I’m a nurse and I love Alegria shoes. They have a removable leather insole with arch support and a ‘rocker’ outsole. They’re so comfortable but a bit pricey. However if yo google ‘alegria shoe shop’ that website occasionally has sales for the shoes and you can get a pair for about $80.

I swear by Born. I have all sorts of feet issues (fallen arches, lots of previous fractures, etc) and they’re comfortable for 10+ hours. They’re a little on the pricey side, but well worth it since most of their designs are all leather and live pretty much forever. 🙂

Alegria and ahnu are my current favorites for work shoes. I found this blog to be helpful to find cute, comfortable shoes. http://barkingdogshoes.com/

I alternate between sitting all day, standing all day, and walking all day.  I wear Merrell’s Glove line.  They make some that are a ballet flat style that I wear nearly every day.

I am a SPED teacher and love Danskos. A zillion styles and theres a good handful of super cute ones. I also like Birkenstock Gizeh sandsals, they’re super cute!

I love Softspots. Unfortunately my puppies ate them so now I have been sporting cheap Merona shoes from Target!

My job requires me to walk quite a bit, and I was killing my feet.  I didn’t want to wind up having to have bunion surgery or something, but the Danskos and the Merrills weren’t exactly my style.  That’s when I discovered John Fluevog.  *Most* of the styles are fabulously comfortable (try the Operettas family–they have Vibram soles) and if you like funky shoes, this is where it’s at!  I am a huge fan…can you tell?

P.S. Fluevogs can be pricey, but if you catch the semi-annual sales you can get some killer deals.

I’m the type of girl who can wear 3 inch heels all day. I’m a teacher and I never switch shoes. So I’m no help.

I worked at a hunting store and I walked 8 miles every day (Up & down stairs, running across warehouses etc etc) and I have flat feet — Lots of pain!

I’d suggest anything from Merrell. I wore these in particular and it was a gift from the heavens.

@Rubbs:  I know. I’m a teacher too, and you can pry my cute ballet flats and platform heels off my cold, dead feet. I do not believe in comfort over style. After that it’s a slippery slope to wooden apple necklaces and sweaters with cats on them.
