Hi! I need to find nude heels for a wedding I'm in. I would love some help searching! Here are my criteria:

-nude
-vegan (a-durr)
-heel on the low side - i am not good at heels
-arch support
-somewhat comfortable
-not pleather unless you can vouch that they don't pinch the skin
-size 7
-not ridiculously expensive

If you can help me find what I need, I would be so grateful! I might even unearth my stash of now discontinued vegan dark chocolate Kit Kats as a reward...

Payless has a line of memory foam dress shoes that are impressively comfortable: http://www.payless.com/store/catalog/su ... egoryType= I think most people can handle three-inch heels, and I think those pumps are extremely sturdy, but if your'e worried, go with a wedge and you'll be wobble-free. See the second page of the search, as well. They are all plastic but I can't imagine them pinching, provided they're not too small. I always wear pantyhose, though, so I hadn't really thought about it. The inside is lined, though, so plastic shouldn't be touching your skin anyway. It seems like heels sort of curve along with your foot and provide some support that way, but heels are terrible for you overall so I'm not sure it's worth it to worry about arch support for half a day. Good luck!

Yes, I have the non-patent Karmen pump that oink linked to and they are the most comfortable dress shoes I own.They look like they have a wide selection of white - tan - brown spectrum colors available, so you should be able to find a nude-for-you pair

these are cute, but not sure they meet all the criteria: http://www.lulus.com/products/mixx-shuz-nicki-nude-pointed-d-orsay-kitten-heels/83618.html#tab-description only a few pairs left, one a size 7! or these: http://www.lulus.com/products/bamboo-thelma-03-nude-nubuck-ankle-strap-pointed-heels/104874.html though those are a bit taller..

but looking around lulu may be worth a peek, since they have many less expensive options and variety of styles. can't say toooo much for the comfort thing though.

ETA: or these: http://shopruche.com/roxy-pointed-toe-heels.html ? or these: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-heels/on-the-wedge-of-glory

and i know these are not exactly right, in that they aren't exactly nude (silver?), but these heels (i have them in two of the fabric prints - if you click on "heels + wedges" you can see the other fabrics/patterns they offer the shoe in) are SO comfy and short heeled, but still very classy. http://www.bcfootwear.net/Home.tpl?page=singleitem.inc&cart=130727616556&sku=INWINNE9S1&H_P_Special=INWINNE9S1#

I will echo the rec for the Payless memory foam shoes. I have a pair of black faux suede wedges with a decently tall heel from them, and I'm super prone to foot pain in my heels and my arches, but I wore those shoes to a wedding, and to a funeral without any pain. And I really, really can't wear heels, like I live in sneakers, and boots with insoles added.

When/why did they discontinue dark chocolate Kit Kats?!

Glad you found shoes.
