Comfortable and smart shoes - do they exist?

I'm just about to go back to the working world after years out being a mum. In the meantime I've developed knee problems that mean I need really supportive and comfortable shoes. I currently wear fit flops of all kinds at home, but I really don't think their workish things are smart enough. Can anyone suggest something which is comfortable and nice?? Is it too much to ask?

Something from Clarks unstructured?. I have a version of 'Un Cass' from this range from a few years ago. They are still going strong and are the most comfortable shoes I own, albeit fairly plain! I also see many hospital nurses wearing 'Un Loop' and, despite these probably being the least attractive design in the range, their evident popularity must be a testament to how comfy they are for folks who are on their feet all day!
Alternatively, a friend who is a consultant anaesthetist and who spends most of her day on her feet swears by M&S footglove

Thanks blodynmawr. Both of those links were surprisingly much better than I expected! I'm not sure whether I'll be able to get away with heels (I suspect I won't), but the uncass look genuinely nice. The other clarks I was less keen, but might swing by Clarks and M and S and give some a try. Are they supportive as well as comfy do you know? I had to ditch my sketchers recently because though they are very comfortable, my physiotherapist says they are much too flat...had to throw away my slippers too for the same reason!
