Can't wear flats?
I just realized it is almost impossible for me to wear flats today. I put on a pair of flat suede boots this morning and before I had even left the house my feet were aching! I changed into my normal four inch and was fine.

my great-grandmother couldn't wear flats. when she was in her 90's she was still in heels all day, around the house, etc because her feet were so used to a lifetime of heels. this can't be good!!

Oh I am def. the same way! It took me a while of walking around in the house with flats on to get used to them.

It's good to know I'm not the only one here in heels!

I can wear flip flips no problem, but flats hurt big toe for whatever reason. They're not too small or anything, too big if anything.

I still wear them though, I'm hoping they just need breaking in or something.

if you find flats too 'painful' to wear you might want to try getting a pair of orthodic insoles for your flat shoes... they work wonders...

I can't wear "flat flats" either, I prefer shoes with a minimum heel of 1 inch. The slight raise of the foot's heel does wonder for the balance and posture. That is, your butt looks much better.

Also, I second brian's advice: often the problem with flats is that they don't take the foot's arch into account. I know this because my best (and nearly only...) non-sneaker flat shoes are
a) a pair of Birkenstocks and
b) a pair of Timberland boots which I bought after trying on almost every pair of flat boots in the city and feeling that they were neither comfortable nor aesthetically pleasant (I'm about 1,5 meters tall and they made me look like a little Hobbit with flat feet!!:p ) And they have both a good, comfortable insole and a heel of about one inch.

Generally speaking, I live in heels because I'm short and because nearly all my trousers are cut for 3 or 4 inch shoes...
