I'm a new teacher and I LOVE cute shoes, but none of them are ever comfortable enough to make it through being on my feet ALL day long. Every pair I've bought that have seemed comfortable at the store end up leaving me about to die in the middle of the school day! I'm looking for any kind of cute flats that are super comfortable and supportive, preferably under $100 (or even less if possible!). I'm a size 8. THANK YOU! Michelle"
