with everything shoes I own. Pikolinos are also very comfy and well made. They look less sturdy but wear like iron. I also like Merrell, Paul Green, Ariat, london fly, stuart weitzman for dressy boots and shoes and aquatalia. But first two are my favorite brands for comfort and style. I also have one pr of blondo lug soles that are super comfy but that's my only experience with the brand. Hope that helps!

Gryffin, thanks for the suggestions. While I do not have Morton’s Neuroma, I “spin” my right foot slightly when I walk or run. It causes foot pain between my metatarsals if the footbed is not stiff enough.

Comfort shoes are the best for everyday life!! Sometimes, I feel comfortable shoes do not look feminine, but wearing heels all the time is not an option. Luckily for me, fashion is introducing comfortable shoes more often than before.

My choices for comfortable shoes are sneakers, oxfords, flat boots, and ballerinas. That is what I would recommend to you.

Here you can see a link about comfortable shoes for season SS23.

And here Michael Kors sneakers, which are great: smart elegance, and comfortable.

Also, I normally avoid wedges because I believe they are not elegant and it is a heel, which is not as comfortable as a flat.

Maybe you can get some ideas here.

Have you looked at Ecco Sartorelle 25 wingtip Oxford? They might be too wide in heel for you. I goth them bevy they come in suede for my bunion problems and laceup to help the fit problem I have now that I need to size up a half size. What works for me is somehow the toe is a mild almond- toe but is wide enough across the toe joints to still work with my foot issues, so, this is the closest thing to a pointy toe I can manage, except for a few ankle strap flats I’m clinging to for a rare dressy event. They are not all- day shoes for me though, but allow me some styling options beyond sneakers.
