Angry Are you on your feet all day?

Looking for suggestions on comfortable work shoes! I always buy some cheap a$$ pair from like Ross or wherever, but it's time to break open the wallet. Gel insoles are nice, but want to hear what's worked for everyone else.

What kind of work?

I went with Timberland Pit Boss and added gel insoles. They have been holding up well.

Could be worse. You could be in the market for a comfortable pair of these for your job instead:

Skechers Memory Foam.... Never thought I would be caught in Skechers but they are very very comfy if you're on your feet a lot....

I work in a jail and am on my feet 8 to 16 hours a day. I wear plain black new balance. The boots were just destroying my feet. I have wide feet and could never find a boot comfortable enough. Tried 511, danner, Nike, hi tech, and bates, went to new balance walking shoes and will never go back. I would rather risk a broken toe than feet that hurt 24 7

I'll have to check out NB. My feet are slightly wide as well so it can be tough finding comfortable shoes.

I did retail for 10 years. When I was management we would walk 10 - 12 miles a shift. I found padded inserts worked better than Gel since gel can get pushed to one side and cause blisters. I would just wear a nice pair of running/tennis shoes since they were very light and are built to put up with miles and miles of running.

These as well as New Balance.

Both are very comfortable shoes. I always wore Nike before but they don't even compare to the comfort of these two.

NO. i didnt like these, I load on a dock for a shipping company and the memory gel Sketchers felt great for about 2 months then before 3 months i had wore the gel down to the sole and gave myself a blister on the ball of my foot. I need a Pair of boots that last longer then 3 months... I went to the shoe store and got a pair of work boots by the brand "Keen" they feel like tennis shoes .. They were $140.00 But I had a 20% off coupon clipped from a paper add. so that helped a little... Good Luck

+1 i also wear plain black wide NB shoes, they are durable also. I never have sore feet anymore, i used to buy the cheap shoes from walmart and i would also have sore feet. but NB is definitely the way to go.

I bought 2 different pair of Asolo boots on Sierra Trading Post. If you can time the discounts right you can get them for around $110. Mine were goretex lined so they are on the warm side with thin(lightweight) Smartwool PHD socks. Don't forget good socks too.

Sneakers New balance 990s

Dress shoes Cole Haan with Nike Air Technology

Also if you have good health ins I would suggest finding a reputable podiatrist in your area to fit you custom orthotics. Check with your ins company to see if they cover the cost. If not you might be looking at a $200+ bill.

My vote goes to New Balance. Feels like you have pillows in your sneakers

Hardly...as far as I know only the 990 and maybe a very select few other models are truly made in the U.S. 90-95% of the others are "Made in the USA with Imported Materials"

Maybe, but still better than a lot of the others.
