If you want good, comfortable, decent, quality shoes, then don't do lolita brands. Do actual, real shoe brands with a rep for being long lasting and comfortable. Not something like Louboutin whose rep is built on red soles and being expensive. Find out what brands are known for and chose from there, like Clark’s is known for being good working class shoes, being padded and comfortable shoes, Scholl’s is known as an orthopedic brand that pads their shoes every which way.
Lolita brands are great, but generally they all started out as clothing brands first and then get into shoes and bags as a way to "complete" the look. You'll also want to keep in mind, burando shoes are actually good, at least in my experience they have consistently been better, more solid, more padded and comfier than taobao or replicas. So if people are even complaining about burando shoes, do you really think some cheaper indie lolita brand is gonna be much better? Heck no.
So if you want good shoes and even burando doesn’t cut it for you, find the actual orthopedic shoe shops that specialise in actually making decent, reliable shoes.
If you’re a sweet lolita or you just desperately need some lolita shoes purely for the looks, then shoe inserts are your friend. Go half a size up and fill them with whatever padding you need, get the inserts with arch support if you need them.
