Comfortable Walking Shoes Update

Ok friends. I told you I was ordering comfy walking shoes. Well, they came in, and I have reviews for you.

First up are these Walking Cradles. They are the style “Satin.” I wore them yesterday and walked 8000 steps (according to my FitBit.). They were super comfortable. The sole is cushy and didn’t wear down during the day. I ordered a 7 wide (which is about down 1/2 a size. I’m normally a 7, but these fit great) . I have a wide foot and often find flats a bit constricting. These were perfect. They didn’t cut into my feet at all. The leather was soft and didn’t rub a blister. The soles are a bit thicker than most flats I have, but that’s what makes them comfy.

I also ordered these Rose Petal “Hardrock 2.” They are also 7 wides. I love the soft leather, the slight elastic on the side, and the slight heel. They “click” when you walk, so they feel dressy. The peep toe is stylish too. They aren’t quite as comfy as the Walking Cradles, so I wouldn’t go all-day sightseeing, but walking to dinner and back would be fine. but I wore them all day at work without any pain or blisters. Win.

I got both pair on Zappos because I love their customer service, but I’m sure you could find them online for a sale somewhere if you looked.
Just filling you in just in case you are looking for comfy flats. I just posted those review because I liked the shoes, no compensation or anything here.


  1. Vegas Breakfast: Hash House A Go Go at the Quad Casino. Heaven!

  2. Love it! Always looking for a comfortable flat!


  3. I’m actually in need of a new pair of black flats so I’ll keep these in mind. Always looking for that balance between comfy and stylish. Thanks!

  4. I have wider feet, too, and a heel spur, so I have a heck of a time finding good shoes. Will have to give these a try next time!

  5. I like the dressier ones and broke mine last year at a funeral. Embarrassing! However these look indestructible. 🙂

  6. Love the Walking Cradles look! My feet are wide and it’s so hard to find comfy/stylish shoes!

  7. Same here. So hard to find comfy, wide flats. Glad you had some luck.

  8. I always seem to have a hard time finding comfortable walking shoes that look like dressy shoes. Shoes you would wear to a nice dinner out, for instance. I have wider feet for a woman, so that does not help! Haha.

  9. Ooh, those look cute. I’m always trying to find dressy shoes that won’t kill my feet!

  10. Thank you for sharing with us. My feet are wide, and I have a terrible time finding shoes that fit. While I’m extremely hesitant to order shoes online because of this, I may have to try Zappos sometime. Glad you found some that work for you!

  11. Those both look great. I am a “flat” person and love a good pair that is also comfortable.
