You've gotten me through a LOT of boring classes, and my friends are always curious as to what I'm looking at! I've gotten so many friends hooked, I've lost count. So I'm a law student. I volunteer at the courthouse in my city, which calls for a lot of walking up and down stairs (the elevators don't exactly cooperate). Could you please help me kind a pair of cute heels that are not too high, look professional, and are still comfortable? I've been wearing four-inch heels, and I've definitely gotten some comments ("My, those must hurt"). They DO hurt, and I hate having to switch between my four-inch heels and Rainbows and look ridiculous walking around the courthouse. I used to own a pair of Steve Madden low black heels that fit snugly and were so comfortable, but that was years ago and I can no longer wear them. I'm a size 7, 7.5, and my budget is around $100. Thanks for the help! Appreciate it."
HI Candice! I'm Found of You, and I refuse to wear uncomfortable shoes. Rockport and Aerosoles have some good options that don't look too orthopedic and are under $100. If you're willing to spend a little more, Cole Haan has a great line of comfy shoes called "Air" that I think look even better.
1 - Rockport Lilah Pump ($88, on sale, in four colors)
2 - Rockport Grace Flat Bow Pump ($80, on sale, in two colors)
3 - Rockport Janae Pump ($98, on sale, in six colors)
4 - Cole Haan Air Tali Wedge ($95, on sale, in three colors)
5 - Cole Haan Air Talia Mid Pump ($130, on sale, in three colors)
6 - Aerosoles Tapestry Heels ($30-79, in six colors)

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
