Mephisto makes some nice stuff. I completely understand your problem my mother and I have had issues. Hopefully your near a large city that offers pretty orthapedic shoes (our small town has only ugly old people shoes). Wedding shoes where my nightmare and even tho everyone thinks Im nuts I decided since where having a beach wedding we are all wearring birkenstocks. Good luck finding something.

I just bought some Bass shoes this weekend.  I haven’t worn them at work yet but the insoles press against my arches which is a lot better than other shoes I have tried.

My ex had insoles made especially for him.  You could put them into any closed shoe.  I don’t know who you’d need to see to have them, and I imagine they’d be pricey.  Sorry I can’t be much help but maybe someone else know more…

Are you talking sneakers or dress shoes? 

Naturalizers have comfy shoes that are relatively stylish compared to other comfort brands. I have a few for working trade shows where I stand 13 hours a day.

I have rheumatoid arthritis (amongst other issues, blah) and need to have comfortable shoes. I still have some pretty shoes, but when my health took a nosedive this past fall, I had to invest in a few more pairs of supportive, good shoes. I love Clarks, Merrel, and Born. Sofft also makes good shoes, and then I tend to be cuter (IMO) than the other three but they are also harder to find around me. I also only have heels from Sofft. My Clarks are all reasonably cute and so comfortable that I can teach ALL DAY long in them (and I don’t just stand there, I jump around practically).My mom and a friend have both bought a pair of ballet like flats from Clarks after I had them try mine on.

@KateByDesign:  Most of the shoes/brands are at DSW, Penny’s, Macy’s, Dillard’s etc.  I say go to the store and try all of them on to find out if they will fit your needs.  I’ve tried some of these on and they were very comfortable to me.  Others were not, IMO.  You really should try them on.  In the meantime, can you wear the comfy shoes you already have for the 3 hours you are standing and wear your stylish shoes the rest of the day?  I wouldn’t want you to quit your job because of style.
