Looking to buy a particular pair of shoes

Basically, I've had these shoes for a few years now, and it's not so much that I love them, but that they are the only closed-toe, non-sneaker shoes I can actually walk in. [more inside]

Looking for light pink dress flats for a wedding...

I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding in two weeks, and I desperately need pink flats! The dress looks like this. I did find shoes that I like (these) but the eBay seller mislabeled them as size 41 and they were actually 39.5, so they didn't fit. I very much liked the style of them, however. Can you help?

Dressing nicely in cold bus commute

If I'm wearing ugly but comfy boots to commute and change into flats at work, what do I do about my socks? Put on cold sweaty socks at the end of the day or schlep fresh ones? Please show your work. I've already given up finding shoes to change into that will hide my socks and can go with dresses and pants. [more inside]

Insoles for Dressy Ballet Flats

I own, and love, Naturalizer Maude flats for working as a bank teller, where I stand at least half the day and constantly hop off and on my stool. When they're new, the comfort insole is perfect for my feet. However, after a year of use, I've squashed any cushioning they have and they're killing me. What insoles will fit into a dressy ballet flat that does not have removable insoles? [more inside]

Can These Shoes Be Fixed?

I bought some flats. The first time I wore them, they dug into the back of my ankles (on both feet), and made them bleed - it took my feet about two weeks to heal. Is there a way to fix this? [more inside]

Flats with a Hidden Wedge?

Simple as this: my favorite pair of shoes is wearing out. It's a pair of Hush Puppies black suede flats with a hidden wedge--i.e. they look like flats, but are actually just a bit higher and more comfortable (for me, anyway). So the question is: where can I find flats with a hidden wedge?

Higher-quality replacements for beloved Target shoes

I adore these Merona cut-out flats (wedges?), but they keep falling apart -- they're $20, so no big surprise there. Please help me find something in the same style that will hold up better! [more inside]
