Supportive casual shoes for work

(22 Posts)

I do a lot of walking each day at work going from the office to various other sites and probably cover 6 miles a day.
after 2 days of wearing cheap shoes i could feel the tendons at the bottom of my foot and chilled beginning to ache
I can wear trainers and have been wearing Nike frees but they're looking a bit worse for wear and would ideally like to look a little less sporty, but ultimately foot health is my priority.

any suggestions?
I like vans but have never had any and assume they'd not be very supportive
would a fitted shoe like a pair of clarkes brogues be supportive?

All ideas welcome!!! Thanks in advance smile

People on here rave about Sketchers.

I swear by them. I have arthritis and a slipped disc. I couldn't manage without them.

I have recently bought a pair of Moshulu boots and they are the most comfortable footwear I've ever owned. I walk about 3.5 miles a day on my commute to work and they have been blissful from day one. Usually I have to break shoes in gently.

Merrell if you don't mind trainer looking shoes?

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:15:20

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:30:34

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:31:25

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:32:29

I wear Clark's brogues, can walk several miles no prob.

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:35:08

yonicsleighdriver i have had merrell in the past but more as actually walking shoes, these are nice but for some reason i can only get away with barefoot style shoes when running not walking sad

Skechers GoWalk are probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. No rubbing and go in washer. I plan to get coloured ones for the summer but won't be able to wear them to work when I don't have excuse of pregnancy.

ah thanks gallicgirl should maybe think practicality and keep the clarks for the weekend smile

fooolofbeans Sun 11-Jan-15 21:41:10

bikerunski yes i'm not sure why i didnt think of them sooner, my current black patent ones obviously wont do, i NEED a new pair smile

BikeRunSki Sun 11-Jan-15 21:43:06

I have plain black ones, but have just seen they have navy patent ones now..... grin

gallicgirl Sun 11-Jan-15 21:52:38

Also look at Rieker - they are specialists in supportive footwear and I've been in their boots 2 winters straight now, so comfortable.


But also worth looking on Amazon/ebay for sale items
