Okay so I am on my feet everyday at work (I am currently a store manager in the mall) and I want some comfortable shoes that will look good too! I have narrowed it down to two different options, Toms and Sperry Top Siders. Do any of you ladies own either of these shoes or do you have a better option for me? Thank you in advance for your help!
Also — I don’t like Easy Spirit Shoes, I have tried quite a few different styles and I really didn’t think they were comfortable. I know a lot of people do so I guess I am the minority!
Annnd incase you didn’t know, with Toms for every pair of shoes that you buy they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need!

As far as comfy shoes go, I believe that the wider the shoe is, the better it is!
I swear by my Vans. They’re super comfy because they’re much wider. They make some cute styles, actually. I just bought these from Khols last week and they were on sale!
I’d recommend at least trying a pair of skate shoes on. I’m not a skater by any means, but they’re too comfortably not to wear. 🙂

I love my TOMS but I don’t think they are the best if you are on your feet all day. I think the Top-Siders are kind of ugly.
I would go with Dansko clogs or mary janes. Tons of nurses wear them, and chefs, they are super comfortable.

In my experience Toms don’t offer the best support for people on their feet all day. Sperrys are better support, but you should look into shoes with built in insoles/gel supports. Sketchers also has some comfy, yet non bulky options.

I’m on my feet all day and the only shoes that I can wear are Dansko clogs. Before I got them, I had terrible back pain. It got so bad that I could barely walk at times and had a hard time getting up after sitting on the couch or sleeping. Miraculously my back pain went away the week I started wearing my Dansko professional clogs! They take a while to get used to as your heel is supposed to slip out the back when you walk.

SAS shoes are fabulous! I love how they feel! They aren’t glamorous, but they are great for work!

I love TOMS, a lot. They are the comfiest shoes I’ve ever owned, and they don’t get smelly ever! They have lots of different styles now which is great – I would highly recommend getting a pair (or two)!

Thanks for the suggestions ladies! I have this thing about Skechers kind of like David Tutera and fake flowers…I just don’t like them. Since I was a kid I wouldn’t wear anything Skechers, strange I guess but it totally rules them out. And as far as the Dansko, I just don’t like how clunky they are…I know I am hard to please but that is why FI loves me 🙂
I think I am going to get myself some Toms for work and probably some Sperrys too, I just love the way the Sperrys look!
