Has anybody worn Vibrams to the parks? I wore Tevas last time and hope to pick up another pair when I'm in FL, but I just remembered my Vibrams, but I'm not sure if they'd be comfy for a whole day in the parks.

Both are priced in the $50-60 range so pretty affordable. I got mine at Famous Footwear, but if you have a Skechers store nearby, they have a much bigger selection.
Another vote for the Go Walk. I bought some before our recent trip and I did not wear them before we left. The first time I ever wore them was for our Epcot day and my feet were comfy all day.

After reading the positive comments here I went online and ordered a pair of Go Walks. I have wide feet so I hope they fit. They look really cute and I would love to have them for our upcoming Disney trip.

Fingers are crossed they work out!!

another person who wears New Balance cross trainers or Teva sandels..depends on the weather..
Any comfy, broken in shoe is good..I feel so bad for the women in high heels..in the am, they wear heels but their feet begin to hurt and by -pm they switch shoes to comfy shoes/ or buy Disney shoes...

I don't want anything slowing me down at WDW! But, I am in my mid twenties and I love shoes. I'd love ballet flats or something else cute I can wear over and over. I really don't like sneakers. I've never found ones that don't hurt or make me sweat like crazy. And I tend to wear dresses, so sneakers don't look the best.

I'm convinced that stylish orthopedic shoes don't exist!

I know you guys have to know of good shoes to walk around Disney! What do you wear at Disney?
I prefer to wear cutish shoes, but I have a bad back so I've really struggled with what I can wear. Last summer I found Dr. Scholls joliet shoes. They have a slightly thicker bottom, but not gigantic like other "comfort" shoes I've seen. They look like ballet flats on. I wore them in Europe last summer, walking at least as much as I walk in Disney per day, and I my back actually hurt less.

Omg I tried on the go walk and go run and both feel amazing. I'm just concerned how thin they are all day on hard pavement. I'm going to buy them and wear them on a local zoo trip this summer to test them....

DH and I always buy a new pair of cross-trainers a few weeks before our trip and wear them to break them in and make sure they are comfy for long walks. I like Pumas and he's a New Balance guy.
